peanut butter monkey

(no subject)

Had a good quiet Halloween gathering yesterday. Arturo (LJ-less), karenbynight, princeofwands and mitrian made it to our place for good food and Young Frankenstein on DVD (loaned to us by girlpurple).

I keep trying to recreate Pork Calypso, a pork-and-brown-sugar dish that no longer exists at a restaurant in another state. Yesterday is definitely the best attempt at it so far, and is pretty good. In fact, another couple of changes and I think I'll like mine better than theirs, so I can stop trying to recreate it :-)
