I neglected my blog. I’m sorry, blog.

We’re moving to a bigger apartment soon and that is good news. I’ve been cooking up a small storm in the old place though, so here’s a little “taste” of that. Ha ha ha!

chicken wings

spaghetti & meatballs!

sushi

You know why? Some fool on the floor below my apartment foolishly left something on the stove and then wandered off. Obviously it got way burned and way on fire and the whole building STINKS. I’m pretty sure this is the same man who is stealing our Sunday newspaper because on my way home tonight I saw him fleeing the scene (ie our building) like a guilty man and it was the same dude who I saw with our newspaper months ago.

Today was productive! I dropped off about 10 rolls of film at some place in San Francisco, but I won’t name drop unless they do a good job. I am going to name drop about some new tasty fake meat products, however! Quorn products are so far the best. I’ve tried their stir fry style “chick’n” and most recently their version of chicken nuggets. They didn’t really taste like chicken, but the seasoning and breading were quite tasty. There’s also no fear of undercooking the little guys because they’re not a dead animal! Fabulous. I picked up some seitan also, apparently, in stir fry style. I cooked it up with some vegetables and noodles and here’s my conclusion: SEITAN = WEIRD.

Yesterday I made my own dumplings. My boyfriend tried too but ended up just making a burrito out of his ground beef (he completed three, though, and managed to fry them to perfection). Mine had green cabbage, cilantro, green onion, and mushrooms sauteed with garlic. I added soy sauce and ginger to the mix, too. Boasting isn’t my thing, but they were effing tasty. I steamed most of them and basically failed at frying them. I’ll do better next time and I highly recommend you make your own dumplings chez vous because it’s very rewarding.
