In the Kitchen: Winter Vacation 2012

Considering the amount of vacationing the Harrington's did throughout January and February it seemed more sensible to combine the 'In the Kitchen' series.

Highlights of the Winter Vacation months were soups such as a fabulously delicious and rich Tomato, Spinach, Mushroom and Chickpea Pasta Soup which had a flavor boost of fresh basil thanks to Mike's aquaponic adventures and the work of Kimchi (the long-lasting goldfish of 519 Galma).  Another soup that turned out well (and abundant) was a traditional New Year's day soup in South Korea called ddeok-guk 떡국 (rice cake soup).

The vacation also saw a couple more dominations of the spent grains from Mike's brewing operations. This time, domination came in the form of Spent Grain Pancakes and Peanut Butter Spent Grain Cookies.  However, that wasn't the only sweet dish to grace the tastebuds of the Harrington duo and friends, this vacation also welcomed in a few pots of warm, thick, comforting Rice Pudding.
