Archive for August, 2013

Since I took such a long hiatus from posting pictures of my food, which I know is what you all are really here for, I’ve decided to add a few from my backlog. When I stopped taking frequent pictures, I started taking better pictures of better food, so don’t think that this sample is (necessarily) representative of either my eating habits or my photography skills.

Now, look at food!

The first meal of August: I moved away from the poblanos briefly, although I suspect I'll go back one day. Also, slicing these in half looks nice but was really just a ploy to get them all to fit into the pan.

Alright, so it turns out that once you fall off the wagon, it’s hard to get back on. My picture-of-dinner-every-night experiment was really fun for me, maybe not that exciting for you guys, but life got in the way. I will say I have been both cooking more and eating out more than I did in the past (leftovers tend to go for lunch these days), so sometime soon I’ll post a recap of pictures I took in the interim.

But that’s not what today is about. Today is about celebrating a delicious, beautiful, tender leafy green: baby bok choy. Because I don’t grow my own bok choy, I have no idea if Baby Bok Choy is actually the younger version of the grown-up thing, or if it’s a different plant species, but it tastes lemony and wonderful and can be eaten all by itself. Also performs nicely in a quesadilla, if you’re into that. And yesterday I decided to make a soup out of it. Yayyyyyy soup!

I didn't have the presence of mind to take a picture while the chicken stock was still IN the jar, but this is what I put into the soup, minus light seasonings.
