Dinner with the relatives this weekend. Not really potluck, but, local style, bring food (no empty hands). 🙂

A preview.

Because, I don’t have access to an imu (Hawaiian earthen fire pit).

Frozen Pork Butt

Frozen Pork Butt

Sorry, picture looks more like something out of CSI or Dexter instead of a kitchen, my bad.

Along with the magic box (see yesterday’s post), these ingredients have the potential of making something awesome, if I don’t overthink and mess it up.

Stay tuned. We’ll all find out soon enough.

Enjoy. Eat well.

One of the trips to China, we brought back dried lemon slices. I’ve never saw anything like that before. I’ve seen dried and salted whole lemons, and dried lemon peel, but not dried lemon slices.

Since I already figured out how to do dried orange peel (see here), I thought I’d attempt the dried lemon slices.

Washed and dried a lemon, sliced into about 1/4 inch slices, and threw them into a warm oven.

Dried Lemon Slices

The slices from China is on the left, I did the slices on the right. Kind of looked similar. The Cat said my batch had a slight smoky taste (but still usable). Maybe the oven was a little to hot.

Next time, a lower temperature on the oven.

Wishing everyone a happy turkey day tomorrow.

Enjoy. Eat well.
