Day 163

Crunchy Pork Kimchi Burgers

(It’s sitting on a bed of baby spinach, if you’re wondering what those booger-colored things are underneath.) I found this recipe in Food & Wine, the magazine I accidently renewed for the next seven years. (Don’t ask. Wine drinkers don’t have the best memories.) It’s a genius idea: stuff ground meat with kimchi and scallions and other good things, then bread and fry up the patties. I even kind of liked the sesame/ginger mayo I whipped up with it — and I don’t do mayo.

Day 49

Kimchi

This stuff is great. I don’t think I can go wrong with any interpretation of cabbage. I’ll have to experiment with some of this in my soups. But it seems like I’m doomed to stumble a bit as I grope through the dimly lit aisles of culinary knowledge. With Kimchi, I accidentally picked up an extra-spicy version. And, wow, they’re not kidding. So next time I’m going to tone that down a bit. (Although, when I opened the jar, I think my husband found the second love of his life. He’s been hitting it pretty hard.)
