Are you hungry yet?

My husband is the cook.  The chef.  Not me.  I open a mean box of Tuna Helper, and I have about 2 things I cook really well.  The rest of our fabulous dining is courtesy of Daddy.  He just seems to know what would work together, what seasonings to add.  I just stand back (and do the dishes after) and wait for the results!!  While I’m standing back watching his chef knife fly, of course, I have my trusty camera and some dermabond

Last night we made a HUUGE batch of stir fry.  Two batches, in fact.  One chicken, and one beef.  He found a HUUGE wok to cook in, and rigged this garbage can cooker to hold it over charcoal.

Once the cooking apparatus was designed, the veggies were cut.  By the way, did I mention it was in the upper 80’s at dinner time.  Not really my idea of grilling weather, but I wasn’t the one standing over the hot food.

Our sauce staples for any good stir fry – oyster sauce and a really good soy sauce.
