A trip to our favorite Asian market means delicious things this way comes.

Already whizzed up a batch of homemade coconut milk for a Thai green curry the other day, which was so simple and so good. Thinking another iteration of hiyayakko as a meal to take with me for work travel this weekend, plus sprouted mung beans, copious stir-frying, and possibly grilling the eggplant before the weather turns Arctic again. It’s been a while since we had chana dal on hand, and I’m deciding between my sunny salad or chana crispies!

There is a tiny Mexican shop in town that we also love, and there was a Russian market, but it sadly went out of business. Back home in Wisconsin it’s a treat to visit all of the many unique markets — Asian, Indian, Hmong, Middle Eastern, Latin, Italian, Greek, Polish, German! Do you have any local ethnic markets you support frequently? Maybe visiting one or a few this weekend? Might be good to have some cooking activities planned while winter sweeps back in again (hopefully for the last time)…

Have a great Saturday + Sunday, check out my favorite links from around the interwebs this past week, and don’t forget to follow along on Facebook + Twitter for the daily #NationalNutritionMonth postings!

Cheers, Heather

    I like the Rx produce; I think it would certainly help people to eat healthier. And I agree that baseball games are too slow, too long; but I find the games go much more quickly if you are actually at the stadium- there’s alot happening there to keep you occupied while commercials are playing on the TV/radio. I’d like to have a sleepless garden; I can enjoy it when I’m sleepless!

      You’re definitely more tolerant of baseball than I am — even at the stadium I’m bored after a few innings! Good point about the sleepless gardens; though, hopefully you aren’t sleepless more times than not. On that note, cherries (unsweetened dried/fresh/or juice) are one of the best food sources of the hormone melatonin that may promote better sleep and wake cycles for you. Go fill your prescription!
