Immediately after our return from Portugal, we went to pick Poirot up (he was at his friend, Laifu's house), then invited our friend and his wife for dinner. They are our neighbors who took care of our house during our absence. When we were in Portugal, Boston had a big snow storm, and he kindly shoveled our driveway and sidewalk for us. In Boston (and the surrounding area), if residents do not shovel out their sideways within 6 hours after snowfall stops, a fine may be charged (by law). In addition, property owners can be held libel for injuries due to snow and ice (so, you may get sued if someone falls down in front of your house!!).
|本当はもっといいレストランに行きたかったのですが、私たちが疲れていたし、大晦日はいいレストランは予約で満席なので、とりあえず家の近所の瑞福酒家 (Fuloon) へ行くことにしました。|
I wanted to go to a better restaurant, but we were very tired and on the NYE, no tables would be available without reservations. So we decided to go to Fuloon near our house.
Steamed pork shoulder. The meat was very tender.
Steamed whole fish with ginger and scallion.
