Got a call from one of our dearest friend's newlywed son and wife who were visiting Los Angeles. They planned to come by today for a short visit. There are no short visits when you come by our house. G called them and said I was going to prepare dinner and they were ok with it.
Dinner turned into a Shabu Shabu style meal with an added table top grill. Fresh vegetables (spinach, zucchini, raddish, sugar snap peas) with thinly sliced pork, beef and chicken plus marinated beef and chicken with enoki mushrooms and to drink- lemongrass tea.
