The recently revived 2005 Sushi thread made both of us hungry so we're heading out the door to feast on some.

The Thai Peanut Chicken is really good stuff! The snow peas and radishes (both raw) really make this dish pop. It's a great entertaining dish, as everything can be done in advance. Thank you, CG!

It was stir fry chicken (cubed b/s chicken breast marinated with rice wine, salt, pepper, sesame oil then poached in just enough water to cover. I also added some whole almonds at the end so they got a bit soft and easier to chew for hub) and veggies (crinkle cut carrots, celery, bok choy, mushroom caps, fresh garlic, onion and scallions). I used the poaching liquid to make a cornstarch slurry for the sauce. Served with jasmine rice and toasted sesame seeds for garnish. Sounds boring but was very tasty.

I am sorry, but that sounds anything but boring

I have some frozen snap peas; I think I'll simmer those in some chicken stock, maybe with some sliced onion and a Penzeys seasoning, on the side.
We put Penzeys Chinese Five-Spice Powder on the salmon and 4/S Seasoned Salt on the peas. Turned out great

I had my heart set on oven baked BBQ chicken tonight. I have potato salad, cole slaw, Hawaiian sweet rolls, but no BAKED BEANS damnit ! I hate having to go to plan B. Note to self...buy 5 cans of Bush's baked beans.

Ooh. I usually don't care for salmon, but your cakes look really good, S&P. Mind to post the recipe? DH loves salmon.

Looks delicious. Where's the melted cheddar cheese sauce to go on top?

I've been meaning to try and re-create my moms simple salmon loaf. It's not that hard and starts from just a simple can of salmon. Melted Cheddar cheese sauce to pour on top was crucial.
