Paul Winalski wrote:"Ants climbing a tree" is a bit of stir-fried ground pork, Sichuan doubanjiang (chili bean paste), soy sauce, and soaked mung bean thread noodles cooked in stock until the noodles absorb nearly all of the stock. When you pick up the transparent bean thread noodles with chopsticks, bits of the pork cling to them like ants climbing a tree.

-Paul W.


That sounds divine, and I adore mung bean noodles. Can you post the recipe?

Chicken soup tonight. Broth for Bob, with noodles for me. Apparently he picked up some intestinal bug on the trip home from abroad that's taken hold real good, and is now on Cipro and a liquid-only diet. No fun!

Last night I roasted a whole filet of salmon to take to wine club. Slathered it with apple cider syrup then sprinkled liberally with chopped fresh rosemary and bacon salt. Fantastic.

Tonight: meat loaf, which I've been starving for.

Brunch today: two slices of pan-fried meatloaf topped with a fried egg (for Bob) and chives. Peaches on the side.

Possibly subconsciously, just did it on the fly. A simple meal with simple ingredients on hand, after a long day. It was a yummy meal.

At least we get to go by the asparagus farm and rescue some big, fat export quality sparrowgrass from furriners, :wink:

Dinner last night was one of the first dishes I ever learned to cook--Joyce Chen's stir-fried beef with green peppers.

One of my favorite Chinese restaurants dishes, Paul. You're making me hungry!


Tonight: charcuterie tray of Italian cured meats, pickled green beans, and fresh chilled asparagus coated with lemon juice and parmesan cheese followed by Armandino Batali's meatloaf, garlicky green salad and roasted zucchini. For 30.

Really enjoyed this pickled mushroom recipe
https://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/101 ... room-salad

I used maitake and velvet peppolini from farmer's market, with shiitakes, creminis, and king trumpets from Korean supermarket

currently trying to lose a few, so didn't do the toast and creme fraiche, but maybe as an app for Thanksgiving.
But great on its own.

Dale, did you use as much sugar as the recipe calls for? I love everything about the recipe but that part; not too sweet?

it’s our annual Beluga day so tonight we are grazing. Beluga caviar, smoked salmon, a smooth pate, a washed rind cheese. Blinis, toast points, fresh sourdough. Dill pickles, sour cream, sliced egg, egg salad, rocket. Freizenet bubbles to sip along.
It was all pretty damn good.

Oh I should have said, I probably used more like 1 or 2 teaspoons rather than 3 tablespoons. I don't eat dessert, and habitually put in a fraction of whatever sugar is called for in recipes.

Barb, sounds great. Beluga is still banned in US, but I love it.
