I only recently had the idea to use a Dutch oven in a grill. We're exploring emergency back-up plans so I baked some bread in a DO in our gas grill. Actually came out better than when it's baked in the house oven. It may become our go-to baking oven this summer.

Baked shrimp, it’s what’s for dinner since I’m alone. Had some roasted asparagus as well. And a stuffed artichoke thanks to my cousin's curbside pickup service

A picture is indeed worth a thousand words, looks good enough to eat!

It is one of my all time favorites!

Melt a stick of butter, crush 3-ish cloves of garlic and pour into a 9x13. Slice lemons fairly thin to cover the bottom of the dish and top with raw jumbo shrimp. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning mix and bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Voila! Shrimp come out perfectly cooked. You can pour this over pasta or eat as is with some crusty bread to sop up all that buttery lemony sauce.

Those cookies look delish!

So evidently flour is the new toilet paper crisis. I found a local mill about 2 hours south of me and have some ordered. Family business, stone millers. They offer curbside pick up, next time may take a ride just for the hell of it.

No shortage of flour here, but I had to send a 5# bag to my son in Alameda, CA. We have an Amish bulk store 3 miles from us that has pretty much kept up with the supply of staples. All my best to everyone!

When this first started, my wife came home from shopping and said that most everything was in the grocery store except paper products, disinfectants, and flour. As she was checking out she mentioned that the woman watching over the self-check. The woman said that everyone must be using the time to learn to cook. Then she pointed to the bakery racks in the deli and they were full.

At Walmart, she said the bin that held bolts of cloth were empty, too. He'd never seen that before.

So, stay home and learn to cook and sew.

Ribs

While wandering around Walmarts meat dept. this morning I came across two discounted racks of ribs, did not have the heart to just walk by them. Here are the results.

Focaccia

Not just any old recipe. This dough is made with only self rising flour, baking soda and full fat Greek yogurt! Obviously spices in the flour, I added fresh rosemary and basil as well. Topped with grape tomatoes, fresh chopped garlic, red onions that I cooked down first.

Grazie! I had some Merlot. I made an herb one as well.

The recipe follows, pardon what may be over simplification, I had to help my brother out.



Basic dough

1.5 cups self rising flour
1.25 cups plain greek yogurt
1/2 tsp baking powder
Spices/herbs

Couple things:
The dough is VERYVERYVERY sticky!! Have some extra flour on the side
to coat your hands to mix. You cannot use a mixer for this. Also
flour your counter/board when you kneed after mixing.

I find using a large wide plastic bowl works best over glass or metal bowls
to mix the dough.

Procedure:

Add spices and kosher salt io the flour before adding yogurt. The one
I made this morning I added the rosemary and basil you gave me,
chopped finely, then oregano, garlic powder, kosher salt and Italian
seasoning mix right into the flour. Stir well to combine

Line a pan (I've used 9" cake pans and today used an 8" square
aluminum pan) with parchment paper, do not grease it.

Add yogurt to flour and flour your hands and mix well Once it is
mixed dust clean surface with some additional flour and kneed a couple
more times. Place dough into pan and use your knuckles to make slight
dents into dough and let sit for 15 minutes.

While dough is sitting I preheat oven to 425 degrees. By the time the
oven is preheated the dough is about ready to bake.

Before putting into oven I add whatever extra toppings to it. Drizzle
lightly with olive oil and an extra sprinkle of Kosher salt.

Bake 18 min 425 deg*

*The caveat to the baking time depends on what you top it with. When
I add things like cherry tomatoes onions olives etc I find it best to
cook the items down in a pan first, season with spices. You will need
to bake for a longer time, I usually find it will take an extra 5-6
minutes. You want to make sure the color of the dough is a nice
golden brown.
