Beagle brought in some interesting pre-dead things from her walk, so I'm thinking a stir fry with them. I may have to try the velveting technique. We have a lot of Asian ladybugs in the sunroom, they may be good roasted and sprinkled on ice cream, add a nice crunch.

I ran across a tub of unused kitty litter while cleaning the basement. I think I'll mix a bit with some old catnip left behind in the cupboard and use it as a coating for some chicken I have in the fridge. Haven't figured out the sides yet, so I'll report later with detales.

You may want to try this one, CG. 1 can Campbell's pork and beans, 1 sliced hot dog, 1 package prepared lime jello. Mix, chill, and enjoy!

Tonight's dinner was "sushi." I have to say it was pretty good once it stopped wiggling around.

And of course, dessert! How about a slice of "Stargazy Pie?"

I was sure this was an April Fools Day joke when I saw the rice, nice try!

I'm just having a big, loaded up salad. Maybe I'll get lucky and find a nice juicy worm...yum!

I ended up making something different. IF you changed your menu too, join me over in THIS thread to share your real meal.

Somebody needs to take up a collection for her and take away that dang pickup truck. I get dumpster diving, but usually it's lumber.

Just saying.

Buffalo chicken wings, steamed asparagus with melted sharp cheddar over it, corn on the cob, and ice cream. Nom nom nom!
