kids December 2006

(no subject)

It's a gorgeous day! Sunny, with a light breeze - perfect spring day.

Yes. Then why was it soooo hard to leave the apt and head out to the Farmer's Market this morning?

It's been a busy week.
  • Kev was here until Thursday.
  • Kyle had a sleepover on Friday. Dinner at Applebee's. Keoki-chan must be in a growth spurt. He ate a 7oz sirloin steak and chicken fingers plus steamed broccoli, french fries and some buffalo wings. Then he had a scoop of ice cream. Oh and some hot cheetos while watching Eragon. I woke to the sound of machine guns. Uh oh. He'd been watching the Xenosaga dvd... He had 4-5 pancakes and hash browns for breakfast
  • Took the kidlets to the movies (Monsters vs Aliens in 2D) Movie was cute. There were many places I was giggling, but the kids weren't because they didn't have the history. Oh, and the kidlets killed a large popcorn - I may have gotten a handful or two, but that's it.
  • Dinner with herefox followed by a quick zip through Wednesday's American Idol. Why didn't Megan go home on Thursday??????
  • kanef's house filk - much fun! There was filking by flashlight between 8:30-9:30pm. We stayed until 1am, but there was still about a dozen people left

But I eventually did make it to the Farmer's Market. Fresh spinach linguine and black pepper fettucine! Daikon, sourdough bread, mushrooms - white and brown, green onion, and asparagus.

Daikon Leaves?

Most of my life, I've been chopping off the tops of daikons and tossing the leaves. Today's batch of daikon had some beautiful green leaves, so I decided to do something with them.

Figured I'd make a stir fry of leaves, mushrooms, a little bacon, pepper, some dashi and shoyu.

Notes to self - perhaps cook it a bit longer. Add ginger? Add garlic?
