14th-Nov-2008 11:22 am - Salsa Shark.
Man, salsa can be a really healthy snack, and I had no idea how easy it was to make. I mixed and matched a couple of recipes from online, got supplies at the store, and went at it. Here's what I came up with.

- 2 Medium/Large Tomatoes, Diced
- 1/2 Vidalia Onion, Diced
- Fresh Cilantro, Minced [I used about a handful and a half, but this a "to taste" kind of thing]
- 2 Cloves Garlic, Minced
- Chipotle Chilis*, Diced [Recipes all said 2, I probably used 6 or 7 - this is also a personal preference thing]
- Salt, pepper, red pepper flakes to taste

*The store I went to did not have fresh chipotles, so I had to settle for a little can of La Costeña chipotles in adobo sauce. Yes, I had to cheat, but using the sauce with the chipotles added a lot of kick and dark coloration that made the dish really pop.

If you can mix and blend all these ingredients by hand, you get all my respect. I am lazy, and threw all of this into a blender. Be careful with the speeds you use - the salsa can go from "chunky" to "soupy" really quickly. I am blender-ignorant and did not know this and ended up with a finely pureéd salsa. Not a bad thing, but a little texture is a good thing. Once you get the consistency you're looking for, taste test, and modify ingredients accordingly until you're happy with the flavor - making salsa is not a precise art! I recommend fresh lime juice as well, but I was dumb and forgot to grab one for this particular concoction.

So I'm low on cash, but even lower on food.

I want food that is good for me, not junk food.
I want food that is enough to last me for a while.
I want food that is versitile, but not extremely difficult to make.

any suggestions?
2nd-Apr-2008 07:37 pm - Veggie Omelet.
Sailor Jerry
Single dudes can't live off of Galaxy burgers and Mojo's cheesesteaks alone, but we still deserve to eat well.

I had some eggs [Egg-Land's Best Cage Free] I needed to get rid of, so I pulled some random stuff out of my fridge to make an omelet for myself.

First I prepped my veggies.

- 2 cross sections of red bell pepper and 1 healthy slice of red onion, diced
- 2 generous handfuls of arugula, minced [this wilts when cooked, so it'll look like too much at first]

Cracked 3 eggs into bowl, mixed, added about 1.5 cups of skim milk, ground black pepper, and the bell pepper and onion. Poured into a skillet on med-high, flipped, browned, added arugula and grated pecorino on top, and folded.

Unfortunately, I'm technologically backwards, so I couldn't snap a picture, but it was very colorful.

Next time, I need to use oil in the pan, 'cause the sucker really broke up towards the end, but it was still really good.

H/W tomato!
Well, today I went on just a bit of a bento rampage! I checked out the Korean department store a block from us and then headed over to H Mart and Great Wall groceries. I ended up buying several bento boxes for rather cheap. I made a bento dinner (pretty much just to show off the box...) in one of my new pretty bentos!

Tastiness in here...Collapse )
