WEEKEND POST 118
A trip to our favorite Asian market means delicious things this way comes.
Already whizzed up a batch of homemade coconut milk for a Thai green curry the other day, which was so simple and so good. Thinking another iteration of hiyayakko as a meal to take with me for work travel this weekend, plus sprouted mung beans, copious stir-frying, and possibly grilling the eggplant before the weather turns Arctic again. It’s been a while since we had chana dal on hand, and I’m deciding between my sunny salad or chana crispies!
There is a tiny Mexican shop in town that we also love, and there was a Russian market, but it sadly went out of business. Back home in Wisconsin it’s a treat to visit all of the many unique markets — Asian, Indian, Hmong, Middle Eastern, Latin, Italian, Greek, Polish, German! Do you have any local ethnic markets you support frequently? Maybe visiting one or a few this weekend? Might be good to have some cooking activities planned while winter sweeps back in again (hopefully for the last time)…
Have a great Saturday + Sunday, check out my favorite links from around the interwebs this past week, and don’t forget to follow along on Facebook + Twitter for the daily #NationalNutritionMonth postings!
