Mee Katang Kroeung Sa-Mut: Cambodian Seafood Noodles

Sooo… Hii!!
Mee Katang Kroeung Sa-Mut

First of all, I wanted to take a moment and thank everyone for the kind words I received via FB, IG, email and comments on this blog. I adored all the encouraging words asking me to continue to write and post these recipes. Sometimes I don’t feel good enough, especially when I cruise through endless amazing blogs. Then I remember to never compare myself to others and to do just the best that I can.

Cha K’Ney Sach Moun – Ginger Chicken w/ Yellow Squash and Bell Peppers

Cha K'Ney Sach Moun - Ginger Chicken w/ Yellow Squash and Bell Peppers

It’s been a hard week for me, both emotionally and physically. As the summer comes to an end and my time frees up more, I find myself wondering “what now?”. I usually think “what now” as I go from insanely busy to quieter days. It’s been an emotional roller coaster for me that somehow manifest itself into physical pain. Strange how that happens.

Cha Troap – Cambodian Stirfried Eggplants with Turkey and Snow Peas

Cha Troap - Cambodian Stirfried Eggplants with Turkey and Snow Peas

There was an earthquake in my area last night at about 3:30 am. The center was about 1 hour north of my home in the SF Bay Area in Wine Country, the Napa Valley. I adore Napa and I hope there wasn’t too much structural damage though it has been declared a state of emergency. I did see too many wineries with bottles and barrels smashed on the floor, my heart goes out to the smaller businesses which, no doubt are taking a major financial hit from this 6.1 quake. I find myself grateful the quake wasn’t further south, with a magnitude that high, there would’ve been so much damages and fear in my area and I realized as I rode out the quake sitting up on my bed that my family and I aren’t prepared.

Lemongrass Chicken Fried Quail w/ Hennessy Glazed Carrots

Lemongrass Chicken Fried Quail w/ Hennessy Glazed Carrots

I’ve made quails with Kroeung many ways. Pan fried, grilled, bbq, oven baked but for some reason I’ve never thought to bread them and fry them like fried chicken! I tried it out a few months ago and loved it, since then I’ve reworked this recipe more than a few times to get to its present state. I swear, chicken fried anything is fantastic. I’m a sucker for chicken fried steak and I know there’s chicken fried bacon out there somewhere! Although it’s not something I indulge in very much, as much as I love gloriously fatty foods, I love not having a heart attack more.

So Simple It’s Silly: Summer Veggie Pasta

So Simple It's Silly: Quick Summer Pasta

Today was a busy day. Started out with forgetting to turn off my alarm this morning, so I was up 3 hours earlier than planned. Gymboree with my niece, did some work, shopped for a friend’s baby shower gift, took care of some personal errands, did a milk tea run and finally home to play with my niece. Contemplated a trip to the gym but was too exhausted from the running around. My days off are never really “off”, it’s the only time I really get to take care of things.
