Cooking marathon

After the hike I went shopping at Price Rite and the co-op for 2 hours. And then (e:terry) and I began our cooking marathon.

Terry made potato goat cheese galettes (e:60460), and I made a double batch of chana masala. It almost overflowed the pans.

Together we cut up 6 onions, 8 cloves of garlic, four tomatoes, two potatoes and something like ~1800g of chickpeas.

Now I barely have to cook this week. I feel like a mom-blogger with all this meal prep.

Churros, part of a balanced breakfast

The breakfast of champions. While (e:paul) and (e:hodown) were driving to the mall, (e:terry) and I were having homemade churros topped with homemade ice cream at Las Puertas. It was just a test run but it was delicious.

I think his his Mexican hot chocolate ice cream, while mine was cherry goat cheese ice cream.

Little cakes

(e:hodown) everytime you bring these cupcakes, I'm pretty sure I eat at least a third of the package. Cookie dough is the best flavor.

Buffalo Rome

On Friday we decided to try somewhere new for lunch and ended up at Buffalo Rome, on Porter. It's where the second Cafe 59 and a million other cafes used to be. I really liked it - they had a delicious mushroom soup and an eggplant sandwich. The bread was especially amazing. Soup, sandwich, coffee and a shared dessert was only $30 for all three of us.

It was cramped inside but very nice.

What is Luiza's pierogi club? I'd want in.
image

Later at night we went to the Underground with Jeremy for the next she lives event. It was crazy packed. I've never waited so long at a bar before.
Still it was fun to see everyone there. (e:mike) and (e:libertad) you should have made it out.

At the end I got chased out by the butch security guard at the door for taking my beer with me, but luckily my legs are longer ;)

Burmese food at Lin Restaurant

We rode bikes up for lunch to Lin on Tonawanda Street, in Riverside. unfortunately while we were crossing the street I dropped (e:Paul)'s old Android wear watch and the glass smashed. It's still usable but has a ton of shards sticking out.

They had the Thai iced coffee which is amazing.
image

image
They also had a tea leaf salad. I usually eat my tea leaves anyway but this was pretty interesting.
image

Terry and I split a curry and a fried rice. We also got a million different appitizers, including spring rolls and samosas. They had extremely tiny and super spicy peppers to top everything. Yum.
image

image

Next door they had a small grocery store with a bunch of different Indian/Japanese/Chinese foods.

One of the shelves contained nothing but this nut. Apparently it's speed-y plant that gives you oral cancer. Anyone want to try?

image
And some banana blossom. How do you eat these?

Strange allure/Lebanese platter

Nothing better than some latvian food. Seriously the best food of all my people. We went to Mezza with my family because my brother is home for spring break. Terry and I split a gigantic vegetarian platter with falafel, grape leaves, a fatayer flat bread with spinach on it, fattosh salad and hummus. Healthy piggies.

image

Afterwards (e:paul) and I napped while we all waited for (e:uchina) to come in for the strange allure rave. It was in this warehouse on Winslow street, by East Ferry and Filmore.

I'm usually not excited for house music but the atmosphere and mood was pretty good Should have listened to you (e:paul) ;). The light show was crazy with flashing LEDs - you never knew where (e:uchina) was until you were touching her head.

We didn't get home sleep until 5:30 despite the parade the next day.

Dragonfruit (dragonegg)

Have you ever had a dragonfruit? It looks like I would expect a dragon egg to look like. It makes me want to incubate it and have a cute dragon pet.

image

image

We got on at PriceRite for $1.99 a pound. It has a very mild creamy taste and the coolest looking seeds on the inside. From the look of it I really thought it would have a stronger taste.


Apparently it's from Mexico and related to the prickly pear cactus. Now I know what Basra's favorite fruits taste like.

Dal Tadka

Continuing my Chetna love, I decided to make another one of her youtube dishes with (e:terry). This one is Dal Tadka, or just yellow lentil.



This recipie was also pretty easy but we had to make a few substiutions. Price Rite didn't have yellow lentil nor green chili pepper, so I used red lentil and a green pepper. No cilantro either for (e:paul).

The lentils were cooked with a teaspoon of tumeric and salt, almost into a soup. They became very foamy, I'm not sure if I did something wrong. Consistency was very good though.
image

The topping is cumin seeds, with chili powder, onion, pepper, garlic and tomato simmered together in a buttered pan. (She used ghee but I thought it'd be easier to use butter)
image

I wasn't as crazy about this one as the chana masala but it may have been the tumeric is overpowering. I thought it could use a hotter pepper and cilantro for sure, and more topping compared to the amount of lentils.

The rest of the night was spent reading more about domain driven design and event sourcing PHP frameworks. I really want to write about these because I really don't understand them.

At the Food Terminals

Last week we decided to go beyond the Clinton Bailey Market to the food terminals across the street. I'm pretty sure they're run by the same people.

Do you know they sell eggs there? Allegedly grass fed free range. There's even the used up corpse of the chicken who pooped them out.
image

The first store we went into was a weird dent and scratch reseller. They sold trim, toilets, sinks, and a thousand of the same model printers that had an Amazon label on it. Is this where your Amazon returns end up?

The second one was a restaurant food supply place. My mom used to buy bulk bags of mozzarella (that's where so many pizzas originate (e:uchina)). If you ever want five pound of pepper flakes, or mayonaisse by the gallon, be sure to stop here.
image

We tried Hydraulic Hearth again for brunch on the way back. I thought Paul ordered a coffee but it turned out to be a double shot, oops.
