In a state of hibernation. My backlog has long become unsustainable. Will probably tweet more and write less full-length stuff.


Mike's cooking

Long weekend! Had lox and bagels for our Sunday brunch today.

Mike's Chow Mein

We went to Shaw's today and stocked up on some random food. Mike made some chow mein.

Figured it was pretty good and simple enough... it actually went really well. Noodles were a lot better than takeout stuff. Mike bought better noodles from Super 88, and also made it spicy, so it was pretty tasty.


Had Japanese tonight for dinner at Maluken, the place right off of Kenmore Square. I went there a couple of times last year and it was pretty good. This time we had some sashimi, maki, and a torikatsu (tonkatsu but chicken). Apologize for the dark pictures - it wasn't very bright where we sat.

I think they do the fried items pretty well... the katsu isn't too greasy, and I've had tempura that was pretty good in the past. It's also strangely been almost empty each time I've gone, so it's really quiet. It hasn't closed yet so maybe I'm just not there when it's busy. They had the Red Sox game on while we ate... speaking of which, I have to go watch that now.

Super 88 Kantin

Had a quick lunch at Super 88 today. I had a weird craving for congee.

Mike Cooks Chinese

Mike made Chinese food for dinner (sort of). He made some stir-fried beef with onions, and a soup using some beef, kim chee, and some other crap. So it's sorta Korean-ish too.
