Spring rolls and miso soup

December 17, 2010

Justin really does go all out on our dinners at home. Twice so far he’s made spring rolls, which is kind of a tedious thing to make. He fills them with rice noodles, lettuce, cilantro, fried tofu, blanched carrots, and avocado. And then he makes homemade peanut sauce.

I contribute to these meals by making miso soup. We found this recipe and it’s TOTALLY the best miso soup ever.

I’ve also been making lots of vintage cocktails from Ted Haigh’s Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails – last night we had Algonquin Cocktails (1 1/2 ounces rye whiskey, 3/4 ounce dry vermouth, 3/4 ounce pineapple juice – shake with ice, then strain into a chilled glass), which were surprisingly good. Then I made Justin a Scofflaw (1 1/2 ounces rye whiskey, 1 ounce dry vermouth, 3/4 ounce lemon juice, 3/4 ounce grenadine – shake with ice, then strain into a chilled glass), which he LOVED. I used homemade grenadine (just boil 2 parts pomegranate juice and 1 part sugar until dissolved, then cool), and it pretty much rocked. Wow, that was a lot of parentheses-recipes. 🙂

Anyway, dinner at home has been wonderful with Justin in the kitchen. It’s lovely being spoiled.

    I made miso soup today, too – basically just boiled water, threw in LOTS of leftover seaweed (fresh, really big pieces of seaweed, precooked and soaked in a miso paste-y watery bath with spring onions, precooked by my mother) and some miso paste to taste.

    Done. Now I don’t know what to do with the rest of the pot of miso soup. 🙁

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout
    of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve
    got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
