I realized a while back that I don't really write in this journal anymore, as I really don't have much to say, so I have decided to convert it to simply being dedicated to cooking as far as recipes, ideas, menus, photos of dishes, etc. If this is not to your liking or interest I apologize, but since I am fairly sure this isn't really read that much, it shouldn't be too much of a worry.
Sunday night I Sauteed some leeks that were done in a fine chiffonade, with some balsamic tossed shaved water chestnuts. A little bit of unsalted butter, toss in the leeks and let them roll for a bit, then when they pick up the first nice hints of color, i tossed in the chestnuts that were tossed in a mixture of balsamic vinegar and sesame seeds, as well as a bit of salt and pepper. Shallots and garlic finely minced were started the flavor base, and it came out nice, with a sweet and tangy crunch to accompany the nice buttery leeks. I served it with an haricot vert and caramelized onion risotto, and some nice sauteed vegetables. There were supposed to be rib-eyes as well, but my friend was drunk and asleep, so it was vegetarian night. Good shit I must say.
