Korean Style Fried Tofu Salad

I got a new digital camera this week so I’m back in business on here.  I made a large portion of this meal for my lunch this week, and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.  Enjoy!

Classy Dirty Rice

This is a white collar play on a staple blue collar meal.  To expand on that a little, I’d say that this dish lives somewhere between a traditional preparation for a risotto and for dirty rice.  Enjoy!

Garden Tomato and Mixed Greens Salad

A few of our neighbors have particularly green thumbs, and I’ve been really impressed with the productivity over their garden since the beginning of Spring this year.  They were gracious enough to share (or offload?) some of their bountiful tomato harvest this week.

Here’s a very simple salad I put together using said tomatoes – I think the colors were pretty amazing. Many thanks to Michael and Jennifer for sharing them with us.

Garden Tomato and Mixed Greens Salad

  • Various garden tomatoes
  • Baby Spinach
  • Baby Kale
  • Arugula
  • Manchego Cheese, Shaved
  • Olive Oil
  • Balsamic Vinegar

Shrimp Stuffed Flounder

Flounder Haul

I went flounder gigging on the coast with my friends this weekend.  It was my first time, and I definitely had a blast.  While we cooked quite a bit of the flounder over the weekend, we did manage to take some home with us.  Here’s the first of a few meals that will stem from that haul.

Bloom

I had been tooling around with a bunch of song fragments for the past few months.  While it took awhile, I finally got one headed in a direction that I’m happy with.
