Mute Monday

When have you known me to be mute? Hee hee. Christmas shopping for something “Doraemon” (for one of The Cat’s friends). Didn’t even know what a “Doraemon” was until  a few days ago. Nothing at the mall. On the way to an out-of-the-way shop … lunch. Shutting up now.

Enjoy. Eat well.

This past Friday treats, happens most Fridays, someone brings something to the office. Have to remember not to eat breakfast on Fridays. :)

At kind of a dive bar downtown.

Crowd Barricades

Crowd Barricades

First place I’ve been in where crowd control barricades are part of the decor. Burger wasn’t bad, might go back later, although they ran out of fries the day I went (what kind of bar runs out of fries, ever?). Sigh.

Napa Cabbage with SPAM

Napa Cabbage with SPAM

On average, I can make an average of six dishes out of one can of SPAM. Add a little to stir-fry vegetables, good to go. My theory is SPAM is umami. In my dictionary, if you look up umami, there’s a picture of SPAM. Hee hee.

Lunch

Lastly.

Today's Church Meal

Today’s Church Meal

One crab cake, salad with pears, walnuts, and blue cheese, oven baked potato wedges, and vegetarian cake, artichoke based. Pretty awesome, If I wasn’t working in the church office counting the collection, I’d volunteer in the kitchen just to learn from the chef. Impressive.

Finished your Christmas shopping? Haven’t even  started yet, more than ten days left, plenty of time. Hah! :)

Enjoy. Eat well.

Improv Day

Better known as cleaning out the kitchen.

Lunch. Inspired by a dish (Cong You Ban Mian, 葱油拌面), noodles tossed with hot oil and green onions. My favorite in Shanghai. Bear in mind, inspired, not copied. Used whatever was in  the pantry, refrigerator, and herb pot.

Green Onions and Young Ginger

Pasta with Bacon Fat, Green Onions, and Ginger

Pasta with Bacon Fat, Green Onions, and Ginger

Boil pasta per package, drain, add bacon grease green onions, and ginger, toss, salt and pepper to taste. This may be one of my new “go-to” dishes, sooooo simple, but soooooo tasty. :)

Dinner, again cleaned out the refrig. Yam, carrot, potato.

Carrot

Carrot (Harvey-sized)

Bigger than my chef knife.

So umm Santa, if you not too busy, I’ve been kinda good this year, maybe a loft style kitchen (we have a galley sized one now), and some cookware (cast iron dutch oven come to mind). No harm in asking, just in case.

Now the mad scientist dish. Inspiration is cucumber and crabmeat namasu. The Cat’s still on a not-raw vegetable kick, so my “mash-up”.
