I went a little International today. Asian chicken soup and Greek-style wrapped sandwich. I should have used only one bundle of rice noodles in the soup - it turned out to be more of a "stewp".

i'm trying to get the energy up to make dinner. i feel beat up today. after a rough night at work last night, i was woken up about every hour or so by my neighbours (macedonian music is horrific, and macedonian women in conversation sound like battling geese).

i'm thinking of making a hot open turkey, or maybe beaner wieners.

Two frozen squashed hamburger patties that I partially thawed and made a quasi McDonalds quarter pounder into. Oven french fries . Not bad actually.
Beer drinking. Saturday night beer drinking.

Tomorrow is Sunday...I know...I know

Yummm....omelettes, fajitas, guacamole....(!) soups, hamburgers...fried rice....if I weren't so full I'd be craving everything.

Dawg, it seems like you always end up with just a teaspoon or two of the last of the goodies. It's time to start hiding stuff.

GG reminded me I have 2 almost ripe avocados and a lime, I need to make guacamole manana.

bucky, I don't know what Macedonian music is, but any loud music while I'm trying to sleep would be annoying.

We had a couple of duck breasts in the freezer that a hunting friend had given us last year. So I pulled the package out to thaw yesterday and opened it up. Holy cow!! I don't know what kind of ducks these were, but each breast weighed around a pound and a half. Can you say "buxom?"

They were so large, we invited a couple of friends over to share in the bounty. I pan cooked them slowly to render off the fat, and then finished them in the oven. I also made a raspberry and red wine reduction sauce. For sides, we had brussells sprouts with bacon, and wild rice pilaf.

yeah, but i can't complain. it's during the day. macedonia sits right at the bottom of the old yugoslavia: between old europe, greece, and has turkish influences.
not exactly dolcet tones nor mellow muzak.

anyway, i ended up wolfing down a bag o' salad with poppyseed dressing, and making hot open turkey with doctored up stove top stuffing (pear, cashew, and onion).

I'll bet they shrank a lot in the pan.
