    Honestly, I have no idea what I did... I think it was like 1/2 cup teff to two cups of water. Then added sugar, cinammon, vanilla and almond extract and salt to taste..

    Plant based diet. I had a chu chee can of curry I purchased recently.. Actually, I went to a small Thai Market in Manhattan's Chinatown the other day. I purchased thai red chile, i purchased fresh kaffir lime leaves, fresh galangal and thai basil.. To the curry I added, coconut cream, thai pepper, then yucca, mushrooms, green beans, cherry tomatoes, broccoli and eggplant. Lime juice, brown sugar and finally some cornstarch. Prior to adding the veg, i had cooked the yucca in boiling water for 8 minutes, i blanched the broccoli, the green beans to ensure even cooking. Put the curry over rice noodles, chiffonade of kaffir lime and thai basil. Doesn't look like much but, it was so good. Kept the noodle separate as I will eat this for lunch in a couple of days with rice.

    Still vegan... Had a busy day of walking around. Didnt eat all day and than had a few things between 5 and 10 tonight.. Firstly, made a pasta sauce with olives, capers, a little clove, some piri piri pepper, wine. Spicy and fun. Added some pea shoots. I wanted to make the ethiopian bread, injera but, purchased whole grain teff instead of the milled flour.. So, i made a porridge tonight for dessert.. Some whole grain teff, water, almond extract, vanilla, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, oat milk.. top with a little shot of peanut butter... It was so delicious.

    I did a shop today at a local Korean run grocery store.. Lots of fun things... For example: Tonight I made a simple daal.. Onion, ginger, mustard seed, garam masala, curry, cayenne, tomato paste a little sugar, a bit of clove.. I also cooked these greens I purchased mid week.. They were called callaloo but, i don't really see that as a real name.. It was a very good.. Cooked with garlic, wine, paprika, veg stock a little homemade pickled peppers and the red sorrel.

    Exciting stuff in veggie land... Went to the local farmers market.. got there at 930... I may have show up at 6 o clock at night... place was mobbed.. i picked up asparagus and three lettuces from the same guy.. Beautiful stuff but, i was hoping for cauliflower to smoke and grill. Whatever.. This was 16 bucks. Just to give people a reference.. three heads of lettuce 4 servings and 5 servings of asparagus.. It's 2 bucks a portion. I made a ginger scallion sauce.. soy, rice wine vinegar, ginger, sesame, veg oil. The salad was the three lettuces, sorrel, pea shoots, red watercress, avocado, peeled carrots, raw asparagus sliced thin and long on an angle, with little tomato quarters.

    We are on a plant based diet.. And when I say diet, i mean, it's our diet, not a diet. Our diet does not include alcohol.. We will change that soon and maybe some shellfish in a couple of weeks but, plants for now. Well, plants and cubes of this stuff. I know, considering that beautiful pizza above, this grey block is a hard sell.. Firm tofu, hand pressed to drain, then set on a rack for the day. Made a chile oil with those red dried chile peppers at you see with general tso chicken.. Tianjin peppers, one serano sliced mixed with hot oil.. Browned the peppers and then let it cool.. In hot oil I added freshly ground sichuan peppercorns, then a little later ginger, garlic, then the sliced mushrooms, broccoli tops, (the large thick steams I cubed in large cubes and boiled in salt water before adding to the broccoli tops) some spicy bean paste, sugar, shaoshing cooking wine, that tiajin chile oil, a little sesame oil, corn starch, soy sauce and rice wine vinegar. Made a side of basmatic rice with a little ginger, salt and white pepper in it. This was really good, i will eat this again.

    Lunch 2020

    I rode a bike from Flatiron to my place in Brooklyn yesterday... It was like an hour ride and over the williamsburg bridge. It was a beautiful day... Stopped at the greenmarket in Union Square and purchased some beautiful vegetables.. broccoli picked that day, red sorrel and green sorrel, arugula flowers, red watercress pea shoots and a pretty lettuce. Biked 15 miles yesterday as well as today Here is the lettuce: Sliced the broccoli thin and kept it long... Add everything together minus the flowers and the red sorrel.. that needs to be cooked. made a miso ginger dressing... smashed ginger, add soy and sesame, a little vinegar, a little neutral oil. oh and this: Super healthy...

    Dinner 2020

    Aunts in isolation... We were invited over.. we brought the tiramisu, i made sichuan cucumber thing, we brought a cheese from Churchtown Dairy.. It was a really gooey camembert style cheese. We also brought croutons for cheese and also potato salad and beet salad ... More birthday celebration... The host threw the burgers on the grill and walked away, i flipped them after 4 minutes and my time on the grill began. They were small so we did 4 and 3.. They came back with about a minute left after the flip. The cheese was down and buns were toasting. A lot of meat consumption.. we are back in brooklyn and the wife and I during our ride home spoke of a no carb vegan, alcohol free diet. I think I am going on a three day fast tomorrow.. it's been a lot lately. Coming back to an empty fridge and no food in the house, outside of that huge freezer full of meat. Might be a good time to go vegan for a bit. The dogs were nathans. The other day i was driving around this small town trying to find my mother in law flowers for her birthday... three places in town, i parked in front of called and they had none.. So, i was just about to give up when i passed this place called, sour flower, or flowerkraut, or something like that.. Well, they have flowers and sourkraut.. so, i asked for the kraut that started it all and they suggested the original.. it has salt, cabbage and that's it.. Well, in addition to flowers, i purchased this.. we tried it on the hot dogs and it was fantastic.. really just salt and cabbage and it felt healthy and well fermented. Which reminds me I should have made my own kraut during the pandemic. My hot dog was topped with raw onions, mustard and kraut. I can't remember the last time I ate a hot dog.. it must have been at least 6 months. I was happy. thick cuts of this beautiful rye bread with lots of olive oil roasted at 400 for longer than you would think Golden beets... I essentially wrap in foil with a bit of olive oil. Then smoke and cook until a long skewer goes all the way through with just some resistance. I use to prick the beets when roasting hot in the oven but, i don't when cooking slow. We sat in the garden and then at this adorable table: put the boy up on the wall next to his mother: was slowing driving today and noticed a dear on the side of the road.. I stopped the car, rolled down the window, put it in park and sat there for like 5 minutes talking to it.. he was just staring at me, maybe 12 feet away..
