I shall send you a sympathy card sir!

Last night's dinner plans changed here too. I'd had 5 moles removed for biopsy, Bob and I both had DR. appointments, and we got home tired, hot, and uninspired. We opted for a simple soup and some pita chips, Acini Di Pepe with Lemon Broth and Black Pepper. I'm looking forward to the leftover for lunch today.

I like it spicy but she doesn't so I throw chili flakes on mine. When she learns to like more spicy foods then I'll throw some thai chilis in there.
IC, this looks wonderful. I luv pasta... & veggies. The soy, sake, mirin, ginger beef ragu sounds delish. Can you share your recipe? TIA

I'll post it up later today or tonight. I have to figure out the rough proportions since I don't have a written recipe for this.
