risty's cafe and sushi whaaa?

another weird south vancouver place to eat.  woo-hoo.
breakfast? sushi? risty!  the guy i work for took me to this omelette/sushi cafe by granville and 70th when i told him i was starved.  we did the take out thing.  um.  i ordered gyoza.

some days we eat like this.

had a nice day yesterday and didn't cook much.  i still ate some yummy stuff, and took a few pictures i liked of the market.  we rented a yamaha bw, cruised around and picnicked.  it was real good. walnut bread is one nutty, soft, addictive miracle.

walnut bread, humus, water crackers and jalepeno havarti.  yep, yum.

dhal dinner. for jimmy.

yeeeas! made a dhal tonight and it turned out really nice.  quite yummy.  garam masala is some sweet stuff.
roti has got to be the most delicious,  affordable treat ever.

gluten free basmati rice
curry potatoes
green lentil dhal

i think this is the best meal i've made thus far.  woo-woo!

midnight snack

i made a cauliflower curry last night at around midnight.  it was.. really good.  gave me a lot more confidence using tumeric, curry powder, mustard seeds and garam masala.  yee-ow!

on a much less joyful note.  i am sick and will not be cooking today.  homemade pepto?

"we eat way too late."

this meal was horribly mismatched.  i'm kind of embarassed.

stuffed peppers (corn, hot red peppers, yellow pepper, brown rice, red onions) - i kept the tops so we could wear then as hats!
broccoli cheese smashed potatoes
honey mustard battered french fries
blue tortilla chips w homemade guac (pretty limey- wish i hadn't made it so thin)
granola brownies w white chocolate strawberries.

heh. i need some meal planning tips.

the modest garden

while visiting my folks this weekend, i was able to explore through my fathers modest garden.  it was beautiful, and inspired me to really make efforts to grow my own food in the future.  Was able to sample some peas and potatoes, and was blown away by how incredible they were.  blueberries, carrots, peas, parsley, onions, spinach, beets, coming soon!  so special.


i've come home for the weekend, which means a perfect bed and good food.  i cooked for my family for the first time, and i finally understood what people meant when they said food can bring people together.  it felt really nice.  cooking for people is simply the best. sadly most of the photos turned out sour.. and i didn't have the heart to keep my family from eating any longer!! (i cook kind of slow...)

stuffed chicken w mushroom and green onion
spinach salad w. feta, cranberries and candied pecans
homemade fettuccine (yikes) with parsley butter sauce
roasted parmesan potatoes
strawberry chocolate mousse (didn't set enough!) (mmm chocolate soup!)
mango crumble
