    Shrimp Four Seasons ala sleepycat:

    Wild rice cooked in an onion broth
    Covered with Snowpea pods sauteed with chopped garlic and sprinkled with sesame seeds
    Covered with peeled & de-veined shrimp sauteed with saffron in a butter & lemon sauce
    Covered with red and yellow bell pepper shreds steamed 'till hot and crispy

    no side dish, doesn't need one. And no leftovers 'cause every bite gets eaten. *grin*

      Dang, that sounds yummy, I'm going to have give that a try I've got shrimp in the freezer!

      Tonight I had sauteed chicken breasts, steamed broccoli and cheesy noodles. Quick, painless and pretty tasty.

        Last nite I made a stir fry with chicken and Japanese eggplant with a Gen'l Tsao's type sauce over white rice.

        Tonight will most likely be pasta with homemade sauce/meatballs and a salad.

          I haven't found a recipe for homemade General Tso sauce that I like nearly as well as the sauce I get on the chicken at the little Chinese take-out down the street. Sweet'n'sour I can do, but not General Tso sauce. I think it must depend on the kind of chili sauce they add.

            I use Sambal Oelek instead of the whole dried chilies and although it doesn't taste quite the same as the takeout place I go to, it's not bad. It's just ground chili paste with garlic so any other brand should be fine.

            This is very close to the recipe (I don't always measure it out) I make and I just adjust the Sambal to taste:

              Boneless pork chops with General Tso sauce, Spanish rice with green beans, yellow beans and carrots on the side.

              I cheat with some of my sauces... I purchase the prepackaged ones.

                        Thanks for the links. :mmm:

                        I have no idea what I'm fixing for supper tonight. I'm tempted to make sloppy joes, it's been awhile since we had those.

                              Tonight's dinner will be leftovers from my friend's party last night. It was catered food from this Italian place... so... dang.... good. Luckily for me she always over orders so I'll be taking all that out shortly.
