M is for: Mussel Madness 7 {& recipe for Thai-style Mussels}

"Everyday I'm musseling."

Yup...I used that joke about 85 times on Saturday. And yes, I thought I was hilarious.

This past weekend, I had the amazing opportunity to join in on a longstanding tradition that includes some of my very favorite things: wine, gourmet cheese, seafood, the beach, and friends. Aside from the 50 mph winds, it couldn't have been a more perfect day.

Devon and I were invited to "Mussel Madness 7" by our co-worker, David Koppett. As you might have guessed by the name, this is the 7th year for this amazing event. It started out small the first year...maybe 7-10 people and has grown to over close to 200 people, ranging in ages from babies to 80 years old.

M is for: Mushroom Brown Rice Risotto {Recipe Remake}

I love risotto. 

Like, really really love it. When I see it on the menu at an Italian restaurant, it’s always in the running for things I consider ordering.

But here’s the problem…as much as I adore the creamy texture that Arborio or Carnaroli rice creates for traditional risotto…I’ve really been making an effort recently to only eat brown or black rice these days. So I decided…why not brown rice risotto?

I knew it would take longer, but I decided it would be a nice experiment on the blog. (I would also be interested to try something like farro…but I was making dinner for my celiac friend Devon, so I stuck with rice).

M is for: Miso Soup with Mushrooms {& moving}

Hello my darling blog followers. Once again, I find myself apologizing for the hiatus on e is for eat. My life has been a whirlwind these days, and unfortunately the blog has taken a back seat. Though…not to worry, I promise to bring you several delicious recipes and adventures in the coming weeks. (Starting today!)

The main reason for my absence is because I’m moving. I realize this will come as a shock to those who know just how much I adore San Francisco and all of the culinary treats it has to offer…both in the way of markets and restaurants. I cannot quite yet reveal the reason for the move (though it’s become one of the worst kept secrets in the Bay Area). But in due time, I will let everyone in on the exciting news. In the meantime, I have been doing my best to take full advantage of the short time I have remaining in San Francisco by doing as many things in the city as possible before I leave. (If you follow me on instagram, you have been along for the ride with my #SireSF posts).
