I am so glad I am feeling up to cooking again!

Our border is gone for the weekend and I picked up some really nice cod fillets. I am not sure what I am going to do with them yet (no fish and chips, for sure), or what will go with them, but I am having fun trying to figure it out!

I don't know...
I have a job interview this afternoon and have to take lily to the vet this morning.
It's going to be a stressful kind of day. So, I think it'll be comfort food for sure.
I'll go to the store while I'm out. Pancakes sound good right now.

it's the boy and i again tonight.

i've gotta use up some ingredients, so i'm thinking of making a stir fry with cubes of beef tenderloin, shanghai bok choy, scallions, red onions, carrots, celery, water chestnuts and mung bean sprouts. it should be colorful, if not tasty.

i'm not sure what type of sauce to make with it. maybe soy sauce, ginger, garlic, a little chicken stock, and butter. thickened with corn starch.
any suggestions on the sauce from you wok experts out there?

if i don't have time for all of the prep, i'll leave the tenderloins as steaks and grill them, along with some sweet italian sausage and some red onions.

That sounds really good. I'd leave out the butter and add 1 tbsp. each dry sherry and oyster sauce, then drizzle with toasted sesame oil.

I think we'll have grilled burgers, fries and salad tonight.

i don't have the oil, but i do have sesame seeds. no oyster sauce or sherry, either. thanks uncle bob and gg.

i do have jars of hoisin and lemongrass sauces, but i'm trying to make this from scratch.

i'll definitely add the seeds.

Hoisin is often an ingredient in sauces - you could add a tsp. or so of that.
