Recreating this dish is super simple and contain as much acorn and as little chickpea as you wish. Here, I use 50% acorn which provides noticeable acorn taste, but still has the texture provided by the chickpeas.
Access to an array of cuts, mainly that of the leaner portions have become our go-to cuts to consume on a regular basis. Gone are the days where the household picks up a whole chicken, breaks it down, makes a pot of stock, and has several days worth of food. The truth is, most of us wouldn't know what to do with a whole chicken besides possibly making a pot of soup or roasting one whole.
With guests in town, I've been pulling out some of my favorite creations to share with them. Meatball curry, BBQ pulled pork, and Coconut baked flounder roe were a few goodies I presented to my west coast friends who took a break from the city to enjoy some R&R here in Maine. A few nights ago, I decided it was time to bust out the gluten and make some pasta from scratch.
Today I prepare to teach a blueberry cooking class in Camden at Boynton-McKay. This class is a sort of celebration of one of my most favorite fruits, the wild blueberry. This evening I will share my favorite techniques for incorporating this antioxidant rich fruit into ones diet besides the obvious sweet preparations.
Tuesday is here and it's time for another batch of kraut. Wide awake at 5 am, I headed to the kitchen, put on a pot of water for coffee and began slicing away.

There's something about sitting by a camp fire, listening to friends play music while sipping on good wine and roasting marshmallows. We feel fortunate to live close to the Common Grounds Fair which took place last weekend in Unity, Maine
