On our return…

It’s been a while, blog! It’s me! Susannah! Sam has his own user name now (onionknight88) so you all can recognize him when he writes.

While Sam hasn’t quite finished our trip details, I’m going to recount one of our meals when we got home. We were still wanting a break from Japanese food, so we planned a three day cilantro fest. First day, Thai (lost the pictures somehow, but it was only curry so whatever. I’ll put them up next time…); Second day, Vietnamese Bành mi; Third day, lettuce leaf tacos (this is one of our standards, so I didn’t really think to take pictures. Just imagine a taco, but the tortilla is lettuce. It’s really amazing.).

Here is the only remaining picture of our three day break from Japanese food:

I made some pickled daikon and carrots to go with the sandwiches! It also has some cucumber, cilantro, butter, and bbq pork we got from the store! Pretty good stuff!

    I love cilantro. Tell me what you mean by a cilantro fest. Can you make cilantro the centerpiece of a meal? If so, I’d like to try to duplicate it. Love, PopPop

      It was less of a cilantro fest and more of three dishes that we could use and not waste our cilantro with. But, you can make cilantro the center of a meal, definitely. If you were so inclined, there are green chicken recipes which use a sauce of blended, fresh herbs. Of course the maker can alter the ratios to their liking, and thus cilantro will be a focal point of the meal.
      For us, we had a thai night, bành mi, and lettuce tacos. All of them used cilantro in one way or another, so by the end our cilantro was all gone and not wasted, which was our main goal.
