We had ricotta-spinach ravioli with tomato sauce and green beans.

Kayelle cooked the lamb chops with our new pan on the side burner of the BBQ. They were great. I told her it was sort of like camping but with indoor plumbing

Stir fried pork with garlic sprouts, carrots, onions, ginger, and green onions. I was really surprised that the garlic sprouts didn't taste more "garlicky." Also, if we ever get them again, I am steaming them for a few minutes prior to going into the stir fry. I knew while cutting them that they were going to take longer to cook than what the recipe called for so I put them in sooner, basically cooking them for twice as long as recipe called for, and they were still way too crunchy. I'm all for crisp tender veges but the sprouts weren't anywhere close to that. The noodles are glass/cellophane noodles.

The pork got the quick "velveting" treatment in the recipe some of you guys were talking about not long ago. It came out really good. Actually recipe was really good other than the sprouts not being cooked enough.

Hmnn I have pretty much all the ingredients for that, would share the recipe? I can make up the pasta side of a ravioli, still would love some tips, but tell me if you do something interesting with fillings?

Heh. This was one of our "emergency" dinners The ravioli was store-bought and boiled from frozen, the sauce was from a jar and doctored with Penzeys Fox Point seasoning, and the green beans were steamed from frozen and sprinkled with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper. Sorry, no secrets to share

Peneys had a fox? I thought they were all much ado about nothing.

I adore emergency dinners, so much of ours are all barley and stock.

I can boil barley and cal it a meal.
