Barb uses tons of vegetables in a frittata to use them up. I do a stir fry. It's my "clean-out-the-refrigerator" go-to when the vegetable drawers are just too stuffed. This one is a sort of Cashew Chicken....with bok choy, pea pods, home grown red peppers, onions, green onions and celery. It was pretty tasty ~ but I'll probably get tired of it by the time I eat all the leftovers.

Looks good for leftover/ use it up stuff!
You know what would sound good to me? A meal like that, but using diced sausages like Brats. Umm.... the spicy ones.

Tina breaded cubed staek so we can have chicken fried steak.
It was supposed to be Italian breaded steak, but she FORGOT to add the spices and garlic when she breaded them. LOL.... Now how forgetful is that??....She was laughing.

BTW... I did her a favor, and fried them. Like 16 of them.

Stir fry looks good. Tonight I am making enchiladas with left over brisket.

A little of both. It was so good but it will be a lot of work to do another ones in the smoker. Cassie is wanting another pastrami. If I get a corned beef and don't make it myself, that won't be such a chore.

Yeah! I want to make another pastrami. Only this time, I will lower the temperature to 200º instead of the 250 I cooked the last one at. It was a little dry, and probably because Tina buys the really lean cuts.
Then as she was eating a sandwich, she noticed the fat was delicious that was on one section of the meat. She is a Fat Picker Offer person. She won't even eat the crispy charred fat on a Kansas Strip Steak. I just love to knaw on that crisp.
Just look at me, I don't look like I missed many a meal!

One thing though, I must have seeded good Jewish rye bread, or Good dark Pumpernickle bread for pastrami, or corned beef.

I have been interested in Franklin BBQ in Texas. I ordered a book he wrote thinking it was going to be recipes with a little talk but it was all talk with a couple of recipes at the end. It made me rethink a lot about using my smoker and briskets. I smoked a couple of briskets in the last 20 years and they were OK but he made me realize that the temperatures i used to cook brisket to was too low and most store bought briskets were too lean. They all had the fat trimmed off and they all remove the point which like the ribeye to the strip steak. I don't know what temperature you cook the pastrami @ 250 to 200º it might be more juicy because the collagen will break down more. You might consider topping the brisket with bacon while it is cooking to baste it while it is cooking and keep it moist too.

I had leftovers for lunch and now, for supper, I'm not all that hungry.

I decided an ear of sweet corn would be enough to tide me over until tomorrow.

I babysat all day.... what BS....
I can't get nothing done. In between feedings and lunch, and scrubbing up the bathroom, two times, and now supper.... I repaired the lawn mower; but too tired now to cut the grass / weeds / clover.
Tina had to go to the other Uncles to shop, and pick up their pills.

Then GD comes here for lunch working at her new job at wally world. She went back to work till 10 pm.
Tina is on her way back now, so she is picking up something for Mr fussy to eat.
I will have the two shrimp egg rolls and pork fried rice left from the other day.

Thank goodness for microwave ovens. Smile

When I ask the kids what they want for dinner they always say they don't know. But when I give them a choice they do choose something. Yesterday I asked them to choose between Cuban Sandwiches, Seafood Enchilada Casserole and a Malaysian steak recipe. They chose the steak recipe. It was supposed to be serve with rice but I decided to roast potatoes instead.

Just a quick question about the beef recipe....

Is the ginger paste in a tube like the basil, dill, etc. in the produce section? I've not seen it around here. I'd probably just sub some freshly grated frozen ginger root I have.

I did used freshly grated frozen ginger. I looked for some out of curiosity and didn't see any.

The only ginger paste I have seen comes in a small jar. You can usually find it in the fresh produce section on those shelves that are under the produce tables. Christopher Ranch is one brand name.

Last night I tried out a new side dish that was very good. The recipe had you boil those baby red potatoes until done. Drain and let dry and cool a bit in the pan. Then you take each potato and press on it till it get smashed into a thick patty. Those were browned on each side in butter. Took about 20 minutes. Grated cheddar was sprinkled on top and allowed to melt. Potatoes were plated with a dollop of sour cream and chopped green onions. Sort of like potato skins. I have been nibbling on some leftover cold ones today. I wish I could post a picture but our cameras are broken.
