Some food-related (mostly) things we enjoyed this past week:
We found a great local place for Korean food (other kinds of Asian food too – their menu is huge), with kimchi that meets with Dan’s approval.
Next time you’re having steak, whip up a batch of Bobby Flay’s sauce: 1/4 cup Dijon; 1/4 cup whole grain mustard; 1/2 cup molasses; 3 tablespoons prepared horseradish; 2 tablespoons honey; 2 tablespoons ketchup; and salt & pepper. It would probably go well as a dipping sauce for roasted chicken as well.
We have a new dish for the breakfast rotation: eggs in purgatory. Heat a little olive oil in a small skillet, add a clove of minced garlic and a dash of red pepper flakes and cook for less than a minute. Add a can of chopped tomatoes (we cooked ours in 2 separate batches and used half the can per batch) and cook for 1-2 minutes. Make a well in the center of the skillet and add an egg to it, then season the egg with a little salt & pepper. Cook until the egg is done to your liking (we like ours with the yolk still a bit runny.) Serve with toast. (We served ours with a little spinach too.)
Planters’ “Sustaining Energy Mix” packages of nuts and chocolate make a great snack, with 10 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber. Apparently they also make a pretty good cat toy. (No, we didn’t let her eat any.)
