I really like where I live. I do. The northern side of the Twin Cities. I've built a very good life here (a lot due to Sweetie, who wants to start her own blog - likely to be somewhat less weirdly inflammatory but have more sewing - love you Honey!). I miss Wisconsin, (knew all the good hunting and fishing spots, and when I first moved to Minnesota, I could have hunted and fished but somehow was never able to - pbbffflltt!!), but right now, politisocially, MN is the far and away saner of the two states. And then, once in a while...
I like good food, not quite the foodie of some of my online acquaintances but I ain't no slouch. As a diabetic, I'm not technically allowed to eat, well, anything - although very often the packaging is safe. But, once in a while. I like many asian foods; sushi, tempura; Chinese - Szechuan, Cantonese, and American; pad thai (cannot eat now - rice noodles - shooteth me please); and such. There is a, sort of, Eastern/Minneapolis Fusion, bit of a small niche, restaurant in Minneapolis called Gingerhop. It is supposed to be quite good, reasonably priced, good atmosphere. And I give props for any place selling the 'Kim Jong-il Burger', unfortunately not on the menu so I don't know what it is, but on a scale of One-to-Trolling I give it a Beautiful. And I have meant to, and will get to, eating there at some point.
It is now Lent, and in Minnesota (and Wisconsin, for that matter) it is Friday Fish Fry time (contrary to popular opinion, lutefisk is not high on the Minnesota Fish Fry menu, it is technically not organic, as evidenced by the number of enthusiastic lutefisk eaters who are no longer alive yet suspiciously well preserved. A bit on the gelatinous side perhaps. The lutefisk eaters, that is. And the lutefisk. Um. Where was I?)
What is on the Gingerhop radio ads?
Ok. Satay is pretty simple, grilled spiced meat onnastick. I'm with you here-
Beer-Battered Walleye Satay. With Wasabi Tartar Sauce.
Land Of 10,000 Lakes, everybody!
Does sound good, though, doesn't it?
