How I spent my Sunday

Monday, January 28, 2008


I've had a lot of coffee this morning so I'm getting a week's worth of blogging together in one day.

Yesterday, Terry came over and so I made her a lunch of stewed lamb chop. The rosemary in the tomato sauce cut that lamby flavor. I microwaved the potatoes for a bit and then added them to the sauce and threw the whole thing into the oven for about 15 minutes.

I'm all about yogurt these days and I am constantly trying for find new ingredients to marry with this bacterial fermentation of milk. I find if I add a bit of lime juice it cuts the dairy-ness and cuts the thickness so it can be used like a dressing. Yesterday I added chopped roasted cashews and cranberries to the yogurt and then tossed in some steamed broccoli. It was alright, but I think it needed some garlic.

The Beef Enchiladas tasted great. I bought 200 grams of ground beef and 100 grams of ground pork and sauteed it with white onions and seasoning. The tomato mole was just tomato sauce with added flour, butter, dark chocolate, and other seasoning. Next time I think I'll just make a Mexican lasagna.

Oh, random tangent. I LOVE MIKA! I know it's so like 3 months ago, but I've been listening to it nonstop for a couple days now. I love their musical sensibilities.

Rancho Zabaco 2001 reserve was a real treat. I love boomy, red zins but I often find they have a bit of a harsh finish. This one was smooth and deserved much better food then I was able to provide.

The quesidillas are a work in progress. I need to add some meat to it and add more kimchi next time.
