proper/make
everything i eat, most of which i've made, somewhat properly
grilled taro and sticky rice from bhan kanom thaigrilled . so good!
jason’s pad see eww from pa-ord. even “mild” it was way too spicy for him so we ended up taking it home and he ate all of our pad woon sen appetizer, which was ok because the portions are very generous.
eaten the next day over rice, with some greens.
Boat noodles (small) from Pa Ord. Supposedly the best in town, although I’m perfectly willing to do a full tasting. The broth was so complex!
Rice porridge with furikake and zha cai
I’ve been waking up at 7 every morning for weeks (am I finally a grownup now?) and so when I had a 10am meeting in Glendale, I actually had breakfast. Trader Joe’s swiss croissants (why do they come in 3s?), mango, and iced tea. I’ve been off the coffee for all of August and I could not be more proud of myself.
Possibly the blandest thing I’ve ever cooked: Okra, corn, and tomatoes from this recipe. I don’t usually do recipes but since I’ve never really made okra before I followed this fairly closely, only subbing out the brown sugar for a squirt of honey and upping the spices/seasoning. .25 teaspoon of curry powder? for realz, why even bother?
despite my changes, it was still superbland and I had to add in my own roasted chile sauce and fish sauce to be even mildly palatable. it just makes me sad for white people in the 50s. in the future, okra in jambalaya/curries only.
salmon skin roll and california roll from nabeeya sushi. it was a really nice day so i decided to walk farther than i would usually venture for lunch. great hidden sushi gem at the end of santee alley, just past 8th and los angeles. you can order by text!
wonderful plucot from the farmer’s market, about 90% plum and it is crunchy! like a giant gooseberry or a round carambola; super refreshing.
semi-lazy hot weather meal: naan, lamb kofta from trader joe’s, and long bean salad that i made the night before. just blanched some long beans (from the farmers market), chopped garlic, sesame oil, and some black vinegar in the fridge overnight.
