I always feel uncultured because I never watch those political/discussion/news shows. I should so I'd be "up on the issues", but it's always just a bunch of people screaming over each other and I can't take it.


So I ordered a pallet of flour that was supposed to come in on the 26th. On the 26th, when I go to unload it, they say "Nope, no flour on this truck." So, today, I go to unload the flour that I supposed was coming in a day late (because, damnit, I'm a baker, I neeeed that flour). Today, they say "Oh, we don't get a truck from that distributor today, but we got the flour invoice yesterday, just not the product." That means they sent the pallet somewhere else (into the ether?). Had I known this yesterday, I could have gone somewhere else to pick up some emergency flour, but since I just found out today, everything has screeched to a halt while I wait for somewhere that sells 50lb bags of flour to open for the day.


Here is a recipe for some awesome pasta sauce.

.5 c olive oil
2 med red onions, chopped
2 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
5 cloves garlic, crushed
1 bunch celery (including leaves), chopped
3 small red bell peppers (all peppers seeded and chopped)
2 anaheim peppers
2 serrano peppers
2 cans of diced tomatoes
1 T oregano

Saute onions, carrots and garlic in olive oil. When onions are beginning to become tender, add celery. Cook a few minutes, stirring, then add peppers. When peppers become tender add tomatoes and oregano and allow to heat through. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

This is a sort of "saltsa" which is a Greek pasta sauce, to make it a bit more Italian, you can add tomato sauce or tomato paste and water, and red wine.
