Early into the summer, the connecting bolt on my over door came loose.  The oven door handle was rendered useless.  Thankfully, the hardware store had a properly sized connecting bolt.

I call this the "Cheesy Hashbrown, Chorizo, Over Easy Stack".  Sriracha is the sauce you see on the plate.  A few days after returning home, I made this.

This is what brought the chopped barbecue sandwich closer to perfection.  This is a cole slaw recipe attributed to James Beard.  It's made with mayonnaise, sour cream, horse radish, mustard powder, salt, and pepper.

The name of the Asian Market is "V".  Before I moved, I went here to get fresh seafood.  The Asian spices and seasonings that lined their aisles intimidated me and I never dared to cook with them.  When I returned back to Hempstead, I decided to put my fears aside.  So far, this fish sauce has been used to make tuna salad, tartar sauce, curried mussels, and a package of Lipton noodles.

I'm late to the game on Sriracha.  I've tried it in the past but I've never tasted it in a thoughtful way.  In those times, it was merely a hurried squeeze on whatever I was applying it to.  This summer I finally purchased a bottle from an Asian market in Hempstead.  I've come to love this stuff.

While in Midtown, I stopped at a thrift store for some rimmed bowls. I purchased three.  This is my favorite.  For the blog, I shot these with a baby fig leaf placed in the middle of the bowl.

After a few back in the ATL, I ventured to Whole Foods for lunch.  At the entrance were fig trees on sale for $9.99.  I've always wanted a fig tree.

And after a lot of effort, the fig tree was planted in my back yard.  I'm told that it will mature in one year.

This is another purchase from that Asian market.  The impetus for this was "Great Tastes Made Simple" by Andrea Immer.  She raved about pairing steamed vegetables drizzled with sesame oil with an oaked chardonnay.  This is my dipping oil of choice whenever I happen to have a baguette.
