Spaghetti in Beef-Pork Ragu with a Trio of Tomatoes
-Oksu, Seongdong, Seoul, Republic of Korea-
with W and DJ, and KSJ
Three forms of tomatoes: canned, sun-dried, and fresh.
Incidentally, our guest was W’s friend who’d invited us to her daughter’s birthday party last year, in the early days of GMTD. As the story goes, we arrived “a bit late” only to discover that most of the food had already been eaten (see 1.018 Buffet Scraps). The friend, just now discovering the blog and learning about the food shortage that night through the related post, appeared mildly yet amusingly offended that I’d given the meal a 1.0 rating but quickly defended her honor by recalling that we had been more than just “a bit late.”
As a follow-up to that post, in the interest of full disclosure, I will note here that additional sandwiches and other finger foods worthy of at least 2.5 were soon served after the main trays had been cleared. Ultimately, we had more than enough to eat and, with an abundance of beer, had a very enjoyable evening.
