HEY! First time quoting myself! I see that's done a lot here though, so I'm giving it a try.
Gee, I feel like I'm talking to myself... am I?... only if I don't answer... OK, don't answer...


And it looks something like this:

oooh We had sesame noodles here too with my secret ingredient: tahini. I also roasted some chicken with tomatoes and garlic and had it over baby spinach. The spinach got all wilted down and was great in the garlicy tomato juices I poured over the top.

Nice meals Mama and PaC!!

Our dinner:

Extra crispy fried chicken, steamed fresh carrot coins (ground sea salt and ground peppercorns and butter), mashed potatoes (butter, sour cream, fat free ½ & ½, fresh chives, ground sea salt and ground peppercorns), chicken gravy and buttermilk biscuits.

I use about the same amounts of one medium chopped seeded tomato and onion
1 smallish jalapeño pepper, seeded and diced
About 2 TBS of chopped cilantro
and the juice of one lime

It's like cole slaw, mix it up, refrigerate and let it come together. I like it rolled up in a flour tortilla with chili or BBQ, but was looking forward to trying it on steak.

Wow, msm, those biscuits look awesome. One of the best pics of biscuits I've seen. I could go for some biscuits and the gravy.

Me too!

You had me drooling *again* already MsM. Thanks for the idea. I think I'll make some drop biscuits to go with the beef steak stew I'm making today.

Thank you PaC and Z!!

I am thinking of making a batch of biscuits and some eggs to dip in for brunch.
