On The Menu


No cooking for me tonight. We are going with friends to check out a restaurant my husband has been clamoring to try. Definitely more to come …




    • Asian inspired “rice” bowls with freekeh:  apparently freekeh is the new super grain with more protein than quinoa. I plan to serve bowls of hot freekeh with a buffet of sides and Asian sauces so we can spice up our individual bowls to our liking. Fun fixings as follows:
    • Stir-fried baby bok choy with soy sauce and garlic
    • Soft boiled eggs — I love it when these are soft and gooey in the middle and barely cooked. YUM!
    • Stir-fried tofu and mushrooms with some sort of sauce and heat factor — will figure that out in the kitchen
    • Chopped peanuts, fresh herbs and kimchee
    • My own special hot sauce I like to call Jo Ssam … more to come on that.



  • Stuffed peppers with tomato sauce:  season ground beef or turkey with your favorite spices, add in a bit of rice (or in my case, leftover freekeh) and mix together. Stuff into bell peppers, top with your favorite tomato sauce and bake. I might even sprinkle on a bit of cheese.
  • Roasted cauliflower:  cauliflower florets. Olive oil. Salt and pepper. Blast in a 450 degree oven for about 20 minutes and you get vegetable candy. Delicious.


  • Leftovers: freekeh bowls or stuffed peppers, whichever has yet to be transformed into work lunches.





Date night! Wheeeee!
