Mori Mori lives on in Sanbiki

A while back I lamented the closing of the Mori Mori grocery store.  Luckily for everyone, I have discovered that Sanbiki revamped the inside of their store to continue selling some grocery products and most importantly their take out prepared meals and sushi.

It is not nearly as big as the former store, but you can get your rice and noodles and sauces and tea when you pick up your yam tempura and spicy chicken and rice.  Or is that just me?

Check it out you guys.  Support local business in the 'Loops.

Country Style Pork Ribs

I'd bought some assorted pork cuts from the University meat store in the Spring, and there were still a few odds and ends packages in the freezer that I wasn't sure what to do with.  One was country style pork ribs which I have never cooked before.  
I followed the first recipe that came up in my google search, and it was easy and delicious.

The only flaw was my own - I took them out of the oven and set them aside so I could turn up the heat and get the potatoes cooked faster, and then put them back in to reheat before serving.  They were starting to dry out by that time.  I should have just left them out covered with foil.

But should I get my hands on some country style ribs again this will be the recipe I choose.

Snapshot - savory breakfasts are the best

Right here we've got a whole lot of deliciousness going on - a toasted bagel with roasted pepper, feta cheese and hot sauce. Serious yum.

Book Club - A River Runs Through It by Norman MacLean

'The backbone of a mountain would not break, so the mountain compresses the already powerful river into sound and spray before letting it pass.'

'If you think that what I am about to tell you next is a contradiction to this, then you will have to realize that in Montana drinking beer does not count as drinking.'

'How can a question be answered that asks a lifetime of questions?'

'I am haunted by waters.'

Another visit to Gasthaus

We enjoyed our first visit to The Gasthaus restaurant so much that when we were in the area
 again in the Spring, we had to go back.

The Girl and I shared the Black Forest Spaetzle.  So good.  Crunchy onions!!!!

The Mister had a goulash stew that was out of this world.  He always gets the best stuff and I am always jealous.

The Grandmother got the biggest seafood caesar salad I'd ever seen.
