Cooking For One - Shrimp and Rice

Even when I’m just cooking for myself (Francesca’s out of town), I can’t seem to do simple or boring or fast food (“take-away” as our Brit friends say).

Sweet-and-sour shrimp, bananas, edamame, and guava paste chunks (added at the last minute so it didn’t dissolve) over cilantro rice. Paired with a Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc (New Zealand).

Dishes, pots, utensils for one person. One.

Way Too Long

We've been.... busy. Actually, started a real J-O-B for the first time in several years, and been, well, busy with WORK. That damn four-letter word. Nonetheless, we'll try to say something occasionally. Despite our new time commitments, we're still eating and drinking good wine with our regular abandon.

So tonight we present Vietnamese Banh Xeo via the "Plenty" cookbook. Bonus points if you can identify all the ingredients in the first photo. Paired with Pearl Sake (served cold).
