    Last night's dinner was pathetic. (canned soup and velveeta shells) But tonight will be different. I am making this salad recipe I saw in More magazine, for a Mixed Lettuce Salad with Classic Vinaigrette. Looks easy to make. And I think a nice glass of white wine will go great with that.

    well, we would frown upon that, but while we are not looking i suggest you hide some cans in our butter drawer , in the crisper, and other strategic areas of our fridge...[​IMG]

    After a full day of drinking and hanging out in the sun yesterday, I had the munchies when I got home. I promptly made crispy, salted fried shrimps and chinese broccoli with oyster sauce. Both were eaten with steamed rice and downed with a Fat Weasel Ale from Trader Joe's. My gf, who was half asleep, smelled the aroma and woke up. It was simple and delicious. I'll definitely think twice next time about going to Chinatown after a night out drinking.

    I'm just wondering, brother, what are the differences between Chinese, Japanese and Korean (if there is a kind) shabu shabu? And why do Koreans use stainless steel bowls and chopsticks?

    to make it difficult for those of us with fat, stubby fingers to eat. then they get to make a big deal of bringing you wooden, disposible, inelegant chopsticks.

    brother, i have no idea. i just know it to be 'shabu shabu' because my wife told me so. i just take her word for it.
    and why do we use stainless steel bowls for rice? i dont know as well, brother. only thing i can think of is that the waitress will usually leave the steel bowl of rice at the end of the table , not in front of you, forcing you to pick it up quickly and dropping /slamming it in front of you on the table because it TOTALLY BURNS YOUR FINGERS.
    and why do we use metal skinny chopsticks? i dont know my friend.
    only thing i can think of is if you use these in a restaurant, it is a clear gauge as how 'korean ' you are if you can pick up any rice with them at all (try picking up slippery noodles with them. you cannot , unless you are truly korean; an official test used by the korean government). the ajumas in the back will be watching you and scoffing and laughing at you. then they will bring the forgiving wooden sticks you break in half (always one end broken like a turkey wishbone, and the other stick a short wedge stump) that the rice can stick to.


    oh btw, we had Costco pizza last nite for dinner.

    Two of my aunts are over, and their making enchiladas. They usually come out quite nicely, especially considering they're whipped up by two pasty-white Irish women.
