I don't know about Camel Milk but those two brown things look kinda like Camel nutz.

Hil yours looks good and like something we make with good seasoning Italian salad dressing.
You that the same stuff you got up there put it all in a casserole dish and cover with two packets of the dressing mixed up as directed and bake for 1.5 hours.

Very easy and good, even better the next day.

Mike we had a guy from Morocco work at the restaurant as a fill in temp one day and he HATED women telling him what to do, he had NO respect for them.


Well he was at the wrong place with my two sisters and mom there barking at him all day.
He only worked there one day.

I wonder if he is still here in the USA.
Man it would be tough for him to get along with his attitude.

The chicken part looks good, though!


Happy New Year to you & CeCe too, David! Thanks again for sharing that recipe - that's the only way I'll make that pie again. Huge improvement!

We went to the Wo Fat Restaurant in Honolulu's Chinatown glad we did as it is closed now.
But they came around with the dim sum cart and this little old lady who was "not good with English" insisted we take this one item off of the cart I think it was "Mountain oysters" or cow balls.

It was not that good gristly and tough like you would guess them to be, we got the feeling they were in the back laughing at getting us to take them.
The inside of the restaurant was stark and like a cafeteria, not in a good way.
Overall the place was not great but was historic so that made it worthwhile.

I love going to Chinatowns when we travel even though they make it clear most times they don't want us there.

Cool thing about Chinatowns is they never improve, they are mostly the same as they were when built.

I made a wrong turn in Honolulu several years ago and ended near Chinatown. It was not the right place for a white boy after dark

I bought a portable gas flattop griddle about a year ago and have made some great use of it. Have used it for bacon and pancakes, Benihana styles meals, etc. But it is really good for cooking boneless chicken breasts or thighs. It doesn't drip on the fire and flare up like a grill so the chicken stays juicier and soot-free.

Saturday night was choose-your-own-ingredients Mongolian BBQ for 7 people. Dessert was Tropical Fruit Foster with lots of fresh fruits, butter, brown sugar, and rum over vanilla ice cream with honey sesame stick topping.



Last night was Philadelphia Cheese Steak Sandwiches

That looks like a nice grill Mike.

We went to China town in New York city and about dusk 12 cop cars came rolling in, we left.
Did not look like a place we should be.

My brother in law who lives in NY would not go to China town with us.
We brought his kids back a duck head and the duck feet as a joke in a bag.

The Peking duck house was great, China town in New York city looked like a set from Starsky and Hutch.
Steam rolling up from the street grates, Narrow streets with fire escapes on buildings.

This one is for OGR.
Bacon wrapped rumaki made with watermelon pickles in the middle.


Cheese straws made with the cookie press gun.

Red ones are cayenne pepper, green ones jalapeno pepper, yellow ones parmesan cheese.

Flank steak rubbed with paprika, pepper, garlic and onion powder, broiled and served on a salad.



Talk on the previous page about “cheap” flank steak made me laugh, too; $9.99/pound at the only grocery store in my mountain town.

Every Summer and Winter Olympics my daughter and I have a party complete with food from the host country. We have done China (2008), Canada (2010), England (2012), Russia (2014), Brazil (2016) and now I am experimenting with some Korean food for next month

Danpatbbang is a Red Bean Pastry - yeast dough filled with sweetened red bean paste. Not bad but a little bland, could have used some cinnamon or nuts or something. The real ones will have black sesame seeds on top as a garnish. As I understand, they don't have the lavish desserts in Asia like we do in Western culture and red bean paste is a common filling.

Experimenting with some Thai grill flavors. Gai Yang (Thai Grilled Chicken), Red Curry Veggies, Jasmine Rice. Chai Banana Daiquiri (that's supposed to be a goose garnish ) For dessert, an interesting Avocado Coconut Ice Cream served on the half-shell (the photo color doesn't do it justice, it was a beautiful shade of green)
