1. I totally agree with you on the mushroom front. Growing up, the only time I ever had mushrooms were canned mushrooms on pizza. Canned mushrooms? Yuck. I’ve learned in the last few years that fresh mushrooms are great, though! I like to make mushroom risotto or marinate in balsamic vinegar before grilling.

    Also, what a fun post! I’ve never paired beer with Asian dishes or had this type of beer. I may need to check it out!

  2. Good thinking doing the mise en place ahead of time – makes cooking much smoother! I agree with you about the cooking in – seems as though I ate out much more in my twenties but now, in my thirties, I enjoy dinner parties with friends at home more.

    Question about the beer: do you think it would be a good pair for sushi?

    You are making me want to check out my local Asian grocery store. ft’s been way too long since I’ve been.

    I also have a random question, I’m heading out to Dallas for work this week and since you always eat at the tastiest places, I was wondering if you had a restaurant recommendation. I’m staying near Galleria Dallas and have some time for lunch before meetings and didm’t know if there was anywhere around there worth trying. Unfortunately I don’t have enough time to drive too far but hoping there might be something cool nearby.

      We are pretty far from the Galleria, so I’m actually not sure of any restaurants in that area – I have heard that Liberty Burger is awesome (but I haven’t been) and it’s around there. You must try to make it to Uptown or Knox-Henderson for restaurants!!
