WOW - it's been a long time!

Things have been absolutely crazy at work lately. I was tired when I got home several nights in a row and got nothing done. Now I'm trying to get caught up on housework. I did get most of my laundry caught up last night. We've invited the church youth pastor for dinner on Monday, so we have a deadline and have to get the house cleaned up!
I tried a new recipe last night - sort of. I made lo mein and then made shrimp cooked in garlic, orange juice, hoisin sauce and a little cayenne pepper. The sauce, while simple, was really good, but I think it lends itself better to beef. So, I think next time I'll dredge some thin beef in cornstarch and cook it in oil. The cornstarch might thicken the sauce just a little and I think it will taste great! I also think it would be better with rice. Throw in some crab rangoon or potstickers with broccoli and we'll be good to go! I'm getting better with Asian cuisine, although my crab rangoon isn't as pretty as what you normally see in a restaurant.
