Veal Shoulder and Bok Choy Stir Fry

East and South Asian cuisine seem to be an obsession with me lately.  I’m craving color, flavor and vegetables.  Maybe to balance the dreary weather or maybe because I like East and South Asian food, not to the exclusion of other cuisines but available ingredients also dictate what I’m willing to make :(   Isn’t that a pretty plate?   251 more words

I'm Still Here

I remembered one of my favorite films, Papillon with Dustin Hoffman and Steve McQueen.  Continually surviving the inhumane conditions of the French prison system in French Guiana, he famously declares “Hey you b*st*rds, I’m still here.”  Me too.   471 more words
