What's for Dinner?
I know that I am not unique at worrying about what's for dinner on a weeknight when I have to work all day. Mondays are my day off and I get to play that day. Today I had to work on menus for clients so playing had to be done while standing at the kitchen island watching Oprah. Since my refrigerator is over stocked with veggies, I have to cook them here pretty quick. So tonight I decided that I would do some stir fry and chicken satay. I fell in love with Satays of all kinds when I lived in Japan as a kid. So tonight is a Chicken Satay on the grill, Snow Pea and Mushroom stir fry and a bowl of sticky rice. I will make a dipping sauce of soy sauce, Sake, scallions, garlic, and ginger. I never measure any of this so it's hard to tell you what portions to use. Since my husband takes his lunch to work everyday, I try to make at least enough to have three portions. I used snow peas (a few handfulls) half of a red bell pepper, 3 extra large button mushrooms (I would have used something else if I had it on hand), three or four scallions, two garlic cloves, 1 medium carrot (very thinly sliced) and a 2 inch piece of ginger peeled and minced. Then I pounded the boneless chicken breasts and cut them into strips cutting them against the grain of the breasts. When I cook the satay on the grill I cook them just to the very point they are cooked. Below are the finished products.

Yummy! Sounds great! That's so cool that you lived in Japan as a kid! For how long? And what exactly is a satay - just meat on a stick? I know I like them...

I'm amazed that your grandmas used the ground and the streams to preserve food! That's amazing! I never even thought about people in my lifetime having to do that!
