    This is very close to the recipe (I don't always measure it out) I make and I just adjust the Sambal to taste:

    Thanks for the links.

    I have no idea what I'm fixing for supper tonight. I'm tempted to make sloppy joes, it's been awhile since we had those.

    Tonight's dinner will be leftovers from my friend's party last night. It was catered food from this Italian place... so... dang.... good. Luckily for me she always over orders so I'll be taking all that out shortly.

    I think I am going to make some spaghetti. It's cheap and easy. Probably make some soup tomorrow, then I don't have to cook for the rest of the week.

    LOL I am making spaghetti tonight. Is it true whole wheat pasta is better for you? I bought all whole wheat pasta at the store the other night. AND I found a sauce with no onions. I forget who makes it but it's sundried tomatoes and basil. I hope it's good cause usually i have to make my own sauce. I wish I had thought to thaw out some hamburger to mix in the sauce..that would have been good. I don't like thawing it in the microwave.

    I think tomorrow I may make Chicken Potpie....that's PA Dutch Potpie not the nasty stuff in a crust. Guess I better get a chicken out of the freezer.

    I like to freeze my burger and chicken in freezer baggies. Then I can just plunk them in a sink full of hot water and they thaw out in about 30 minutes. I put a pound or so in a baggie, seal it up, and then press it flat so it freezes quick and thaws quick. Same with chicken breasts, just put a couple of nice size ones in the baggie and freeze 'em flat, not stacked.

    I like pot pie, with a crust or without. Share your recipe?
