Boats and Moats

Trying something new. Here’s a round-up of things consumed this week.

Grilled Cheese Adas Small

Grilled cheese sandwich with apple compote at Ada’s Technical Books and Cafe | Seattle, WA

This place is seriously cute. It’s a bookstore for the “tech community”. I’ll be honest, I was only there for lunch. From what I’ve read on Yelp, its the perfect place to get your techie/nerdy friends gifts. Think non-fiction, science and programming. All I know is that my sandwich was very delicious!

mood enhancer

20 Dec


Salt is supposed to be a mood enhancer. Well, I’ve instinctively veered towards this feel-good drug since early childhood. OK, but I will not go into medical horrors or gastronomic travesties here. We’ll just discuss the joys of food, and the terrors of living with extreme opposites of humanity.

I cooked pork belly roast again today. And a whole bunch of kale. I needed the salty fatty pork and crunchy kale – badly. I am chuffed. The pork belly came out better than before. I marinaded it and left it overnight in a container in the fridge.
