Chapatti Bread

Aww - I love Hillbilly Housewife - she is sooo cool, makes me wanna be a Hillbilly, almost!

So, my step-daughter and I tried making chapatti for the first time today, to mop up a leftover curry. It was soo easy!! I cup white flour, 1 cup wholemeal flour, 2 tbsp olive oil, and 3/4 cup water.

Mix, divide into 12 balls, leave for an hour (this is what makes them soft), roll, then fry really quickly. They were amazing!

You could pick up fresh produce at your stops and dehydrate them. Then all you have to do is seal them away from moisture to keep them fresh. Use a air tight container or I like the vacumn packing system for that.

Then you could cook on deck with the solar oven you have made

This little voice kept telling me "Palm oil, bad!" and while I had it confused with hydrogenated things, the US Dept. of Agriculture, who occassionally have the right information about foods, say: "Palm oil is not a healthy substitute for trans fat."

Palm Oil Not a Healthy Substitute for Trans Fats / April 15, 2009 / News from the USDA Agricultural Research Service

Nutella still will be on my no-buy list. I'm sure the odd spoonful won't kill me, but I really try to pass on anything that 'would result in similar unfavorable levels of LDL cholesterol and apolipoprotein B (a protein, attached to fat particles, that carries bad cholesterol throughout the bloodstream). That's when compared to consuming either of the diets enriched with canola and soybean oils high"

I wonder if I take a healthier nut butter and add in cocoa or chocolate powder....

Poutine is great after a pubcrawl (though pizza is far better), but cuisine it ain't!

While it's not cheap, there is a Nutella alternative for the diehards, particularly if they also happen to be fond of dark chocolate. The organic feed store we frequent also has organic dark chocolate & hazelnut spread that contains no hydrogenated/partially hydrogenated/modified oils. It blows my mind to see Nutella commercials hyping it as a "healthy" breakfast food for kids. This other stuff still has sugar in it (organic cane), but is still better for you healthwise.

You know, we picked up the most amazing truffles a while back, and they were basically made with coconut oil (virgin unrefined is best) and cocoa. Coconut oil is amazingly good for you, and very tasty.

What about an EasiYo? Cheap to buy NZ$30 (US$20). From what I have been told, no need to source fresh yogurt culture to start a batch or boiling up milk to specific temperatures. There is a wide variety of flavours sold in powdered form to use plain, greek, flavoured etc etc. And as these are powdered they are light and easy to stow long term. Not sure but I believe no refridgeration required for them that do not have that option onboard.

I am planning to buy one for our cruise...anyone currently used one?

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!! SENSATIONAL!!!!!!!!!!!

We brought the city supplies of Greek style (NOT the low fat) and it is utterly terrific! We bought about 50 sachets.

All the flaovoured ones were sugary and crap. The Greek one is perfect and you can add fruit, honey, anything. Plus we add Dill and have as a dip with crackers. (or Dill and Garlic Mmmmmmm)

the only problem is we haven't been able to buy the powder since.

I understand its available in England.

The idea of using some ofd the previous culture and milk poweder is workable but isn't the same. Similarly we gave up useing only half a sachet with added milk powder.

You just have to take the full supplies from home! Buy plenty.

GREAT thanks Mark that was a resounding YES for EasiYo from you guys

Yeah I was thinking on the Greek style (low fat - sorry shhhhh don't tell Kevin) for the reasons you mentioned. Thought it would be the way to go.

There is so much you can do with yoghurt to hand to make a tasty meal!

esy yo

Hi Guys and Gals,

I've had an esy yo for years here in oz, but I was wondering if you can get the powder in the states or do I have to take a stack of it with me? As it's name says it's soooo easy. Yep greek mix is the way to go...you can also get an ice cream mix for it , if you have a freezer onboard.

Hungry now!

J
