Neither KN nor I were very hungry, come supper time; however, scallops or shrimp would be excellent additions, and a salad or bread would be all it needs on the side. Also, if I were to toss some kind of seafood in, I might also add in a tiny bit of crushed red pepper, for a subtle kick.

This was good (KN gave it a huge grin and a definite "This is good!"), despite the lemon being a little too pronounced and overshadowing the garlic and basil, and it has been added to the rotation.

Getting Reacquainted with My Kitchen

And not burning the house down, even.

Last week, my roommate's parents were over, and when it got to be about time for food, I wrote down what's required for fitfool's Chickpea-Tomato-Cucumber-Olive Salad, and went shopping. I too added kalamatas, as FF did, and tossed in feta as well, to give it a little boost. Two days later, we made some tortellini and threw them into the leftover salad with a little additional balsamic and olive oil, which made for a very nice, very filling dinner. I kind of want to see how it would do with couscous in place of the garbanzos, and maybe some pearlini in place of the feta...

Tonight, I decided to use some of the potatoes we got over the weekend, and roasted them. The recipe I found called for curry powder, but since we currently lack that in our pantry, I substituted in garam masala. I thought about adding in some fresh lime juice before tossing the spuds in the oven, but didn't -- however, KN put some on his when he served his plate, and it was good, so I think I will go ahead and tweak that into the recipe next time. It's a very simple thing anyway, which gave me room to up the spices for our tastes, and think of other things to add once I had a feel for how the basics would taste.

Okay, that's too cute.

The King of Pancakes.

It's worth it to scroll through the picture-set -- there are some really awesome things in there!


...I don't think they'll be asking if one wants chips with that.

Would you care for a cheese sammich?

How about some PopTart sushi?

Not your thing? How about PopTart soup? Pop Tarts Tartare?

The PopTart cafe opens in NYC.

I'm a party pooper -- the only PopTart I enjoy is the Chocolate Fudge, and even then, I eat them rarely. Then again, when am I ever the target demographic? <grins>
