Last night I made something nearing indescribably delicious. It was short ribs, carrots and leeks braised (ok, slow-cooked) in soy sauce, fresh ginger, sherry, and beef broth…a take on Chinese red-cooked ribs, I’m sure. It was a pretty straightforward recipe, so when the ribs were done, I decided to ‘zazz it up with some accoutrements. I strained the braising liquid, defatted it, and reduced it over high heat ’til it was about 1/3 of its original amount. I then added some lime juice, and topped the ribs (and some rice noodles) with the reduced sauce and finely sliced scallions, cilantro and…jalapeno pepper.

I washed my hands, like, 5 times last night. Still managed to Pike myself about 3 times, though.
I am a moron.
I should probably start de-seeding with a small spoon instead of my fingers, huh?
Oh, and BTW, speaking of skinny jeans and damage to the eyes…I have to say this: I still maintain that they are horrible. And they look horrible on everyone. Here is a list of people skinny jeans look horrible on:
- Fat Women
- Skinny Women
- Fat Men
- Skinny Men
In short, do not wear them. You’re Piking my eyes…and my heart.
Hey, do I sound about 5 quaternalianjillion light years old? Awesome. That’s just what I was going for.
