What I'm Eating

What's the deal with this blog lately? I'm not as busy with teaching, and the weather's been kind of cold and rainy, so I should be posting more, right? Weird.

Maybe it's got something to do with my back? Well, I'm trying acupuncture this morning, so hopefully that will soon resolve itself...

In the meantime, how about a round-up of some recent Twitter posts about food?

Recently I had my first banh mi sandwich. Honestly, I have no idea why I haven't been eating these for years! Crispy baguette, chilies, cucumbers, carrots, cilantro: oh wonderful mix of France and southeast Asia!

Got ours from Phở Cyclo, conveniently located around the corner from our apartment building. Got it because of that recent New York Times story. Huzzah!

Also from the Times (yes, I know...):
citrus salsa
Citrus salsa (or "xec"), by Mark Bittman

And zucchini pancakes:

Recipe from the Temporary Vegetarian column.

They were great, and the garlic and yogurt sauce was also delicious!

All right, better grab some breakfast. Cheers, reader.


  1. I've been temporarily vegetarian...maybe I ought to check out the recipes! I have a Hawaiian cookbook - I should send you some recipes from it. I think you'd like.

  2. I'm not sure that this is the best way to do it (Times website: good, but definitely not great), but you should be able to find all the Temporary Vegetarian columns by looking at author Elaine Louie's page.

    And definitely send some recipes, if you have a chance. Always looking for more fun in the kitchen!
