    I am waiting on my friend. He says later in this month. He had to travel for work and then attend a conference.

    I cannot for the life of me figure out why too much leftover Chinese food is a problem.Not a problem here. If there really was a ton of it I would freeze it.

    Ummm, sure. What? It freezes decently. Put the topping on rice in single servings and freeze it.

    I've never tried it. I figured there would be something in the myriad of ingredients that wouldn't freeze well. But now I know!

    Most people are much pickier than Li am, so I am not saying you will like it.

    But for me, there isnt a Chinese, vietnamese or Thai dish I know that doesnt freeze fine for my purposes.

    My project of eating my pantry down got a kick in the pants from letting my car plates expire on Friday, but not realizing until Saturday morning. Three day weekend so I can't get legal until Tuesday (tomorrow). I pulled out a bunch of stuff from back shelves and realized I could eat well all weekend. I do have my Mom's car at this point as she doesn't want to battle the tourist traffic on the Holiday weekend in this tourist by-way of a town. I don't drive it unless I really need something, out of guilt that I was flaky enough to let my own car get illegal.

    I found a couple of cans of (Costco again) roast beef I forgot about, I am clearing out my freezer and figuring out that with some noodles and some potatoes I shouldn't need anything else to get through the next week.

    I don’t like either rice or noodles once they have been frozen.
