Mongolian Barbecue Noodle Bowls

You practically make it at the restaurant, why not make it at home - for a fraction of the cost! https://frugalhausfrau.com/

My folks love their nearby “Mongolian” Barbecue place, HuHot. They’re wild about it and so am I…but the cost makes me crazy, especially for what we get – which is delicious, no doubt, but is basically (for them) a big bowl of noodles with about an ounce of meat and for me mostly veggies. Could I do better at home? You tell me…

Grilled Vegetables with Tonkatsu Sauce

Good news! I was just outside and there was a cool wind! By cooler, I mean cool (85 degrees F) compared to what we’ve had. I think that nasty old heat dome is passing by! I wanted to throw up my arms and dance. And maybe I did, just a little. 🙂 I was like Rose in The Titanic. Well, older, chunkier and without Leanardo DiCaprio…or the ship. Ok, so I was just an old lady smiling into the breeze. 🙂titanic-rose-jpg_152711

Salmonchanted Evening – Asian Salmon Packets

I don’t know if I’ve told you that I’m a reformed food snob. For years, I’d only eat the best of this and that…as prices skyrocketed, my budget diminished. I found myself cutting out a lot of the expensive fish, and was missing out on a marvelous brain food. Guess what – I’m no longer a food snob and I’m eating better than ever…
