Made this last night for myself and John, and tried to make "Taco Bell"-style homemade tacos....turned out pretty well, and it was cheap to boot, since I had all the seasonings already.

When I was a little girl, visiting my mom's parents in rural Ohio, my grandmother would always make a delicious strawberry-rhubarb pie during those hot August summer nights. My mother was treated to the same thing at her grandparents' farm, when she was young. It's a family tradition and recipe, and was one of my best memories of visiting them. Now I'm making my own, with fresh rhubarb and strawberries purchased at the local farmer's market.

Stir-fried pork and eggplant, thai-style.

Recipe. )

J really liked this one. First time I've cooked eggplant, and first time I've tried a more Thai-flavored style of sauce. I think next I'm going to be experimenting with coconut milk and trying a chicken and mango Coconut Satay. :p

Without being too TMI, it's the time of month where all I can think about is food/sex/cleaning my apartment, not necessarily in that order. Tonight, having two out of the three already sated, I'm cooking a mediterranean meal: Lamb Gyro with Tzatziki, feta, and chopped onions/tomatoes over pita bread. Because it's so warm this weekend, to drink we have iced mint tea with orange blossom honey, and for dessert we have half of a chilled crenshaw melon. ^^

Wow, it's actually been a little while since I've updated. J and I caught the sickness (probably swine flu) and have been out of commission for like the...past 2 weeks. We're *just* now starting to feel better. I'm back at work after missing nearly all last week. Fun fun!

Cut to spare flist from non-amazing food techniques )

Other than that, now that I'm finally feeling better, I'm hoping to get back to writing soon. Then we have, like...ten million birthdays to celebrate this next month, in June, in addition to Father's Day. My brother's, my Aunt's (I have only one Aunt, so she's special), one of J's sister's, J's niece, three of our friends, two of our friends' kids, etc. Oi.

Meme time.

Ganked from [livejournal.com profile] redbrunja, and because I have some new peeps on my flist that I'm not familiar with or haven't spoken with, before.


Go to it! Don't be shy. ^^
