Pressed some firm tofu, then made a paste with sesame oil, soy, garlic, 5 spice, ginger, mirin, chopped cilantro and scallion. Dabbed paste on cubed tofu and baked. Sliced some nice (thick-ish) asparagus (hello, Spring). Sautéed briefly, added remainder of paste diluted with water and some white miso, covered pan and simmered a couple of minutes. Added chopped water chestnut and baked tofu cubes and served with jasmine rice. Colors were pretty, didn't remember to take photo.

Boneless chicken thighs with sauteed beet greens. These greens were so fresh that I changed my dinner plan just to enjoy them. The crispy chicken skin didn't hurt either.

Wedge salad again.

The end of the green chile pork over white rice..  Miss A made leftovers.   Fried up two tortillas and served on the side with creme. the chile is too spicy for Miss K so, we pulled frozen salmon steak out of the freezer. 

 

i love "eating for free"
