The biggest problem was that it was not high enough, that's what made it difficult to stir (or maybe I overdid it slightly with the old veggies??).

But please, stop praising my cooking skills, it's just a lot of hit and miss, and the only thing I have in common with a chef is that I am a complete choleric when I am in the kitchen. Don't come near me when I am cooking, I am known to resort to violence if people were standing in my way!!! And I have to make doubly sure to have all the ingredients, otherwise I go MENTAL!!!!

Oh, yeah, I did something new yesterday, too.. I never cooked for an animal before... That cat is seriously spoiled....

I used to abhor cooking, but I'm actually starting to like it. Although I think that's because if I let my b/f cook I'd be eating potatoes till they were coming out of my ears.

I'm a big variety eater - I love a supper that's part salad, part pepper cheese and crackers, part raw veggies and dip, part marinated artichoke, etc. A whole bunch of stuff to choose from!

As for the wok - I used to have an electric one, but I lost custody of that in the apartment division a few years back.

Sue, that's the paradox, isn't it? The more money companies have, the bigger they want to grow. People become commodities - entities that can promote and pass on the almighty advertising message. Sure, poverty is terrible and yes, isn't that tragic - but what's in it for me? What does my company get out of it?

McDonald's just had their McHappy Day, where so much of their profits went to local charities. So here they are, promoting artery-clogging crap in a bun and saying "Oh, look at us, aren't we nice?" and people think "ah, look at them, aren't they nice?" and go out and purchase said crap in a bun. Bullsh*t! They using charities to mold their company image. Why do people give to charity? Out of kindness, fond memories, a sense of philanthropy, even guilt. But they give without asking to be pubically recognized. But billion dollar companies? They do it for the money.

Getting off rather large soapbox now!

Warming up frozen dinners is the extent of my cooking.

ssssshhh no giving away secrets, he;s just so cute and you can't eat chicken and not let him have some, and he couldn't handle the peppers so yes he had to have it cooked seperate ( he has his own pan, wasn't my idea, originally )

I didn't mention the carpet, you know the one that you brought from Turkey and he now claimed as his own... I won't tell anybody about it, it's a big secret....

That is a seriously spoiled cat Nikki! (But, I do know that little wok that comes free with the big one - ours got lost in a move.)

Oh, talked with my friend who complains about his 10" wok. He says it's fine for one person. He just happens to be larger than one person and so he cooks for two. He takes joy from picking on me about it because I was sooooo sure it would be the perfect size for him. Dumb me!!!! Now I know better.

He doesn't cook for his cat either because she now lives with me. And, no - I don't cook for her either.

(How is Fred anyway? Besides, spoiled rotten...)
