Happy birthday GQ! You shouldn't be cooking on your birthday though!

I'm still trying to shake the fuzzies out of my head. Freaking weather! I woke with a headache this morning and its currently snowing on us. I haven't decided on the dinner part of things yet. (Still need to determine how many I'm feeding) But I HAVE decided that there will be either saskatoon or rhubarb pie made today for our dessert.

I chuckled a little at taxlady's post. I often experiment but make sure that the dessert is amazing in case the experiment is not to our liking! Everyone loves dessert!

It's kind of a gray chilly day, so I'm thinking Pizza. Not just any pizza. Perhaps arrange some pepperonis at the bottom into a smiley face, some olives for eyes or... here's an idea. I suppose we're not meant to play with our food. who cares.

Whadaya mean? PF and I have both said to play with your food, for a long time!

Cute pizza, Whisk!

I think I'll reheat last night's leftovers for dinner. I'll go to the store in a few hours and see what vegetable catches my eye.

I'll try to get the energy to bake an apple pie, so we know for sure there is something that we'll like.
Have you posted your Chinese cucumber salad recipe? I have a Japanese shrimp-cucumber salad recipe - would love to see if/how they're different.

Also, have you considered making an apple crostata instead of a pie? Much easier and just as tasty, imo. I'm making one today with apples from the farmer's market. Here's one recipe: Apple Crostatas Recipe : Giada De Laurentiis : Recipes : Food Network

Thanks, pac, that looks good. I like the chicken-asparagus stir-fry recipe, too. Since I keep my fresh ginger in a jar of sherry, I have ginger-flavored sherry I can use for additional flavor

I haven't tried making the Chinese cucumber salad. At a quick glance it looks a lot like the one Pac posted. It's here: Spicy Cucumber Salad

I shouldn't have written apple "pie". I'm planning on making Pear Tarte, but substituting apple halves. It tasted good with wedges.

Do you peel the ginger before you put it in the sherry? I keep meaning to do that with some ginger.
