Stirfry!

I not know whats got into me at the moment, maybe its reflecting spring, but all I want all the time is veg, but its too cold for serious salad eating yet, so another stirfry it is. We had it twice last week as well. I haven't eaten so much stirfry since I was a student. I am thinking that if this continues I am going to have to start messing with some more complicated flavours before DH gets too bored: I am craving it soimply though and just using a lot of grated ginger and a little soy.

Lulu, I craved veggies when I was expecting...do you have some news you want to share??? Just teasing you a bit sweetie.

Tonight is Mediterannean Herb Roasted chicken with potatoes, red peppers and zucchini. I'll also make another garlicky salad. I think we will just have some of the cookies I have been baking for dessert unless I get creative and whip something else up. I have to say I have a craving for chocolate pudding, warm from the pot, with chocolate chips melting on top. MMMMMMMMMMMMM!

DARN!

I should mention the veggie thing was with the first one, the second one I craved chocolate covered doughnuts. Do I need to tell you which one is the healthy eater and which is the junk food addict? LOL.

I have to say though, your post got me thinking I didn't get enough stir fry the last tiem I made it. Now I want some more, but its too soon for the rest of my family. Phooey.

Ohhhhh I love italian sausage and peppers. This is something we always get at an outing that has food vendors. I don't make it often enough here and I need to remember to do so.

Clean out the fridge night!
1 beef kosher hot dog with mustard and onion, 2 pc of leftover pepperoni pizza, 1/2 container of leftover tasteless frozen corn and whatever else I find in the bottom of the fridge
On the plus side though I'm starting a loaf of bread tonight for tommorows dinner

Pan seared NY strip steaks smothered in thinly-sliced onions along with my Cobb-style potato salad which has hard boiled eggs, bacon and blue cheese mixed in.

Thanks Lulu,
it's noting fancy, but it's tasty and filling and above all easy..Our Olivia is getting a new tooth and is insisting on being held today. That makes it kind of hard to zip around the kitchen

I made a lamb stew over the weekend and I think that I will have that for my dinner tonight. Instead of a salad I will have sliced tomatoes.

We're having pork loin roast with potatoes, carrots and brussels sprouts, if I can get my rear in gear and get it in the oven.
