I took one whole week off of blog/facebook/twitter etc. No special reason–just a little vacation from the techno-frontlines because I want these activities to stay fun–not burdensome. And, this is the first time all year that–with sons all out of town, hubs and I ate out four whole nights which is very unusual for us. It was fun–kind of like being on vacation or a honeymoon. I wouldn’t want to make a steady diet of it but–with NYC 97 degree heat–it was worth the expense. We ate our favorite NYC resto’s: Marea, Porterhouse, Locanda Verde and Yakitori Toto.
But, I cooked all weekend up at my moms–here is a little steak dinner, Asian style: porterhouse and portobellas marinated in teriyaki sauce and grilled, plain steamed bok choy, ditto the fresh corn and cilantro rice. I’ve been on a kick of stirring fresh cilantro into things: butter for corn, tossed into rice, scattered over steamed greens. Most of the fish, meat and veg I’ve been cooking has been such pure natural product that just a little hint of spice or herbs is all that’s needed to enhance.
Sometimes you just have to unplug.. Not only from technology, but also your stove,mixer,and oven! Sounds like you enjoyed your unplugged time!@GardenGuyKenn
