Please tell us more about chicken lettuce wraps. I've recently seen a recipe on this and I may post it. I think it was--of all odd places--reading a novel. I know I have notes to support this.

And I can dig for an Asian recipe I have for similar (without chicken but +shrimp dried).

I had a single pork tenderloin. I butterflied it and cut it into three equal pieces, pounded them out with the heel of my hand, and seasoned them well with herbs, salt & pepper. Then I fried it "Tatsu style" with flour, egg wash, and Panko crumbs, being very careful not to overcook. Steamed rice and oven roasted asparagus completed the meal. Oh yeah......Steve and I will share a sandwich with the third piece tomorrow.

Is there any cut of meat more versatile or delicious than a pork tenderloin?
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

not a big family; there's just 3 of us. and 2 parrots, who eat most human food.

i love to order a lot of dishes when getting chinese food. a little from column a, a little from column b as it were.

but we do end up with leftovers. of all types of foods, chinese leftovers are probably the best tasting.

really, though, it wasn't that much. just 2 soups, an appy (the shrimp rolls), fried rice, and one entree for each of us.

and now i have enough leftovers for another 2 meals for me to take to work.
