The 140 Character Cookbook  

The other day over on Twitter, Ilona Andrews said she’d bought churizo because she’d seen a recipe she wanted to try that called for it, but now she couldn’t find the recipe so what was she supposed to do with the churizo?

I said, “Sautee it in a pan. Throw in chick peas & sautee in chorizo oil until soft. Mix sour cream over it. Eat with pita. Die happy,” which she did. Without actually dying, I should note. But OMG. It’s a recipe Ted invented a few weeks ago, and I tell you, strong men would weep. (Ilona’s response to it was: “I made it. Holy crap.” I thought that was just what we were after. :))

Anyway, so I said to Ted I’d given her the recipe and that I personally had to approve of any recipe that could be related and recommended in 140 characters.

He stared at me and said, “That’s a cookbook.”


(Go on, give me your favorite 140 character recipes. I’ll save them. Just in case. :))

140 *characters*, not words. The length of a tweet. :)

That said, that sounds delicious!

Can get it down to about 180, but...
Herring, gutted, head & tail off. Roll in flour, salt & pepper. Fry in butter on low/medium heat in until meat loosens from spine. Serve with potatoes, sour cream & cucumber salad.
I guess it could lose the cucumber salad, for another few chars, but...
The bits about gutting and head & tail really needs to stay or people might try using filets.

I'm lucky enough to be close enough to the coast where the herring and mackerel swim that I can catch them myself, so I get them REALLY fresh...
I fish from one of the bridges on the Atlantic Ocean Road.
(They added dedicated walkways to one of the 'Hulvågen' bridges a couple of years ago, just for people to fish from.)
