Frozen fruit with fresh squeezed lime juice. A little fresh mint is optional but a nice addition, too.
I'm enjoying some frozen pineapple with lime juice right now but it works on blueberries, mixed berries, raspberries, peaches, etc. Low calories, no fat, lots of fiber, easy and it tastes great. Definitely a nice alternative to classic summer treats like ice cream.

So I've loved bulgogi---Korean BBQ beef, sliced thin and thrown on the grill---for a long time. You really have to get good thin sliced beef and make a nice marinade with ingredients like sesame oil, ginger, etc. Nice recipes are available on the intarweb, e.g.,
Pork bulgogi is even better, but I've not tried that in a while. Same basic idea but with lots of chili peppers! :)

Not much going on. I'm afraid I haven't cooked anything novel in a while as I was caught up in the end of the semester and various other things.

I am going to a BBQ in a little while and am bringing a six pack of beer along with this variation on good old potato salad:
12 mixed color waxy potatoes (red, white and blue, actually!), cubed
1 medium Vidalia onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
12 grape tomatoes, halved
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup tarragon vinegar
1/4 cup prepared mustard
sea salt to taste
black pepper to taste
2 tbsp dried tarragon
2 tbsp ground cumin
1 tbsp dried dill
2 tbsp ground turmeric

I can smell neighbors starting charcoal.... Of course I still live in circumstances that make grilling largely unworkable personally, but hey, I can vicariously enjoy it.
In the meantime, I did discover something kind of neat. TJ's sells this thin sliced raw beef in one pound packs. I'd guess it's probably sirloin given its consistency. You could do quite a number of things with it, but here's what I did:

Given that Stuart's indicated he's "a theoretician" this leaves me(!?!) the empiricist here, I'll post an update to my previous hot cereal.
I made one change. I used soy milk for the liquid base, which I've done for breakfast couscous before. This time it was:
