And I'm still sleeping 'cuz I can

Today was the last of the Nurse's Treats and we were well fed, again! Chili and cornbread, prepared by the auxiliary staff, secretaries, ward clerks...It was great. Once again I am still too stuffed to think about eating much tonight! I've had a couple of pomegranate popscicles.

I always compare the cost of things to the price of a drink in the local saloon. The local asparagus was $3.00 a bunch at the farmer's market and I get two meals out of a bunch. That seems like a bargain compared with the price of a beer or a cocktail and I never in my life left a saloon after only one drink, although there was a time in the distant past where I did not buy nearly as many as I consumed!

7:30pm Saturday (Sydney time) when I saw this thread. Just jumped online before heading to the kitchen.
I'm doing Chilli, Lime & Ginger Chicken Stir Fry with Udon Noodles. Had to be something that I could whip up in 20 mins. It's Mother's Day tomorrow and I have to be at the restaurant at 6am to start prepping for breakfast. 100 people booked by 9am (not including walk ins) . HELP !!!

Yes. And lovely they were. Every once and a while you get something that is exceptionally good. These were the best I have had in a long while. Large, plump, tender and very fresh. Mussels are a great value. That pan was only 5 bucks....It fed three of us with corn on the cob and a box of chips from the truck down the block.....
