three quarter pound sirloin tip hamburger on whole wheat bread with a hunk of sharp cheddar and a big slice of tomato and DiGiorno pasta salad.

me too.  they have this new law here whereby shoplifters are not done for less than 70.

So all the shoplifters(crack/drugheads) know this.


I was in the pub and they come in with a choice of sirloin or t-bone from the supermarket next door (for 1).

So I ate steak for supper.
I know I ought not support them, but it was funny and I ate well xL

I ought to know this already.

If I asked what you all are having for pudding I'd get 100 replies, you love to talk about food.  I've only asked about 3 questions and I never get an answer to any of them.  I did ask the first night what ROFLA out loud on the carpet meant and I got an immediate reply.

When I ask where and how you find the make a new thread clickey box, I'm not surprised you ignore me

Chicken & Shrimp Pasta #1

    4 ounces butter or smart balance
    2 teaspoons Cajun spice mix ( i make my own and make it spicier by adding ground thai chili's)
    1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into small pieces
    1 pound fresh linguini pasta ( i like to use the tri-clored kind, but regualr is fine)
    1/2 cup clam juice (low dodium is better)
    2 ounces green bell peppers, cut into thin strips
    2 ounces red bell peppers, cut into thin strips
    2 ounces yellow bell peppers, cut into thin strips
    4 ounces red onions, cut into thin strips
    1/2 pound fresh medium shrimp, peeled, deveined, tails removed
    1/2 cup diced tomatoes

  Place the butter into a saute pan. Allow the butter to melt
 slightly. Add the seasoning into the pan and stir together with the
 melted butter. Add the chicken into the pan and continue to cook
 until the chicken is about half done.

  While the chicken is cooking, carefully place the pasta into boiling
 water and cook until al dente.

  Pour the clam juice into the pan. Add the peppers and onions. Cook
 for another minute, making sure the vegetables are heated through and
 the chicken is almost done. Add the shrimp into the pan. Toss the
 ingredients together and continue to cook until the shrimp are almost
 done. Add the tomatoes into then pan. Continue to cook mixture until
 both the shrimp and chicken are thoroughly cooked through.

or, take some grilled shrimp and chicken, some pesto, and asiago/mozzeralla cheese. Either make a pzza crust or by the ready-made style.  Spread teh pesto over teh crust as you would tomatoe sauce, throw on some red onions, the shrimp and chicken then ocver with cheese and bake until cheese melts.

or get some barbecue sauce and toss in some grilled chicken, use the bbq sauce as you ould tomatoe sauce on the pizza, add the chciken red onions and any veggies you want.  melt some cheese on it and quick bbq chicken pizza

the other thing i like to make is puff pastry layered with a cream cheese vanilla mousse.  make several layers then i top it off with strawberries, blackberries, raspberry an kiwi.  Other fruits work well. Then i bruush it with an apricot glaze.

I do the same thin but instead fo the puff pastry i'll make a graham cracker crust and turn into a fruit pie with cream cheese mousse filling
