Now, I just want to say that I know these award posts are time consuming to respond to and when they start going around some people get multiple awards and it can get a little ridiculous, so if you want to respond and pass it around, go for it, but please don't feel obligated, we understand!


  1. That looks like a great stir fry...yum!! :-)

  2. What a great idea to put the shrimp over cabbage. I'm always trying to eat less white rice. And I haven't been to a movie theater since 1995!

  3. LOL! I had to laugh at your 7 things about yourself!! I identify with most of them, except the hair color part. I've only been one color, and am fighting to keep it that way. I'm not really a movie theater person either, but occasionally get dragged in by my neighbor who sees nearly every move in the theater. Same issue with the cat too!
    As for the Stir-fry.... yes, yes, yes!! This is one my whole family will love. Anything with an Asian flair I can count on being popular. Nicely done!!
