    I love to hear some of your creations and ideas. Have you used any unconventional or perhaps it is conventional ingredient to make Asian foods your way?

    For example I have been curious about making Vietnames banh mi sandwiches but never made one with all the traditional ingredients. Tonight I am planning on making some using leftover American style meat loaf I made. I think it can be adapted this way - perhaps not tradtional - but it may come out good and it's a way to introduce my husband to new foods.

    My local Mexican market makes very good chicken or beef fajita mixes (meat, veggies, seasonings). I bought some but Mr Grumpy was up in arms that he did not want Mexican. So I rinsed the mix briefly, chopped it into smaller pieces and made a stir-fry. He loved it..... Men .....

    icon_biggrin.gif icon_biggrin.gif Sounds something like my husband. He's not grumpy but will not eat any salads with vinegar in it (has to be Ranch - we even have to take on trips icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif ), hot and spicy foods (the face he makes is enough to make grown woman laught out loud with while chewing foods), no chilled pasta except macaroni salads, etc. He's picky but he will eat most Japanese foods as long as its not pickles or have vinegar based salads.

    I know if I bring home banh mi he will make faces, but if I say I'm going to make something different with leftovers, he is usually very happy.

    My dear friend, Nancy, is known to ask her family, "What would you like for dinner tonight, Mexican, Chinese or Italian? Then, depending upon the answer she receives, she looks in her pantry for the correct sauces and seasonings. icon_lol.gif Not very authentic, granted, but she can pull together some good meals this way.
