Monday dinner, December 17, what's on your plate?

Surprised nobody has started a thread yet.

Sushi and seared tuna with avocado and homemade ponzu, with a little bit of red pepper flakes and finely chopped jalapeno thrown on.

Sushi is:

Maine lobster with Kewpie mayo and a tiny bit of wasabi.

Shrimp with asparagus, shredded carrot, cucumber, avo, green onions and wasabi.

Spicy tuna with kimchi base, cucumber and green onions.

Vege rolls with above veges, wasabi and wilted chopped spinach with just a touch of sesame oil.

And we have 1 each leftover of the shrimp, lobster and vege rolls for lunch or brunch tomorrow.

You beat me to it by a few minutes. It's national maple syrup day! For those of us in northern New England, we think it should be in March.

I should have made maple glazed salmon (so easy!), but I didn't. I had already planned sweet and sour beef stew in the pressure cooker, so that's what I went with. Served over egg noodles, green salad on the side.

Wowzers! Nicely done!

I've had a ton of sushi before, but never a Maine lobster roll. Only lobster "salad" rolls, which is prepared lobster salad on top of a California roll.

It's National Maple Syrup day in Canada, too. Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund let me know. He guards the buckets; a very important job.

In recognition of Maple Syrup Day I had maple syrup in my oatmeal this morning.

However, dinner was representative of half a world away. We had Tom Yum Gai and egg rolls.

Casey, you need to make my Caribbean marinated grilled poke chops. I'd want to hear your critique, er, obviously expected praise.

Wonderful sounding dinners as usual!

I built a tostada again this afternoon using the last of the ingredients from a couple of days ago, and had a fresh fruit salad on the side.
