What an interesting flavor.

I don't know if I like it, I think I will. I'm cooking dinner. Sometimes I do random cooking and just throw food into a pan and see what happens. Tonight's creative cooking recipe: chicken, hoisin sauce, lime juice, garlic, ginger, pepper, soy sauce, a bit of water and just cook it in the pan. Then I threw in some left over rice to make it a chicken & rice dish. And I must say it is good. :)

When I used to live in Alaska, my friends, Kate & Dave, lived about 5 apartments down from me. Periodically Dave would eat what I cooked because Kate was a vegetarian and sometimes the boy just needed protein. He would ask me for the recipe and I would say some of this and some of that, but I was never able to say I used 1/2 teaspoon of garlic and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper or whatever. It was just random stuff around.

mmm...that sounds good. I don't use measurements either. I get that from my grandmother who didn't believe in measuring cups.

So Putnawa and I were discussing once whether I knew you... I vaguely remember you from Wick, but I don't think we actually knew each other. But, I did know and remember Kate and Dave.

Kate was far more social than I ever was. Kate and I lived together until midway through my junior year and then she moved out. So I think you were on the 1st floor that year under Carrie and then the HD type person my senior year, when I was on the 3rd floor and pretty much dodged all hall staff as much as possible. I think that's right.

I LOVE hoisin sauce. I did not love living in Wick.
