speaking of Yau Su Rong, there's some stuff at Madrotter today; madrotter-treasure-hunt.blogspot.com...
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 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 Wed. 2/18/15 7:23pm Gary:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/18/15 7:24pm Holly in NC:

Ah, the "few other things". Unicorn tears and dragon blood, I assume ;-)
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 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 Wed. 2/18/15 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    Wed. 2/18/15 7:29pm hyde:

none of that sounds very Chinese New Year, though I guess the noodles are close!
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 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 Wed. 2/18/15 7:31pm glenn:

oh yes. i forget to mention, add butter add at end of cooking cycle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/18/15 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 Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/18/15 7:31pm Holly in NC:

Ah jeez Doug, jinx!
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 7:32pm glenn:

try it with the cloves. it makes a good recipe better.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/18/15 7:33pm Holly in NC:

@glenn - I will!
Avatar    Wed. 2/18/15 7:35pm hyde:

crap, I really need to go into NYC to buy Hong Kong movies before all those places have vanished
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 7:36pm glenn:

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

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

RevRab! Happy to see you tonight!
  Wed. 2/18/15 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.

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 Wed. 2/18/15 7:49pm Gary:

Whoa, really? Like iced-over streets?

@Holly I will happily trade your ice for the eight and a half foot tall snow drift in my yard in Massachusetts!

just cold here - 6 right now

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 Wed. 2/18/15 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 Wed. 2/18/15 7:56pm ndbob:

and down to minus 7 tonight
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/18/15 7:56pm listener james from westwood:

Holly, we'll send a helicopter to lower some vino in through the chimney.

I do remember minus 33 in North Dakota once
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 7:59pm ndbob:

excellent first hour Gary - catch the rest on the archive
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/18/15 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 Wed. 2/18/15 8:01pm Gary:

Night, Bob!
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 8:03pm Doug Schulkind:

OK, this is more than vaguely Die Antwoordish.
Avatar    Wed. 2/18/15 8:03pm hyde:

@Holly nope, not sleddable. tree in the way!

But that video doesn't scare me. Die Antwoord videos terrify me.
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 8:07pm Gary:

It's definitely not the same kind of crazy as Die Antwoord.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/18/15 8:30pm listener james from westwood:

Enjoying myself greatly thus far, Gary!
Avatar Wed. 2/18/15 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.
