It feels like we're making no progress on our kitchen, but that's probably because my husband is doing all the work. He's just in the process of rewiring some electrical stuff, moving plumbing down the wall, patching rotted parts of the subfloor. These are all projects that he's doing in the hours immediately after he gets home from work, too. I can't believe how hard he's working.
We're all getting over a cold and we're all REALLY tired of takeout but cooking in our living room can be such a drag, especially if we have to bust out the camp stove on the porch. But then, a revelation! My mom reminded me that she owns a huge electric skillet!
My mom has had this thing my whole life, but I completely forgot about it. She used to bust it out on occasion when I was a kid for random dishes, and it comes in handy when you're cooking for a lot of people and your stove is all filled up.
Anyway, it feels awesome to eat home cooked food, even if it's just a simple stir fry with eggs and vegetables.
And Sambal. Oh hey, I do like soliciting the opinions of my readers. What's your favorite chili sauce? I like the Sambal Oelek but I want recommendations for other stuff, especially stuff you can get at Asian markets, I live right down the street from a huge one.
