There are about a million recipes that have those ingredients in them, so with those 5, or any two of them, I can make one of several dozen stir-fry dishes. I would make the spectrum of flavors for a combo meal of:


1. Using my short grain rice, I would make them a sushi presentation of about 8 pieces per/person, with Salmon/Tuna/Whiting/Yellowtail nigiri evenly spaced into a circle with some seaweed salad in the center.

2. Thinly sliced ribeye flash cooked in very hot oil, combined with a soy/garlic/ginger/sweet chili sauce and mixed with water chestnuts/broccoli/carrots/spring onions and served over steamed long grain rice.

3. I would take some veggies and use the food processor to reduce them to a puree. I would season that puree with mesquite BBQ seasoning and garlic. Then add just enough white sauce to make it slightly fluid and wrap it with chicken pounded into very thin wraps. Then gently lower it into the wok just long enough to cook the chicken. This would be served around a small bowl of jasmine rice with spring onions and carrot bits mixed through it.

----
2. I would take the door on the left and spend the remainder of my life in peace and introspection. There is enough in my mind now to keep me busy thinking of it for many years. While doing so, I could get my exercise and enjoy the tranquility of my surroundings. Maybe even meet and gain some animal friends to enjoy the place with.

----
3. Honesty. Without honesty, everything else is pointless. It's the building block of all experiences and it's absence is the primary reason for all failures. If a person is not honest with others, it is always discovered and they will be shunned by anyone knowing their dishonesty, leading to despair and loneliness. If one is not honest with oneself, it is the utmost tragedy of life. One's life is truly pointless then.

Note: I kinda cheated with the "fresh vegetables" part. I guess I should have restricted myself to only one vegetable, but I just couldn't resist. It's a well known fact that food thieves hate vegetables...
I'm really enjoying your answers to all the questions. I'm quickly becoming a fan of yours.

I read a pretty good spectrum of books. I just finished two on DIY decking and I'm now reading the second book in the "Coyote" trilogy, (Coyote Rising), and prior to that I read a war novel called "Crush Depth".

I read about two books each week and have done so for about 50 years.

I'm into everything. It depends on what I'm into at the moment, when I'm picking out books.

I generally stroll up and down the library shelves and scan titles. When one of them jumps out at me, (Pick Me! Pick Me!), I grab it and read the synopsis.

In the last year? I guess about 100 books or so. Maybe more, maybe less.

Oh my goodness! I love almost all foods, so it's hard for me to pick just a few! I guess my favorite way to cook food is in stir fry, so any veggies that can be stir fried are the ones I look forward to the most. I am partial to Artichokes. OMG, I love them with a dipping sauce of homemade mayo and melted butter mixed well and just a tad of garlic mixed in.

My favorite winter meal would be one of my frozen stews. I make huge stews when I make them, because by the time I have the proper amounts of ingredients in them, they just grow to HUGE!

I love my own cooking! I cook zillions of things and have taught myself to do them all well. My worst? Has to be baking. I'm so bad at baking!

I use a bread machine, or I'd have to buy that junk that they sell that looks like bread but tastes like library paste. I love my bread machine!

What dish that you make gets the most praise?

If you could hang with one celebrity for a day who would it be?

My friends love my sushi. It turns out well, but I'm so slow. A sushi chef would crack up if they saw me make sushi. I could serve one customer every hour. That one person would love it, but they would have to be very patient.

When I make it, it takes me about an hour to prep the veggies and other stuff, and then another 20-30 minutes to assemble it for eating.

It's the only type of art I'm good at.

If I could hang out with a celebrity for a day, with no doubt what-so-ever, it would be Professor Stephen W. Hawking.

When I departed that evening, he would tell who ever is around, to "never let that person near me again! He asked me 143 thousand questions!"

What do like the most about yourself?

If you could pass something on to the next generation what would it be?

What was the most happiest moment in your life?

Hola mi amigo :)

What's your favourite smell?

Which song's lyrics describe or relate to you most?

If you were a soup, which one would you be?
