Char Siu Fun, Awesome Flop-some, and Travertine

Cooking adventures filled our previous week, starting with some Chinese cooking. Char Siu meat (we used both beef and pork...) and and properly crispy Chinese Eggplant. While we had the oil heated and plenty of leftover flour, we decided to try and make an Awesome Blossom... Will note to self to try again in the future... Perhaps hotter oil? Deeper frying vessel?

I also bought an unfinished travertine stone tile to use as a pizza stone. What better chance to try Alton Brown's pizza dough recipe?
