Some food-related (mostly) things we enjoyed this past week:
H Mart is a giant Asian grocery store that defies description. Â The produce section alone is overwhelming, with bins and bins of exotic fruits and vegetables. Â There are rows and rows of all different types of kimchi (one of Dan’s favorite things) and pickled stuff. Â Aisles and aisles of noodles and rices. Â Tons and tons of fresh seafood and various kinds and cuts of meats. Â Cases and cases of frozen food items. Â Shopping at H Mart is an experience, even if you don’t end up buying anything.
We made our own (healthier) version of a favorite fast-food breakfast: Â toasted whole wheat muffin with browned slices of Canadian bacon, melted cheddar cheese and a fried egg with slightly runny yolk. Â Ronald McDonald’s got nothing on us.
We always love finding excellent, new (to us) restaurants, especially Tex-Mex places. Â After just one visit, Lazaranda Mexican Seafood Grill has officially been added to our restaurant rotation. Â The menu is extensive and everything we tried was delicious. Â Most importantly, Lazaranda exceeded our Tex-Mex expectations of the perfect margarita and awesome guacamole.
We enjoyed a post-dinner evening swim last week and wondered why we’ve never done so before. Â Floating around the pool and watching the moon come up was a great way to end the day.
Best jambalaya ever, with smoked turkey and andouille sausage. Â We both had seconds and might have had thirds if we didn’t want to save some for lunches later in the week (when it was even better than the first night!)
