Sometimes good meals are a happy accident:

Leftover chicken breast, leftover roasted asparagus, leftover noodles, sesame oil and sriracha tossed in a bowl and allowed to get to know each other for a few hours in the fridge.

I'll have to intentionally make this again.

i had fried alligator tail for dinner tonight. i didnt cook it, because i cant cook. seemed like whoever made it at the restaurant cant either, because it had no flavor whatsoever.

One last seasonal blast of "No Reservations". That's too bad, because it's just about my favorite show:

I made some "Oaxacan brisket" yesterday. I'm not good at detailing ingredients, but was basically:

brisket
reconstituted adobo chiles
tomatoes
garlic
onions
cumin
various improvised herbs (aka what was handy)

Cooked all day, low and slow.

Made it into tacos on doubled stacked steamed tortillas, with some homemade salsa.

Since we have gone granola and are eating almost exclusively organic food, we have purchased a ton of fruit and veggies to last the winter. Last night we peeled, sliced, and froze 75 peaches. If you blanch them first the skins practically fall off.

Also...

Pretty cool trick.

I baked some stuffed manicotti with a twist: tofu ricotta.

I had made faux-cotta a few years ago and wanted to see if I could recreate it:

silken tofu
rosemary
basil
olive oil
a touch or tomato sauce
kosher salt
black pepper

I miss tofu. I've cut out soy as much as possible too.

Not a cooking story so much as an eating story but today we ordered 3 medium pizzas from Vocellis (some of my least favorite pizza but had a coupon) so I had 4 pieces at first, another piece an hour later, and 4 for dinner. I feel so bloated. /csb Gross

We sold our house and are temporarily living in an apartment..... no more sweet kitchen to cook in, but I still get to whip up a few basics.

August 15th would have been Julia Child's 100th birthday, and to commemorate the occasion Thomas Keller's Bouchon Bistro in Beverly Hills was doing a week-long menu of dishes from Child's books and posting photos of them on Facebook.

I was inspired, so I gave it a go.

For some reason, my phone was incapable of producing an in-focus image.

I'm no sure how my pork chop managed to have a stripe of un-seared flesh, but oh well. It was tasty as all get out.

I made burgers from the random leftover stuff i had cooking over the weekend.

I probably under fried the egg a little bit, but i was ready to munch and couldnt wait.

Leftover Burger

85/15 ground beef w/ a little bit of ground lamb.
bacon? bacon.
big slab of fresh mozzarella
pablano aioli (if it qualifies as an aioli)
*mayo, grilled and minced poblanos, worcestershire, balsamic, small amount of soy cauce, s&p
*let it sit for a couple of hours so it has some hang out time
Fried Egg (farm fresh from the in-laws)
and the travesty that is a store bought whole wheat bun.

picture serves no justice. i would put that aioli on cardboard and have a good meal.

i became very spoiled growing up with corn. my parents grew corn every summer and we'd pick it, husk it, cook it all in a matter of 30 minutes. I got to school and thought to myself, "Hmmm...summer time. I'll buy some corn and cook it up!" I couldn't eat it. It was so starchy.

Fried egg on a burger is absolutely delicious. I'm not sure why I don't do it more often. That being said, your right, that bun could not be more sorry looking.

I just got back from a 10 day trip to South Korea. They (and so therefore we) ate Kimchi with every meal. I'm developed a very strong liking for the stuff and I am looking for a good recipe. Anyone ever make it before? I don't really like the highly fermented kind. The fresh stuff tastes the best.

I'll ask my fiancee's labmate. He's from Korea as well and made kimchi for a pot luck once, and it was really good. May be a bit until I get a chance to ask, but when I do, I'll be sure to give it to you.

Awesome! Thanks!

I really didn't particularly like a lot of the food I ate there, but I really felt pretty damn good after eating their food for 10 days. I think we eat so bad compared to them and I found a new appreciation for rice, fruit, and veggies. Oh, and there was like 1 fat guy I saw on the whole trip. When I got back to the states I felt like I was in The Land of the Fat.

Shyster is heavily into Asian food IIRC. I'm not sure if he has a Kim chi recipe but he may chime in.

I just buy it when I want it. The pan-asian market on McKnight Road sells kimchi in 64 oz. jars.
