This weekend was brought to you by...carrots

A while ago, sara_tanaquil posted a recipe for a tofu/carrot/sesame concoction in her journal. I personally am not a huge fan of cooked carrots...or vegetables in general...but she raved about it so much that I thought I should give it a try. Plus, I could use any extra carrots for trying the chijimi recipe.

The problem is, I didn't know how many carrots to buy to get six cups of shredded carrot as called for. I reasoned one carrot = one cup, so I bought six. Well, turns out that it's more like one carrot = TWO cups, so now I have a salad bowl full of shredded carrot sitting on my kitchen table, all forlorn. I'd better make that chijimi soon...

Anyway, the recipe did turn out to be quite good. Ordinarily, cooked carrots are too sickeningly sweet for me, but in this case the other flavorings totally covered up the sweetness, so yay.

Then I went shopping for the chijimi ingredients. I had to go to three different grocery stores before I found one that carried a brand of kimchee that didn't have either fish or shrimp in it. >_< I haven't gotten around to making it yet, but the carrots are pleading with me to hurry.

Other than that, the only news this weekend is that the front tire on my bicycle has given up the ghost. I had the rear one replaced last year, so now it's the front one's turn.
