Day 3

Szechuan Noodles with Peanut Sauce
A tasty change from the everyday. Only the noodles were cooked. Most of the work was cutting vegetables into matchstick sized slivers. It has a fresh flavor that’s great for a warm summer’s day. I’m always skeptical of vegetarian meals; I’m making this one again. We primarily made this because we had leftover napa cabbage from last week, but I’m glad we did. So good.

The recipe says it makes 6 servings—for 6 sumo wrestlers after spending 40 days in the Gobi. We have at least 8 meals. I tried to call Jordan and Holly to pawn off some. They weren’t home.

The wine tonight is another $10 bottle. Jan is keeping me in line. I sometimes long for the days when $17 was the low end. I can feel my palette slipping away. I’m sure that has nothing to do with the smoking.

Peach and Blueberry Crisp
Jan’s mom took a microwave cooking class in the ’80s. Apparently this recipe is the only one that was good. We usually make it with apples or rhubarb. This is better.
