“Chile Verder Stew” Cedar Park, 2024

I made a comforting chile verde pork stew today. I thought it was pretty good, but I would love to put chunks of potato in it next time. Mariko says that doesn’t sound as appealing though, as she’s not as big a “potato person” as I am. 😀

Here’s the recipe we used: https://www.seriouseats.com/easy-pressure-cooker-pork-chile-verde-recipe

For Mother’s Day we had a couple of friends over to our house to eat temaki sushi. It’s so fun to make your own sushi hand-rolls, and of course it’s so delicious! In addition, Mariko made some karaage, and I made cocktails. A fun dinner!

I went for a nice ride with Kiki (my motorbike) to meet a friend at the camera store. The store has a semi-annual event where they give out gift vouchers of varying value to the first 50 customers. I got lucky and received a $25 voucher, which I used to buy a couple of packs of Instax film. Woot!

After that, I rode to Ramen Del Barrio to try some of the Mexican-fusion ramen. I ordered the carnitas tonkotsu, which was excellent!

I took my Insta360 camera along for the ride so I could make a little motovlog video. Hopefully I can edit it and upload this week.

What a fun day!
