What’s cooking in my kitchen? edit


There is a beautiful Thanksgiving poem waiting for you. Hope you like it!

I have always loved the writings by Mike (in Tokyo) Rogers. He has the distinction of being fired from every FM radio station in Tokyo - one of them three times! BUT, the best part is that he loves food. Do not miss his "Photographic trip to the grocery store", "Eating out in Tokyo for about $25 a day", "Japanese sandwiches are GO!", and two of my favorites articles: "So you want to be a sushi snob", and "The Future of Beef or 'Buddy Ever Eaten a Blowfish?". His new book "Schizophrenic in Japan: An American Ex-Pat's Guide to Japanese and American Society/Politics & Humor" is now on sale!

In the first photo I am showing off my new custom made plates I purchased in Ecuador. They follow the same technique used in Mexico to make "vidrio soplado", that are actually hand made, and hand painted glass pieces. Sin duda, a work of art. I prepared "Camarones al Ajillo", a traditional Panamanian dish that goes perfectly with steamed white rice.

Sea_1 Since we have access to wonderful seafood and fish..., I prepare them quite often. In the second photo, take a look at my "Mariscos a la Parrilla", or grilled seafood dish including shrimp, oysters, clams, corvina, salmon, and conch. As you can see, IF I have the pleasure to feed you,...you wont leave hungry!

Will be back with the recipes SOON!

Melissa, this stuff looks really nice.  Check out my post for today.  I certainly was shocked!!  Thanks from the bottom of my heart.  It was such a surprise and I can’t thank you enough.

I can’t wait for the recipes.  I will surprise my mom with the camarones - her favorite.  I prefer my seafood a la parilla - less fattening - how boring, I know!  grin

CD- Although I don’t eat shrimp I must say your food looks fantastic. And I love the dishes. I may have to send money to get some—wink. I am patiently awaiting some more recipes and I hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving with all of the trimmings

The Garlic Shrimp looks heavenly. Definitely plan to try.

I’m wondering how much difference it would make if the initial phase of cooking the garlic cloves in a shallow pan of water were changed to steaming them?  Just a thought.  I’ve recently started steaming a lot of things such as eggs to hard boil, potatoes after I’ve peeled and cubed and butternut squash that I don’t think I will go back to boiling if I can figure out a way to steam instead.

I’ll be watching your blog - got it in my favorites list. Thanks!

Ayla, thanks for your visit! I do not think it would change the taste of it. What could vary is the time. Maybe 5 mins. more or so. Let me know how does it go! Happy Holidays smile
