Spicy scallop gunkenzushi is my absolute favorite piece!

Grandson Josh and I are getting ready to play "pick up sticks". He had never heard of the game before, I told him my brother and I use to play it a lot when we were kids.

I gave my sewing machine to Son #1. He can get better use out of it than me. He likes to sew, I don't. And the family can now go to him to do their mending.

I'm roasting some pearl onions and big garlic cloves. I'm thinking half for creamed spinach and half for the soup I started with the peels and layers of the onions and 3 drumsticks.
