A plethora of fun things today....my favorite being the Cha Sui Bao aka fluffy steamed bread buns stuffed with Cantonese Barbecue Pork. I find myself having the same weakness as Po [the Panda] from DreamWorks Animation's Kung Fu Panda.
"Snatch this gigantic bowl of pork boas from my hand, Grasshoppa.."
I make this exact face when I am near baos.
We also made Vietnamese Pancakes, Handmade Egg Noodles with Shrimp and Chiles, Dukbokki (Spicy Korean Rice Cake Soup), Lomi Lomi Salmon (Hawaiian "massaged" salted salmon) and Har Gau (Chinese Shrimp Dumplings).
Try using this Cantonese Barbecue Pork Marinade next time you cook up some Pork Shoulder (or loin, or butt, etc) and make all your friends super jealy and envious of your skills.
