thinking triple x.

Brief notes on this rainy Monday:

1) Blogger continues to be one of the most annoying pieces of software written this century. iTunes is still solidly in 1st place.

2) Stevia is proving useful in coffee and homemade pickles, otherwise jury remains out. I really wish it worked like sugar in desserts, but yeah, it doesn't: here's a useful writeup of some stevia dos and don'ts .

3) Budget peach-ripening plan worked, all it took was one night wrapped in a linen tea towel on the counter.



peach, habanero, mint salsa.

2 firm but ripe peaches, diced
1 cup diced tomato
1/2 cup sweet onion, chopped
1 to 2 tsp habanero/adjoema/Madame Jeanette, minced
juice of two limes
1 tbsp fresh mint, minced
1 tbsp cilantro, minced
salt to taste

This is good enough to eat by itself (that's one reason there's so much of it), but last night we served it on almond-crusted catfish with thyme, allspice, nutmeg, and black pepper. Tasted great, cooking process was a bit fucked. Need to check on how one is supposed to do a pure nut crust without burning the shit out of it. Don't think I didn't notice the phrase "pure nut crust".
