Painted Stave on Friday- Spicy Asian Glaze- January 20th 2019 Update

Friends for Jeff Spiegelman,

Weird weather? Yeah.

-On Tuesday is the Delaware Electric Co-op legislative lunch. I have several constituents who are heavily involved in the company.

-Wednesday is a lunch and legislative update from the Greater Kent Committee. Then, Wednesday evening is a Chicken and Dumplings Dinner at the Townsend Fire Hall benefiting the Ladies Auxiliary. I usually do take-out. I recommend getting there early as they usually sell out fast. Why? Because its gooooooood.

-Come join us for our next meeting with constituents at Painted Stave on Commerce Street in Smyrna from 5 p.m.-6:30 p.m. this Friday evening.

-Happy 10 year anniversary of my lovely wife’s 26th birthday this weekend. (read that again. It’s not our anniversary. I’m trying not to tell you she is 36!!!!) Time flies when you are having fun with your soul-mate and mother of your kids and greatest fan and harshest critic and, and, and….

-We have completed the schedule for the next round of meetings with constituents. Please stop by one or all and let me know what is on your mind.

I was looking for a recipe for spicy Asian brussels sprouts and found an interesting one online. The recipe didn’t work out as well as I would have hoped but the glaze, with some modification, was terrific. Here is what I did for the glaze which goes very well with just about anything you put it on.

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 tablespoon Worcester sauce

2 tablespoons honey

Juice from half a lemon

1 garlic clove, minced

1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce (or, you know, more. A lot more)

Pinch of black pepper

Fresh cilantro, chopped

Combine all ingredients except the cilantro in a non-stick small pot. Bring to a boil on medium heat uncovered . Stir occasionally and boil until it reduces to the consistency of thin honey, about 5-10 minutes. It will thicken as it cools. Use the cilantro as a garnish on whatever you glaze with the stuff.


— Thanks.
