Yeah, they freeze just fine. I thaw before reheating and usually nuke them on a med/high setting to reheat.

I ate 6 one night. The next morning I thought I was going to die!!

I am having Taco's tonight.

UB Thank you. It was quite nice even if I did forget to add the green onion and sesame seeds.

My Taco spaghetti turned into egg noodles with multi-cheese sauce and the taco/spaghetti sauce wasn't quite the way I want it, so I'll work on that later, and just have some egg noodles and add more cheeses. I have Asiago, Cheddar, Low Fat American, Mozzarella and processed Swiss slices.

The cheese sauce was thin, leftover from another dish. I mixed some with salsa last night for a delicious, but sloppy cracker dip snack. I'll just keep adding cheeses until it's nice and thick.

For the recipe I did not measure anything. (Yes I am bad about that)

First marinade chicken in a bit of light soy sauce and corn starch.

Make a corn starch slurry.

Make sauce a few tablespoons of chicken stock. (I donít like a lot of sauce so I used perhaps three tablespoons.) A bit of chili garlic sauce. (I used about a teaspoon). And about 1/2 teaspoon light soy sauce.

Then I cut up veggies. Stalks of bok choi were sliced thin, tops were torn into big pieces. Red pepper cut into pointy bits.

Got wok screaming hot, add oil then chicken. Cook chicken a bit then add ginger and garlic. When fragrant add cashew nuts. When everything has some color remove from wok. If needed add more oil then add stalks of bok choi and peppers after they have cooked a bit add tops of bok choi and sauce. Then add a bit of the corn starch slurry. Coat everything with sauce and plate.

Video should be up on You Tube tomorrow.
