Sukiyaki and a Japanese language lesson

In Japanese, "yaki" means "stir fry", so if you are looking for a stir fry recipe, look for "yaki", as in Yakitori, Teriyaki, Sukiyaki, negimayaki, etc.  My wife and I were introduced to sukiyaki in a small ryokan in Kyoto, Japan in the early '70s.  The innkeeper dressed up in her best kimono to serve us.  I remember that as a magical time.  In those days, the Japanese would stare at you on the street, because they were not used to seeing Westerners.  Perhaps, we were the first they had ever seen.

Anyway, it is funny how an aroma or taste can bring your mind back to an event in the past, even the distant past.

Here is my sukiyaki cook today.

First, the raws.  Pasquali will love all of the veggies in this dish.

Stir frying.  It's really an easy stir fry.

Plated.  Our living room coffee table is low to the ground, reminiscent of eating in Japan.

In case anyone would want to try it, here is my recipe.  I got the original off the internet somewhere, but I've tweaked it enough to claim it for myself.

    As always a great meal and presentation!
    I Remember  when I was in SE Asia '67-''71 spent a few trips to Tokyo and the food was excellent.  Those days we would point to the plastic food in front of the restaurant and it would appear in a hot edible form.

    Your new middle name is "show off".

    BTW, I drove to Florida and back this weekend. There is a road in Belton, TX called "G Wilson" road. You know anything about that?
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    Yeah, they named it after me right after I won the Nobel Prize for my research in Medical Quantum Physics.  I rarely mention it because I don't like to show off.    

    They misspelled my name, though.  I have two "L"s in my last name.  I had my executive assistant write them a letter.  It will be corrected soon.
