Sorry I haven't posted anything in a while. It's been a heck of a week or so, and I've been pretty much treading water. Not much time for exciting contributions to world cuisine
This has been a week of sausages and from the can minestrone (although I threw in some farro I had lying around which made a great textural addition).
I'm hoping to break loose long enough to do some cooking this weekend. I've been craving a nice pork roast in chile sauce, or some such. Made chile verde? Only time will tell. At the same time, I'm desparately craving Korean food, but I may cop out and just go out for some. Portland has some pretty decent Korean restaraunts.
I just re-picked up Mark Kurlansky's Choice Cuts which is a collection of essays and excerpts from various culinary writers. Mr. Kurlansky's books are pretty much universally great, so I'm expecting to be entranced. Cod is pretty much one of the best food books I've ever read (if you haven't, you should).
