It's a gloomy FALL day in Los Angeles...
... But that's fine by me. Being from the east coast, I tend to welcome a short change in the seemingly never ending 75 and sunny LALA weather.
So last night: I prepared the first dinner of my life that I actually enjoyed. I know that sounds like a stretch but honestly, I've made delicious snacks, breakfasts, salads and the occassional yummy baked good but dinner has always been a struggle for me (unless it involves pasta, cheese and butter- which is pretty hard to screw up). Last night, though, was amaze balls.
It started with this:
While that was marinating in the fridge with some fresh grated ginger and sesame oil, I got to workin' on this:
(A wasabi and sesame oil mayo for dipping- it was killer)
Added some veggies (broccoli, bok choy, edamame, carrots, corn) and Nama Shoyu to a pan...
Seared the ahi steaks for a minute on each side, added some steamed brown rice et voila:
The best dinner I've ever made!
Here's hoping it's the first of many :)
Woke up earrrly this morning after a late night at work to babysit one of the cutest kids on the planet. Munched on some fruit and a larabar, washed it down with my favorite homemade iced coffee.
I just finished this mid-morning snack:
(one egg, one egg white, a whole wheat bagel thin + goat cheese spread- delicious!!)
Now I'm headed off to my acting class, where I will no doubt interrupt every scene with my incessant carrot and salad crunching.
Check back tonight for the completed DAILY STAPLES page, as well as a recap of today's class and a loftier description of: my night job. Don't worry, it's G-rated ;)
