 InterconnectednessIn All Sorts Of Ways. . . The word and concept of interconnectedness has long fascinated me.  Not so much as a matter (no pun intended) of science but in general.   Things seem to come together in odd yet almost amazing ways at times.  Some simultaneously and others quite randomly.  On a recent train trip to Chinatown in the city of Los Angeles, it was apparent - change was underfoot before my own eyes. In fact, there was evidence of that even while walking from the train station on the sidewalk.  One can see things happening as well as others not happening.   Perhaps coincidentally (or not) the trip was on New Year’s Eve Day. Arriving before noon, there was activity but it seemed more quiet than usual. Some storefront locations were closed. Either for the day or for ...

Lasagna Soup: Seriously once you make it you want to make it again and again. We were at Vroman’s Book Store in Pasadena, and yes I was browsing at the cookbook section and found this great book: Love & Lemons EVERY DAY.  Yes, the Title  caught my attention. I started perusing the recipes and two immediately popped out for me to make.  One was a  Lasagna Rolled Up recipe. Who doesn’t love Lasagna? The problem I have with it, that there are only two of us and I do not see the logic of making it because the flat panned version is great if you have an army of guests. Now with that said I have not made it in a long, long, time. What a great idea, I wish I thought of it, Lasagna Roll-Ups. Clearly, I can limit the portions. Once I made it, I realized how much I loved the idea.   I boiled som...

The Day after Christmas: Yes I did manage to finish the decorations, those of you who read my  blog posts over the years, know that we have not had a vertical Christmas Tree in over two decades... one of our cats just loved to hug and knock the tree over. Hence I went to the Horizontal Christmas Tree and it has been a tradition ever since....I have loved Christmas ever since I was a little boy and now that I am an old man I still love it. Keep in mind Diane appreciates the decorations as much as I do. Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.

Almost Speechless Sunday: My grandfather on my mother's side loved to cook and he had a saying. If you love your stomach and love to eat, then you know how to cook. Needless to say he was a great cook, I heard many stories of his improvisation, when unexpected guests showed up at his door step. He knew how to stretch the meal and everyone would feel full and not feel hungry when they left....So you can imagine my  surprise when we were at Vroman's in Pasadena for the   'After Christmas Sale' to buy our Holiday Cards for next year. Well see for your self. Not quite the same words but the message resonated with me and reminded me of my Grandfather.  Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.

Sometimes things turn out differently than what we would expect... we were in multiple offers and the seller accepted the better offer.... sadly the second buyer did not want to be in first position backup. If for some reason this first buyer walks now the second buyer will be competing with other buyers again.The seller and the buyer's agent are thrilled that we opened escrow. There was a great deal of interest and activity on this lot.'...Build your dream home on this fantastic parcel of land just a short distance from the metro Gold Line, surrounded by nature and minutes to all the hotspots on and near Figueroa.

Yellowtail Carpaccio in Yuzu Sauce... on  a Saturday Night. Keep in mind this was just the appetizer!This is such a delicious Japanese Sashimi, the ingredients are simple Hamachi, also known as yellowtail, garlic Yuzu, Soy Sauce and marinated pickles. Others make this with Jalapeno instead of pickles I find it that distracts from the sweet flavors of the Sashimi Grade Hamachi and my way complements the citrus flavors.The key is to have quality ingredients, focus on the Hamachi there are no dark parts. If you went to Nobu you would have paid over $50 and would have received  one third of the amount I prepared:))Just to be clear I marinated the pickles a while back:))   Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.

Today is December 7th and every year I think of the year 1941. This day as FDR said 'would live in infamy.' There has been a lot of years that passed and not many people even remember this day when the Empire of Japan attacked the United States at Pear Harbor.My point is we should remember this day and learn from it. I have many friends who are of Japanese descent. I learned to love Sashimi, Sushi and many other ethnic foods that we can attribute to the Japanese because, of the friendships we developed and I learned to appreciate the food I was not familiar with.Most importantly, the lessons are, that not all people are evil. There are politicians who paint the wrong scenario for their own personal gains, but it does not mean we need to allow them or permit them to get away with it.Dian...

Not a Wordless Wednesday Post: what do you do with your Thanksgiving decorations? Some people put them on their front steps and let nature take its course and toss them in the trash. Not me, well if you know me here it comes....I decide to repurpose them. How about making bake stuffed Honey Butternut Squash with left over Turkey, Garbanzo Beans, Kale and a little Tomato Sauce with Parmesan chees on top.In case you are wondering the other Squash was Delicata Squash. Same stuffing and let me know which one you liked best?     Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.

Ending the Thanksgiving Weekend: My tradition has  always been that I would  bake the small pumpkins. They  were part of the indoor  decorations. Now they would become the vessel for the left over Turkey Soup.From one perspective it is very unusual but at the same time very delicious.Easy to do, you cut the pumpkin, clean out the insides, wipe with a little Olive Oil the insides and bake them for 15-20 minutes depending on the size at 400 degrees.In the mean time warm the left over Turkey Soup on the stove top. Then simply fill the pumpkin with the soup and bake at 350 degrees for another ten minutes.Let me know what you think?    Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.
