Scratchy Scratchy

So this place on Yelp

Sign

… and I had to try it. Just couldn’t pass it up. :)

Menu was pretty reasonable.

Basically, it’s a window. No seating, take-out only (except for two camp chairs outside). Went with the Korean style black curry.

Not much curry flavor, more like fermented bean paste. Not bad, bits of meat (not sure what kind, beef or pork), potato, onions, and carrots. A bit umami-ish in taste. The fried egg was a plus (always). Choice of canned soda, canned juice, or bottled water. Cheap eats.

Sat outside on one of the camp chairs and watched the traffic go by.

I can now say I ate at an itchy butt. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

A book I read small kid time. Kinda the situation the last couple of days, eating-wise.

Most exciting was breakfast.

I prefer over butter and Vegemite. :)

Hopefully eating gets more exciting.

Eat well.

Today’s “snack”

Mango-Cornbread Stuffed Pork  Filet

Mango-Cornbread Stuffed Pork Filet

From the “clearance” section at Diamond Head Grill. Four paws good. The mango made its presence known but did not overpower. My only “complaints”/suggestions is the stuffing was not “cornbready” enough and the pork was a little too lean. Imagine a stuffed pork belly, porchetta style. Mmmmm. One day, I may tackle a ¬†stuffed pork dish. One day. :)

Enjoy. Eat well.

Utterly Weird

The Cat brought home this turnip the other day.

Hmmm

Hmmm

Or is it udderly weird? Hee hee.

Went into a turnip stew with quinoa, chia seeds, toasted sesame seeds, shoyu, and ground pork.

Which in itself I thought was kind of weird, but the Cat liked it (tail up). A very strong turnip taste (obviously).

Enjoy. Eat well.

Improv Non-Recipes

Must be getting my creative mojo back in the kitchen. Did two weird dishes today that turned out pretty good. Brunch was pasta with faux “pesto”.

Tri-Color Rotini with Faux "Pesto"

Tri-Color Rotini with Faux “Pesto”

The “pesto” was spirulina, olive oil, Vegemite, and chia seeds. Didn’t have any cheese, didn’t really need any. Maybe try the “fake” soy cheese next time (get it? fake cheese for faux pesto). Hee hee.

For dinner, planned to make an eggplant stir-fry with bacon.

Skinny Eggplant

Skinny Eggplant

Can’t tell by the picture but these eggplant are really skinny (and kind of short), four to five inches. Couldn’t peel them, nothing would be left. Did a thin slice and added them to bacon lardon and the redered fat. After a few minutes, the skin was still tough (The Cat would chew and spitting all night). A change on the fly. Added Shao Xing wine, water, quinoa, and chia seeds and simmered for about fifteen minutes.

The Cat it  was iron chef worthy. I just thought it was a good improv when what I had in mind did not come out quite as expected. :)

Enjoy. Eat well.
