Day 13 - Lunch and Supper
Lunch consisted of a mixture of pea pods, tomato basil sauce, one wheat pierogi and a couple scoops of the cornbread mixture from this morning. I also had a piece of applesauce zucchini bread.
I saw a recipe on the web for soup using turkey wings, turnips greens, turnips and garlic, all of which I had. The recipe also included instructions for cornbread dumplings. Well, I tried cooking two batches of the dumplings (only 5 each time) and about half of them fell apart. The picture above is the turkey soup with the remaining dumplings. I added a few ingredients to the remaining mixture and I made cornbread (not pictured). For dinner I had the turkey/turnip soup, blackberry applesauce and two pieces of cornbread. It was a corny day.
We hope you enjoy our blog about 3 challenges we embarked upon to experience eating from the past. We grew our own food, hunted, gathered and preserved while trying to avoid modern day conveniences and temptation. It was challenging and rewarding! Stay tuned for updates!
