    Do you, sir, perhaps posess a jug without a handle?

    On the Coast of Coromandel,
    Where the early pumpkins grow,
    In the middle of the woods
    Lived the Yonghy-Bonghy-Bo.

    Two old chairs, and half a candle,
    One old jug without a handle,
    These were all his worldly goods:
    In the middle of the woods,
    These were all the worldly goods
    Of the Yonghy-Bonghy-Bo.

    Michi,
    It was a great time. Just remembered this morning about the venison backstrap I meant to sautee.

    I can cook a bit.

    But I SERIOUSLY need to up my game on presentation.

    David, a hotel head chef I worked under forever ago used to walk behind me on the line, look at what I was plateing up and say:

    "People eat with their eyes, you know?"

    He was right.

    I did think at the time that you had quite a few wines before we started cooking :)

    Just to refresh your memory, you did indeed cook venison for an appetizer. Rather nice venison, too. Marinated with thyme, rosemary, and garlic, as I recall. I enjoyed it a lot. You did too, judging by your expression at the time, even if you can’t remember that anymore… :D

    Oops!:eek: Ok so that is embarrassing!

    I'm afraid Sunday was a "everything in moderation except moderation" day. Fortunately it was fun and ended without drama.

    And Monday was VERY long!:(

    I don’t think it’s embarrassing, I think it’s funny :)

    Yeah, I thought it went on for longer than usual, too ;)

    Nice stuff you all!

    I’ve been in Portland Oregon for the week. Got in some fishing time and caught a pile of walleye perch. I brought my wok setup to the AirBNB and cooked up a fresh batch. Blown away. Cleaned and froze the rest and divided it with the family. Mine are still frozen solid despite the 10 hour drive home. Can’t wait to cook some for the wife. (She didn’t go to Portland with me )

    I made a traditional Chinese Dan Dan Noodle dish with chopped pork a couple days ago. Then we had a charcoal grilled steak dinner the next day.

    Today, I sliced up the leftover steak, and used the leftover Dan Dan hot sauce and leftover noodles for a bastardized Dan Dan Steak and Noodle bowl. That sauce is fantastic; it works with anything.

    I made this recipe once before, leaving out the Okra because as a kid in the Southern USA I was traumatized by slimy okra. But in a traditional Gumbo like this -- shrimp and sausage -- I learned about how "slime" converts to "thickening" if you're careful. So there is a lot of okra here for thickening.

    These shrimps are probably too big for a traditional recipe, but I'm experimenting here. The one thing I've learned so far, is don't overdo the tomatoes. Gumbo isn't a tomato sauce.

    Okras. I still can't fathom how an ancestor decided this thing is edible..

    Picked when they are young and smaller, I really enjoy eating them raw. No slime at all.
