As Fall is about to begin and Chinese lantern plants are hanging down in bright orange color in the yard, nineteen members gathered for our fall potluck party. All home cooked food was fabulous and compliments to each other's dish were exchanged. Among those dishes, one dish was particularly reminiscent to us as Japanese, which was mackerel pike cooked in soy sauce and mirin(sugar and sake wine) with ginger. Mackerel pike and fall is almost equivalent to some Japanese. As much as we appreciate the beauty of Fall foliage, we welcome fall by sampling oily mackerel pike in its peak season. It was a lovely time for all. Thank you for all who came and let's hope there will be another gathering just like this one soon.
