Daniel, the spring rolls look delicious.  I could make a whole meal out of spring rolls.....or egg rolls as well.

Randy You're welcome!  We have that at least weekly.  Lately, I've been steaming the potatoes instead of boiling.  I made it last week with russets, but I like red skin or Yukon gold better in that recipe.  I also sometimes add a dose of sriracha for extra zippyiness.

I'll have to try freezing some corn this summer.  I had too much last summer.  Bought some at grocery store last month.  It was terrible.

I wanted to learn something new, so have been working on Thai salad rolls.  They are easy but take some practice to make a tight roll up.  The sauce is peanut butter, soy, and sriracha mixed together, also very easy.

Frozen corn on the cob tastes surprisingly good, Spud. I've never done it before because it takes up so much room. But for some reason, I did it last August. I have about 6 ears left. I used Daniel's recipe for the potato salad. Thanks, Daniel!

Sounds good Randy.  How does the frozen corn taste compared to fresh?

I prepared a "picnic" supper yesterday, even though it is February and I ate indoors.
I made a potato salad and had corn on the cob (from my freezer). My dessert was rhubarb crisp. Sorta fun!

Joan, thanks for the pepper chart.

Daniel, let us know how Ning likes your surprise remodeling. Again, impressive. And the crepes sound good. I made blueberry pancakes.

My daughter invited me for supper last night. She roasted a chicken (theirs), roasted carrots (theirs), and made a big pot of quinoa. We all agreed that not many Hoosiers have ever heard of quinoa, let alone eaten it. I asked Nate about growing it. He said he could, but was afraid it wouldn't sell in our area. Understandable. Too bad.

I think I'll make crepes for breakfast.  My dad called them German Pancakes.  Havent had them in a couple of years.

Thanks Kathy for starting a discussion about ginger!  I bought some for the Spring rolls and Pad Thai tgat I keep thinking about learning to make.

Today I wore myself out working on the pantry I wanted done to surprise Ning when he returns from China.  He's been talking aboug it for a year.  It was an oddly placed former bedroom adjacent to the kitchen.  I tore out the carpeting, painted, washed the cabinets, saved from the old kitchen, installed laminate flooring, replaced the baseboard.  Now its dobe, except for hanging the cabinets on the wall and bringing the shelving here. This was about a week's effort.  Also did yard work.

Too tired to be creative.  Noodle casserole is in the oven.
