Romaine, Cauliflower, and Artichoke Hearts in Vinaigrette


by me

at home

-Oksu, Seongdong, Seoul, Republic of Korea-

with W and DJ, Sister-in-Law, PY’s family

Dr. Phil is a nephrologist who’s never seen a kidney since gross anatomy during his 1st year of medical school.  It had come up in casual conversation during our previous meeting in March (see 3.061 Haemul Ssamjang), as I was inquiring as to how often an internist got inside his patients to see the actual goods up close.  According to him, never.  When everyone at the table expressed their somewhat stunned disbelief, he even got a bit huffy about it: “Why would I need to see the actual kidney?!?!  The blood tests tell me everything I need to know.”

Anyway, he’s back in town, so I invited him and his family over for dinner at home this time, along with my wife’s brother’s wife, who happens to be best friends with Phil’s wife.
