Elyse Sings at Blossom Dinner!

Our “other Daughter in-law” sang at Blossom Sunday with the Cleveland Orchestra Chorus. Normally we would have had a picnic at Blossom but we had quite a bit to do at home so we did a quick stir fry and what has become one of our new favorites coconut rice. The stir fry was with extra firm tofu, sugar snap peas, yellow squash, garlic, and onions. I slice the tofu and put it on paper towels and paper towels on top and then a plate on top of that to remove as much moisture as possible. After about 20 minutes I cube the slices and the stir fry was with a thai garlic chili sauce with soy, oyster sauce,  chicken broth and a small amount of corn starch to thicken it.

I had started the coconut rice in our rice cooker earlier and it finished right on time to be served. The rice is just divine and does not have to be made with a rice cooker the link is to a rice cooker recipe but a standard one is listed as well. The taste and texture of this rice is great and we will be making this again!

About Kim Galizio

I am involved in 2 blogs. For Lettuce Never Squash Our Love - I have a great desire to support our local farm community and joining a CSA was one way to do that. In the process we found it fascinating to explore what we can do with our CSA box and what others are doing as well. For Lean is Good - My first exposure to lean was in 1991 as TPM coordinator for 10 years at a rubber manufacturing facility. I love the blues both playing and listening being part of the Kent music scene for many years. I will plug the Kent Stage for Folk and Blues shows and go see 15-60-75 the numbers band whenever they are playing it will be worth it.

    It was a beautiful show, and we were so excited when we sat down and found that Elyse’s name was in the program! And Kim made a great dinner before the show! We got the sugar snap peas from Wah at he Farmer’s market. They were so fresh, and I love coconut, so I loved the coconut rice. We got the idea from a meal we had when we were at Chautauqua early this summer.

    Does anybody else think about how happy it must make our farmer Matt feel when we have a nice soft rain like we did today? I think about his farm now in such a personal way, but also how helpless farmers must feel sometimes as well. You can do nothing about the weather!
