When you are on a roll…then let it roll. Wednesday arrives. I have been cooking and experimenting. Baked Tofu for the first time successfully. Made béchamel sauce and added cumin as I was out of nutmeg. That tasted pretty good. (Very light addition of cumin.)
Minnesota went to the caucus last night in huge numbers – record numbers, in fact. That was encouraging to see. I stood outside along with many hundreds, if not a couple of thousand people, and people seemed in good spirits. It was cold out, but nobody seemed to mind. Most encouraging to see was the enormous numbers of first time voters who participated.
Anyways…Here’s another recipe that mayhap one of you have heard of or not. It’s worth posting as a curiosity from the Kitchen Kompanion: recipes from the Ladies of the Lansing Reform Christian Church. This is a vintage cookbook that is well worn and used by me.

Maybe I should make this cake? (Who would eat it?)
And there is the recipe for tomato soup cake! You read it here. A little wackiness on Wednesday to lighten the day.
Have a good humored day! Thanks for stopping by my kitchen.
