I went to see tUnE-yArDs on Monday night with some friends, and as always we wanted to cook a meal that somehow related to the show we were heading to. Sometimes this is hard to do , but other times it seems to come naturally . Finding culinary inspiration in Merrill's lyrics seemed like it would be tough, but my sister knew what she wanted to make without hesitation. "How about something layered, because of all the vocal and instrument layering in the music?" From there we worked together to come up with this deep, colorful, and multi-flavored lasagna version of a timpano. If you are using words like deep, colorful, and multi-flavored to describe something inspired by tUnE-yArDs, you already know you got it right!
Recipe and photo updated July 8, 2011 Ever since that wonderful movie with Jessica Tandy I’ve wondered about fried green tomatoes. People really eat green tomatoes? I recall being served fried tomatoes for breakfast while visiting London, but they weren’t green. Curious as usual, we found some big green tomatoes at the farmer’s market last weekend and just had to try them. The verdict at this house?
Or, call them egg rolls or spring rolls, these beauties are my mom’s claim to fame! Egg rolls with sweet soy sauce and rice vinegar dipping sauce Egg rolls hold many treasured memories for me…. The other day I went to pick up some Chinese take out and smiled to myself because in the corner there were 3 teenagers peeling lumpia wrappers for egg rolls and chatting.
One of my favorite guilty pleasures is buffalo wings, especially dipped in blue cheese dressing. There's something about the buffalo chicken and blue cheese combo that really appeals to me and I had a craving for it lately. When I came across a recipe for ham and cheese stuffed pretzel bites, I figured I could substitute it with chicken and blue cheese. That's when I decided to make these Buffalo Chicken Bites ... yum! These are such an awesome snack, which could be a meal in itself if you have enough of them.
Well folks, not much going on this week. I’m still 800 million degrees, which I guess is normal if you’re a human incubator. I’ve become a stretchy, elastic waisted pants spokesperson, because ohmygah maternity jeans are the most incredible thing I have ever worn , excepting for the sweat pants I model almost daily.
Breakfast is my favorite meal. I like to drink iced coffee and watch the cream climb its way down the chunky ice cubes in a dazy before the caffeine hits. I like to order bacon with whatever I’m eating.
This tastes JUST like P.F. Chang’s Mongolian Beef! You can serve it how P.F.
