This cooler weather also brings the dreaded early season colds and allergies. It is important to build up your immune system this time of year. I have also had horrible allergies this year, which I have never had before. When you can’t stop sniffling, sometimes all you need is some chicken noodle soup.
Another exciting update on my job at Morimoto. Last night I worked grill for the first time, it was awesome! I am so excited to be moving up in the kitchen. Things went really smoothly luckily, but I do think that it wouldn’t have been as smooth if I didn’t have another grill cook, Kalani, there to help out. But, you got to start somewhere and I think that I will catch on quick. I didn’t even have anybody send back a steak for being cooked to the wrong temp, score! On the home cooking front, I am happy to announce that I am guest blogging today over at my own mom’s blog, Cooking With Michele. The menu? A flavorful, healthy Chicken Miso Soup. I know you are probably saying, “Miso soup doesn’t have chicken!” but you have to try it, it goes so well with it!
I have finally transfered almost all of my old recipes to my new blog, only one or two more Throwback Thursdays after this one. I am going to start a new weekly theme idea once Throwback Thursdays are over. I would love to hear your input about what you would like to see. I was considering a few things. First, I was thinking about focusing on a different country each week and discussion the traditions, flavors and any other interesting things behind the culture. The other idea I had was to really focus on the senses, since that is what my blog is really about. I was considering zoning in on a different sense description each week and showing how it is represented in certain recipes. For example, I would use the word “tangy” one week and discuss what that really means and give you a recipe that really represents what the word “tangy” means. Please let me know what you think of these ideas and let me know if you have any others that you would like to see!
