Had a doctor's appointment this morning, which took a small chunk out of the day. Knowing that, I took a meatloaf out of the freezer. We had that, steamed rice and Italian green beans. No Chinese New Year food for us...unless you count the rice.

No Chinese here tonight, either. We had leftover pork chile verde over rice with lime juice and crispy tortilla strips.

So I made Fried Saimin with loads of veggies,
shredded Carrots & Cabbage, Mung Bean Sprouts,
Sweet White Onion & Green Onions, hunks of
Char Siu (Chinese BBQ Pork)
... so that's the Chinese on our plate,
along with Japanese Teriyaki b/s Chicken Thighs
and then Korean, my Quick Cucumber Kim Chee...


for dessert, I made a double batch of
Macadamia Nut Shortbread Cookies,
dripped in Dark Chocolate...
one batch was mailed to my Mother for
Valentines Day, and the rest stay here!
(I'll post this on the dessert thread )

Got the pineapple fried rice made. Yay! Unfortunately, it wasn't anywhere near as good as I remember the one from our fave Thai place. Himself also decided he wasn't a fan of the pineapple in it after all. Guess I'll just order when we go out. Meanwhile, I might end up doing another fried rice soon.

No Chinese here either. We went Cuban with Ropa Vieja, black beans and rice, We used some of the liquid the beef was first cooked in for the rice.

If you're gonna make a Key Lime pie, you have to use real Key Limes!

Great looking plates people!! Yummmmm

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.
