It's one of those cold, rainy, yucky NW afternoons, so I have a cassoulet in the oven. I'm cheating a little by serving some of it tonight with some toasted French bread sprinkled with parmesan, but I'm saving enough so that the leftovers will taste even better tomorrow night!

Ahi poke, potato salad and something else I can't remember from Don Quiote with a bottle of Orange Gatorade.

Will munch on chips and dips when Battlestar Galatica airs again.

It's hella good, actually. My husband says it's Brazillian, but I don't know. It sounded disgusting to me too, but then I tried it and it's my favorite pizza on earth now.

I had jury duty in downtown Seattle this week. Across from the court building is a new Hawaiian lunch place called 'Honolulu Stadium.' The idea behind it is da kine saimin noodles you could get at Honolulu Stadium in the old days.

They have about 9 combos for saimin and 6 combo plate lunches. I went conservative and had Chicken Katsu. It was ono, but the mac salad was ju' okay. I judge my plate lunches on the mac salad, don't know why, it's just my thing. I gave the guy a 'B.' We discussed it and he said he had never been happy with his mac salad... interesting. I wonder if he'll try any of my suggestions. Two more things: the katsu sauce was the kind I like (some places serve something red) and the rice was oily. I asked and sure enough, he puts a few drops olive oil in the rice cooker! (I never ate it like that, my family is Chinese background, we don't even put in salt. Our food is salty, so no need.)

The biggest sellers in this new place are spam musubi! It's also the cheapest thing on the menu.

Bye the way, near where I live there's a place called Kona Kitchen and they have 'A' quality mac salad. Also, they have breakfast and a pretty big menu. They have salmon cooked two ways, one is fresh but cooked in salt. It's so-oo ono!

My vote for best mac salad on Oahu (one that I remember) is at the lunch wagon across from Hygenic Store in Kahalu'u. (please don't tell me it's gone, either!) But others are interesting, I just don't remember which ones stand out.

Tonight I had homemade chili and rice at home. I always get odd looks when I say that's what I ate. They just don't know what they're missing.

YES TURKEY! So we decide Oh well we are starving just eat....Then my husband opens his calzone....Yes ladies and gentlemen.....COMPLETELY raw! All dough and YUCK....

I tell him I am highly disappointed because my brother had recommended this place and I hoped it woul dbe better than this...He said...well come back on Tuesday it is better then! I said "What's different Tuesday?" He said " I am working" I said "You are working tonight too!" He said " well it's different, not as many people" !
Ooh, that's a comical story! I'll bet it didn't seem funny while you were experiencing it, tho. Did you tell them it was supposed to be your birthday dinner ? Then they may have taken off the price of the wood chip drinks and you could have got out of there without paying a cent.

The part about Tues. being a better day is just insane!
Where did you end up going after that ? Is there a Belated Birthday Dinner Part 2?

Yaeh, yeah...I know...cook poultry well to avoid bird flu. All that I have to say is that I will miss eating maigret during the pandemic. I will miss the drips of rare duckjuice running down my chin.
May I visit you sometime when you're having the duck? France is a long way to go...
Duck is something we eat from time to time, but lots of people I know are sqeamish about it. (I don't mean the Chinese duck, either.) In Chicago, they have now banned fois gras - had you heard about that? They say it's unhealthy. Since my one grandmother was from eastern Europe, we ate a lot of duck, goose, and liver pate when I was growing up. And I love crispy duck skin! (Chinese style, too!)
