Well Pirate went shopping and brought me about ten pounds of boneless chicken legs and thighs. So I am going to be preparing them for the freezer. He also brought me the biggest watermelon they had. It priced the same for the smallest as the largest.

So I am presently doing laundry and peeling and slicing two bulbs of garlic to put in a container of olive oil. After that come preparing meats for the freezer. and hang up the laundry. It is going to be a really busy day for me.

What I really want to do is go back to bed. I went to sleep at 3 a.m. and was up at 8 a.m. But I just have too much on my plate today for me to be lazy. But first, I need to fix something for me to eat.

Almost 8:30PM, just finished packing for a day or two up in the Sierra Nevadas at my daughter and SIL's cabin. Last minute trip and so looking forward to it! See y'all in a couple of days.

Thanks, Addie.

Keeping in mind that Chow Mein is an American dish in origin. So you can make it using any veggie you have on hand. Limit the carbs and use low sodium soy sauce.
I ended up making it with bean sprouts and fried mushrooms. I just mixed it all together with the beef mixture. It was pretty good, but I'll be making changes. It definitely needed color.

The bean sprouts were a good idea. It made the dish appear as if it had some kind of noodle in it yet it had it's own great flavor. I definitely recommend it as a noodle substitute. Just be very careful to not really cook it, just warm it up, or it wlll shrivel into nothingness!

When I get the recipe where I want it, I'll post it. It will take a few months at least.

Thanks, ladies! It's just past 7:30 AM and I'm ready to hit the road for some boating, fishing, maybe a little hiking. Have a great day, all!

I've heard of boneless chicken thighs, but boneless legs?
