Now there‘s a catchy title. Last week my daughter had a beauty salon appointment in the city, which provided a great opportunity for me to take my grandsons to the Museum of Science. We could spend three productive hours there, give her some time off, and I could play grandpa for awhile. That all worked well, as you can see below.
Here’s the Yu Choi part. Having completed my grandfatherly duties successfully, I decided to make myself dinner featuring a beautiful bunch of Yu Choi from the Asian gardeners in nearby Lancaster, MA. I had purchased it on Sunday at the West Acton Farmer’s Market.
The dish was my own invention, a stir fry with King Trumpet mushrooms (very meaty in texture and flavor), onions, garlic, soy sauce and sesame oil, and of course, the greens, which were quickly blanched first. My wok did its thing as designed, and I served it with brown basmati rice and a sour Belgian beer. Life is good.
