The Grocery Game: Day . . . 22?

I don't know about you, but it seems I've missed a few days.  My last post was on Saturday, Day 19, which should technically set this post at Day 22 . . . except it's after midnight when I post this, so that makes it Day 23, right?  LOL

Well, at any rate.  Never fear that you've missed something incredibly yummy.  I've been munching on leftovers (Lentil and Brown Rice Taco filling in tortillas with cheese like a quesadilla) (Egg-Spinach-Bacon Burritos) (and lots of Apples) . . . oh, and I can't forget the fresh beans I've been plucking in the garden.  YUM!  :)

You see, the Conference threw me way off routine.  Then, there is Silver Oak Farm (again) and all it's dedicated time consuming tasks (have I mentioned I planted three different varieties of garlic on Sunday?).  It's been nothing but organized chaos around here, and all I've got to show for it is a VERY yummy set of Chinese dishes.

But you don't mind, now do you?  :)

First!  You must meet Sam.

Sam makes my husband very happy.

That's because Sam has know-how on all things construction.  Gil has invited Sam to be a part of the Barn project.  Sam agreed.

Of course, in order for the Barn project to move forward, Gil must first repair Black Jack Bridge.

Without Sam around, he's a little less happy.  I don't do chainsaws.  :)

Well . . . after this rigorous day ~ what with me planting garlic and the GilGuy hob-nobbing with Sam and fixing the bridge and all . . . it turns out we were both slap exhausted.  Too exhausted to lift a pinkie finger, it seemed.

But we still had to eat supper.

So, while Gil cleaned up, I tooled about the kitchen, looking for something quick and tasty.  I found it!  A perfect choice, too, because we'd only eaten about half of the pineapple I'd sliced the night before.

Stir Fry Chicken in Sweet and Sour Sauce.  This little dish is fast, easy and oh so good, with a light flavor.  Just right for a workin' man.

I tossed some Jasmine rice in the rice cooker and set about adding some vegetables to the table as well.  Even though the tastes were likely to collide, I opted for a Spicy Orange seasoned sauce for the vegetables.

We dined like kings that night.  It was so good, I wished I'd had some for leftovers the next day . . . but I couldn't stop eating.  So, stuffed on veggies and fruit, I stumbled away to the bed to dream of garlic cloves and dirt.

All in a day's work, eh?  :)
