A pastrami sandwich. Corned and smoked the brisket myself back around St. Paddy's. Had a chunk vac packed in the freezer and have been eating it over the last few days. May have to smoke a corned beef from the market to stock the freezer again

Co-worker gave me some green tomatoes and little eggplants he picked before they got killed by frost...so I made eggplant and chickpea curry. Also has some chard which I needed to use up. Color not too attractive, but tasty.

I've been in a Kimchi Mood lately.

Took a quick drive to Rene's Bakery and brought home a few things.  Had a slice of their Bête Noire flourless chocolate cake/torte.  :-)

Huiray, Both of these last 2 dishes are drool worthy, and if I don't stop, I'm going to short out my keyboard.

Making a note to get over to Asia Mart soon. I NEED some of that pork! :-)

Thanks, caroled.

Regarding Asia Mart - They get fresh stuff usually on Thursdays so Thursday nights or Fridays (better) - or Saturdays (but big crowd) - would be good times to drop by there.

Following the discussion of the Chinese burger that starts here

http://forums.egullet.org/topic/146204-china-a-year-of-dining/?p=1995629

I had to try my hand at a very poor imitation. I took the bread recipe from here

http://omnivorescookbook.com/recipes/authentic-pork-belly-bun

And invented my own filling from leftover beef, onions, a few coins of smashed ginger, a star anise, salt, white pepper and chicken broth.

I am at a disadvantage having never had an opportunity to sample the real thing. Nevertheless it was a tasty lunch.

Tonkotsu ramen [sun Noodles], with Chinese roast pork [from Asia Mart], big-leaf tong ho (edible chrysanthemum), hard-boiled egg, and sliced Tokyo negi.

 

DSCN3163a_800.jpg

 

See here.  The big-leaf type is shown in the bottom picture.  This is the type that is preferred by many Cantonese, including myself, and is the type I almost always ate when having tong ho both in my growing-up years and in my earlier adulthood, even in the UK.  For some reason this is seldom found (in a general sense) in the USA, at least in my parts, while the small-leaf type (the upper picture in the link) is far more common.
