Leftover Ricotta Cheese

I hate purchasing certain foods because I know I will only use a small amount and the rest will languish in the refrigerator. When it becomes unrecognizable, it will be tossed. I am fortunate. For me food is "cheap" entertainment. I can afford to toss a few things. That being said, every time I toss something, I can just hear my mother.
"Why did you let that food spoil? Food is just too high (Southern speak for 'It's expensive) to throw away. Baby, I don't care how much money you make, you just never know."
Now that you have "heard from my mother". I'll admit that I have a hard time tossing food. There are certain foods like, ricotta cheese, celery, and parsley that I have issues with. I know when I purchase them, most of it will be wasted.

A few days ago I purchased ricotta cheese to make Ricotta Chive Bread. I must say the bread was excellent, but left me with 1¾ cups of ricotta cheese.

Imagine how happy I was to find this recipe for Soft Scrambled Eggs with Fresh Ricotta and Chives. It also calls for chives and I truly have an "infinite" supply of chives. If you don't have chives, I say don't sweat it. You can omit them, use basil or oregano. Also, to make this a little more substantial, sauté some spinach and add eggs to the spinach. If you have parmesan cheese, don't be afraid to grate a little of it.

Soft Scrambled Eggs with Ricotta Cheese and Chives

Serves 2.

Ingredients:

4 large eggs
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh chives
¼ teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon butter
½ cup ricotta cheese
1 small baguette or 4 slices of bread

Directions:

1. Whisk together eggs, chives and salt.

2. Melt butter in a heavy medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add eggs and stir with a heatproof spatula or wooden spoon until eggs are almost cooked. Add ricotta cheese and stir until ricotta is almost mixed in. Clumps of ricotta should still be visible.

3. Toast bread and serve.

  5. -- me drumming along to this classic Police track. A simple drum cover? You're having a laugh! -- This is a Copeland masterpiece of understatement. I have always found this incredibly difficult to get right. It's those damn pauses -- hands up if you have a nightmare trying to get 'em spot on, especially with the awkward accents just before the backbeat comes back. Both my hands are up.

    Anyway, the amazing displaced bar after 0'46, with the backbeat suddenly on the 3 and 1, and with the ride bell intro, just blows my mind. The other one after 1'57 is a little bit easier, with the beat coming back to 2 and 4 (and another ride bell intro), but it still tests your internal clock in a big way. Sting's vocals do not help with the timing in these bits either, for the hapless drummer! Brilliant stuff by the whole band.

  8. No es la tecnología la que crea desempleo, sino el uso de los avances tecnológicos para aumentar los beneficios de unos pocos a costa de la mayoría en lugar de usarlos para mejorar la vida de la gente. No hay una guerra de las máquinas contra las personas, hay una apropiación por una élite del avance conseguido por todos para someter a los demás. No podemos volver a la vieja consigna de los principios de la primera revolución industrial de romper las máquinas, sino organizar la resistencia social para hacer encaminar tanto la investigación como el desarrollo tecnológico en beneficio de la humanidad. Para lo cual, de nuevo, estamos obligados a retomar la lucha por los medios de producción, la lucha por la apropiación de la plusvalía, la lucha de clases, en suma. En otro entorno, en una realidad absolutamente distinta, en una economía en la que el sector financiero se ha hipertrofiado de manera monstruosa... es verdad. Pero, hoy como ayer, son personas frente a personas, clases sociales frente a clases sociales, grupos humanos frente a grupos humanos. Las máquinas no tienen la culpa, no la han tenido nunca.
