I tried a new recipe today. It could use some tweaking, but it wasn't bad: artichoke-spinach dip with pasta and chicken.

I did things a little differently, too, but it all came together OK.

We had pan fried thick loin lamb chops I bought at Costco again. I think if I was on death row for my last meal, I would order them but I'd have to cook them. When I eat them I sound just like Sally.

I am currently interested in American Southern cooking, dear Harry. But I'm not too obsessed of it. It is interesting to learn of different cooking.

I'm sometimes confused of your posts, but not of your photos. I don't know the answer to your question, or questions, but I do see what a wonderful cook you are, and I missed you.

With love,
~Cat

We are just picking at leftovers. Had a big holiday meal at work today at lunch time. DH came to the office for it, as his work called a snow day. Quite the spread for our potluck, we had roast turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, stuffing, potato salad, Caesar salad, green salad, an interesting potato casserole, green bean casserole, a crudités platter and rolls. For dessert, cheese cake, two kinds of cookies, popcorn squares, pumpkin pie and strawberry shortcake with whipped cream. It was all pretty yum, at least what I ate. Oops almost forgot, cranberry sauce.....well we really didn't have it, because the person that was going to make it fresh, didn't come to work because of the snow. Someone ran to the store for the canned stuff, but we couldn't find the can opener, so no cranberries ;)

Well, that and I never seem to fill up. I need an Italian stir-fry dish

I think I might grill a couple small lobster tails tonight and whip up a pasta side for dinner.
chinese cooking is very similar to the batch cooking system employed in indian resto's.as you know,there will be 3 or 4 basic sauces(gravies)on the back burners & the chef's just add the appropriate spices/herbs to a dollop of gravy along with the meat or seafood,in a pan,to create the jalfrezi,madras or vindaloo that the diner ordered.same with chinese.the sauces aren't pre mixed but the basic stirfry sauce is usually rice wine,soy,garlic,ginger & sesame oil which you just adjust with your hoisin,black bean,oyster,chilli sauces or whatever to get to the dish you want.simps!!
