It Will Be Wonderful By and By.


Too hot to run the oven all day, so I jammed that pork shoulder into the crock pot instead and decided I'd do a mess of pulled pork sandwiches. Then I remembered David Chang's Bo Saam, so I made a big batch of cabbage kimchi, some pickled red onions,  Chang's ginger scallion sauce, and did the rappini up in a miso and mirin sauce with a drizzle of sesame oil.

Now the house is redolent with the smell of the slow roasting pork and my hands smell like garlic and ginger.


The woman and I are watching "Trolls 2" and good god almighty what a movie it is.


If there is anything better than a lazy Sunday at home, cooking and cleaning and eating a mess of good food and watching a stupid movie with the woman you love, I don't know what it could be.

Rappini, "rapa," "rab,"" as some say--I love that bitter green.

Yours for good Sunday and simple pleasure, though those flavors are not simple . . .

That and brussels sprouts are my favs. Bitter and pungent, roasted, sauteed with garlic, bathed in David Chang's fish-sauce, mint, and garlic marinade...

pure heaven.

If i ever make it out there, or you make it out here, we'll put on a big old David Chang throw down, and make Bo Saam that would kill ten people!

And that's final.
