The beef sounds yummy. Here's for the Salad. The EAST Meets WEST Salad.
::
6 cups shredded iceberg lettuce.
1 large carrot, peeled and shredded.
1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro or parsley.
2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar.
4 teaspoons "KIKKOMAN" soy sauce.
1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted.
1 tablespoon water.
2 teaspoons sugar.
::
Toss lettuce with carrot and cilantro. Measure vinegar, soy sauce, sesame seeds, water and sugar into a jard with screw-top lid; cover and shake well until sugar dissolves. Pour over lettuce mixture and toss lightly to combine.
::
Serve immediately ("naked and holding a 1 ltr. bottle of Jack Daniels on the left hand").

Munchie Cake

1 & 1/2 C Flour 1 C sugar 3 T Cocoa
1 t each baking soda, baking powder, salt
5 T oil or melted oleo
1 t each vanilla and vinegar
Add one cup hot water or coffee
Bake in preheated 350 oven for 35-40 min
You can play with this a lot. Sub some cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger (about half tsp each)for the cocoa and hot apple juice or cider for the water/coffee and you've got a great spice cake.
Oh, and it doesn't matter what sort of vinegar you use, ime. I've used cider, white, rice and even some garlic wine once. Very moist, needs no frosting.
Enjoy.

Hi Lee. Decided to follow you on over and see what's cooking. I have something to add. I LOVE grilled mushrooms and vegetables. And they're best when grilled with Mesquite Charcoals. You get some
Portabella Mushrooms and some butter (real, not margarine) and place them face down on the grill. Spread the butter generously over them and let them cook for about 5 minutes, turn them over and put some more butter on them and let them cook some more about 5 more minutes and take them off and you have some really great and juicy mushrooms. I also like to do this with greeen peppers, onions (some vidalia's if you can), but red ones are good too, chicken chunks, and mushrooms on a skewer. I know, they call this shiskebobs. You spread butter all over them and let them get a little charred. I kind of stopped fooling with the skewers and just put them in a grill pan and just stir them and let them get a little charred through the holes in the pan and its much easier to eat. Just spoon them up onto a plate and munch out.
Its simple but I eat light AND I'm border line lazy!
And if anyone has a gas grill you can get some mesquite charcoals for your grill. They truly give the food good flavor. Oh and I forgot that I WILL put this with some grilled Salmon or some Yellow Fin Tuna. Lay them on the grill with some butter generously put on them (it keeps them from sticking which fish will do, NEVER USE FROZEN FISH ON A GRILL) and cook for a few minutes, depending on the size and thickness of the fish. Turn over and put butter again on them let cook and when you remove squeeze fresh lemon all over the fish. This with the mushrooms or grilled veggies and some garlic bread with a salad is a great meal!
Oops, and don't forget the wine!

Pepperoni Bread Sticks-

2 cups warm water (baby bath warm)
5 teaspoons yeast
5 tablespoons margarine/butter
5 1/3 teaspoons honey
2 2/3 teaspoons garlic powder or about 5 fresh cloves peeled and minced
1 1/3 cup parmesan cheese (the kind that comes in the shaker, not fresh grated)
5 tablespoons powdered milk
2 2/3 teaspoon salt
5 1/3 cups of bread flour

Mix all together in order. Shape into snakes, about an inch by 5 inches. The size doesn’t matter. ;o)

Let rise in a warm place for 30 to 45 minutes. The dough should be a third again in size.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake about 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve with pizza sauce.

Goes really well with beer.

there is a 100 different ways you can use vodka.. i will give you a few....PIE CRUST. instead of water, use vodka..... take five liters of vodka and add it to your bath water. clean up cat pee with vodka. clean your guns with it.. add it to your hair, good for a cold, good stain remover.. add it to your recipes instead of wine... hey i can go on and on.. But it is your turn.
