After having picked up some supplies at a new-ish Asian grocery store (Szechuan/Sichuan Peppercorns, Chili Pepper Paste, some big green onions, etc.), I tried my hand at making this recipe from a book (Street Foods) that I recently aquired. It was pretty simple to make and it tasted pretty good. There were a lot of flavors there to complement the relative bland taste of the tofu and mushrooms, and there were a number of textures. I couldn't tell if most of the heat came from the pepper paste or having fried the peppercorns and red pepper flakes in the oil before using it. I didn't get the mouth-numbing effect, but that was OK. Since this wasn't cooked at a high heat, it feels like there's a bit more flexibility in terms of time when things need to be done. A higher resolution version of the picture is here.

I tend to doodle. Over the years, I've accumulated lots of random sketches of things, sometimes people, sometimes things, and sometimes just abstract lines. The basic idea on these pages is for me to slowly scan in highlights from my collection of random quick doodles. I also am providing a place where I can explain what it is or what motivated it or perhaps some reason why I'm not to blame. With the sketches of people, their name may be hand-written, or there might be a talk title provided, but I will tend to avoid providing full names. I don't mind if people know who they are, I just don't want them coming up on search engine hits, since that might be a bit rude.

Note that the images are PNGs with transparency. Mozilla and Firefox properly render them. Safari too, I think. Internet Exporer doesn't. I don't care.
