Julianne and I decided to stay in tonight for a quiet dinner after dealing with a student who has “Little Empress Syndrome.” Let’s just say the drama-queen-shenanigans-lies-and-little-temper-tantrum-nonsense we had to deal with had us in a mood where we wouldn’t be good company for the weekly Thursday night dinner with our colleagues.
Anyways, we went to Metro (it’s like COSTCO) and picked up some food. Julianne has been wanting to pick up some Korean soy bean paste sauce and pork to do a Korean style BBQ on our George Foreman Grill. Unfortunately we couldn’t find any strips of pork in a pack so we ended up going with lamb.
We got home and set up our grill, and washed the romaine lettuce. The grill heated up fast and I began trying to unfold and unwrap the rolls of lamb meat–and suddenly remembered how fast the meat cooks when it’s sliced so thinly!
We regrouped and took a few minutes to unroll all the meat and then began barbecuing it.
If you do this Korean BBQ style you pick up a piece of lettuce, put a piece of meat on it, then some sauce, and . . . yum.
Sitting in the peace and quiet of our air-conditioned apartment with good food and a sitcom playing on my laptop–definitely a nice night in.
Now if only there was as simple a solution to neutralizing our little empress aka calm-nemesis . . .
