Strawberry season! We like ours in smoothies, in salads, and cooked down with a little sugar to top pancakes.
Being in the capital means easy access to ground beef or chicken — so I have been making more Isaan laap. There is a man who squats at the corner selling fresh mint which is necessary for good laap. My helper ground up some toasted sticky rice too. Before it used to be so hard to get all the main ingredients in my kitchen at the same time!
One weekend Jacob brought home 8 liters of fresh milk. We made paneer — so easy!! Why have we not done more of this! I made the recipe at http://www.101cookbooks.com/archives/palak-paneer-recipe.html
It was very tasty but a bit over spiced when one is looking for a more creamy palak paneer. The next time around (as 8 liters of milk made a lot of paneer) I tried another recipe that had blended nuts, no mustard, and less chilis. Very tasty.
Cute Sabbath tarts, made with Maia’s play pans.
