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 http://geekgirldiva.entertainmentearth.com/2010/06/warcraft-widow-deletes-boyfriends-toons.html

LA's fabulous Prince Poppycock on America's Got Talent: http://coilhouse.net/2010/06/prince-poppycock-holds-court-on-americas-got-talent-2/ 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? http://geeksofdoom.com/2010/06/09/performance-arts-group-arcattack-rocks-out-with-tesla-coils-star-wars/

Sat: 21:21 An especially ap post as I lost all of today to braindead and sleep: http://natalief.livejournal.com/1463594.html #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.

Hooray! That loks like the simplest, tastiest take on Beef w/ broccoli I have seen in awhile. I am making that this weekend. I love it when you post recipes. & I'm not crazy about too-thick cornstarch sauce.
