My husband would fly to Florida for this 🙂

I bet he won’t have to . . . 😉

BTW: For those who want/need animal protein, serve bowls of shredded chicken, pork, or beef for diners to add with the peanuts.

Delightful! I’m taking notes from all you top chefs 🙂

I’m no chef . . . but I have bunch of recipes for delcious and healthy meals that we love to EAT!

If the dishes magically appeared on the table while I wrote . . . that would work for me. 😉

Oh YUM!!

Nancy, if you ever decide that you want or need a change of occupation, you could easily become a chef!!

Love this idea, in fact, I’m going to make it tonight!

Thanks, Andi! It’s a delish dish.

We thought about opening a small take out place. With freezers full of prepared meals for people to take home and reheat on nights when they don’t feel like cooking.

We also toyed with opening a B&B, but I’m not an early morning person and would NOT enjoy getting up at 3 am to fix biscuits for breakfast for hungry guests.

We seriously contemplated buying a sailboat and hosting lunch and dinner cruises, and sunset cocktail parties, on board for 15-20 passengers at a clip.

Who knows? Might still happen.

OK, I made this dish last night.
Absolutely smashing!!
I’m still an ‘animal protein’ eating girl so I made mine with chicken and washed it down with a nice semi-sweet white wine.

Scrumptious!!

We had it last night too! I also made lo mein (same veggies and noodles, different sauce).

Served this chilled (but spicy!) and the lo mein heated.

We rounded it out with egg rolls and . . . watermelon.
