Nommy foods, no pictures yet...

I know, I'm behind again on the pictures posting, but I'll get to them later this afternoon, provided I get home at a decent hour. I worked late yesterday, then stopped a couple of places for errands, and finally got home after five, whereupon I started dinner:

Thai Cabbage Wraps:

2 Tblspns fish sauce
2 Tblspns lime juice
1 tsp. ground chili (chili powder)

Heat together, then add:
1 lb ground meat (have used beef, last night diced chicken breasts fine, pork also good)
1/4 cup shredded onion (I just slice thin)
3 green onions, chopped
12 mint leaves, chopped

Serve on cabbage leaves.

I've also added chopped carrots to the recipe, and you can add crunched-up rice sticks for added flavor and texture. I also sprinkled in a little Trader Joe's hot chili oil, and the chicken wasn't too spicy. It's usually served as an appetizer at Thai restaurants, but I can't recall the Thai name for it (you know, "Number 6" or something... *g*). We made it with beef on Saturday and I liked it so well I thought I'd make it again, since we had plenty of cabbage and mint left; but we only eat red meat on the weekends now, so chicken it was! Came out pretty darned good.

I have taken several pictures the last few days, but mostly of the sky -- still, just haven't uploaded them yet.

Watched NCIS last night, pleased with the conclusion of last season's VERY intense cliffhanger. I never did warm up too much to Jenny as Director, but Leon rocks. Have a ton of things already on the DVR to catch up on. Since Barb has been working late, too, we haven't watched House, I haven't watched Chuck (and the start of both of those at the same time means I missed the opening of How I Met entirely), Castle, Glee, or The Ev3nt, although I read the latter is not a fitting followup to the much-missed FlashForward, I'll still give it a try. Also DVR'd the new Hawaii Five-0 and I think a few other things, plus I was already a week and a half behind on Craig Ferguson.

Curse you, Tivo. (I didn't mean it, you know I love you!)

I fell asleep on the couch last night watching reruns of Criminal Minds on A&E. I don't think I can keep up with TV. *iz old*

I hope I can start catching up this weekend. *iz also old*

I did enjoy The Ev3nt tonight, though (one thing about Wednesday, there's nothing BUT Criminal Minds on!).

Thanks for the recipe! Can't wait to give it a try!!

Enjoy! It's REALLY yummy! (And, I believe, pretty low in calories, if you use chicken or fish -- without the oil it's all low fat!)

I'm watching NCIS now, liked House and The Event, and am looking forward to The Big Bang Theory. And I, too, am behind in my Craig-watching. For some reason my DVR didn't record the Don Johnson ep, though, which makes me cranky.

I rather liked The Ev3nt, too! Was fairly breathless by the end, but I have to agree with Fen, not sure how they can do that for more than one season. (And, of course, if it's like the still sadly missed FlashForward, they won't HAVE to...)

Try and see if you can find the Don Johnson one on You Tube -- it was good! :-) I'm watching the James Lipton one now... only 10 episodes behind...!

will pass the recipe on to the parents.

i haven't watch NCIS but this encourages me. I hated where they were taking it last year

Hope they enjoy it!

It was a good wrapup on what appeared to be a completely dead-ended situation. At least, I thought so!

that's good to know. netflix arrived and I STILL haven't seen anything i've recorded since last friday
Sep. 23rd, 2010 11:41 am (UTC)
I got a FEW things watched last night, but the trouble with Craig Ferguson is there's a new one almost every night!
Sep. 23rd, 2010 03:20 pm (UTC)
yes that would be a problem. I watched the netflix. I'm in trouble now. i need a day just to catch up
Sep. 24th, 2010 12:25 am (UTC)
Yeah... I had to make the decision which show not to record tonight, since the networks in their wisdom put THREE shows on opposite each other (why couldn't they have left The Big Bang Theory at 8:30 when they moved it to Thursday??? There's only Fringe opposite!
Sep. 24th, 2010 03:49 am (UTC)
i watched bigbang and recorded fringe later
Sep. 24th, 2010 03:56 am (UTC)
Watched Big Bang live, recorded Community and 30 Rock; am watching Fringe live right now.

Re: NCIS, kinda spoilery
It was a dirty trick, but Paloma and Alejandro had been playing pretty dirty, too, so...

Also REALLY liked Leon's "Raiders" solution to the, um, "problem" with Gibbs!

Still haven't watched a lot of NCIS-LA, largely because this last Tuesday I had NCIS on "pause" for about a half-hour and then started actually watching it from the beginning around quarter-to-eight...
