made a huge amount of soba salad tonight with csa veggies.
sesame salad dressing using tahini, soy sauce, lemon, ginger & honey,
with a little sriracha for spiciness - it was better than store bought,
if i may say so myself!

another good meal at boneshakers.
rebel cruiser (bbq seitan sandwich) & hill bomber (veggie burger).

potluck dinner party with friends.
can't think of a better usage of CSA veggies & eating yummy food with friends
on the cheap.

the night ended with a glass of wine or a can of beer in everyone's hands,
including kitty ethan's!

late night bike ride to east village.
browsing and random run-ins at the bookstore,
then for midnight meal at yokocho.
yakitori skewers, fresh salmon & uni over rice, cold ramen,
with kirin draft on the side - just like back in japan. :)

when it's so hot like it was today, i don't feel like meat or heavy foods...
so it was veggie sandwiches day at boneshakers.
great merckx werckx (top) - a bike nerd's dream cafe, it was!

having missed out on a great potluck with friends because of our late viewing of francis bacon retrospective at the met,
we went to a korean pub (pocha 32) on 32nd to make up for it...
but the food was very mediocre - we must have ordered the wrong things!
however, the ambiance alone was interesting - like some food tent near an army camp in korea.

patbingsoo (shaved ice with red bean, fruit, mochi & ice cream) was good though.

corn salsa salad made with csa veggies.
i ate it with toasted bread, kind of like bruschetta - it was so good.

* always good to reaffirm eating local! and a little less meat too...
* inspiration - i always wish that i have a tiny patio space or a garden to grow food!

went bike riding with friends around staten island (got there by the ferry of course)
over the weekend - it was a lot of fun times!
even the downtown felt like i was somewhere upstate in a small town.
simple but yummy bagels for lunch (peanut butter/banana/honey and tomato/cuke/cream cheese),
and we hit the (very littered) beach with the view of the verrazano.
