    PS ... last nite a quick and easy meal, my homemade perogies with lotsa fried onion and sour cream ... and oh yeah don't forget the bacon!

    too bad it was the last dozen I have in the house, won't be making till fall now ... too hot ... mom and I usually do about 40 doz. in one day ...
    Yum, I haven't made Egg Foo Yung in a while. What I usually do since I can't use a whole can of bean sprouts in one recipe - earlier in a week I will make chop suey, then use the rest of the bean sprouts in Egg Foo Yung on Friday (since it's a good meatless meal for us).

    And, oh, I know that feeling of using the last of the pyrohy you have frozen! Oh, well, you can always make a small batch along the way before the big batch making in the fall. My recipe makes five dozen, just enough for one meal.

    Tonight we are having leftovers from yesterday, supplemented by M&M chicken wings, with fruit pizza for dessert.

    Oh the Egg Fu Young was a big hit with both of us.
    I loved Rachael's recipe for the sauce, although in this hick city I live just outside of didn't have any Tarmaria (sp?) or any decent looking bok choy .... I improvised.
    I do regret using soya sauce (without less salt) ... dh and I have cut way down on salt and he had mistakenly brought the regular (oh salty! lol)
    We used shrimp, bean sprouts, celery, red pepper, vidalia onion in the egg mix. We both agreed we like more veggie ... the shrimp were a good choice. I found them in the bottom of the freezer (vac packed) added just a few ... um good! I don't usually put meat in my egg fu yung although Rachael does)

    It was a fine meal, I'll do again!

    Grilled veggies from last night's bbq pizza and soba noodles with hot sauce and maybe some Seitan if I get around to making it. It's a tad too hot to have a burner on for an hour.

    I don't know why Im being so nice to dh but ... I made shepherd's pie for him tonite, another of his favs!
    I hate peas, so ... I used fresh parsnip, carrots, onions, lean grd, and topped with the last of my potatoes. I made extra gravy the other night and hide it (yup poor man is a gravy fanatic! So it'll be easy supper tonight.
    I micro all the veggies and riced the potato so house stayed cool. Just quick fry of lean grd beef.
    I'll pop it into the toaster oven for a short time tonight just to warm and toast the potatoes!


    Now what would I really like to supper on the weekend ???????

    Isn't it funny how if we (the cook) don't like something we'll remove it from a recipe, but if someone else doesn't like it TOO BAD! I hate mushrooms so they are never in the house, DH has to order them at a restaurant if he wants them. DH is a gravy fanatic too, and I hide it too - usually I put it in a ziploc bag in the freezer and call it "chicken stock" he can't tell the diff, and it save me time when I need some Sneeky, Sneeky!

    Went to a Indian Restaraunt downtown and it was yummy!

    I had, Onion Bhaji, Chana Masal, Butter Chicken, Basmati Rice, and Naan Bread.

    Oh my stomach hurts so bad now, I haven't ate that much in a LONG time.

    It was my mother in law's "birthday / chemo is almost over " dinner so it was her choice. Steaks on the barbie for the meat eaters (everyone but me), steamed broccoli, corn on the cob, and roast potatoes on the bbq. Chocolate cake with buttercream and ice cream for afters. And then a nap :D

    Baked pork loin chops; roasted potatoes, carrots and onions; cole slaw; fresh buns.
    OY, I could have eaten the whole roaster of the veggies, they were so nicely carmelized!!! I prepped the veggies, and my son did the seasoning under my direction (he's eager to learn!) - so he was so proud the amounts he used turned out so well! (oil, salt, pepper, garlic, dill).
