A Couple of Dinners

I found this on Pinterest. You can see the link to the source underneath the title. It was good and easy. It was a little bland for us both, so we added some chili garlic sauce (a gift from my brother-in-law up in Greenbay) to liven it up a little and make it spicy. Oh, and I left out the ginger because I didn't have any and we don't really care for it anyway.

And last night...

The weather was nice so the Captain grilled some hotdogs outside and I made some fresh pico de gallo and spinach dip. Easy-peasy and delish.

I'm slowly crocheting on a few different things. I can't do too much at a time with my shoulder, so it is painfully slow. I'm going to have to break down and go back to the ortho doc that did my other shoulder surgery. It feels to me to be a very similar injury as before. I think I have a tear in my right bicep tendon or it has ripped completely off the shoulder like before. I have lived with it for months and procrastinated on doing anything about it because I swore that the last surgery I had would be my LAST SURGERY, but I fear I was wrong. It has only gotten worse. I need to get it taken care of before retirement and a health insurance change, which means now.

Okay, wah-wah, enough of that. See ya later.


  1. I'm sorry to hear about your injury. I hope you don't need surgery again. Feel better soon. Crack Slaw made me laugh!

  5. You always cook such yummy food.. :))
    Sorry to read you are having trouble with your shoulder.. Lets hope you can have it fixed and back to your old self again :))
    Take care hugs pat :))

  6. Girl, you need to take care of that shoulder. There is LOTS of crochet and knitting to be done! ;)
    This Crack Slaw looks good! And, I do love one dish dinners. blessings ~ tanna

  7. Oh no I am so sorry about the shoulder injury. My friend has had both her shoulders done as her arms sort of come out of socket and it pulls on the muscles.
    Hugs and good luck,

  8. Looks good! Ouch, I hope your shoulder heals soon so you won't have to have surgery.

  9. Both of your dinners look delicious! I hope that you can get your shoulder seen to and sorted out very quickly and make a speedy and good recovery too! xx

  10. Mmmm! Looks good but I know that my redneck husband and grandsons wouldn't like it! Hot dogs look good too! Sorry to hear about your shoulder. Seems the older we get the more we fall apart! Hope you feel better soon!

  11. Go get it seen to Pammy Sue or it will only get worse! Those dinners look yummy, take care and have a great weekend. :) xx

  12. Crack Slaw! That cracked me up. (Pun intended) I love cabbage but I can't eat it since my gallbladder came out. Coleslaw. Yum. Corned beef and cabbage. Yum. But not for me. The hotdogs and accompanying things look really yummy though. There is just something about grilled hotdogs that I could eat three meals a day. I know. I'm crazy.
    I'm so sorry to hear about your shoulder. Anything that's slowing you down on crocheting must be bad. My vote is to get the surgery and get it over with. Nothing is worse than the imagining and worrying. Besides, you'll be able to crochet sooner! I'll be praying for you my friend.

  13. Both those dinners sound good to me and easy! Haven't had a grilled hot dog in ages. The smell of them reminds me of summer and baseball games.

  14. Oh, it sounds iike your shoulder injury is really painful. Have you ever tried putting a small pillow under your arm. A nurse friend of mine suggested this a few years ago and I found it very helpful.
    I love this recipe. The beef and cabbage sound delicious and I'm definitely going to try it.
    Enjoy your weekend.

  15. I am sorry you are in pain. Sending prayers your way....take care. :)

  16. Your crack slaw recipe looks delicious. I love cooked cabbage and almost have my husband convinced that it is edible.

    I'm sorry to hear about your shoulder pain. I hope you won't have to have surgery for it. When I was young I would never have thought about all of the things we would need to get done before retiring. I guess I couldn't think that far ahead. I have to do something about my knees, possibly surgery, and my husband has to get a lot of dental work done. Never dreamed that this was what we would be having to do before retirement.

    I don't remember many older (as in approaching retirement age) people with knee and shoulder problems when I was younger. Did people just not discuss it and suffer silently, or were there fewer people with these problems, or did I just not pay any attention because I was still young.

    At any rate, I hope you can get some relief from your shoulder pain soon.

    Take care.

  18. Sorry to hear you're in pain, Pammy Sue. Constant pain is the worst, it wears you down, and I hope you get help soon. The crack slaw is looks delicious and sounds funny, what more can you ask.

  19. That looked so good, I went home and made cabbage and sausage.
