Peanut Milk

Peanut Milk

In case you didn’t think I was a hippie.

1 cup of nuts to 2 cups of boiling liquid. And a teaspoon of brown sugar.

Still doing some experiments with the liquid — but the picture above is water and half and half. The half and half is richer, and almost a dessert.

Curbside Creamery!


I have the awesomest friends. Friends with ice cream!

Jen bought four ice cream sandwiches from Curbside and (post Korean BBQ ayce) we tried all four. Cinnamon was my least favorite and the (vegan) strawberry was my favorite – which was surprising. I suppose cashew milk is good at adding richness?

Corn Pancakes!

Corn Pancakes

Followed this recipe. Made a couple of modifications:

3 large ears of corn, boiled for 3-5 minutes, then cut off the cob
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 1/4 cups water
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup finely chopped scallions, didn’t taste these at all — can probably be skipped
1/4 cup canola oil, for frying
2 ounces triple-cream cheese, such as Cowgirl Creamery’s Mt. Tamor St. André, cut into 1/2-inch pieces — I used brie
chopped chives for sprinkling over the top

I cooked up the entire batch, which was very filling for two. The leftovers kept surprisingly well in the fridge.

Bar Zeruko

Cod bbq

Raw cod, as it smokes over coals. Eaten with the green shooter. Apparently Bar Zeruko’s specialty pinxto.

Creamy uni

They had two uni pinxtos, the one served cold was far better (uni flavored) than the one on the right (cheese and potato flavored).

octopus and potato

I had to try this one just because it looked weird… But it wasn’t bad. (Surprise!) Deep fried octopus, with a potato cream for dipping. Strange, but interesting complimentary.

One of the best tapa/pinxto places I visited between the two trips to Spain. Food was both varied and tasty! (I don’t really appreciate the tapas of stuff on bread…)
