    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Delicata squash stuffed with duxelles, wild rice and spinach. Brussels sprouts sauteed with leeks on the side, and steamed artichokes to start. Georges DuBoeuf Beaujolais Nouveau to go along.

    If you're adventurous, here's Chef Manzke's recipe for it.

    My schedule is full with work and travel for the next 3 weeks or so. I might give this a shot on New Years though since I'll have plenty of time (almost 6-7 hours of cooking time required according to that recipe) to prep and cook. Then again I could always just make an easy butternut squash bisque that won't take nearly as long and tastes amazing. We'll see.

    Just finishing off some extra Arpege eggs I kept after making 3 dozen for a company party... "baconized" them by using some salt cured pork lardons instead of salt and to add some texture.

    OK it has been an expensive couple of months, with Christmas and New Years to come, so....STREET FOOD WEEK. All gutter, all week.

    Yesterday:

    Lunch: Banh Mi Ket Bap from a place called Nhu Lan. It is basically a bastardized Vietnamese take on a kebab, using Vietnamese bread and spit roasted pork (VNese not being big eaters of lamb). 15000 dong each - about 80 cents.

    Dinner: Made it a a banh mi day with banh mi thit nuong from my favorite street vendor - the little woman on Nguyen Trai Street who still charges me her 2006 price despite being a white guy. 8000 dong each, had two of them, so again, about 85 cents.

    Ive mentioned her a few times here, but it looked like this:

    I think I am coming down with a virus - and am off work sick today accordingly, feel like crap - so wandered down to a nearby foodhell for bo kho - which is a Vietnamese beef and carrot stew served with bread (or noodles, but I always have bread). 16000 dong, another 85 cents.

    1.5 days down...5.5 to go....less than $2.50 spent, woohoo.

    No pics here either but went out for Fugu (blowfish) at a famous place in Osaka. In truth it is really not that exciting but they do this drink where they put a roasted and chared blowfish fin into a cup of super hot sake. A couple of those will warm you down to your cockles.

    My roommate was in Japan for a week after culinary school. He said pretty much what you said. Fugu is kind of mehh. He said it's a good experience to have but the flavor wasn't so impressive as to want to do it more often. He said eating the sashimi horse was more interesting.
    Hey, BTW, if we come to Japan are you gonna show us all the hot spots?
