A big, delicious homemade chicken salad, made with big chunks of leftover Costco rotisserie chicken.

Just hamburgers tonight.
I hate the thought of the snow that will be here before we know it as well.

We had spaghetti, tossed salad and garlic bread for supper. Just had to boil the pasta as we used my home canned sauce.

For years I've turned a blind eye to the seasoning mixes I've seen on the shelves, because I like doing everything from scratch.

So, I decided to go ahead and buy Sunbird Fried Rice Seasoning Mix and I made it tonight, following directions, adding some chicken.

So-so at best! I've made Fried Rice from scratch before, was just curious as to how it compared. And it didn't.

It said Easy stir-fry recipe. I didn't find anything easy about making this dish.

For public record, I did not drain the yogurt. I did not know I had to.

The soupiness the TV guy was trying to avoid happens even with mayonnaise though. So I thought if I did what he did and salted the cabbage it would come out of the cabbage.

I drained it after the fact, and it came out pretty good.

Fish Friday here in Oz. Bought some salmon fillets and wanted to try something different. I'd been reading recipes lately about "pistachio-encrusted" this and that, so I thought I'd try it with the salmon. It was a big hit. Pan-fried the salmon fillets a couple minutes a side in olive oil, then place them on a baking sheet lined with foil. Pressed the chopped pistachios into them and broiled them for several minutes. I didn't put them close to the broiler elements because the recipe said to not burn the nuts, so I put the rack about halfway down.

Served on a bed of brown basmati rice with a side of pan-fried medley of veggies: diced red peppers, onion, garlic, green beans and peas. Bit of chicken stock, white wine, tiny bit of cream, some parmesan cheese. The veggies were a hit too.

A glass of Western Australian Sauvignon Blanc, and life is good!

They are usually made of crappy, cancer-growing MSG anyway!
