Summer Saturday Cooking Practice
 peaches and koldskal

Ah, the weekend. So far it's been working out that Saturdays I sleep in, sometimes way late, which for me is like ten; so I don't wallow in bed, I get up and tidy the bedroom and the kitchen and make up a batch of koldskal.

I do:
2 egg yolks
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 pint buttermilk
2 cups greek yogurt

Whisk the egg yolks in a large bowl—or even better a pitcher, which will pour better, I use my old Brita pitcher that I've been saving for years for no particular reason, I guess for this reason—with the sugar, then whisk in the vanilla and lemon juice. [ETA: I just made this with bottled key lime juice, and it's really good.] Then whisk in the buttermilk and yogurt.

To serve, cut up a peach into a bowl and pour over some koldskal.

Put the rest in a jar for next week.

[ETA: I already changed my mind, all of the above, but for lunch after I do my lovely Saturday morning workout. You don't care when I do what, that's okay. I care.]

[ETA: I didn't do my workout, either. But I folded all the laundry and I finally washed my uniforms!]
