I'm assembling the ingredients for tonight's dinner.
Lotus root, carrot and sweet corn. Ah, this is easy. Cut up the pieces and boil in a pot of water, together with dried cuttlefish, dried oysters, red dates, wolf berries and some meat.
Fresh button mushroom and Korean bunashimeji are perishable, so we'll have to eat them today. I'll pan fry with olive oil, garlic, a dollop of butter and some white wine.
Stir-fried vegetables are a must at the dinner table. I wish these baby kale were from my own backyard. They're imported from Hong Kong.
And this cauliflower is already past its prime. I'll cook it Indian style, together with onion, potatoes and lots of spices.
Finally, fish is SK's favourite. I'll panfry some flounder.
