I used regular radishes simply because we had them and needed to use them before they went bad. I have used daikon and love pickled daikon. I'll have to post the link for the recipe later. I can't find it right now.

Soju tastes what I would imagine cold saki would taste like. I've only ever had saki warm or room temp, but from what it tastes like as it warms up in your mouth, I'd have to guess it's very similar.

^^ that looks great! Yum.

To answer OP: tonight I'm making Linguine and Clams for DH and Thai Red Chicken Curry for me. And PIE for dessert! I'm making a blackberry/blueberry pie. Wish me luck, I haven't made a real dessert pie in years (I've cheated and used pre-made crusts). Hopefully I can get a good photo to post in the dessert thread.

Thinking I'll griddle up some hot dogs, buttered and toasted buns, with kraut, mustard, and relish.
Dang that sounds good. I have everything except the hot dogs. So I settled for a couple of scrambled eggs.

Rock, that lasagne looks divine.

K-girl,

Korean Food Made Simple: Recipes: Cucumber Kimchi and Radish Pickle | Asian Food Channel is what I used last night. When I taste tested both of them, I thought both needed way more gochugaru. Um, no. As you eat them, the heat builds and I ended up needing the rice and scallion pancakes, and the soju.

Daikon pickled like in your short-cut banh mi recipe is good too.

DW did the shopping and nails thing, and my boy went snow tubing with his school, so I made some lamb shoulder chops, and fried some polents pucks with onions and garlic for myself.

DH went shopping Thursday and found lobster tails on special, so bought a pair; we've been watching "Hell's Kitchen" and the chefs are always making lobster risotto, so a dinner was born

http://www.delectablecookingandbakin...isotto-recipe/

So I made lobster stock to make the risotto with. Really delicious I made pan-seared pollock to go alongside, and roasted asparagus. Yummy meal.
