Some food-related (mostly) things we enjoyed this week:
Friday night is a good time for a homemade margarita. We made ours with Herradura Silver tequila, a sweet/citrus liqueur called Licor 43, fresh lime juice, a touch of agave nectar for sweetness, a little lemonade (because we didn’t have enough limes) and a tiny splash of olive juice. It was a refreshing way to welcome the weekend.
We had yet another amazing meal at Malai Kitchen last Saturday. Instead of my usual Stir Fried Glass Noodles (Pad Woo Sen), I branched out (for me) and tried the Sweet and Sour Crispy Noodles (Mee Krob), and now I have a new favorite noodle dish. The thin noodles were the perfect texture and everything was flavored with just the right amount of savory and spice. We even loved the tofu.
While watching the Atlanta episode of Anthony Bourdain’s show “The Layover” the other night, we were delighted to see a quick mention of the Sweet Auburn Curb Market as a place to visit in A-town. We visited the market several years ago and really enjoyed it.
We have broccoli in our garden! We planted the little guys back in the Fall and weren’t sure how they would do, since we’ve never grown broccoli before. Just about the time we started to see the florets beginning to grow, I remembered that I don’t really like broccoli (I much prefer its tiny baby cousin, the broccolini.) So I’m not sure what we will end up doing with our homegrown broccoli — maybe a beef and broccoli stir-fry, with a (lot of) tangy/spicy sauce (to mask the broccoli flavor)? We’ll definitely use it — Dan never misses an opportunity to chop broccoli.
