Some food-related (mostly) things we enjoyed this week:
Friday night is a good time for a homemade margarita. Â 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. Â It was a refreshing way to welcome the weekend.
We had yet another amazing meal at Malai Kitchen last Saturday. Â 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. Â The thin noodles were the perfect texture and everything was flavored with just the right amount of savory and spice. Â 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. Â We visited the market several years ago and really enjoyed it.
We have broccoli in our garden! Â We planted the little guys back in the Fall and weren’t sure how they would do, since we’ve never grown broccoli before. Â 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.) Â 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)? Â We’ll definitely use it — Dan never misses an opportunity toÂ chop broccoli.
