Friday Five: name five things

the friday five

1. Name five things in your refrigerator. Myzithra cheese, dill relish, Kikkoman Teriyaki sauce (a staple ingedient in our marinades), Frank's RedHot Original, and Annie's Naturals mustards. Yes, I love condiments.

2. Name five things in your freezer. Ben and Jerry's ice cream (currently Makin' Whoopie Pie, Oatmeal Cookie and Mint Chocolate Cookie), phyllo dough, red bean popsicles, frozen juice concentrate, and frozen veggies.

3. Name five things under your kitchen sink. Extra paper towels, Simple Green, bulk vegetable oil, bulk white vinegar, and a trash can.

4. Name five things around your computer. A box of tissues, unfiled paperwork from the Mountain Youth Festival flyers, a box of greeting cards, Zicam (both original zinc and Congestion Relief) and my tea mug (empty).

5. Name five things in your medicine cabinet. Adhesive bandages, Advil, clemastine, cough syrup and enough alcohol preps to stock an immunization clinic. They're left over from a former houseguest with a feeding tube, who also left us several cases of a meal-replacement drink that I worked on for months in hopes of it helping me gain weight (it didn't).

Red bean popsicles?

I have a soft spot for anything made with sweet red bean paste (recipe) after my Japanese roommate at Mary Baldwin introduced me to it.

A lot of Asian restaurants offer red bean ice cream, which is basically sweet red bean paste well-blended with vanilla ice cream, and one of my big splurges when we lived in Goldsboro was to order it at Hikari's. Since moving back home, the nearest place I can get red bean ice cream is down the hill.

When my mother-in-law heard about me craving it, she went to one of the major Asian markets in Denver, which was out of ice cream that day so bought popsicles, which aren't sweet. After Robert tried one, he described them as cooked red beans frozen in flavored water.

there are also those delectable dumplings that you can get at dim sum, with the red bean paste in the center and the crispy sesame outside... mmmm... makes my mouth water.
