Salad Days: the attempts of an ex-chef to rekindle her love of cooking! One or two meals at a time!

Posted on

Just a brief note today! First Blog entry, exciting and I will try to write in here weekly and not abandon it like my other two discarded blogs! After ten years in the restaurant industry I was burned out physically mentally and literally! Scar mania! Being vegetarian and cooking meat wasn’t working anymore so I quit. Now, I’m not cooking professionally anymore and lo and behold I can’t tear myself away from my Gourmet and Saveur collection and am reinspired! Hopefully this blog will follow my triumphant return to the gustatory world! Woo Hoo! Today, Big Salad, a la Seinfeld:

Soy bean sprouts



red onion

chick peas


yellow pepper


broccoli (raw, julienned)

carrots (shredded)


japanese cuke

balsamic/olive oil (lame but easy)

sirracha (cock brand natch) hot sauce

Chop and toss!

Delightful! Had a veg burger with nose tingling dijon and a soft bun! My significant other/guinea pig approved. Well, this is just to get my feet wet! Pics and more excitement coming.

the annotated zoetrope

The Zoetrope, or "Wheel of Life," is an instructive Scientific Toy, illustrating in an attractive manner the persistence of an image on the retina of the eye; by revolving the cylinder by the hand, and looking through the openings, the images passing rapidly before the eye are blended, so as to give the figures the motions of life in the most natural manner.
