In some sort of weird blogging convergence, everyone’s reporting their weekend adventures. Heidi went to a picnic on Saturday and was rewarded with allergies and chigger bites. Jason saw a bear (for only the second time in 20 years, he says) on a camping trip with his dad in Virginia. After a trip to Annapolis with Matt, Kari made meatloaf. Randy’s weekend featured photography, slugs (no, that’s probably not right), and barbecue. Deb — who, alas, does not have permanent links to her individual entries — went to DC without knowing exactly where she would be staying. Liz took a jaunt to Niagara Falls. Chuck — also without permanent links to individual entries: curse you Blogspot! — had yummy Lebanese food and took in a movie.
Meanwhile, on Saturday, we walked down to the River Market farmer’s market — which is one of the best things about Kansas City — had a cup of coffee while people watching, bought enough fresh produce to fill our backpack, then perused the Asian Supermarket for some wasabi, dried seaweed sheets, and a bamboo rolling mat. Later that evening, The Matrix: Reloaded — more on this later, perhaps — followed by a post-movie snack at Fedora’s.
Then on Sunday, following this guy’s instructions, I tried my hand at making sushi (not sashimi, mind you: nothing raw). It wasn’t perfect, but given that this was my first attempt ever, it was surprisingly good.
So…what did you do?
Well, on Friday my husband taught himself how to make chicken makhni, our favorite Indian dish. Now we can eat it for a fraction of the cost on a regular basis. Even better, it’s low-carb-diet-friendly. :)
Wow, that sounds great! Lucky you.
Wow! Talk about convergence: Former REM drummer Bill Berry has also been learning to make sushi (via http://v+.blogspot.com).
Me and Bill Berry. We go way back. Wish they had more pics, so we could critique his sushi technique.
