Oyster Sauce & Incense

Wow it has been over 24 hours since I touched a computer. This time it was actually by choice. I was the host of this month's Cooking Light supper club. I was busy all weekend cleaning and finishing little house projects. Not like we haven't lived here since last July.

The menu was:
Vegetable Dumplings
Stir Fry Broccoli w/cashews

Lort Cha (Pork w/ noodles)

Maybe by then I will have finally put up curtains.
