Just finished my breakfast of stir-fried veggies in my 12-inch cast iron skillet, and they taste great.

I don't remember stir-frying vegetables before, but since I've started eating more of them, a week or so ago, I put quite a few frozen packages of mixed veggies in my shopping cart, one of which was labeled asian stir-fry.  I stir-fried it and the flavor was much better than the veggies I'd been steaming in the microwave.

I think the taste improvement is due to the browning of the sugars, or Maillard reaction.

Sounds yummy. I'm still having a love affair with my 10 inch cast iron skillet. I got mine at Dollar General at $6.50 and they are a bit higher at the Walton place. Properly tempered these are non-stick, easy to clean up, and should last a lifetime. Temper them at 350 for an hour with an oil coating on them. When you clean them always add a light oil coating again. I clean mine is less than 5 minutes.

Used up some of my strawberries and rhubarb to make a "crisp" (or "crunch"). It's much easier than making a pie, not to mention just as delicious.

Tonight, it'll be lasagna for supper. It takes a lot of preparation, but I can eat leftovers for many meals to come. I gotta use up old ricotta and cottage cheese. That's mainly why I'm making it.

Daniel, I desire the best outcome for you and Ning.

My guess was wrong.  I don't remember hearing the symbols ' and " meaning minutes and seconds although I could have and forgotten.  I've only ever used them to mean feet and inches.

 Well, I do vaguely remember them also meaning angular measurements: arcminutes and arc seconds.  I had to look those up on Wikipedia.  That site also said they're used in musical notation to represent octaves from middle C upwards, which use not only the prime symbols ' and ", but 3 and 4 of those marks as well.

Sorry to hear about Ning. Good luck with altering your diets.

And hey! I knew what I was saying with 3-4' ! Doesn't ' mean minutes and " mean seconds? Anyway, sorry for the confusion.

Daniel, I am sorry to learn of Ning's health emergency. I know pulmonary embolism is a bloodclot in the lungs but I have no idea of the presenting symptoms. I looked up mefication, found nothing and asume you mean that greens interfere with his medication. I can't imagine supper without greens! Is he able to eat yellow, orange, or red vegetables? How are you doing? Cooking without salt is not something that sounds very easy to do, and not easy to learn to enjoy! 

When Dad was on a restricted salt diet he consumed a freightening amont of sugar. I tried using more herbs and lemons, however, they did not satisfy his hunger for salt.

Daniel, thinking of you and Ning and hoping for the best outcome for him.  Hugs to you guys!

That sounds very serious! Best wishes to both of you, Daniel and Ning! A change of diet can be difficult, because you begin to like the new tastes only later, but there might be pleasant surprises too.

Yes, thanks, Spud.  

Chris, I too wondered what those notations meant.  They weren't mysterious foreign symbols for you alone.  

Randy, the asparagus recipe sounds very good.

Thanks, Spud, some things look mysterious to me.
