I call it Mulligatawny because it is a dead ringer for what they called Mulligatawny at a local Indian place. But it is vegetarian and has no rice in it so that's not the right name for it. Call it Red Lentil Soup or

Mortadella with Guinness bread and mustard. Its lunch time. Was using an old recipe for the bread and when it asked for 2/3 cups Guinness I obeyed. What I should have done to make it fully scratch was to turn around open the door of my second fridge and grab the tap for the stout I brewed two months ago. Sadly since I didn't do this I had to drink the rest of that tasty Guinness while waiting for the bread to rise.

green pepper sauce in bottles

Peppers Sauce Mark II. Korean long green peppers were used for this. After bottling it seemed like a waste to toss the pulp. Need to find a use for it within a week or so. Any suggestions on what to do with pickled pepper pulp?

The potato galette was done with olive oil instead of butter or bacon fat. A little chili powder makes it really tasty. Poached eggs. Bacon not made from scratch (I didn't cure it) but I know its healthy because the packaging told me it was gluten free. Which somehow makes it different than 99% of all brands of bacon.

Breakfast: 2 kinds of mango (check your local asian market) and coconut milk. The flesh of the coconut is in the toaster oven. Not sure what it will become but at least I will have it. These little "sport mangos" (on the right) are pretty good. Not as fibrous as their larger green cousins. These things were so ripe that after cutting them I just pealed the skins away with my fingers.
