    Dear Diary,

    Yesterday lunch was ang moun kreung and boklahong. My sister and her bf’s mom made the boklahong while I slaved over the tbal and na’ray bok’n the kreung. Fast forwarding to this morning, I woke up to the sound of Tiny, the chihuahua puppy licking himself on my bed. Tiny is so cute. He curled up like a ball when he sleeps and make all the normal sounds that a real baby would. Anyways, I had boklahong and moun still on my mind for todays’ lunch. I decided to add a soup dish to the mix. This basic soup consisted of lotus roots, canned mushrooms, and fish balls. Later in the morning, I went ahead an ang the left over moun.

    As I’m typing my entry, Tiny is curled up again and napping. awww…..

    Awww…thanks for your kind words. Photography is something I do for fun. I especially like food photography cuz I get to be the artist behind the camera and in front of the camera. When it comes to khmer food, I’m still learning. I ask mommy and friends for advice and tips. Once you cook something, you kinda remembers it for the next time. The cool thing about cooking is, once you know the basics, the rest is just about improvisation.

    Dear Diary,

    Last night I woke up from a long 3 hour nap. My body was tired from the two previous evening rendezvous at the local watering hole. The time was 9-ish in the evening. After a quick chit chat with my bff, I developed the hunger for a big fat juicy steak. Maybe it was my bff, or maybe it’s just the carnivore in me. Off I went, sandals with socks and a hooded sweats. I’m fortunate to have a meat market/ grocer that opens 24/7. As I got the meat counter, all them gorgeous cuts was under the covers sleeping away. The gentleman flipped on the lights. The pasture of red awaken all my senses. Then came the difficult decision. Which cuts deserves to go home with me. I pondered for a minute, comparing prices and freshness. Finally, my eyes locked a beautiful New York strip. Generous thickness and vibrant red. A steak alone would be boring and lonely. A quick stroll through the produce section, white button mushrooms, onions, and green beans called out my name. With the appealing price of $2/lbs, button mushrooms won. At the checkout counter, romaine heads was on special for $2 a bag.

    The moment I got home, the New Yorker was seasoned with sea salt and peppercorns that I cracked with the mortal and pestle. Drizzles of evoo went on both sides. At the same time, the oven was on full blast on broil. Mushrooms was waiting to be sauteed. Romain was preped and waiting to be tossed with ceasar dressing and bacon bits. I lubed up my cast iron skillet and turned the temperature to high. The strip got a minute of searing on both sides. Off to the oven it went. After four minutes of vigorous workout in the oven, the steak was given four minutes to cool down. The evening was late, but the meal was great!

    Dear Diary,

    The husband didn’t have a very good start to the week. So, I figured I’d try to cheer him up. A quiet dinner for two, at home, seemed like a pretty good idea. Being that he loves Khmer food, I wanted to try. After some coaxing, he agreed to go grocery shopping with me around 8:30PM. I decided to make Moin Cha Kngey, or Chicken with Ginger Stirfry. Usually, I’d opt to chop up some chicken pieces, bones, skin and all. But being as it was so late, I went for some boneless chicken thighs instead. We both like our food spicy, so I changed it up a bit and sliced up some peppers to cook in the stirfry. I think it came out pretty well.

    Moin Cha Kngey or Chicken with Ginger Stirfry

    My family’s having a pre-Christmas dinner on Wednesday night and I wanted to contribute. The husband’s been craving Creme Brulee. I agreed and looked for a recipe. After some searching, I decided on one. Once I got out of work, I went to Williams Sonoma to get a torch and some ramekins so I could do a “test run” before making it for 15 other people. It turned out a lot better than I had expected! Especially, for the first try. Next time, I’d do a better job carmelizing the sugar, making sure I get the edges. I think I was scared of using a torch, being it was my first time.

    Oh how I’ve enjoyed reading this thread. This is quite the genius thread, thread starter. You guys are all very good and I look forward to reading more. I’m a big foodie, but it never occurs to me to snap a picture of my meal to share with others. The only though in my head at the moment is to devour the food. Perhaps I will make a food diary entry if I remember to snap a picture. For those of you who remember to take pictures, please keep the entries coming.
