First off: didja notice that the url to this site is now official?  Thanks to the kind, honorable and supportive Bruce T. Herbert of Newground Social Investment, Iron Shawna has an official domain space in the interwebs!  There are no words…

This week’s video is a follow up to a facebook conversation about oddball ingredients in eggs.  Thekla told me that she often adds pumpkin (among other things) to eggs, and I suddenly remembered some pumpkin that some friends had grown and given to me in a freezable portion.  I had also recently received some coconut milk and decided to treat myself for diligently exercising and taking care of my health as of late.

So: pumpkin in eggs? Sure. Pumpkin in pie? Yeah, ok. Pumpkin pie in ice cream? Hellzyess!!

And in the wake of sweet anticipation…I have some fun podcast and video material waiting for editing and posting soon:

  • Pam Huber of Seriously Yum laughed with me about stocking pantries.
  • My friend Susan Keene from Mountlake Terrace, Washington told me about how she and her husband get creative on a Paleo diet during their hectic working and studying schedules.
  • My friend Luisa Walmsley (who is in town visiting from her exciting life in Afghanistan) let me hit the record button while we cooked fresh, egg-less noodles with arugula pesto, cranberries, Beecher’s Honey Blank Slate cheese, and buttermilk. Let’s just say we used a vodka bottle as our rolling pin and leave the rest to your imagination for now…

Can you just taste the new material?  I can.  For now, here is how I made my pumpkin pie ice cream:
