Happy Sunday Everyone!
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving meal with your family and friends.
The Friday after Thanksgiving is the best day of transform all your leftovers into a new dish. The remaining turkey, cranberry sauce and stuffing from the day before all can become a perfect breakfast ensemble. These leftovers taste better the next day as they will have soaked up all the flavor.
With that in mind I will show you how to transform your turkey leftovers into a flavorful meal
This shiitake ramen will help you to welcome the winter cold like your favourite blanket. The richness and depth of flavor from the shiitake and shiro miso compliment turkey very well. A steaming bowl of delicious ramen while relaxing on the couch makes a great start to the weekend after Thanksgiving.

Happy Saturday Everyone!
I hope everyone has a nice week. I was enjoying a nice out even it was a little cold now. I like it in between 60-75 degrees.
It feels like Fall outside.
It is chill.
It is getting dark early at night.
Leaves are falling.
I need something to keep me warm.... hot tea, hot chocolate, soup, spicy Thai soup ( Tom Yum, Tom Ka, Tom Zap, etc. ), spicy food or something with ginger in it.
Ginger has a warm and tingly on the tongue-- has been using in Chinese and Thai medicine--good flavor in marinade sauce. And I need to find a piece of meat to soak in a ginger&sesame marinade sauce.

Hi Everyone !!!! Happy Friday
One more week before summer ends. This year I have to say we are lucky in Chicago, it is nice out still. we have 65-75 degrees. I remember around this time last year, it was colder. I am feeling thankful.
If you remember last week I was talking about making a last dish for summer which was Stir-fried snow peas and mushrooms with Asian marinated flank steak. There is nothing wrong with making one more dish for the end of summer :) …..
My friends, Leeann who loves BBQ and Misha who enjoys parties-Threw " end of summer BBQ party" right before we stay in-side and cuddle up for fall and winter. This party is for their friends who enjoy food and drinks especially BBQ chicken from Leeann's grill. The keys are the unique flavor from South African seasoning and the way she cooked her meat perfectly.
Salad bowls are a great ideas for potluck parties, birthday parties, house warming party or BBQ parties…. It is a satisfying dish for someone who loves pasta and vegetables.
If you love salad, you will enjoy flavors of The End Of Summer Greek Pasta salad with Italian dressing. Parmesan romano & Asiago cheese give tartness to Italian dressing-Tangy from apple cider vinegar and feta cheese gives a perfect combination to this salad.

Hi Everyone !
I can't believe we are in the middle of September already! Which reminds us it will be the end of summer. I had a thought to make a dish to say good bye to summer before Fall is knocking on my door.
Last week after I picked up some flank steak from the grocery place, I was looking for vegetables to work with this yummy and tasty flank steak. What could be good with beef flavor ? I was lucky to find some snow peas this late in summer. So let snow peas be my feature of this week.
I wanted to make a stir-fry that would bring the flavors out from beef and be a little crunchy from the snow peas. This is a great and satisfying dish perfect for a week night meal. Perhaps you can enjoy this meal in between one of the many festivals or activities going on this weekend, or Sunday night to wind down and relax from the weekend.
Oh well….. It's the last month to enjoy summer food and summer fests…
I am not ready to say good bye to summer yet because so many festivals are still going on.….
Here are some festivals for this week:
- The portage park community fair : Enjoy food, crafts and arts. I know one of my friends shows her craft works there. Check out The Three Letter Birds works of whimsical insiprations and spiring .
- Spirits tasting at the zoo : get ready to be shaken and stirred.
- Oaktoberfest : celebrate the changing season. Enjoy pulled pork, wine, craft beer and music.
- Evanston art & big fork festival : food , music and art.

"You love someone, you open yourself up to suffering, that's the sad truth. Maybe they'll break your heart, maybe you'll break their heart and never be able to look at yourself in the same way. Those are the risks. That's the burden.Like wings, they have weight, we feel that weight on our backs, but they are a burden that lifts us. Burdens which allow us" Bones
