Home - is where I want to be / But I guess I'm already there /I come home -
she lifted up her wings /
Guess that this must be the place...

May I suggest Korean? It's a wonderful and underrated style of food, very clean flavors, very healthy, and very distinct from Chinese and Japanese. My favorite style of ethnic food and fun dishes to learn to prepare.

Be ready to smell funky for several days at a time, though.

Ever use a movie for a theme? I am watching Pulp Fiction right now. John Travolta just shot Marvin in the face during the car ride, and I got a sudden hankering for calf brain! (Seriously!)

No, we haven't done that, but it's a cool idea. I'll add it to the list!

(Dave is always after me to make Julia Child's recipe for calves brains in red wine sauce. I keep telling him that he can have it when a) he makes it himself or b) we go to the French Laundry.)
