KERF’s Little Helper

September 29, 2009

Thank goodness for husbands! I’ve been busy working and studying and he kept me fed.

Starting with a little snack around 5:00. He was rummaging in the kitchen for a snack and I said "I’m hungry too. Can you please bring me something to put in my mouth?"

Next thing I know there’s a little bowl of nuts for munching. [He even took the photo while i typed!]

Next delivery: a beer tasting! [I didn’t ask for this one!] He wanted me to try his newest Peach Wheat.

It was good, but not fabulous. Too sour!

He consulted me on the food stock and we decided on a stir-fry with beans and bok choy and rice.

He cooked carrot, celery and green pepper in a wok, added the stalks of some bok choy and 1 cup of canned navy beans, then the greens of the bok choy and finally a sauce made from a little-of-this rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, tamari, wasabi powder, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes.

Garnished with some toasted sesame seeds

It was delish, but left me wanting to cleanse my palate afterwards!

Thanks for all your help Kanz! "Ooo ooo!"

18 Lindsay September 29, 2009 at 9:01 pm

Too cute! I love that he took the pic of your snack for you!


19 Cara (Cara Craves...) September 29, 2009 at 9:03 pm

Dinner looks great, as always.

The peach wheat sounds like a winner in my books.
One of my fav. restaurants in Ontario serves a Strawberry beer, which is to die for, so I think I would enjoy the peach.


20 Madeline @ Greens and Jeans September 29, 2009 at 9:07 pm

You have such a great husband! You guys need to try Seadogs Blueberry Ale if you haven’t already!


21 Emily (A Nutritionist Eats) September 29, 2009 at 9:11 pm

What a sweet husband! :) Good luck on your test!!


22 Eileen September 29, 2009 at 9:11 pm

Matt rocks. The pic of him cooking is really, really nice.

I’m starting to crave pumpkin ales. YUM.

25 Stephanie September 29, 2009 at 9:28 pm

He’s a keeper!! :) :)


26 CSisk September 29, 2009 at 9:33 pm

Hey Kath!

I have a serious questions for ya…ok…not really that serious, but important! I remember a while back ago you posted a video from one of your classes on eating disorders. Well, I am a professor teaching nutrition at a university, and I really wanted to show that film to my class. Would it be possible for you to send me the link? I would really appreciate it! Good luck studying for MNT! I am about to take the RD exam in a couple of weeks…yikes. :) I just finished my MS/internship program, and am teaching part time. It is a great way to study for the RD exam! Anyway, thanks again. Love your blog!


27 OrganicAshley September 29, 2009 at 9:36 pm

I have a chance to tell you that I am totally loving the new camera. I am saving up for one now. I am going to buy a camera soon and then keep saving up for the kind you have. :) You’re a lucky girl to have a guy who can cook such healthy and satisfying snacks and dinners.


28 lynn (The Actors Diet) September 29, 2009 at 9:41 pm

yay matt! tell him he’s a superstar!


29 Morgan @ Life After Bagels September 29, 2009 at 10:01 pm

That description of your beer makes me feel like it would taste like fuzzy peaches!


30 Jessica September 29, 2009 at 10:11 pm

31 Deb (Smoothie Girl Eats Too) September 29, 2009 at 10:12 pm

Ha! That’s funny that he even took a photo of the nut bowl. I get photos from my hubby when he’s traveling- and it’s of a big scoop of ice cream or some fabulous meal…I tell him that he’s a closet food blogger and I’m gonna make him guest post one day 😀 Hubbies!


32 maria September 29, 2009 at 11:08 pm

35 Magdalena September 29, 2009 at 11:56 pm

A quick question – what type of china do you have?

I love all your plates and bowls; they look ideal for the type of food I typically food (various types of bowls, etc.)


36 Ashley September 30, 2009 at 1:31 am

Ahhh, peach wheat sounds like such a winner!! Love the impromptu, husband-made dinner!! =) Still jealous of your weekend trip to SanFran!

So lucky you have such a nice helper!!! Oh, and pleeease kill those spiders–yuck haha!


43 Kath September 30, 2009 at 7:54 am

Lungberg’s short grain brown. it’s the best! Made with veggie broth so it’s a darker brown.

It was Nova’s “Dying to be Thin”

It’s Pottery Barn’s Great White (although our plates are a different line from a local store in South Carolina).



44 Rebecca September 30, 2009 at 7:55 am

What a sweet husband! My boyfriend takes pictures for me too!


45 Diana September 30, 2009 at 8:09 am

48 NIcole (dishin') September 30, 2009 at 10:38 am
