Atacama

Anyone been to Trader Joe's lately?

They may have discontinued my beloved kung pao chicken, but I think they just made up for it by introducing baby spinach with dried cranberries, candied pecans, blue cheese, and dressing ready to mix yourself in a single bag for $3.99, quark for $3.99, and ready-to-cook greens [either chard or Southern style], also for $3.99.

I'm starting to get more interested in cooking partly in thanks to that, and party thanks to the gas barbecue Brian bought us as a wedding present. I finally got around to using it the first time last night, and damn, that went really well. Made some kal-bi marinated pork kebabs and served 'em up with white rice and kale. Yum!

Off to sinnabor's house to feed the cat... Digit's funny. The second he gets his tuna he forgets I exist. Makes for an easy escape, though!
