Meatloaf does’t make for the prettiest dish but it tastes great if made right.  It’s one of those polarizing foods like cilantro or uni. Many people have bad memories of a dry, bland meat lump from childhood or cafeterias. I encourage you to revisit this classic American dish. #meatloaf #lunch #nyc #comfortfood

Astoria’s emissions glide gracefully through the night. My walk home cold yet satisfying. #astoria #nyc #winter

So, someone requested chicken skewers & pineapple salsa today; I gave them this: Grilled chicken marinated in a purée of charred scallions, ginger, garlic, all spice, clove, soy sauce, roasted jalepeño & serrano chilis, oil and a few other ingredients I can’t remember. The pineapple for the ‘salsa’ was grilled & tossed w/ cucumber, radish, lime juice & scallions. A little sautéed garlic spinach for good luck. #lunch #nyc #chicken

Even without a real grill available, I am still a big fan if grilled scallions.
