That's "chocolate EXPLOSION cake", my fingers and my phone keyboard do not always get along! Besides I was distracted by the chocolate cake, chocolate mousse, spiked with large chunks of turtle cheesecake, chocolate flakes and drizzled with chocolate sauce and whipped cream on the side!

So there, you got the "explanation" of the "explosion"!

Andy, that looks truly amazing!

Wondered what kind of "explaining" you would have to do, LP! Sounds great!

And indeed, Andy, looks fantastic!

It's much too hot today for soup, but when the urge hits I just crank up the AC and thank my lucky stars for having it. I just can not wait any longer for a great bowl of soup! Steve has never had my version of War Won Ton soup so tonight is the night!

I don't have a recipe but basically, it's rich chicken broth seasoned with rice wine vinegar, Five Spice powder, white pepper and Soy sauce. To that I add quarter moons of white onion, sliced ribs of Napa cabbage, re hydrated sliced Shiitake mushrooms and simmer gently till tender. Then I add a package of defrosted frozen pot stickers, and simmer till they are tender. At the last I add a few shrimp and serve.

Dang good eats.

Sounds like it. I could do that minus the soy.
