Last night, Ryan made this delicious soup we used to make a lot--a "rustic" French soup where you soak some day old baguette in milk and then slice up some shallots or leeks and cook in veal stock and then blender it all up and add a lil heavy cream---so good!

I am sick and all I wanted was Tom Kha. I had forgotten where I had gotten some decent Tom Kha (other than Chaba) and we thought it was at that Monsoon place. Well, that place SUCKS. Watered down "coconut milk" and some random crap thrown in. No galanga, no spice.

Thai Thai was the the place (the one on Stark) that has the Tom Kha that is almost as good as Chaba.

That the place on Mississippi? Right around the corner from my house! Yeah- it's not the greatest... but I kinda like the Tom Kha when I'm sick, specifically 'cause it's so mild and boring.

i made a tasty chicaken curry last night with good curry, not the regular store bought kind. it was pretty awesome. fuck a damn indian resturant.

It was the Monsoon on Alberta--there was no way this was good for anything. It was embarrassingly bad. No excuse when there are like at least 6 thai places on that street alone.

You should check out the place on Mississippi... it's connected to a laudromat, and used to be a soul food place called Soup + Soap.

Well, now it's a Thai place, and it's pretty cheap, and it's not bad. I've only ever had the green curry, which I really liked, and the Tom Kha, which is ok-to-pretty good. I usually only eat it when I'm sick, and so get it spicier than I usually would, so I can taste it.

i've been eating out for a week because i've been traveling

yesterday was paczski day (polish mardi gras for people who don't know), and i was staying in hamtramck, so my day was filled w/ polish pastries. breakfast, lunch and dessert

for dinner, i had BBQ in detroit at a new joint called slows (timmy vulgar works there; keep him employed! eat there) which was excellent. pulled pork...mmm very rich
they had a lot of different sauces to try out. my verdict:
North Carolina sauce - good, very good even, but not yet all the way there (as in it didn't quite cut the richness of the pork w/ a counterpoint that i was looking for)
their new smoked tomatillo sauce, however, was awesome

a week ago, i was treated to a nice dinner in muskegon by a couple friends and had this bowl of "magical cheese soup" which indeed was. we also had some authentic and awesome brisket tacos the next day before the michigan joy ride continued. and of course, in detroit, it was much more drinking than dining

Damn, Theresa. Traveling really is fun, isn't it?

Tonight I'm making wangs (w/Crystal's), sweet potatoes, and green bean casserole. Southern or what??

Tuesday night I boiled 6lbs of shrimp with potatoes, onions, and garlic (my secret ingredient is a can of cheap beer, stirred in with water, the Old Bay spice bag, and some secret liquid boil my dad concocted), and made a pot of red beans and rice, straight from the Zatarain's box. toasted a baguette and drank about 100 beers. it was the perfect goodbye to Mardi Gras 2006!
Posted: Mar 2, 2006 9:48 pm
Great googly moogly! Andria!!
Posted: Mar 2, 2006 10:09 pm
that Zatarain's sure is convenient, isn't it? i love it! sounds like a great send off to mardi gras, andria
Posted: Mar 2, 2006 10:20 pm
well, other people ate it, Alisa! I can't do that much shrimp alone!

and yep, TK, Zatarain's rules. it's funny though bc non-Louisianans think it's a tourista product, but natives know it's really good!
Posted: Mar 2, 2006 10:27 pm
Sorry I missed it. I gotta quit my job.
Posted: Mar 2, 2006 10:28 pm
I heart skrimp.
Posted: Mar 2, 2006 10:34 pm
well, other people ate it, Alisa! I can't do that much shrimp alone!

call me up next time! that sounds divine...
(I used to keep Zatarain's remoulade in my fridge all the time. I don't think they make it anymore?)

sorry, will do -- it was a real spur of the moment kinda thing --

and hey -- I just got a buncha cookbooks in the mail:
a farmer's market cookbook with intro by Alice Waters
Cookout USA
an ice cream cookbook

I am so hungry for spring that I am making potato salad tonight!

so hungry for spring

have you seen the commercials for fruit from chile? they talk about it being winter in the US and summer down there... its kind of long and they hammer the point... esp. since i'm sitting in 27 degree temps...
Posted: Mar 3, 2006 12:13 am
