As the name of my blog might suggest, I love salads. If you want to make me happy, give me salads, oat bran, and kabocha (I actually haven’t had kabocha in over a month). I’ll do anything you like.
After securing a profusion of new vegetables on Saturday, I started creating complex salads filled with fresh veggies and fresh ideas. I made this fine specimen that very night…
- base: organic iceberg and red leaf lettuce
- organic cluster tomato (whole foods)
- watercress (han kook)
- enoki mushrooms (han kook)
- corn (han kook)
- dressing: raw peanut butter dressing
I topped it off with my raw peanut dressing and it was heavenly.
While I was at Han Kook (Korean grocery) I happened upon these…
I’m not sure what they’re called. They are slightly sweet, fried, chip-like Korean snacks. They have black sesame seeds in them. They are undeniably addicting, and probably quite dangerous in large amounts. They come in a smallish bag though (probably only 3 servings) so I was able to buy them without fear… and now they are gone (tragic).
I used to eat these at my friend J’s house in high school. I loved going to her house not only for the good company, but for the amazing food. Her mom was a wonderful cook and introduced me to all sorts of exotic Korean dishes. I think that’s where my love of food was cultivated. They thought I was so funny because I didn’t like rice, even back then.
I actually have more things that I want to post about (salads, exercise, yoga, books, and more!) but I’m going to hold off so that maybe I can start posting once a day again. Here are some more words for you!
- blog – from 1998. short for weblog (from as early as 1994 – but not meaning online journal), which is (world wide) web + log. this one’s pretty self-explanatory
- bagel – comes from Yiddish beygel, which is from Middle High German boug- = ring, bracelet. bagel = small ring/bracelet. cool!
