After the intense chromaticisms of Strauss' Elektra, I'm about to come "down to earth" a bit with some B and M Baked Beans and supa-delicious pork hot dogs...JA!

Mrs. Rock wanted Vietnamese Summer Rolls for dinner so we drove off to the Asian market this evening and bought the ingredients: fish sauce (we like Oyster brand), rice paper, rice vermicelli, fresh Thai basil, cilantro, culantro and ginger; frozen lemon grass (not as hard as fresh).

We fry shrimp and diced chicken breast (sometimes pork) in sesame oil with garlic, ginger, onion, lemon grass. The shrimp gets "salted" with fish sauce; the meat with soy sauce.

At the table you roll the meat and shrimp in the rice paper with the noodles, fresh herbs and spring onions. The shrimp roll is dipped in a fish sauce (half Oyster, half water, and chopped red chili); the chicken roll in a hot sweet and sour sauce made of sambal olek, honey and vinegar. We drank Sekt (German champagne) with it. Delicious. One of our favorite meals.

Buckwheat is really really healthy whole-grain food.  It's not sold in regular supermarkets as grain.  But I but it in a russian store. 

To cook it, is really easy.  Put a cup of buckwheat in a flat-bottomed pot, add 2 cups and just a tad more of water to it.  Wait till it boils, add a little bit of sault, close the lid and put on low fire until all the water is absorbed.  The sault will bring out the flavor, it should not be too much.

Now I like buckwheat with milk.  After it's done, I just add cold milk to the bowl and eat it.

Another alternative is to fry chopped onions, and mushrooms(optional) in olive oil with sault, and mix it into the buckwheat.  When serving, add a bit more olive oil.

To me, it sounds like this buckwheat can be had with plain yogurt as well, particularly with the onion-ed version.

Eating 'in house' tonight - Quail from the Nipissing Game Farm (Ontario, CA) bought locally - will be sauteed w/ onions, sherry, etc. + veggie or salad (up to the LOML) - BONUS will be 'sampling' of two Oregon Pinot Noirs which just arrived:  Lemelson Thea's Selection & Six Vineyards, both 2005 vintage - can't wait!  ;D

Nice.  I love carbonara.  It's one of those dishes that everyone has a different thoughts about how it should be so it leads to a ton of recipes out there.  How did you make yours?

Bogey,

Chow mein looks good but no General in the order?

Sonic,

Sounds wonderful.

The Mrs. and I just enjoyed this out on the back porch:

I made mine by cooking some bacon and sliced onions in a pan, then adding the pasta (cooked beforehand), and then the egg, salt and some ground pepper. If I had any garlic, I probably would have used it, and some thicker bacon with less fat would have probably worked better, but overall it was very a tasty and substantial meal that took no time at all.

Fast, delicious and nutritious: One ripe papaya, peeled, seeded and cubed, covered with lots of Greek Honey Yogurt accompanied by a small glass of whole milk - none of the blue watery stuff! - from an organic local dairy.

Allan - hope that is some fresh basil on that pizza!  ;D  One of my favorite pizzas is just thin crust, fresh tomato sauce, light on the cheese, and basil (put on at last so not overcooked) - yum!  Hey - my Oregon Pinot Noirs would be great w/ that dish! 

BTW - the Quail was outstanding - LOML just served up some peas on the side (which I love) - another outstanding side w/ this bird would be a starch such as a wild rice mixture w/ mushrooms - YEH -  :D

Bill - love Chinese takeout; have a place up the road that delivers, so a couple times a month, we love to go that route - of course, if an alcoholic beverage is desired, beer is great, but for those interested in wine - give a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc a try - really a nice combo!  :)
