Bifanas de Vendas Novas


Ingredientes

- 1 Papo-Seco por bifana
 - Lombo de porco
- Alhos
- Vinho branco
- Colorau (uma pitada) 
- Louro
- Sal
- Pimenta

para fritar:

- Margarina vegetal ( é utilizada uma quantidade superior à do óleo)
- Óleo


O verdadeiro segredo das bifanas de Vendas Novas é a qualidade da carne (lombo de porco) e a forma como esta é batida.


Preparação:
Limpa-se muito bem o lombo de porco retirando-se  todas as peles e gorduras. Cortam-se bifes com cerca de um centímetro de espessura e batem-se muito bem dos dois lados com um martelo de bater a carne.
É neste processo que está o verdadeiro segredo. Os bifes têm de ficar transformados numa fina película de carne,  rendilhada pelos bicos do martelo.
Esmague muito bem os alhos, reduzindo-os a uma massa. Coloque os alhos esmagados numa tigela, e adicione o vinho branco ( muito pouco é só para dar um leve gosto), uma pequena pitada de colorau, o louro, o sal e a pimenta moída na hora.
Mergulhe os bifes muito bem batidos nesta marinada e deixe repousar pelo menos meia hora para tomarem gosto.

Cubra com óleo o fundo de uma  frigideira grande e leve ao lume adicionando a margarina.
Quando a gordura estiver quente, retire os alhos e o louro que estiverem agarrados à carne e frite os bifes dos dois lados. Coloque a carne num prato e reserve.
Adicione à gordura que fritou as bifanas, os alhos o louro e o resto do vinho que ficou na tigela da marinada, deixe ferver um bocadinho para a gordura ficar com o sabor dos ingredientes que se adicionaram.

Leve os papo-secos abertos ao meio a tostarem em forno bem quente. Quando retirar o pão do forno passe ligeiramente a parte do miolo pelo molho que fritou as bifanas (este é mais um dos segredos).

Coloque o bife dentro do papo-seco e sirva de imediato! 
A mostarda é o molho mais indicado para se adicionar às bifanas de Vendas Novas, pois faz realçar os seus temperos.

Learn how to print on fabric with your home printer.


Are you ready to use your printer to print directly on fabric?  What a perfect project for some cheap art!
I used a graphic from the Graphics Fairy to print a bird image to white fabric.  Spray some heavy to medium weight card stock with spray adhesive then add your fabric.  Print your image just like you are printing on paper.

How to grow tamatoes.

When I was working as a papermaking artist I did a lot of "kitchen chemistry." I really liked to experiment in the studio and I do the similar kind of experimentation in the garden.


This season I planted tomatoes in three different plots. The first plot was a shallow raised bed of logs in a sun/shade space filled with a mix of soil and well composted horse manure. The second plot was grow bags (same sun/shade space) filled with just well composted horse manure. The third plot was an in the ground plot in full sun and against a brick wall and was covered by bark chips where I had grown tomatoes several years before and used Tree Tone organic fertilizer.
Plot one and two; the raised beds and the grow bags were doing very well, the third, in the ground plot was pretty sickly, yellow leaves and stunted growth. I needed to do something and do it fast! First I took some compost and made a ring around the stunted tomato plant. Within three weeks the plant was greening up. At the same time I made up some comfrey compost tea. Three weeks later I poured the compost tea on those same tomatoes and things began to happen!The moral of this story is that tomatoes love acid soil and the well composted horse manure soil was the perfect soil for them.

The compost tea steeping in 5-gallon buckets of water. I used old pots (see right hand side) on top to block the leaves and pine needles from getting in the bucket.

A better view of the comfrey compost tea. It's smelly and potent but effective!

The sickly and stunted tomatoes before the extra TLC of horse manure and comfrey compost tea.

TURN MILK INTO WHIPPED CREAM

BEST POEM IN THE WORLD


I was shocked, confused, bewildered 
As I entered Heaven's door, 
Not by the beauty of it all, 
Nor the lights or its décor.

But it was the folks in Heaven
Who made me sputter and gasp --
The thieves, the liars, the sinners,
The alcoholics and the trash.

There stood the kid from seventh grade
Who swiped my lunch money twice.
Next to him was my old neighbor
Who never said anything nice.

Bob, who I always thought
Was rotting away in hell,
Was sitting pretty on cloud nine,
Looking incredibly well.

I nudged Jesus, 'What's the deal?
'I would love to hear Your take.
'How'd all these sinners get up here?
'God must've made a mistake.'

'And why is everyone so quiet,
'So somber -- give me a clue.'
'Hush, child,' He said,
'They're all in shock!
'No one thought they'd see you.'

the most thankful person in heaven, or both!)

JUDGE NOT!

Remember...Just going to church doesn't make you a
Christian any more than standing in your garage makes you a car.

THE SERENITY PRAYER

GOD GRANT ME THE SERENITY
TO ACCEPT THE THINGS I CANNOT CHANGE;
COURAGE TO CHANGE THE THINGS I CAN;
AND WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.

LIVING ONE DAY AT A TIME;
ENJOYING ONE MOMENT AT A TIME;
ACCEPTING HARDSHIPS AS THE PATHWAY TO PEACE;
TAKING, AS HE DID, THIS SINFUL WORLD
AS IT IS, NOT AS I WOULD HAVE IT;
TRUSTING THAT HE WILL MAKE ALL THINGS RIGHT
IF I SURRENDER TO HIS WILL;
THAT I MAY BE REASONABLY HAPPY IN THIS LIFE
AND SUPREMELY HAPPY WITH HIM
FOREVER IN THE NEXT.
AMEN.

--REINHOLD NIEBUHR
