Last month was another not so great on the recipe completion month. I only cooked 5 recipes! Wow, I need to get cracking.
I did buy something new....but it was handmade on etsy and I do believe that falls in the "approved purchase" category so I think I'm still doing okay. I did buy someone a present and it's sitting in my living room calling my name... I am having such severe "zojirushi" envy. I need to hurry up and wrap it before it migrates on to my own kitchen counter. >>Sigh<<
I guess I will just have to keep making new food discoveries to satisfy my buying new desire. Today I made an exciting discovery. Whenever I have eaten at a dim sum restaurant there is a little tub of savory deliciousness that I have not been able to locate...until today! I saw it, and I wasn't sure because it was a product from Thailand...I always was searching in the Chinese area. Anyhow it's a chili paste with soya bean oil and it is quite tasty. The ingredients are: Shrimp, Fish, Soya bean, Coriander & Cumin. Sounds pretty potent, doesn't it? Let me tell you...it is. I got some on my fingers a second ago when I ran downstairs to pull the ingredient list and I just had to go scrub my fingers. And they still sort of smell like fish. But it tastes AWESOME! Go get some for yourself...you won't be disappointed, I promise!
