We ate up all our leftovers since we're leaving for OH tomorrow. I think we did good. Like the airline ad says "you're free to leave".

i have been beaten about the head on shoulders for my spelling of Cha Shu. On the packet,it is spelled Char Siu. When you are translating from a Chinese ideogram all bets are off!
Kayelle added some of those dried wild mushrooms to the rice which made it even better.

This is the recipe that I had the boys recreate using baker's percentages:

Sesamknäcke - Recept - Mitt Kök

I had them cut them in 4" x 3 " rectangles. If I hadn't sent all the ones left home with the boys, I could snap a picture. Since they'd been to IKEA's food section the night before, I thought it would be fun to make these (rather than have them buy WASA).

We had a breakfast dinner of corned beef hash, scrambled cheesy eggs, toast with honey butter and we wiped out the better part of a cantaloup and a bunch of black grapes.

Tomorrow I may fire up the grill, but we'll see. Tomorrow's breakfast will be the rest of the cantaloup and grapes, more toast with honey butter and some bacon, then we'll have to go shopping again.

Nothing. With this crazy problem I am having with eating, I am afraid to eat anything at all. Although I do have some cans of Campbell Soup in the cabinet. Maybe I could get some of that down without it stopping up my pipes.

Dawgluver is correct. However, neither the steamers or Uni are local. The steamers are Ipswich clams from the northern Atlantic seaboard and the Uni is probably from the Pacific Northwest.

The Ipswich clams are from a town on the North Shore called Ipswich in Massachusetts. There is a protected bed there and you have to have a special license to dig for the clams. They are the sweetest and purist clams around. The area is so well protected that no swimming or any other activity is allowed. As a result the clams multiply in a prolific manner.

There isn't a single clam there. They are all married with very large families.

That is one name for the same species. They are also known as soft-shell clams. They are also found in the UK. Although there may be a specific fishery in Ipswich, it is certainly a very small portion of there range. During the larval stage of their life, they are subject to currents and tidal flow, so unless Ipswich can some how control nature, you would not know where your locales total population originated.
