Chef John's Shaved Asparagus Salad
Wow! I was not sure about this dish at first but after watching the video I thought I would give it a try. I am really glad I did. Hubby loved it, told me don't lose this recipe. I would never have thought to fry pastrami.It turned into delicious,crispy little bits that tasted amazing with the tangy dressing. Shaving the asparagus was a bit difficult. I don't have a V-shaped peeler and kept hitting my knuckles on the counter and I couldn't get the last strips thin enough. I finally held the asparagus close to the edge of the counter and solved the problem. It was definitely worth the effort. Thanks for another great recipe Chef John.

Thai Chicken Cabbage Soup
I made this for a Wednesday meal at church and it received rave reviews. I did make some changes. I added fish sauce, ginger, lemon grass and sesame oil as suggested by other reviewers. I bought a cold roasted chicken(lemon herb flavor) from grocery store, pulled off meat and made the stock with the bones. Since it was going to be kept warm over a long period of time I didn't use the noodles. They would have soaked up all the broth. Everyone said it tasted like soup from the Chinese restaurant. I will definitely make this soup again.

Mom's Gourmet Grilled Cheese Sandwich
This was the best grilled cheese sandwich I have ever had! I used focaccia bread from our local bakery, smoked gouda and white American cheese. I mixed the butter and grated parmesan as suggested in other reviews. We had these sandwiches with spicy tomato soup and my family couldn't get enough. I had to make more sandwiches for everyone. I will never make plain grilled cheese again. Thanks for the great recipe.
