    Sushi from a local restaurant with a good sushi chef. Shrimp tempura, Unagi and Yellowtail rolls with a seaweed salad. I have enough left over for breakfast, or lunch for one of us.

    I tried my hand on making some Thai/Chinese soup.
    Really loved the soups I ate in Thailand recently (but already too long ago).
    It became some sort of fusion as I had roast pork from the Chinese challenge.
    I cooked noodles and set them asides.
    I also had 3 types of dried mushrooms (from Thailand) which I soaked and put to the side
    Then a pot of water with Nam Prik Pao (Thai Chili Jam) and the left over Char Siu marinade. Boiled for a bit.
    Then added the soaked mushrooms and sliced tomato, left to boil.
    Added the meat, noodles and cracked an egg in it. Sirred the white and left the yolk (soft poached).
    Put in a bowl and seasoned with some fish sauce and lime juice.
    It tasted nothing like the soups in Thailand, but was very nice anyway :)

    I made a Spanish inspired octopus, squid and chorizo stew yesterday. We had friends over for a "last supper" since they are moving to Colorado in a week. It was a work out, but so satisfying and we have enough for another meal plus a couple of giveaways. We all enjoyed some Manchego cheese, olives, dilly beans and hot pepper sauce, hot crusty bread and a savory compound butter. Oh and lots of wine.

    Folks who had never dreamed of eating octopus or a slow cooked squid were amazed at the flavor and texture.

    Our neighbors are having their kitchen remodeled so I decided to get a 2.5 lb cross rib roast from the freezer and sear it on wood-fired hickory then on to the smoker. So we sliced the meat thin and put a pot of hot cheese on, dropped a batch of fries and grabbed onion rolls and took them Arby's Beef N Cheddars and ate our with them..Soooo good.

    I started this dish yesterday so it would be ready today. Venison shank Osso Bucco - this is the toughest meat on a deer and when finished it fell off the bones.
