I'm making a variation of Thai-style pork in sweet chili sauce from the Steamy Kitchen cookbook. I don't have chicken but I have pork loin, so will sub that. The recipe also includes bell peppers, onions, fish sauce and soy sauce. I'll serve it over rice.

MsM....I'm SO glad to see you again and hope you're feeling better. Whata bummer!

Great pics Harry and Pac!

I scored at the dollar store today They had the most beeeeautiful fresh asparagus at a buck a pound. I could hardly believe my eyes at this time of year, and people were practically fighting over it. I grabbed 5 lbs and didn't feel a bit guilty, although I got some snide looks.

I've been wanting to pickle some for a long time but I used some of it in an old stand by of a keeper recipe for a dinner casserole with chicken called "Chicken Asparagus Ole'"
If anyone wants the recipe I'll be happy to type it out tomorrow
.
i'd have gone for 10lbs & "damned the eye's" of the snide lookers,kay!!
love asparagus,so i'd like the receep please!

I used to live on fast food when I was 20-something and could eat whatever I wanted, but I can tell already that I'll probably pay for this later.

On a related note, is it just me or does the smell of fast food linger for a long time? I can still smell "special sauce" even though we ate two hours ago.
steady on tiger,this is a family show!!
"sometimes only a big mac will do" eh,steve?.with me it's the colonel.once a month treat "mighty bucket" for one.....so what?i eat/drink healthily the rest of the time & when kfc is good,it's sooooo good imo!"a little of what you fancy does you good"as the song goes!!

Arizona dreaming is what we call a southwest blend of dry spices. Here are the ingredients: ancho chili pepper, black pepper, onion, garlic, paprika, spices, cumin, citric acid, Mexican oregano, cilantro, lemon peel, chipotle pepper, red pepper, jalapeņo, cocoa, natural smoke flavoring.
I think I had a jar at one time, but prefer Acapulco Gold by a company called Tasty Licks (I know you could have a field day with that one, lol). I'm not sure where the liquid smoke is figuring in... I'd just use your favorite taco or fajita blend. The balsamic vinegar, while not overpowering, is really where the flavor is at.
