How are you spending self-quarantine?

It helps to be busy with work and with other things, rather than just sitting around.

Nothing like some fresh air and exercise.
I got both my car & truck washed and waxed this week. (Aerobics)

a lot of people's stress levels are soaring,

Especially in the big cities.
Hell I am snowed in most the winter and only get out twice a month for mail, pay the bills and groceries.
I find my solitude bliss with being able to entertain myself. (big jigsaw puzzle today after my walk)
Solitude is not for someone with an untrained mind that likes to constantly belittle other people because of their own short comings.

I see you haven't learnt. Yet...

Good to get some fresh air though.

Here, it's a relaxing day, a bit of housework and probably a cake later.

Oh I learnt a long time ago jon when you and Harry ran the Brit Bully Club here.
It seems like an inferior European complex to mask your insecure short comings.
Even the Polish members here have been engrained with it now too.
Reminds me of the gang of immature pre teenage girls on the play ground tee hee hee'ing to embarrass their classmate.
And it just infuriates the hell out of ya'll when the tables get turned on ya. Hoot !
What kind of cake are you making jon ?

Evidently not. However there is hope; you will have the opportunity to learn soon...

What kind of cake are you making jon ?

Lemon drizzle cake. Easy and always nice.

I'm looking for a recipe to use ser Koryciński in. I made a big one the other day and wonder what to do with it other than just eating or putting in a salad or Mexican wrap. The problem is, it doesn't melt, nor does it keep its shape like Halloumi. If you're wondering, ser koryciński is rather like Queso Fresco bit Polish and has lots of small holes in it.

Sounds exciting, I can't wait.
Should I expect a knock on my door at 3 a.m. by the F.B.I. ?

Lemon drizzle cake.

Is that like a Lemon Chiffon cake ?
One of those and a pot of tea and I am ready for a nap.

I looked that up, and it seems almost the same. Not as many eggs in a lemon drizzle and a little less baking powder. Usually made in a loaf tin.

I use this one. Though with ordinary sugar in the cake and icing sugar on top (no caster in Poland) and more lemon zest. It works well if you use a mixer and cream the sugar/butter like crazy (this helps make up for using ordinary sugar.

I also put some cheese puffs in. Using the ser koryciński we made (plus a bit of parmesan). It's a bit like queso fresco so doesn't melt well; they're in the oven now, so it;s a bit of an experiment.

This recipe is an incredibly easy one; works well if you add chilli flakes or black pepper and a bit of curry powder.

I know the stuff, and I tried various experiments with it. None of it worked, as it doesn't melt well, yet the texture doesn't really work in any dishes either.

WELL ? gee jon we have been waiting for the results !
I won't be able to sleep tonight not knowing how they came out.

So it's just Mexican wraps and salads really. Even after all this time here, cheese, gherkins and pickled pepper for breakfast at home is an assimilation step to far.

the results

Eatable (the Parmesan and pepper helped), and quite nice warm, though cheddar would have worked better.

Koryciński is basically queso fresco; limited use though tastes nice in a sandwich. Very easy to make if you have rennet and the right bacteria. The big plus is that it's ready to eat after a day (and you can add fresh herbs chilli flakes etc), the negative is that it doesn't keep.

The shop-bought stuff mostly comes from one cheesemaker. They win prizes for it.

Can you buy tortillas in Poland or do you make your own?

I cant imagine eating Mexican food in Europe. However, I did see a burrito stand in York, UK, but went for the fish and chips instead.

Yes, though they're 'long-life' ones.

fish and chips

A good choice.

Lemon drizzle cake.

Yum, one of my favourites :)

I've been doing some baking too. Made a bakewell tart for the first time the other week. Cream egg brownies I made for Easter, and I finally got round to making Kremówka. Apparently, it was JP II favourite cake.

I cant imagine eating Mexican food in Europe

Very popular in the UK. I love it, but I'm sure what we get here isn't as authentic as what you get in the US. Now you got me thinking of refried beans..........
