Most people keep regular hours waking and sleeping. I managed that for 35 years of regular office work, but since I retired in 2006, that went totally out the window. For example, I got up at 11 am Thursday and stayed up til 1 PM Friday. I did some yardwork in daylight and stayed on the computer from after dinner to 1 PM Friday and crashed for 4 hours sleep. Got up at 5PM, fed the Mews 1st and 2nd breakfast then let them out for the brief daylight left.
Stay with me here...
Made dinner at 8 PM. I had lots of "refrigerator-fodder" and a packaged 1/2" slice of uncooked ham. Tghat ham slice is large. I pulled out my 2 burned Lodge cast iron flat griddle and heated tht baby up for 15 minutes. Talk about sizzle!
Then I went to the basement and harvested a dozen leaves of the baby bok choy and celery I'm growing there. Destrung (destringed?) a dozen snow peas, cut strips of red and green bell peppers, sliced up a jalepeno pepper, sliced a 1/2 onion and 4 cremini mushrooms and went to work with the wok.
The celery chunks . peppers, and mushrooms went into the wok first. Followed by the onions, then the celery leaves, sliced bok choy, and shredded garlic and ginger. Then, before they were "almost crisp", I added a 1/4 cup cornstarch and chicken broth mix and let it bubble for slightly over a minute.
My friends, it was the most perfect stir-fry I have ever made!
I did not eat it with a salad,
I did not eat it with a side.
I just put the bowl on table
And I put it all inside!
Even the TV choices were great (I eat watching TV). There was a show about the Broadway hit 'Hamilton', a good Nature show, and MSNBC commentary about the days political events.
I NEEDED THAT! These last 2 weeks have been frustrating. And I haven't even resolved all the email issues yet. But the new computer is up and running except for that, my backup program is working, and I CAN get to each of my 3 email accounts by logging in and out for each one whenever I want to check. I'll solve that one soon.
