It is impossible to describe what it means for me to have a new stove. All of you must think I have the latest and the greatest of all appliances in my home. Truth is, I have the oldest, the worst, the last legs-until-there's-nothing -left appliances. All these boys of mine: their education, athletics, medical etc etc has taken precedence over everything. But I have been patient and I have not despaired. Night after night of delicious meals AND four cookbooks have come out of my tired little kitchen. Finally I relented (had to)--my fridge lost light and had 2 broken shelves and the stovetop had no power, no heat, no nothing. I purchased all new appliances from GE--every one run-of-the-mill except my stove which is the crown jewel. I love it. Its amazing and you'll hear more from me to come on this one.
Here is the beginning of Thai Fired Rice, starting with chicken (cause thats what I had in the fridge). It built from there ith scallion, garlic, ginger (minced)--cabbage, rice, fish sauce, yum yum. Finish with Lime, cilanto and cucumber.
