I spent the last two days in Reno, NV at a Vegetation and Fuels Management Conference. My brain has been well stimulated, but my butt has gone numb from sitting too much. Tonight, my coworkers and I stopped and picked up Chinese takeout. I had kung pao beef, spicy orange chicken, veggie stir-fry, and pork chow mein.

Tonight was special since my daughter's Korea friend's mom brought us some pork filled pot stickers with a delicious dipping sauce and some Korean apple pie. Aside from that I cooked some Shake-N-Bake chicken, rice and sweet peas.

On another post about strange food combinations, I mentioned that my eldest daughter asked me to make a pizza with bacon, avocado and feta cheese. It didn't sound very appealing....but, I did it. As a back-up, I made two other pizzas - one plain(ish) with just tomato sauce and mozarella and a bit of fresh garlic, and the other also with the tomato and mozarella, but also loaded with mushrooms, fresh garlic, onion and little grape tomatoes cut in half. Well, they all came out okay, but, surprisingly enough, that bacon/avo/feta one was really nice (also had the tomato and mozarella cheese on it). I cooked the bacon to a crisp first, then my daughter cut it into strips instead of crumbling it as I would have, and placed it attractively over the pizza, which already had the tomato sauce & mozarella chees on it. My Italian friends (we live in New Joisy, after all) are Apalled, but I suggested to them to not think of it as pizza anymore, maybe just a really unusual sandwich. Ag, anyway, it was fun.
