Looks like you know how to cook London Broil, MsM ......just beautiful, as always and thanks for sharing.

I was inspired by the bump back of the Orzo thread tonight. Here's what I did..
1 cup of orzo cooked with two cups of water, along with a packet of Good Seasons Italian dressing mix, 2 tbs. olive oil, and 2 tbs. white wine vinegar.
It was simmered on the lowest setting of the burner for 15 min. and turned onto a sheet pan to chill in the fridge. The flavor of the orzo was wonderful! When it was chilled I turned it into a bowl and added fresh chopped parsley, basil, and chives along with some marinated artichoke hearts. On each plate I mounded the glorified orzo, topped with chilled cooked shrimp, some grated Italian cheeses and surrounded it with home grown tomato wedges. Then the whole thing was topped with a simple vinaigrette of white balsamic and extra virgin olive oil.
A real winner, if I do say so myself.

Yep, it sure is, dawg! I LOVE sesame chicken. Daughter and I had to be sneaky and get takeout, take it home and eat it while little man was down for his nap - we think he is allergic to shellfish and don't trust the possible cross contamination. My daughter hasn't had Chinese in over 6 months now because of that and she was in heaven. LOL

i know what you mean whisk!there are people who just keep loading their plates time & time again because they can, but most people,myself included,don't eat anymore than they usually would....not an easy one mate,especially the desserts!'cos it's primarily asian cuisine & a lot of indians,pakistani's & chinese etc eat there,the puds are amazing...lots of alphonse mango,coconut & kulfi ice cream dishes...lordy lordy!!
