Nothing is better than frying in lard.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.

This is about cooking, but also about gardening, and a little about medicinal food.

Its always a challenge to plan your garden for early harvest, if you are in a cold zone. I am happy that I have been able to enjoy a steady supply of fresh goodies from my garden (zone 6). First, I got asparagus, then hosta shoots, now I am enjoying goji plant greens.

Goji comes early in cold weather. It is a perennial that gives you a supply of delicious early greens and goji berries every year.

Goji greens and berries are a common vegetable in Asian countries. They are believed to have very beneficial medicinal effects. It may not be acceptable for me to discuss anything medicinal on this forum. But you can Google if you are interested in this "super food".

Interesting. I'd never given it a moment's thought, but had assumed that goji was tropical.

My climate here isn't nearly as warm as yours, but it's worth looking into nonetheless. My zone is classed as 5b by Canadian standards, for what that's worth*, and would equate to somewhere between 4 and 5 as the USDA calculates things.

*In my area, microclimates can shift your "real" climate zone a good level, level and a half in either direction, so it's the very roughest of guides at best.

Goji plant is super easy to grow. Go to a Chinese store, buy some goji greens on branches. Eat the greens, and stick the branches in soil. The branches root quickly and you will have goji greens year round from now on, every year. I think they will grow in climate zones much colder than zone 6.

 

Make sure you re-do your retirement planning. Because you will live to at least 145 years old. :D

Last night, two recipes from Andrea Nguyen's new cookbook, Vietnamese Food Any Day.  Rice Noodle Salad Bowl and Crispy Lemongrass Salmon. The combination was really great.  I ate the leftovers for lunch today and they were still delicious.  I think this is going to be a frequent dinner once the weather warms up.

Alas, Asian markets in my neck of the woods are few and far between, and tend to focus primarily on pantry goods and snack foods (there's a university here and we get a fair number of Chinese students, so it's pretty much a convenience-store demographic culinarily).

 

Google is my friend, though, so I've learned enough to be confident in saying they'll grow here.

 

As for retirement planning, mine is (of necessity) basically to work until I fall over dead, so perhaps if I eat enough goji I'll actually have to start retirement planning.

Stir fried spinach with red fermented bean curd, ginger, garlic, light soy sauce, pepper (no plated image, but it was really good).

Miso and pumpkin soup, with toasted sesame (was too mild to my liking).

Tea braised eggs and soft tofu.

Mushrooms and egg, flavored in the style of lu rou fan, with soy sauce, ginger, anise, cinnamon, bay leaves, cloves, Sichuan peppercorns, and tangerine peel (more saucy than it seems in the pictures).

Rice.
