PS- Hey Trad'r Bill- I got these crabs at the Ranch 99 in El Cerrito, my Go-To Crab Tank!



There's a Ranch 99 in California too?! Is it a chain? I had no idea - I just figured since the structure here in Washington was located on HWY 99 that they named the business to reflect it's location. Does yours have that deli where you can pack your own container? The chicken wings here are to die for - I think they add some addictive ingredient (besides salt)! I actually will CRAVE their wings sometimes (this from the woman who never had a craving for ANYthing throughout her pregnancy!)

Yes, the Ranch 99 has stores in CA, WA, NV and TX!
http://www.99ranch.com/

They don't quite say where the name came from.
The hot food IS like crack. VERY difficult to resist if I am in the neighborhood
(I used to live w/in walking distance). The El Cerrito store is in the Pacific East mall with about a dozen
good restaurants, a bubble pearl tea house, fresh pandan leaf waffles (or a pig's ear sandwich),
a smoke shop, herb and tea stores, toy stores, candy shop, clothing etc etc.
http://chezannies.blogspot.com/2008/05/pandan-waffles.html

Breakfast for dinner- always a favorite around our house!
As well as dinner for breakfast...

But tonite we had a seemingly endless snacking session as things came off the grills:
This plate shows the leftovers (I expect they'll make killer tacos tomorrow)

Prosciutto wrapped scallops, fresh trout with papaya mango salsa, pan fried chicken cutlets
with ume plums and shiso leaf, fruits.

With it being 12 degrees Wahine Kim went with ramped up "comfort food"....whole wheat baked spaghetti filled with Italian meatballs/hot sausage/FRESH zucchini-crimini mushrooms-garlic-shallots-marinara topped with parm/asiago/mozz. Served with a romaine/cukes/grape tomato/red onion salad, dressed with Italian vinaigrette and fresh crusty garlic bread....and a bottle of Layer Cake Primitivo Zinfandel. We had so much leftover, but it was great.

Pre-Oven

Ready to roll

OK, it's Valentine's Day and Chinese New Year so I did a combo dinner tonight. I had to work a short shift today (7 hours) so I cheated quite a bit.


Tablescape. The Chinese character for "love" is painted on the bottom of clear plastic plates.


From front to back;
Orange Chicken, I fried the chicken chunks and added bottle Orange Sauce
Pork Fried Rice, I did this one, even made the Chinese BBQ Pork
Teriyaki Beef, from the WalMart freezer section
Potstickers, from the WalMart freezer section
Dessert, bought Almond Cookies and Chocolate Dipped Fortune Cookies
