Cream of celery soup; baby bok choi – 8 December 2013

I made this soup using a semi-recipe online friend B, but I’m sure I’m missing something. In particular, I don’t get a strong celery taste, though there are many more celery pieces per cubic centimeter than in the canned celery … Continue reading

Swordfish; avocado/orange salad; rice; baby bok choi – 25 May 2013

I’ve been wanting to make this recipe again, and finally found a good time to do it. It was less good than previously, probably b/c the orange and the avocados I used were a bit odd. It was still very … Continue reading

Not so good Pizza Margherita; excellent baby bok choy – 27 July 2011
