I fixed a stir fry of onions, green chiles and red peppers and grilled chicken breast strips with kinda a sweet and sour sauce.

Thanks Kay, it's delicious and you can pick out the peanuts. Several of my family members would do that, too. And what a deal from the dollar store! Ours doesn't have produce.

Thanks for the review of your shrimp dish and for the link, Andy - I'll need to register for CC, the recipe was blurred out. I've been intending to sign up for their site anyway.

Well, after my fish fiasco last night, tonight I made something a little easier. I took a half breast, salted it, and roasted it in the oven, after which I made a lemon-thyme sauce for it that turned out pretty good. Yes, I'm surprised.

That's me being surprised.

Cheryl, your Pad Thai looks good.

Andy, I make chicken perlo a few times during cold weather. Glad you liked your shrimp one.

Aunt Bea, great minds and all...

We had fried cod from the deli, along with a few fried bay scallops. And some cabbage, except ours was mixed into mashed potatoes and sauteed onions and called it Colcannon. I made enough potatoes for leftovers; thinking of tossing in an egg and a bit of flour and turning them into potato patties.

The potato patties sound great!

You could also add some chicken stock or beer, cayenne pepper and cheddar cheese for a quick soup!

Leftovers are just ingredients without a purpose!

That's a really good idea, Aunt Bea. Maybe some other time, though. Right now my taste buds are set on patties. I've also been wanting an old-time comfort potato soup from a recipe I had in an old issue of The Mother Earth News. It's a quick and easy cheese-potato soup. The first cheese called for is "Longhorn", which is darned impossible to find around here, so I've been using cheddar. Sometimes we bring a chunk back with us after visiting the kids. Lo and behold, we found true Longhorn in the heavily Hispanic marketed store not too far from us! We'll be having potato-cheese soup soon.

LOVE that line, Aunt Bea! You should use it as your signature at the end of your posts.
