It's great when combined with codeine in an effervescent tablet. Helped down with a large Bloody Mary.

I had to google mandu, they look within an inch of the $5/bag pot stickers I buy occasionally.
Mandu are Korean dumplings, exactly the same as what gyozo and pot-stickers are. I love them with sesame oil and soy sauce, and of course kimchi.

That's an idea. There's a place up the road from me that does lovely Chinese steamed dumplings.

Nothing wrong with the lentil and mushroom curry, or the water. But, given the discussion on here a couple of days ago, tell her that water is uisge...

The thighs are marinating in olive oil, lemon juice, Italian herb seasoning and oregano leaves, and I have some mushrooms and shallots left and a few tomatoes, and some of the good parm. I'll make Chicken a La Ciccolina.

An American couple are travelling through Wales, on their way they see a sign for a place called Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysilio gogogoch and decide to head there for something to eat. As they make their way there they debate the pronunciation of the town’s name. They stop for lunch and one tourist asks the cashier, “Before we order, could you please settle an argument for us?” The Cashier nods.
“Would you please pronounce where we are for us – very slowly?”
The cashier leans over the counter and says, “Buurrrrgerrrrr Kinnnnggg.”


I'm making burgers.
