Sweet and salty lotus root
Cucumber salad
Carrots like I make for bibimpap
Sticky rice obviously

And, I have a good chunk of Asian pear now that I've made the meat marinade. Not sure what to do with that, guess I could pickle it but we've already got several pickled and sort of pickled dishes. Any ideas? We have a fairly extensive Asian ingredient pantry.

Got a couple of bottles of soju in the fridge.

I may have to raid the good china for enough little bowls for all those things. Finally a use for mother's china!

Pics to follow later after everything is made.
geez, I guess my invite got lost in the mail
MT, Craig, you're my kinda folks!
Most of my pantry is of the Asian persuasion too.
I also agree with you, Korean BBQ is best done over coals, MMM!
STOP! You're making me homesick! We have NO Korean food here in the middle of the desert! I so miss that! *sniff*

Banchans. In addition to the originals mentioned, I ended up using some of the squid, asian pear, cuke, red bell, with a ground mustard seed, sugar, rice vinegar dressing to make a little salad.



Galbi (flanken), rice, and seafood pancake.



It was all good, though I'd probably add a little more kimchi and sesame oil to the pancake batter. Plus, the lotus root was interesting, actually ended up being my "dessert," but don't know if I'd make it again since it took better part of hour to cook because of multiple steps. I have to admit, even though it costs a lot more compared to doing it at home, I think I'd rather somebody else make all those little dishes and just present them to me in a finished form so I can eat. This was kind of exhausting when all was said and done. My time line was a bit off, though I'll admit I ended up taking a couple of breaks.

Leftovers. Today was ROMP (Retired Old Men Playing) or BOTB (Boys On The Boat) day. Went for a cruise with the guys out to the Isles of Shoals. Saw pods of dolphins and seals. I was responsible for food, so I rode the bike to the bakery early this morning to pick up a baguette. Ham, swiss, tomato, and lettuce sandwiches. Cheese and crackers, Trader Joe's chips, fruit, cowboy cookies. Brought home enough leftovers for dinner, but everything tasted much better out on the ocean.

Everything looks and sounds so good tonight!

I'm not very hungry after the nice lunch with my son, but SC is hungry as he was Angel flying, and I can always eat! I brined some nice thick boneless chops before I left so I'll do them in a skillet and finish with some browned sliced onions and a little Mojo sauce. SC made some glorified salads.
Thanks for my son's bday wishes. He's one of my life's two masterpieces.

Well, that was the worst ham loaf I've ever had. DH and I talked about sneaking it into our neighbor's freezer, as we're watching his house while he's gone, but that wouldn't be nice. The hash brown casserole and cherry cheese cake were good though.

Thinking the ham loaf and the trash can will be meeting soon. It's bad enough that I don't think I can salvage it.

Medtran: your banchans look wonderful. Yum!

I just cheat and buy mine. Once in a blue moon I'll make my own kimchi... like once a decade. LOL.

Pretty yummy afternoon dinner...can you tell I like lots of goodies on my enchiladas and refried beans? A day or two of leftovers are tucked away in the fridge in a casserole dish.

Update: the finished product, no verdict yet from upstairs, but I can hear an awful lot of slurping going on that's a good thing

We were out for the day: Farmers' Market, Lowe's, then down to the Long Island Sound/Block Island Sound for a shore good dinner. We ate at a little clam hut a friend told me about a couple years ago, Two Little Fish. Took us long enough, both in getting there and in getting our meal. From in the door to food-on-table, it was an hour! Himself said if we come again, he's packing a lunch to eat in line while we wait to order.

He had fried clam strips with fries and coleslaw. I had a platter with two cod fritters, 2 crab cakes, coleslaw, and clam chowder. So very good! We'll go again, but not this year. They'll be closing right after Labor Day, but they told us to come next year in April or May. Few customers until "in season" starts on Memorial Day, and school is still in session then, too. We'll have to remember that come spring.

Kgirl, come on, with the food you make you can do Korean too.

Thanks Kathy Lee. There's 1 Asian market that makes their own that's not too far and that tasted pretty good, but the closet one to us doesn't. I don't mind making it since it's not hard to do and is a do ahead anyway.
