I wasn’t feeling well the whole day, so I quickly threw together some vegetables in pho sauce (gotta love the pre-made stuff in jars), reheated some rice and threw on some kimchi.
I love mushrooms of every kind, but Ben does not. So when he asked me about the enoki, I said “it’s a Japanese vegetable.” To his credit, he tried it, but alas it would have to be disguised or else I’ll eat them.
Whilst we are (or can be) adventurous in our tastes, there are days when the want for different comfort foods hit.
Before his semester started, we cooked up a few amazing meals together. Check out these delicious burgers. Actually, he did most of the cooking, and prepped the corn too. We were so stuffed…
Here’s another one we did together – actually, he took care of the corn, and I did the majority of the stir fry. I used olive oil to fry up the beef since it was what I had on hand, but I think it would have been better with canola or sesame, considering that I added soy sauce to it.
One day last (last last?) week Ben suggested that he cook dinner, since I wanted to make up a meal in advance for his upcoming evening class and my evening shift. He does eggs well! Eggs, cheese, one pepperette. We agreed that next time there was no need for so many eggs (6 eggs and we were bloated). But it was an experiment, and experiments are great for tweaking and learning. And as a tasty experiment, I couldn’t complain. Besides, I love having meals prepared for me. It’s a real treat.
More recently, I missed a text from him on my way home as I lost reception on the subway. He and a buddy were cooking and he wanted to know if I wanted any, and if he should throw in extra. Too bad I got the text after I got home. Their meal looked good.
