Happy Father’s Day, Dad! You’ve been there for me since I was little…
And I love you so much! It’s really hard being 3000 miles away, but I’m glad you came to visit me last November…
I hope you have a really wonderful day
Check out my dad’s buttermilk pancakes. He used to make these for us every Saturday morning. He should start a blog. He’s a great cook, he’s been running every other day (4 miles) since he was in high school, and he’s the perfect healthy role model. Maybe he’ll do a guest post someday.
Last night I made kabocha-ushi sushi yet again because we were having friends over for dinner and I needed a winning recipe. I bought 2 pounds of the $0.99/pound salmon at Han Kook (the ugly cuts that are leftover after they cut the sushi) and smeared it with a honey/mustard/lemon juice mixture. Then I baked the salmon at 350F for ~20 minutes on top of foil. When it came out I picked off all the meat and put it in a bowl. I may or may not have snitched some during this process – yum.
These were the toppings – lettuce for wrapping, jicama “rice”, sushi rice, cooked salmon, daikon sprouts, bacon bits, sauteed shredded kabocha with garlic, Costco rotisserie chicken, and soy sauce + wasabi for dipping. I also made a garlic bread (from the freezer). I now have even more kabocha converts. (FYI – this meal cost about $7 to feed 4 hungry people.)
For dessert we had Holey Donuts (review to come). Everyone loved the kabocha-ushi and the donuts. I was happy.
Not sure what my plans for today are… I might head over to the Mountain View farmers’ market this morning. I’ll do some yoga. I’ll probably walk. I’m tutoring a girl in pre-calc this afternoon. Bobby has to go to work so my day is pretty free.
Happy Father’s Day again! Go call your dad, or give him a hug if you’re lucky enough to see him today.
