Jay: But I love your hair long!
Lindsay: Oh, I know, I just really really really need a trim.
Jay: You mean you’re just cutting a little bit off the ends? Why don’t I just do that for you?
Happy Friday, everyone.
They get a lot of crap out, roll it up in seaweed and sushi rice, and eat it.
It’s very complicated, I wouldn’t expect you to understand.
After I lived in Japan I was lucky enough to study abroad near Osaka and live with a host family that had an AMAZING cook for a mother. She taught me how to make fried rice and lots of other Japanese culinary gems that I’ll share with you here! Sushi night was a favorite, and when I moved back my family and I started making it together. It’s fun, interactive, and you can make it using whatever you’d like so that your family loves it too!
When I lived in Tokyo there was a sweet chain of Indian restaurants that my friends, family, and I frequented. I have no clue why we loved Indian food in Japan so much, but it was fabulous. I’ve never had anything like it in America, but my family and I love Indian food, and I’ve found a super duper shortcut to make relatively authentic-tasting chicken curry all the time!
My mom likes this a lot and her birthday was yesterday (she turned thirty!!), so this is in honor of her. I’m going to make curry for you soon, Mama!
Doesn’t that look delicious? I think so too! You can feel free to guess what the orange stuff is, but I’ll let you know that it’s one of my FAVORITE things to make, and I have a super easy (read: I cheat) way to make it.
What I CAN tell you is that the slaw on the left is super delicious and easy to make, and we’re going to make it now!
Awhile ago after a particularly bountiful trip to the farmer’s market, I had some zucchini and eggplant that I needed to use. My parents used to make ratatouille when we were growing up, and it was one of my favorite dishes, mainly because I got to use parmigiana to excess on top of the dish. Luckily, I’ve matured a lot since then and rarely go overboard with cheese usage.
I made this a few weeks ago after Jay and I spent many hours on a kayaking excursion that left me wondering why I’d agreed to go, if my arm muscles would ever work again, and whether or not Jay would leave me for being supremely unathletic. We were tired and cold and wanted something cozy and comforting but healthy, and this is what we came up with!
I’m happy to report that my arms are still doing well at typing sarcastic things and Jay hasn’t wised up yet. I still have no clue why I agreed to go.
