This New Year has been a little nuts for me. New internship, new projects, my goal to run 730 miles this year…I will be posting sporadically. For the first post of 2015, I wanted to do another bit on hosting friends for an anime marathon. The show is Tokyo Ghoul and the food is the sandwich.
When you have the time, taking the moment to make ramen from scratch is truly something beautiful. Much better than the store-bought variety that’s 1 dollar a pop. This recipe is a modified version from Half Baked Harvest, using beef instead of pork and acorn squash, but it is just as good and heart-warming (or artery-clogging, take your pick). I also want to take the time to apologize for being MIA due to NaNoWriMo and having extra work for both my internships.
I like cheese as much as the next person. So, for a lunch-date, Matt and I went to Murray’s Cheese Bar, adjacent to Murray’s Cheese Shop. I am literally going to stop apologizing for the erratic posting, but I have been doing well and honestly haven’t had much time for content creation.
Anyone who knows me know that I value making comfort food that works for you. Some people are comforted by health food. I like to take a break from health food and bust out the bacon, spaghetti, clams, and–wait, what?
I was away for a week or so, apologies for the lack of posts. After my root canal, I had to eat a liquid diet. But then I had to start getting some nutrients, so my boyfriend had this great idea to go to Polish town of Greenpoint, New York. We went to a rustic joint called Karczma and you’ve never eaten a Polish grill plate like we have.
Farmer’s markets are great. It’s fun to interact with the people bringing the food that goes to your table. Usually, my parents buy produce, such as tomatoes and cantaloupes when in season. Last week, though, I stumbled upon a stand that sells ostrich eggs and bison meat. I’m used to seeing bison in the form of ground meat, but these guys sold steak. And here’s how it went.
As you, dear readers, know, I went to Brazil over the summer and while it was winter there, it was a much more pleasant wintery experience than the single-digit temperatures Fahrenheit (well into negative teens and 20’s Celsius) we have in upstate New York. Therefore, to bring back some of the warmth of South America, I decided to attempt a feijoada, a hearty Brazilian meat stew. Due to my fridge being overrun with vegetables, I had to ad-hoc some of the meat portions, which gave me a good excuse to go outside and take some beautiful pictures of ice. As you have probably noticed, I have been out of the blogging loop for quite some time. More on that later.
