July 15th, 2009

Damn, summer is half over already. Where does the time go? Seems that time speeds up every year.
Freddy wakes me up at 7:00 AM which would have been great except I went to bed at 4:00 A.M.. I let him outside and then couldn't go back to sleep, so I took my bike to the "Crumb Brothers" bakery and had a croissant and a cup of good coffee.

I last wrote about the wonders of Ramen soup. I have made this soup 4 times since I last wrote you. Last night I made a version using onions, sliced red bell pepper, schredded cabbage and one chopped up hotdog! It was great. I like cuisines where the emphasis isn't a giant slab of meat. These soups use very little if any meat, last nights meal used one hotdog for 4 servings of soup. Seems that meat is used more of a condiment in the orient. I like lighter meals, because I like having the energy to do things. I also made a new dessert!

Fried Peanut Butter and honey Oriental:

Make a Peanut butter and honey sandwich, fry up some butter in a hot skillet, fry the sandwich like your making a grilled cheese, remember to flatten the sandwich with a spatula.

cut into 16 squares, drizzle a little honey on the tops of the squares, sprinkle some sesame seeds on the honey. Serve with chopsticks. The chopsticks are important since they are the cleanest way to eat this, plus it's the only thing "Oriental" about this dessert. Enjoy! (using a sliced banana in the sandwich would be a nice addition).

Got to get packing for my trip to Hawaii tomorrow.
