Hi Gary and all! Here in spirit.
Gary, don't tease re. sauce, spill the beans!
Avatar 7:21pm hyde:

speaking of Yau Su Rong, there's some stuff at Madrotter today; madrotter-treasure-hunt.blogspot.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Gary:

The secret is to make it with a can of tomatoes, real tomatoes, Italian sausage and fennel seeds. A few other things, too ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Gary:

Avatar 7:24pm Holly in NC:

Ah, the "few other things". Unicorn tears and dragon blood, I assume ;-)
Avatar 7:26pm glenn:

best simple tomato sauce -

peel medium yellow onion

stud with cloves

put in saute pan with good olive oil

cook until soft

open can of SAN MARZANO tomatoes. (very important detail). squish in hands. add to pan. cook until reduced, add salt and pepper to taste. remove onion.

boom. done.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm Gary:

Well, point being that it COULD be anything. Oh, wait ... MUSHROOMS. Those are important. The other things beyond that are garlic, sea salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning
Avatar 7:29pm hyde:

none of that sounds very Chinese New Year, though I guess the noodles are close!
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 7:30pm Doug Schulkind:

That is basically Marcella Hazan's famed simple tomato sauce (though she doesn't use cloves and she does sauté the onion in butter.) In our house, we just call it a Marcella. As in, "who's gonna make the Marcella?!"
Avatar 7:31pm glenn:

oh yes. i forget to mention, add butter add at end of cooking cycle.
Avatar 7:31pm Holly in NC:

Mushroom most excellent when available.
@Glenn - your sauce is very similar to my go-to simple sauce, which is Marcella Hazan's, which omits the cloves and subs butter for olive oil. So good.
Avatar 7:31pm Holly in NC:

Ah jeez Doug, jinx!
Avatar 7:32pm glenn:

try it with the cloves. it makes a good recipe better.
Avatar 7:33pm Holly in NC:

@glenn - I will!
Avatar 7:35pm hyde:

crap, I really need to go into NYC to buy Hong Kong movies before all those places have vanished
Avatar 7:36pm glenn:

also, butter and olive oil cooked together are freakin' awesome.

Great minds sauté alike, Holly dear!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm Gary:

Oh I put wine in the sauce too -- forgot about that. I usually do put butter in as well, but held off tonight for some reason

...The lads I make noise w/ get together Wed.s, so I haven't been to the Bodega lately - but this week's an exception! (Our singer-songwriter is off digging Sturgill Simpson...)
- Good week to be here ! : I don't have Lunar New Year together @ all - so really appreciate your help in this...I think I've had enuff of dear Horsie trampling my Bunny butt...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm Gary:

RevRab! Happy to see you tonight!
  7:45pm doca:

@Gary: It's the same as the movie, but the manga has three times more story than the movie. The movie is almost only the beginning and the end of the story, it seems.
  7:45pm doca:

And this comment board is making me hungry.

Avatar 7:48pm Holly in NC:

I put wine in almost everything (hic). I'VE BEEN ICED IN FOR 3 DAYS AND WINE IS RUNNING PERILOUSLY LOW.

Not complaining though. Thankful to be stuck in a house with power, heat & food. And 5 bottles of rum, if I get desperate ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm Gary:

Whoa, really? Like iced-over streets?
Avatar 7:49pm hyde:

@Holly I will happily trade your ice for the eight and a half foot tall snow drift in my yard in Massachusetts!
Avatar 7:53pm ndbob:

just cold here - 6 right now
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 7:54pm Doug Schulkind:

Supposed to reach -11°F here Thursday night. Schools are already closed tomorrow. No worries. Young Lincoln is on a brief vacay in L.A.!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Gary:

Damn. I remember waiting for a bus in Minneapolis when it was -14° out and thinking "Don't these people care about QUALITY OF LIFE?!?"
Avatar 7:56pm ndbob:

and down to minus 7 tonight
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm listener james from westwood:

Holly, we'll send a helicopter to lower some vino in through the chimney.
Avatar 7:56pm ndbob:

I do remember minus 33 in North Dakota once
Avatar 7:59pm ndbob:

excellent first hour Gary - catch the rest on the archive
Avatar 8:00pm Holly in NC:

@Gary - yes. Rural Chapel Hill, long icy driveway, long hilly icy private road leading to icy rural road, the latter of which was finally semi-cleared today. I just finished the damn driveway ~4 pm today, at which point it promptly started snowing. Schools cancelled again tomorrow. We're only going down to 11F tonight, but 0F tomorrow. Balmy compared to @ndbob & @Doug! Wind chill is killer though

@hyde - No, that's OK, I couldn't possibly -wouldn't want to deprive a man of his drift! Is it at least sleddable?

@ljfw - Oh, that you could :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01pm Gary:

Night, Bob!
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 8:03pm Doug Schulkind:

OK, this is more than vaguely Die Antwoordish.
Avatar 8:03pm hyde:

@Holly nope, not sleddable. tree in the way!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm listener james from westwood:

I do actually know a guy with combat-honed chopper skills. We could form a delivery business.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:05pm Gary:

Steve! Howdy!
Avatar 8:07pm Holly in NC:

But that video doesn't scare me. Die Antwoord videos terrify me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:07pm Gary:

It's definitely not the same kind of crazy as Die Antwoord.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm listener james from westwood:

Enjoying myself greatly thus far, Gary!
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 8:30pm Doug Schulkind:

@Holly in NC
Yes, absolutely. Die Antwoord videos are rabid.

I kept looking for my nephew, Reuben, in that Hitchhiker video. He has been living/studying in China the past two years and has become a minor skateboard celebrity. This skate shop/company is using him as the posterboy for their products. Strange but true.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm Gary:

Glad to hear it, James!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35pm Gary:

Whoa, that's amazing, Doug!
