6月14日夜マイミクＪＥさん宅で『5月・6月ポットラック誕生会』があり、ちらし寿司を作った。鰻、スモークサーモン、海老、きゅうり、レモンの輪切りを玄米のすし飯にのせたもの。好き嫌いを考え、半分に鰻、もう半分側にスモークサーモンをのせ、中央とあちこちに海老をあしらった。優柔不断な『鰻サーモン海老玄米ちらし寿司』。 Birthday Potluck Party: On 6/14/09 evening, there was a "May & June Birthday Potluck Party" at my friend JE's house. I made a Chirashi Sushi. I placed Smoked Salmon on a half portion, Sea Eel on the other half , and garnished with cooked Shrimps in the middle and all around with sliced Cucumbers and lemmon on top of Brown Rice Sushi Rice, considering some people might not like Smoked Salmon or Sea Eal. So, it became "Sea Eel, Smoked Salmon, and Shrimp Brown Chirashi Sushi with Brown Rice." ポットラックは1人1人がいろいろな食べ物を持ち寄るので楽しい。他にはホームメード・ハマス（中東のディップ）と野菜、揚げたて手作りコロッケ、焼きたて手作り餃子、トマトと紫玉ねぎのサラダ、カブの炒め物、グラン・マサラ・カレー、鮭のグリル、杏仁豆腐、クリーム・チーズケーキ、J.J.ベーカリーのフルーツ・ショートケーキなど、いろいろあった。 Potluck is fun. Each person brings a different dish. There were Homemade Hummus (Middle Eastern bean dip) with Vegetable, Homemade Croquets, Homemade Gyoza Dumplings, Tomato and Red Onion Salad, Sauteed Radish, Grand Masala Curry and Rice, Almond Tofu, Creme Cheesecake, Fruit Shortcake from J.J.Bakery, etc.
犬のラッキーは、普段はＪＥさんの娘さんが床に落としてしまった残飯をせっせと食べる掃除役だけれど、この晩は違った！美味しい食べ物がたくさんあるため、残飯には見向きもしない。 Lucky, the dog, usually eats and cleans up whatever the food my friend JE's daughter dropped on the floor. It was different that night! He did not care about those, because there were so many good foods available.
About 18 to 20 people gathered at the party. There were few people drinking Wine, Vodka, and Beer. The rest of them were drinking Tea or Water. There were many people I greeted "Nice to meet you." It was fun. I was amazed at how high they could be without any alcohol. Thanks JE for being a wonderful hostess, a Master N for cooking delicious foods on site, and everyone for the fun and delicious evening.
