こんばんは。How are you today?
This evening Mariko prepared a delicious yakiniku (Korean BBQ) meal using her new grill pan which she received as a birthday present. Besides the main grill area, it has “pockets” on the side where you can put different goodies and keep them separate from the main grill. For tonight’s meal, we put cheese in one pocket, corn in another, and kimchee the the other two pockets. It worked great!
This was the first time I had cheese with yakiniku, and frankly, it was a little strange. I love cheese, especially melty, grilled cheese, but it felt a bit out of place with the regular yakiniku. Everyone else seemed to enjoy it quite a bit, though!
Before dinner we celebrated Margarita Day. I never knew there was such a day (and maybe this is the first one) but we might as well celebrate, right? Our basic margarita consists of 1 part lime juice, 1 part Cointreau, and 2 parts tequila. If we want it sweeter, we’ll add a bit of agave syrup. It was yummy as usual!
I hope you had a great day.
