Ceebu Jen

So on to the first of my international dish posts. The first dish I decided to do (as I explained here) the national dish of Senegal, Ceebu Jen (pronounced cheb-o-djin) - also called Thieboudienne. This comes from the words for fish (ceeb) and rice (jen). So no surprise on what the main parts of this dish are. Here is the Ceebu Jen recipe I worked up and devoured. Also, my camera was dead. We'll call the pictures rustic.

Been A Long Time

I don't suppose I have a great reason or story to tell you about why I disappeared. There are plenty of things I could say.... I started a new job. I started volunteering with a nonprofit I love. Working on a graduate degree. Never home. Always busy. But I won't even try. You get the truth.

The Best Restaurant in the History of Ever

We went to Atlanta for a Celtics-Hawks game a couple of weeks back (big haha to the overzealous guy in all blue yelling at us that the Hawks were clearly better). While we were there, we wanted to try out somewhere new to eat. We started at Taco Mac the night of the game, and it was good for a wings place - and had a very impressive tap listing. The next morning we hit up Hugh Acheson's creation Empire State South for brunch. Hugh recently took home TWO James Beard Foundation awards for his cookbook A New Turn in the South and also won as Top Chef in the Southeast (for his Five and Ten restaurant).

Ugli Fruit

"Ugli Fruit"

Yesterday I posted a photo of a fruit I found at my local Publix labeled "Uniq Fruit". After a brief search today, I found it to be more commonly called "Ugli Fruit". I was curious. I bought it.
