Late Night Kitchen Sink Ratatouille

Your guess would be as good as mine as to why I made ratatouille just now at 1 AM.

I generally tend to view anything that doesn't involve meat as fairly easy when it comes to the labor, even if it isn't.

I've had some eggplants sitting around and I've been meaning to do something with them. They gave me the inspiration to make ratatouille, but they're still sitting on my counter because I bought another eggplant for my ratatouille purposes when I was at the store earlier. I did not have my phone on me, so I could not look up a recipe for ratatouille to make sure I had all the ingredients. I decided I was gonna wing it (improvise).

Potato Latkes

This was a recipe that was handed out around last December by a teacher whose class I helped out by tutoring. The teacher was Jewish, so that's how the class ended up eating potato pancakes for show and tell.

New flavors I HATE: Beautiful

How can something taste beautiful? or stupid?

I had one of those learning weekends where you find out the hard way that you can't eat everything and won't eat everything.

It started at weekly dim sum.

They have two kinds of jelly on the dessert cart. Rose and Dragonfruit. I know I love the dragon fruit, but I couldn't say I prefer it to the rose because I'd never had it. The guy could only describe the taste as "beautiful" and I generally don't like perfumy flavors. I tried it and immediately regretted it. If you would never go into your backyard and find roses to eat immediately, then anything with a strong flower flavor is not a good idea. It's good in some macarons, but that's only if done right. 

It was my lucky day, after dim sum, my sister and I went to get Turkish coffee. Along with the coffee they served us lokum, ROSE flavored lokum. 

As someone who can kind of know immediately upon description whether or not I'll like something, if I ever find myself questioning if I'll like something, then the answer is most likely no.
