Chilly Cow, Chilli Garden, and two mini-recipes

Sorry, still busy enough to not post much. However:

- The Chilly Cow on Mass Ave in Arlington Center is YUM. Really excellent frozen custard. The pumpkin tastes like frozen pie, but we recommend the vanilla. Tastes almost butterscotch it is so rich and creamy.

- The chicken with vinegar at Chilli Garden in Medford is DREAMY. Comes with celery and bok choy and thin-sliced chicken in a buttery sour sauce. Absolutely fantastic. Also, it is something that can be safely eaten before swing dancing, unlike most Sichuan dishes that are full of garlic and/or spicy peppers, and therefore we will now be able to eat more frequently at Chilli Garden -- we are in Medford fairly often to dance and every time we mourn the reality that we can't take the opportunity to have a Chilli Garden fest.

- Sera brand turkish red pepper paste mixed with mayonnaise (and some spices, but that's optional) made a really excellent marinade for chicken thigh that went into the grill pan tonight. Easy as hell and really delicious.

- corn off the cob + lima beans + leftover green and yellow beans + lots of dill = yum
