I was previously unaware that samsa was just one language point to the wider known samosa. however, sometimes things just don’t look anything like themselves…. yes for whatever reason food came to mind and trying to think of something “new.” I mean I do have that bottle of tamarind soda ….as if I were in the mood for sweet and sour NOTHING *fry bread and vegetables similar to the sweet and sour chicken pork beef shrimp etc chinese-american stuff but alll vegetarian… but i did that already. so, randomly yammering food – the finer points of meatloaf choke and puke…so disagree..sloppy joes which so sound good…to fancy soup night…then i got stuff investigating Little Russia, aka Brighton Beach NY.
the picture listed the names wrong so I ended up reviewing all the dises as I literally do not recognize everything going. but i was thinking Pelmeni’s and i got manti, samsa aka samosa and funchoza…yes apparently the Koreans run food in Little Russia 😉 manti means dumpling, funchoza is korean noodle salad but scarily had a chinz supplies thing where they cheated the ingredients and otherwise had high content of inappropriate minerals…bunk noodles… but this a rare time I happen to LIKE them noodles…glass noodles – I was alway told they were sai-fun noodle or came white cooked clear. and I remember early into cooking I tried duplicating a mongolian hotpot with lamb , them noodles some carrots, green onion and broth straight from that grugal gourmet. it was the only time so far i wasn’t hit or miss with lamb. I’m very very hit or miss with lamb – however before my Irish pal passed, he raved on and on about how all over his travels, we had better beef in colorado but no one touched ireland for lamb…however around here we’d more likely get you to chomp a buffalo which wasn’t menu many places initially now try not to find a burger joint with no buffalo burge…not fast food mind you burger joints the land of the over priced burgers. but suffice it to say I’m not thinking meaty.
http://www.nycgo.com/slideshows/must-see-brighton-beach/11 – nyc budget joint in Little Russia/ Brighton Beach just outside NYC… imagine being able to get lunch at prices not scare your grand children High. Elza Fancy Food is tsupposedly this kind of place and as I age, I get less and less certain I’ll be toolin around St Petersburg chasing the midnight sun, but lucky I can maybe manage another NYC thing…but this time none of that white castle disappointment but maybe some of those places you hear about.
andways mole is a Mexican sauce – holy mole is better than blasphemy but only just and manti mole might be a combination of monte carlo and holy mole and manti. I can’t remember if they said in this or another listing if they offered Pumkin manti…which got me thinking mole not because mole is sweet but it’s oddly savory and sweet which can work. and thus i began thinking of making something pumkiny which I’ve had pumkin ravioli proper and i’ve had that chocolate mole which is toasty, chocolatey a dab spicy and savory toned by virtue of the other liquids and spices…..but making it more of a chocolate with pumpkin pie spices array and thus demanding it look savory but be nearly sweet/desserty. then I thought screw pumpkin a butternut squash one and corresponding red pepper onion medlied ones mole but blonder and still savory too. then I was thinking toss that why not weird shit no one’s doing… Florence fennel returns now and again for fancified dining.. it’s almost a celery feeling veg but it’s way huge sweet but can handle a savory tone too. and drown it in a lemon sauce and then dallop the sour cream or yogurt on.
visions of packing a makeshift dumpling tent places appeared and were rejected for all the bull pucky of prove it on paper/fees first then try to get permission then if you’re lucky you can have a good time… hassle plus that’s a flat out pain to lug a tent of any kind a couple of coolers and cooking aparatus worth using not using to cause forrect fires.
ah well, I avoid getting to sleep because I honestly meant to be places today. but, i found the one I met at the bar outting and was rather surpised it must be a slow night to yammer with me… now now people can be actually pretty and also far different than expectations too but I’m not particularly outdoorsey- not to say I never get about in them, I’m not all that outdoorsie…but whatever, i said hello again adding a fb friend and we’ll see if our paths somehow cross again. moab’s out as in unless you need all the worst travel music ever…I’m in heaven…others use other H words. ;)I rally don’t think bicycle knowing it’s such a hassel to own one and i can not ride is so so many more situations than before etc I don’t drive so walkabouts is about all I ever was energetic enough for and there is a pretty place or two, I might not be shit out of luck 😀 but thinking of outtings brings me to associate them lol so hence that paragraph.
anyways, be it the nyc transit of chasing the line towards Pelmenis or the more bunkish turdsville of errand running to return books and rnew my I.d. so perhaps then i can renew my passport and sometime before summer’s out use the dang thing. maybe try and not think what has never sounded romantic or even fun just that urge to do something take a walk and make it somehow…just taking a walk and not a walk down the sunsets of the rest of our lives meaningful/clingy sounding? who knows. it seems as if i’m supposed to turn into the life of some party…I thought it odd when i figured out i was. the party as activities….I never remember holidays seemingly or other’s birthdays…shh about it being always on and having birthday alarms all over the place 😉 but, in completely the right spirit, here I sit trying to think of what to do with my moment out
whether it’ll be the long drawn out blade of b.s. line mouldering at the gov office followed by the homeless shakedown for smokes at the library only to be too damned tired to get excited about geeks who drink beer trivia at the irish joint at 8…suspiciously stranding me to needing a cab home or both ways actually….. I mean can you just hear the clock tick tock right about now LAUGHING at me saying the time ticks as I sit like a lump of shit whining to no one but my own eyes about the potential for tomorrow? sad. but sad makes me think of food and as it’s military monday at the froyo.. that’s an idea. I’ve a serious hankering for zuchini chips…there is a carl’s jr. available closest thing to a hardees which this place dont get…or remember them burger chef. I don’t feel like trying to cozy up to some 40 something and try to sneak into costco or waste money on a membership – they can not make my eyeglasses, their computer stuff is not a significant savings and I just can not see 2.50 a hot dog soda combo set of trips 100 more times this year….but larceny does interest me and i might just sneak into places of membership without one here soon.
