Sometime, I'm lazy to cook and just want a simple lo mein vegetable noodle. I boil spaghetti and frozen stir fry veggies together, enough to make 1 bowl. Drain and mix in 1 tspn. of hoison sauce with 1 tspn. of oyster sauce while it's still hot.

That's it.

Thinking of making a batch of Apricot Slush. With this heat I should have done it long ago! It's been a few years since I made this, but it is good!

Frozen Apricot Slush

1 qt pineapple juice
1 qt apricot juice (not sure I've seen this lately but the V-8 Splash juice has got to have some sort of apricot blend)
12 oz frozen lemonade
12 oz frozen orange juice
1 pint apricot brandy
1 cup vodka
Mix & freeze in ice cream pail. To serve, fill glass half full, then add 7-Up or Squirt to fill the glass.

I used to make a slush similar to that years ago, too Nodakgal. It was very popular!!! (pssssst, glad to see ya)

This is on the agenda for dinner tonite. I'm using 3 boneless breasts and I'll decrease the sauce ingredients.

Sticky Chicky (Eat, Shrink and Be Merry)

16 boneless skinless chicken thighs
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp grated gingerroot
2 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp cumin
1 tbsp cornstarch

Preheat oven to 400*
Spray a 9x13" baking pan with cooking spray. Arrange chicken in a single layer.

Whisk all sauce ingredients, except cornstarch. Pour evenly over chicken. Turn pieces to coat both sides.

Bake, uncovered, 40 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink into the center. Remove chicken from pan and keep warm.

Pour sauce into a small pot and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Combine cornstarch with an equal amount of water and mix until smooth and stir into sauce to thicken.

This sounds good and it won't heat up the kitchen (or me).


1-1/4 c. raw converted rice
1/2 c. melted butter
3 cups chicken broth
4 cups cut-up cooked chicken
2 cans sliced mushrooms, drained
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 package (12 ounce size) frozen shelled shrimp
8 green onions, chopped
2/3 cup slivered almonds

Mix rice with melted butter or margarine in slow cooker. Stir to coat rice thoroughly. Add all remaining ingredients, except slivered almonds and some green onions to sprinkle over top. Cover and cook on low 6 to 8 hours, or High 2 to 3 hours.
