Wife and I split out for a concert in MS, went to the Pearl River Casino Resort to see Great White and Skid Row.
A night away from home without the kids, a night for dinner, a concert and hotel stay.
Now the great thing about this concert is that my wife is friends with Mitch Malloy, Great White's new lead singer, and he fixed us up with All Access Passes.
Backstage smackstage, we were front-n-center for Great White and then went upstairs to one of the skyboxes to watch Skid Row.
What a way to watch a concert, big cushy loungers to relax in, hor d'oeuvres and free drinks served by wait staff.



Now here is the real story,
we went to a nice restaurant for dinner expecting something really good for the money only to be disappointed.
This is all too common when one has their own passion for food and cooking.
So I came home today hungry for some food that had real depth of flavor.
I figured some Asian fare with a big kick would do the trick.

Add sauce to just below skin, add garlic, ginger, chile and star anise to sauce
Lower heat to 375°, return to oven and bake for 2.5 hours

Frozen spring rolls from the local Asian Market, really tasty stuff.
I can't read the brand name much less pronounce it.

Oh man. I just got all hungry again. As usual. it looks delicious.

With your awesome cooking skills, I would love to see you try Singapore Rice Noodles. I discovered it 2 years ago while working Hurricane Matthew in Jacksonville. It is my favorite asian dish. I make it fairly regularly.

Seriously, I have printed off a pile of your recipes and use them often. Keep em comin!
