everything's baby

hi. remember me? you've heard the lame excuses before - usually involving corporate america, muni, or both so i'll save you the time. point is - i'm back! and here to share some words of wisdom on this fine friday morning.



street fight is the best documentary nominated for an oscar. don't argue with me on this one... it just is. moreover i've got some news you're probably not going to like - the movie makes murderball boring - a big fat YAWN. let me put it this way - i had to take my cell phone out during the show to try to find out via text message how the story ends. i was so fired up i couldn't wait! granted i tend to sway towards these mega-social-injustice sort of flicks (you still haven't seen the corporation? what? you're killing me!) but i totally believe everyone needs to see this one. like - asap. its playing right now at the roxie so get yourself over there and watch it.



got a grill pan and no inspiration? imagine my delight when i found this. the easiest and most delicious idea for salmon of all time. got the recipe from epicurious, my slightly altered version substituting dijon & wasabi for the chinese hot mustard is below.


3 tablespoons brown sugar
3 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon wasabi paste
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
2 8-ounce salmon filets, skin removed

Heat grill pan or barbecue (medium-high heat). Combine brown sugar, mustard, wasabi and soy sauce in medium bowl; whisk to blend. Transfer 1 tablespoon glaze to small bowl; mix in rice vinegar and set aside. Brush 1 side of salmon generously with half of glaze in medium bowl. Place salmon, glazed side down, onto pan/bbq. Grill until glaze is slightly charred, about 4 minutes. Brush top side of salmon with remaining glaze in medium bowl. Turn salmon over and grill until second side is slightly charred and salmon is just opaque in center, about 5 minutes longer. Transfer salmon to plates. Drizzle reserved glaze in small bowl over salmon and serve.

2 Servings; can be doubled.
