    Default Dinner last night Sat 10Oct09

    Got some lovely large lobster tails from a roadside van. Poached them in
    butter (I long for a temperature-regulated poacher!) and served with yuzu
    and ketjap manis over a bed of pea tendrils and garnished on the side with
    avocado slices.

    Started out with a pureed soup of garlic and fava beans, side dishes were
    steamed choy sum and miso-pickled cucumbers, and we finished with a trifle
    made from yellow cake, vanilla custard, poached loquats, almonds, and
    whipped cream.

    I got a wonderful "reward" later: I give *him* ten points out of ten -- all
    three times! <giggle!>

    "served with a".....? "over a bed of".....? "Garnished... with"? Are
    you a menu writer or is this for real?

    What's to wonder? I only had to look up yuzu, the rest being quite
    easily understood. Would you have us believe terms like "bed of" and
    "garnished" are beyond rfc denizens?

    i hold no brief as to julana's identity or purpose, but it didn't sound
    outlandish to me, either.

    It's a stalker troll.

    Best bet is to killfile it.

    If we are not meant to eat animals,
    why are they made of meat?

    No, I believe that most RFC'ers understand the terms, but most don't
    post so pretentiously. But carry on...
