Last week (hmmmmmm….. two weeks ago by now!) we took our son out to dinner for his 22nd birthday. It was his golden birthday, like he cared! Since it was his choice, we went to Fugu Restaurant in Madison, which is new. Despite the Japanese name, it’s an "Asian Fusion" place with lots of Thai and Chinese dishes. It”s not vegetarian, but they had lots of vegetarian stuff for us. The birthday boy ordered something with pork (*sigh*). (Is this how they rebel? 21 years of vegetarianism…. well, we did the best we could….)
I ordered some spicy eggplant in garlic sauce, which could have been the best I’ve ever eaten. And seaweed salad, which was absolutely awesome!!! I came home wanting to make it myself, so I did a little online research, and I see that Diet, Dessert and Dogs has a recipe, and so does this site, although the salad I had contained more than wakame, and one from a vegan forum, and so as you can see, I am collecting some recipes here!
I’ve been writing conference reportrs all week and weekend in advance of parent-teacher conferences coming up. And my computer is drenched in molasses, or why else would it run so slowly? And my camera is lame. But otherwise we are still here and fine 🙂
