Man, is the St. Patrick's thrift store trashed or what? I got this vintage classic there yesterday.Look at these fine Berkeley bitches that wrote it! Parts of it read more like a non-fiction book than a cookbook. There is a LOT of talk about meditation. Also a ridiculous passage about packing lunch for your man and how you should include, like individual salad leaves and little packages of dressing and sesame seeds. And "score" his orange ahead of time for easy peeling.
For some reason the "guys" section sign cracks me up.We found this CD there. Mysterious.
Irishman of the year! Every year.
I ate more crabs! $3.99 a lb at Sunh Fish.
Here they are, traumatizing me by battling in the sink. They were cracking each others shells! Babs was trippin'.
I made a kabocha soup inspired by Laurel's Kitchen. All their recipes have one weird ingredient like "tivoli yeast" or something like that (what is up with the use of powdered milk for everything?), so it was really just loosely inspired. Plus, I used chicken broth to cook the kabocha. I sauteed onions, then added broth and kabocha. Then some ginger and cumin, and salt and pepper of course. I pureed it.
We had some delicious, fresh, soft tofu from SF market so I added some of that to make it creamy. Then buttery croutons on the top. It doesn't look so hot but I swear it was really good and took about a half hour.
I also bought expensive rambutan at SF market. This is an awesome fruit! I'm hooked on the peeled-grape tartness.
It's fun to say "rambutan". Try it. Say it!
