Opera Night #2

Traditionally, when neeuqdrazil goes to the opera, I spend the night eating food that's a) bad for me, and b) the she won't eat, getting drunk, and watch unsettling things that I have found on the internet.

The food component of this oipera night was, for once, not really that bad for me. It was, instead, an experiment; I tried to make "Thai meatloaf". Ground turkey with cilantro, garlic, green and white onions, chili, sesme and chili oils, eggs, dark soy sauce and a few other things, all baked together. I was worried about overdoing it; bsed on the result, I should have used more cilantro, garlic and soy sauce, and perhaps thrown in some garlic. To accomapny the odd meatloaf, I had baked sweet potatoes, and stirfried mushrooms, carrots, zucchini and garlic with a little soy sauce. I made a sauce that, again, was not quite as exotic as I had hoped. I reduced 2/3 of a bottle of wine with chili oil, chili flakes, soy sauce and ginger root, and when that had thickened, added tomato paste; the wine and tomato paste won the flavour contest; I had hoped for a tie.

On the whole, certainly not a bad experiment, but I think I need to read more Thai cookbooks before I try this again.

in other news, wine is tasty.
