Wok this way....


So, this is my Christmas present (by choice)!! Not the broccoli - the wok!! This was my first venture using it last night... And it was a success! It came out tasting very yummy - and that's not just my taste buds talking!! Anybody that wants to be bored by the recipe - let me know... It was not at all hard and you could do it in a regular skillet as long as it was deep enough... But it was so fun going wang chung last night!!

Here's the picture with the meat added...


Voila! I'm going to try a shrimp one next. I also got a roasting pan for Christmas (again by choice) and I used that one a couple of weeks ago. I made prime rib! It also turned out pretty good. And, I have 3 other mouths to verify that... We invited another couple over that would not be offended if we had to order pizza afterwards and we did not have to!! That's when you know you have good friends - they agree to eat things you cook when you have never cooked them before.... now that takes real guts and love from friends!!!

I had it again tonight and it's tomorrow's lunch... I'm not shy of left-overs... of certain kinds of food. There are just some things that just suck the day afterwards..... like rice. I hate 2nd day rice. That's only good once - and fresh out of the pot. Can't really think of other things that suck the next day except the 2nd day in a hospital or the 2nd day of IV steroids.... That's the day that horrible headache hits you if you don't eat everything in your pantry ALONG WITH the naseau that goes so well with a fully distended belly....

But I digress... I was only going to talk about food and yummies!! So, it must be time to bid adieu... : ]

Looks yummy. I love my wok! We also have a tradition of roasting a prime rib New Years day! Yum Yum! I love to cook. I have a wonderful cooks kitchen. Unfortunately the MS has limited my ability to cook to a large degree with the chair, but I'm still doing it!
