A load of balls for you today :o)
Two recipes from one of my favourite cookbooks.
The More-With-Less Cookbook was published in 1976 and is a collection of recipes from the Mennonite community in America. The book has a Christian bias but I think its message is universal -that we should live simply so that others might simply live. It is all about using less of the world's resources. The recipes are for simple, unspohisticated fare. There is plenty for vegetarians and those on a budget. Many of the recipes have become regulars in my house; keema curry, baked lentils with cheese, honey-baked chicken, Chinese fish and vegetables, sprouts salad (beansprouts not brussels) and potatoes with peas and ham. I've already shared three recipes from this book here, here and here. It isn't a pretty book. There are no pictures and being American it uses cup measures. I don't mind this and there is a useful conversion chart. The recipes are written out in a very user-friendly way and the spiral binding makes it even friendlier.
If you are concerned about how we in the first world are over-consuming the rest of the world's resources, if you are concerned about how much money you are spending on food each week, or if you are keen to cook more of your meals from scratch then you will find this little book a useful resource.
Sorry about the blurry photo.
Walnut sized balls. My children liked them. Not really my cup of tea though.
Next was Cheese Ball. This is really just a version of potted cheese, that old-fashioned way of using up stale bits and pieces of cheese.
I used smoked paprika instead of garlic salt.
It's about the size of a grapefruit. We ate some of it on oatcakes for lunch. Very nice too, mind you a simple bit of sliced cheese would have been just as nice.
