And I would be remiss in not mentioning some of the tasty plates Akemi has made over the past couple of weeks:

Salt-baked sea breem.

Packed in salt then baked at 450 degrees for 20 minutes.  Crack the salt, peel off the skin and enjoy.

Yum!

  1. Can Akemi come cook for me? All I’ve eaten the last couple days has been Hormel chili, peanut butter and jelly, and eggs. 😛 I need to get to the store….soon!

  2. Wow, wow, wow! I didn’t know you could make waffles with sweet potatoes or fry gnocchi, everything looks so good! My puny pineapple-parsley pork ribs seem kinda lame now. That pie is dazzling, and those doggy treats are adorable! I love how Fall-ish all the dishes were, lots of tasty comfort food on a chilly night.

    I’m enjoying one of my old Napster CDs from the 90’s, and yep, lots of the stuff just has not held up over the years. Never thought I’d say this but if I’d rather be conked in the head with an Acme anvil than listen to Andrea Bocelli again.

  3. Akemi’s chickpea salad!! Akemi’s chickpea salad!! I must have that recipe…pleeeeease. My dad went and bought a case of canned chick peas. Twelve cans! Help meeeeeee!!

    All the food pictured here today looks amazing!

  4. This is serious, Joe did not talk about the games or his teams….oh-oh.
    But the food sure looks like winners.

  5. That seabream recipe sounds really interesting! I’ll have to recommend it to customers at work when we get some in again. ^__^

  6. Everything looks amazing! I’d even munch those dog biscuits. I may have to try the salt baked fish. Sounds good and easy.

    How is everyone today? Back pain anyone? I hope all are well.

  7. You know what I want? I want Akemi to do one of your blog entries, Joe – but NOT as herself. Instead, I want her to post the entry as YOU…or, as she sees you. A Day in the Life of Joe, According to Akemi.

    How’s that sound? 🙂

  8. dasndanger: Perhaps Akemi could put one of those POV cams on Joe for a day or two (or three or four). Then it could be a video blog, either with Akemi doing voice overs describe the crazy wacky adventures, or just add subtitles.

    I’d never considered doing sous-vide in mason jars, but of course it makes perfect sense.

  9. I think das has a great idea! (but not such a great diet this week – Hormel Chili?????)

    And all that food looks wonderful. Except maybe the tuna thing. Not so sure about that.

  10. @ Sparrowhawk – Hormel chili really isn’t that bad, considering. It doesn’t have a lot of chemical ingredients, and I always doctor it up with a bit of fresh tomatoes and onions, a squish of lime juice, and bit of pepperjack cheese. In a pinch it makes a decent meal…for homeless people. 🙂

    Okay – been sitting long enough!

    das

  11. How about a link to the song “food glorious food”! They ALL look so good. Reminds me that I will be eating a lot of Sea bass ( 3 flavors, w/lemon, salt and grilled (Blah Poa-with fire).
