Friday & Saturday

Fri: 18:42 Today has been quiet. Pain/numb 8/6. Cleaned up kitchen, dying hair with T's help. #almeds

Nerdrage: I don't play, but I would be furious too... Warcraft Widow Deletes Boyfriend’s Toons

LA's fabulous Prince Poppycock on America's Got Talent: Does this mean I have to watch the show? Great performance either way.
And Arc Attack too? Damn it. Since when does reality TV feature freaks in a good way?

Sat: 21:21 An especially ap post as I lost all of today to braindead and sleep: #almeds 1 thing = cook. (Side note: dye still in and totally dry now, head still wrapped in a towel; T will help me wash it out tomorrow morning. Hopefully 36 hours will make it take a bit better in the white hair.)

And today's featured meal: Beef with Broccoli. Total prep/cooking time about 20 minutes. A lighter version of the take-out classic, with less salt, less fat, and no MSG, wheat, or corn products.

1.5 lbs lean beef for stew, cut into bite size chunks
1 Large bag frozen broccoli
1-2 Cloves Garlic, chopped fine
2 tbsp sesame oil
4 tbsp sesame seeds
1/4 c vegetable broth
Salt & Pepper to taste

In large skillet or wok heat oil, add garlic, salt & pepper, saute beef until browned on all sides. Add vegetable broth, simmer uncovered for ~ 5 minutes. Add broccoli & sesame seeds, simmer until broccoli is cooked but crisp. The sauce will be thinner than in take-out, but it's got wonderful flavors. Serve over steamed rice.
