|« Not too late for cantaloupe||Chicken Alfredo with variations »|
There were two Labor Day Weekend events more worthy of blogging than anything that happened yesterday.
It was the last weekend that our neighborhood pool would be open. I swam a full mile (1800 yards) on Friday. Saturday I was swam my usual Â¾ mile. Sunday I was late getting to the pool because our son called to talk. Hearing about his first week of class was more important than a long swim. I swam Â½ mile fairly fast (for me - which in the grand scheme of things is not fast at all!) then took the long route home on my bicycle. Now that the pool is closed I have to decide whether to join a gym this fall or swim at an indoor pool across town as I did last year.
In August I blogged several times about sushi nori seaweed papers. Suzanna sent a comment that she tried turkey, tomato, and arrugala wrapped in a sushi nori and thought it was too bland. We corresponded back and forth, and she wrote that she found a combination she really liked. She said, "I seared some fresh slices of tuna, made some fresh wasabi, added fresh spinach leaves and slices of avocado - sort of like a sushi wrap without rice. It was absolutely delicious! The wasabi gave it a little kick of flavor. I think it might have been nice with some toasted sesame seeds as well."
I had never heard of wasabi. Suzanna had to explain that it was a powdered mix of horseradish, mustard and wasabi. She added a little water and spread it on the seaweed paper like you would mayonnaise. Suddenly at the health food market before the Labor Day weekend, I spotted it. Saturday night I tried it with tuna in sushi nori for me and with turkey on sprouted bread for my husband. He thought it was a little hot. I really liked it and plan to make it a regular part of my repertoire
