Here we go!
- The week always starts with tangled apron strings. When will I learn to put my aprons in net bags or something before they go into the dryer?
Homemade udon noodles
Finished noodle dish: udon noodles with pumpkinseed oil sauce with garlic, ginger, and cilantro.
Whole wheat pasta with green zebra tomatoes and peperonata sauce
Black forbidden rice + eggplant and oyster mushrooms in garlic sauce
green zebra tomatoes
Oyster mushrooms from Wiltbank Farms. Oh, I love that Gary Wiltbank, he's the most awesome 'shoom grower ever.
Tofu pockets with greens (well, not yet) and that marvelous pumpkin seed oil sauce
The famous pumpkin seed oil! That bottle cost $50!!!!! But so worth it. (It's frosty from the freezer.)
A little end-of-the-night bowl (OK, ramekin) of Tom Kha soup with banana flower. Coconut milk, galangal, lime leaves, ginger, garlic, aricula, carrots, oyster mushrooms, banana flower...oh my. Best late night kitchen-scrubbing snack ever.
