Yes, my sister is mostly eggs or meat...Likes all types of cheese. and she's fussy about veg.  She was 50 before she'd try asparagus and/or Brussels sprouts.  Actually, she eats the same thing every night: Steamed mixed veg with zucchini and yellow squash added to the mix, and cous-cous on the side.  LARGE helpings of both.  She looks like she's 13 months pregnant.  (has a combination of shredded wheat and some sugary cereal for breakfast, and a cottage cheese and tomato salad for lunch.  EVERY day.)

She also snacks on wheat crackers, tortilla chip, and Kettle Chips. dip.

I can't tell her anything about my weight loss "program."  She goes ballistic and breaks things.  Asperger's syndrome...has a memory like a steel trap; she's almost 70, and still complains about a first grade teacher who was"mean" to her.  I had the same teacher, and she was "mean" to all of us...didn't single anyone out. 

My sister doesn't "carry" grudges, she cherishes them and nurtures them.  And she's a JeeHoover's Witless...because they are the only people who will put up with her.  she has NO other friends.  Pitiful.

Patricia, quinoa is a great substitute, esp. for white rice (which I never use). I made apple bread with barley the other day, but, despite soaking, the barley made the bread "grainy". Still good.

Mmmm.  That looks and sounds delicious, Patricia.

Do you & your sister cook separately, Sk8ey?

Comment by Patricia on February 18, 2014 at 10:56pm

I use the white rice for the stir fry only. Other than that I use the brown grains for soups, stews etc.

You gave me an idea to try the barley or even quinoa to see if I like that with my Asian flavors.

I never follow any set recipe, but this particular supper is cubed pork, cauliflower, broccoli, onion, red peppers, peas, with sweet 'n sour sauce.

Oh, Patricia, that looks perfect!

I have a wonderful collection of frozen veg for stir fry, but dammit...I can't stay on my feet long enough to cook anything!  and I'm HONNNNgry! 

PS: I use brown rice...takes an hour to cook properly, but I've learned to like it.  And sometimes I use barley...also takes forever to cook, but it's tasty.

My stir fry on rice.....

Yummm! This site has so much culinary genius. One day, we will publish a cook book for atheist palates. We are a discriminating lot, paying attention to how things are done, what makes good combinations, why we choose the foods we do, what constitutes a healthy, life sustaining, enriching life and when we need to re-evaluate our eating patterns.

Joan, the frittata came out very easily. When I cook the chorizo, I saute the onions, peppers in the rendered fat, and leave the fat in the pan. Add the tomatoes, then eggs and cheese, and in a 350 F oven for 30 minutes.

When I lost power the other day, I "grilled" in the basement by placing hot coals (from my wood burner) into a bucket, and put some turkey sausages on a grate to cook. Worked for me!

And for Joan, the pie turned out fabulous. The apples sort of carmelized. My crust was a little tough, however.
