Cravings of the week:

blanched asparagus, plain
chocolate pudding, wtf
english muffins

A few weeks ago at Bloomingfoods, they had a sale on the Thai Express rice noodle ramen stuff, so I got a ton of it for when I didn't have anything to bring to work. I picked up some extra-firm tofu at Kroger last night and stir-fried it with some sauce made of chili-garlic paste, tamari, and orange juice. Today I made the chili-lemongrass version of the ramen and added the tofu, to yummy effect. I think I might try to figure out a less salty, more homemade version of this, maybe with soba noodles and a miso base? I am totally new to and suck at non-western cooking, but I should definitely learn to make a few basics.

My food-related activities have been very limited lately; I'm in kind of a rut and all of my experiments have been going wrong-- for instance, artichoke hearts are really gross when pureed, even with olive oil and garlic and pine nuts and romano cheese. Did you know that? Me neither.

I want to learn to grow sprouts. I'm willing to buy one of those sprouting jars or whatever else, but does anyone know how to do this?

I don't know how to grow sprouts, but I'm pretty sure my mother does. I'll ask her.
