Looks good, Randall! But help the foreigners a bit: how much is (3-4') or (2-3')?

Just passing on my recipe for chive blossoms--they're blooming now. I'll use my cast iron skillet to cook asparagus with sesame seeds (3-4'), toss in chive blossoms (2-3'), and add soy sauce. With quinoa (or rice), it's delicious. Cooking time depends on how crunchy you like asparagus. I had a sweet potato on the side, plus a green salad and fruit (fresh strawberries from my garden!).   Except for the soy sauce and quinoa, everything came directly from the garden.

All your food looks great, Daniel.  Tasty eating!  

I don't believe I've had Korean food either.  Yes, to Thai, Japanese, Vietnamese, and Chinese, though.  I'll have to continue my culinary journey to some new spots.

Don't know if I've ever had Korean food. Looks worth a try.

I'm using a nicely designed set of dishes that I bought at a resale for under $10. Once I break a few of them I'll go back and buy more. I seldom have complete sets but I have what I want.

My late mother had a complete set of fancy looking dinnerware that she kept locked away in a china closet. I don't want it. This set was more for appearance than for eating. Is it valuable? I have no idea and could not care less.

Daniel - these are the dishes we were talking about the other day at coffee. Back in the day practically every little ol' granny in the Midwest had a set. Hull Pottery and McCoy made them, but there were several other brands a well.

I'm not at all familiar with the newer Corelle dishes.  The iris pattern is really pretty.  And they have the added bonus that irises are one of my favorite flowers.  My mother's garden always had irises, so they bring back lots of childhood memories of summer days in our backyard.

"Food porn". An apt description Carl.  Daniel always makes my mouth water.  Wish I loved cooking as much as he.

Daniel, that is some serious food porn you posted.  Looks fantastic.  

BTW, I have the same plate/patterned dishes as shown in the second photo.   They're still in the family after my parents purchased the set new in the 1970s.  I ate off them when I was a kid.  Now after a long hiatus I'm using them again after acquiring them from my parents earlier this year.  Several years ago my niece used them while she lived in Japan while stationed there in the Navy.  They have traveled around the world and have held up strong for 45 plus years!

Daniel, the pie looks delicious, runny or not. I always have that problem. And no, I don't have a wood stove. A wood furnace, yes, which I sometimes put things on or in.

As for Italian food, let me put it this way: It was sometimes good, sometimes inedible. Too many pasta dishes--heavy in the tummy, hard on the digestive system--constantly "bloated". Few salads. I prefer American and Greek. The wine, cheeses, and breads were great, however!  I gained 5 lbs!
