Irori Review

horrible lunch at Irori today..ordered a shrimp tempura roll and it was tasteless.. shrimp undercooked.. no crunch, rice was wet and soggier than i have ever experienced..sloppily made..ankimo was edible but the albacore was oversalted and not fresh tasting..all the fish that was served looked hacked not cut... reported this to the mgr. and he comped the tempura roll but i will not go back..and i live right in the area.

Spaguetti squash recipes

..split the squash lengthwise (carefully) /poke a few holes in the outer skin / put a small amt. of water in the cavity /cover with clear wrap..and microwave..till it feels soft enough..(there are usually instructions on the little paper tab on the squash)
..it is fabulous with salt, pepper, butter and a generous amount of SPIKE...a natural seasoning you can get in the health food store.. perfect with the texture and very delicious!

.. thought i was the only one.. when i was a baby/kid (looong time ago) they tell me i used to eat plain butter by the handfull..(pre-cholesterol awareness days)..im still attracted to the creamy taste and texture of room temperature butter...but dont give into the impulse!

Wonderful watermelon recipes?

..watermelon is my favorite fruit of all. mostly i eat it chilled and plain..now and then with a little salt ..cut in cubes its a great side dish to sandwiches and salads.. that cold sweet crunch enhances everything .. i want some now!

mine is 'Stagg Chili Vegetable Garden four-bean corn and bell pepper chili'...you dont have to do a thing to it..sometimes i add some raw chopped onion and a bit of sour cream and some cilantro.. a sprinkle of cheddar if its around..but honestly it doesnt need anything..

..THE original 'Syds' in Newark had the best hot dogs ever....and a unique drink to wash it down called the 'cucamonga'.. long time ago but i can still taste those dogs..have always eaten them with ketchup mustard and chopped onions.. yummm.
