Celery Syrup:

Made a simple syrup (2 cups sugar/1 cup water).  Ground 2 teaspoons celery seed, steeping about an hour, then strained.  I have one of those “gold” coffee filters which fits perfectly into a 2-cup liquid measuring cup

Pepperoni Quiche:

Pepperoni Quiche

Shredded a pound of Cheddar, cut a bunch of pepperoni into thin strips (need a kitchen scale).  Added 4 eggs mixed with about a cup of milk.  Baked @ 400 degrees for 50-55 minutes.

Grilled Chicken:Pounded a chicken breast thin, added pepper directly to breast, covered with flour and rubbed.   Fried.   Good flavor, a little oily.
