Sauteed tialpia, couscous, and some green, probably broccoli.

Sorry about the layoff. Tough times all around.

I'm so sorry to hear your unfortunate news, and wish you the best of luck getting reemployed. I'm glad there's a positive side to your situation.

I wish he had put leap day at the end of the year rather than so early as it is. It would make calendar keeping easier. We need the leap day somewhere of course because a year is about 365.25 days long and those .25 days add up over centuries and next thing you know summertime is in January.... (northern hemisphere) I wish they'd thought out this calendar thing better and put the solstice on January 1st.


Well my good news is that the only painful part of my dentist visit was paying for it, so I stopped at my favorite Asian market (Vietnamese owned) and got some nice shell-on shrimp and some Jasmine rice...

So dinner will be my Shrimp with Crispy Walnuts in Creamy Sauce version 0.01, the first time I'll have reduced my experimenting to a full meal. The shrimps will have a thin battering, canned pineapple chunks, the sauce is made from mayonnaise, condensed milk and honey or sugar, and I'm shortcutting the crispy walnuts with a package product from Trader Joe's. I'll make my own crispy walnuts next time. I expect it will take several versions before this recipe is ready for prime time.

I'm planning my first trip to Trader Joe's since it opened a couple of weeks ago (to a traffic jam, according to the newspaper). Those crispy walnuts will be the first thing I look for, so you'd better post your recipe. It's about 30 miles from here (our gas is $3.80/gal now) and I want it to be worth the trip.

I kind of cleaned out the refrig, so its pork loin stuffed with a various mishmosh of cheese, portabellas, ham, salami, spices etc.. I hope it turns out well enough.. and since we are under a tornado watch I hope my power doesn't go out before it is done!

Sorry to hear about the layoff msmofet, hope it turns into something better for you somehow.. in the long run.

Rock, your chicken looked beautiful so I'm thinking tonight will be a breeze, good luck to you.

Thank you everyone for the good wishes. I ordered pizza and am drowning my sorrow in some of Trader Joe's AWESOME coffee ice cream and and couple Trader Joe's toasted coconut cookie thins. YUMMY I will worry about the job tomorrow.
