Leftovers is a collection of things I made from other cookbooks/sources, notable things I ate out, and items didn’t think warranted their own post. Maybe you’ll get ideas of things to make from something listed here. If you do, let me know in the comments!
Food I made this week:
- 2 lb sous vide NY strip at 125F and zucchini noodles with olive oil, garlic, and pine nuts
- Apricot ice cream with apricots from the CSA and David Lebovitz’s Perfect Scoop
- Caprese salad with basil from the CSA, fresh mozzarella from the store, and fresh tomatoes from the plant we are growing on the roof of our apartment.
- Corned beef hash
- Griddle-style hot dogs with various condiments: hot pepper relish, homemade sauerkraut, kosher dill pickles, French fried onions, cheese sauce, and Hormel chili
- Cucumber kimchi from the Momofuku book, which I ate on hot dogs and by itself. The rest is slowly fermenting in the fridge.
- Homemade Chicken Kitchen/Pollo Tropical-style Chop-Chop with Mustard Curry sauce (recipe forthcoming)
- Iced coffee with an Aeropress using Marco Arment’s method
- 100% green tea kombucha – This turned out pretty well. It is light and refreshing.
Drinks I made this week:
Notable things I ate out this week:
- Sawmill River Bar – A delicious dessert made with layers of crackers, caramel, peanut butter chips, chocolate, and sea salt. Weird sounding combination, but so good.
- Iced coffee from a Yama Kyoto tower at Coffee Labs
- Mango sorbet from a street cart that I’m going to have to figure out how to make soon. So good on a hot summer evening.
- I went down to Fuku, Momofuku’s new spicy fried chicken sandwich place with my friend Adam to give it a try. Even though the place was packed, we were served within 5 minutes after ordering. It was a delicious sandwich with a spicy coating over a huge piece of juicy dark thigh meat chicken and some pickle chips on a bun. I added ssam sauce to the one pictured below. I ordered two because I knew I’d want more than one. I devoured both and was extremely satisfied. I’d definitely go again, but only if I’m in the neighborhood.
