Hey, the Chinese don’t tell me how to cook in my own home. They fry the rice; I fry the veggies and season the water the rice gets cooked in. It reduces calories and minimizes a big mess in the frying pan. I don’t care if it’s not the way the Asians make it. They never experiment with anything new. It’s always the same for thousands of years. More. Maybe they’ll like this new way too!
Ever taste juicy fried grains? This is it! What a chew! Reduced fat too! Less than one teaspoon fat per one cup serving!
Steve’s on a fried rice kick, so thought I’d rearrange the foundation of fried rice by using quinoa plus red rice which functions as the meat. Success! He added a fresh ginger stick topper and smoky ketchup! Yup! His way!
Can a barbecue bean soup really be Asian? Tastes like Asian to me. Maybe it’s the sesame oil. Maybe it’s the fresh garlic and ginger. Maybe it’s the barbecue in the beans. Maybe it’s all the ingredients combined. Steve picked out the ingredients and I made the soup per his request. He ate a quart of it over toasted bagel croutons. Guess he liked it. I loved it. I had the last cup this morning for breakfast. That’s when I knew why he ate so much. I would have done the same if there had been more!
This week it’s cereal for Steve’s lunches at work. He made the recipe with all the ingredients he thought would be most beneficial for total health. He knows he’s in charge of his own health and he now takes that responsibility seriously!

I had the number, but played it in the wrong order.
I brought 60$ (3, 20s) to play roulette.
The plan was to bet 20$ on three different spins.
I already had the numbers peeled from a piece of furniture I recently gave away.
I played the 1st 20 on 22.
I played the 2nd 20 on 5.
I was going to play 22 again, but stuck with the plan and played 20 on 0.
I played out of order, I know. The 0 was iffy, since most of the time I call the numeral 0 the letter O, which would be 15 in the alphabet.
I had the number, I had the money, I had 3 plays.
On the 3rd spin 22 came up and I had my last 20 on 0.
Such is luck, but I didn’t mind losing as much as I normally would, since it was fun to put 20$ on only 1 number per spin. Only one number comes in.
Dad Tight used to get frustrated with me, because I didn’t cover my bets by boxing them; I only bet the way I thought the dogs or horses would actually finish. (Of course I don’t bet on live beings anymore, because of the enslavement and abuse situations.)
I could have spent a lot of money covering all numerical possibilities. I woke up the next morning happy that I didn’t.
My good fortune was being with family I hadn’t seen in a long time.
