Curry Wor Tip

I got bored of the usual version. So I decided to add some curry. The Glico curry sauce is a quick way to add some flavor. I used my recipe below, in lieu of the regular seasonings. I dissolved two blocks of the curry in boiling water and topped it off with random dashes of … Continue reading

Shibuya Izakaya

Coming back late at night from the mountains, I was looking for something to satisfy my salt and comfort food craving. I decided on curry ramen. I was surprised how good the curry was. I think I like it better than the one at Menyatai last week. Maybe everything tastes better when you are hungry. … Continue reading

This week, we have lilies, Spanish onion, carrots, potatoes, spinach, beets, dill, and garlic scapes. Looks like more roasted potatoes, with dill and garlic for dinner. Yum!

Village Ice Cream

For some reason, this place is not easy to find. We were coming up from Bow Bottom Trail and Google maps got a little creative with the routing. The location is very easy to miss and I would not say pedestrian friendly with the sidewalk next to it blocked off for construction. But what a … Continue reading

Fig Pizza

I had some chard to use up. Also some figs that I had frozen and were saving for pizza. Perfect. I trolled the web for pizza, figs and chard. A little stinky cheese, and we are all set. Balsamic chard, fig and gorgonzola pizza Balsamic Chard: 1 large bunch chard 1 tbs     olive oil … Continue reading

I certainly found out this evening. I ordered two appetizers; the beef tongue and the ramen. The beef … Continue reading

The Locavore’s Dilemma

It’s the weekend and I find myself  sorting through grocery lists and vegetables in the fridge. My shopping is more complicated in the summer. SPUD delivery on Monday, CSA veggies on Thursday and Safeway on the weekend. Things bought on Monday must be used by the weekend and things on Thursday seem to have an … Continue reading

Olive Chicken

Mmm… Korean fried chicken. The last time I had something similar, it was from Fritou’s in Skyview Ranch. Their chicken was pretty good. On my way home from yoga, I decided to pick up a little dinner. Olive Chicken is a small place in the Korean strip mall on 10th Ave. I’m guessing they are … Continue reading

CSA Delivery #2

Today’s veggies.. red potatoes, chard, bag of greens, lettuce, cilantro, garlic scapes and radishes.

Menyatai Japanese Ramen

I love ramen. Not the stuff that comes in the packages from  the grocery store, but freshly made noodles. It’s hard to find good ramen in Calgary. I think I have finally found some. We started off with the deep fried gyoza. It was good, but I prefer the pan fried. My friend had the … Continue reading
