    I did not know there were vegetarians in Texas, either.

    I thought they all starved to death years ago.

    Oh, dear. Did I just say that out loud? icon_cool.gif

    I don't visit this site often, (don't know why) but I do cook an Asian dish about once a week.

    So glad you 'stumbled' upon us. wave.gif
    If you cook Asain once a week, you might want to check out our monthly tag games.
    This month it is Magic Mushrooms. You don't need to have relevant recipes posted to play.

    Peggy.........I haven't visited the "magic mushrooms " yet but I have a pkg. of dried shitake mushrooms I bought EONS ago......(about 9 mo. probably) . I think it was for hot and sour soup. But anyway, I'm going there now to see if I can find a good recipe. I hope they are still good....don't know the shelf life of a package of mushrooms.
    My DH and I used to eat at a Chinese restaurant very close to us, that left the area. (the shopping mall took over their outside building for a parking lot) For Shame! It was a great restaurant. We have tried a gazillion recipes, but none have compared to fact, I've decided that I don't even like hot and sour soup after trying these recipes.
    Maybe I can find something similar to theirs. It had shrimp and pork, and don't remember what else.Anyway, am glad to find some support if I have questions........ Thanks....Donna

    Donna, your dried mushrooms should be fine.
    Lots of Asian ingredients keep very well.

    Zaar has 61 recipes for Hot and Sour Soup.
    Maybe one will come close to the restaurant version you so loved.
    You can sort the list by ingredient to find the ones that include shrimp.

    Thanks Peggy..............will do. It's been a long day for me, and I probably won't get to it till tomorrow.......but if I ever find that DH would eat it for 3 meals a day. (maybe I should start a search for the restaurant owner and hold him down until he gives up the recipe.... icon_rolleyes.gif ) I know he lives here and retired to enjoy life and play golf.. do you suppose I could learn to play golf and haunt all the golf courses icon_question.gif icon_idea.gif icon_idea.gif
    icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif Well will let you know what I find out. Donna

    Well, I guess I hit on this by accident, just when it started out! icon_lol.gif I've played a few Asian tag games, but am sitting out the mushroom one. Only 2 out of 5 family members will touch mushrooms! Myself and my son. I got into Asian cooking by way of my Japanese enamored DD. She loves anything Japanese (as I've probably said b4). I came across Vegetable Miso Soup and she said she wants to try it. BTW, Peggy, wanna give that exchange student a nudge again? icon_lol.gif By ancestry, I'm 100% German and live near a city in WI that's got a good German heritage. I just like to eat! icon_smile.gif We have quite a few good Asian markets here. The one I like to go to is small and quaint, but the clerk is really fun. And they usu. have what I'm looking for. I got a bamboo steamer from them, but haven't used it as much as I'd like. BTW Are you still considering Asian desserts as a tag topic? Potsie, what is that icon of yours now? And how the heck did you get that pic of Hercules without getting bit??? icon_lol.gif We had a German Shepherd. She could have had Hercules for lunch! icon_lol.gif Had to put her down several years ago - due to age. My DD still cries if she thinks of her.

    Hi WI Cheesehead wave.gif
    I'll keep nudging Yumi to write. She's such an escape artist.
    Earlier today I mentioned the need to do dishes and she vanished. icon_rolleyes.gif
    But I reeled her in. Teenagers!
    I might not make many mushroom recipes either.
    I love them but our two exchange students don't.
    I'll do lunch dishes for me and hubby while the kids are at school.

    As for my history with Asian food. I don't suppose I had anything other
    than my mother's chop suey (which I never really liked) as I was growing up.
    My mother cooked a wide variety of food, but never a wide variety of cuisines.
    I think the chop suey was one of the two of her dishes I never liked.

    Thirty years ago, I met/fell in love with Indian food and branched out from there.
    Lived in Burma 1984-87 and enjoyed wonderful meals there and in the wider the region.
    Plus, Australia is blessed with wonderful Asian markets and restaurants. yummy.gif

    Potsie, I will be traveling to Fort Worth TX in October. Any good steak or barbecue restaurants in DFW area you like to recommend. I will be meeting my aunt and cousins for the first time and though I asked her about any great eats, she told me she is vegetarian. Had no idea there were vegetarians in Texas.

    Fort Worth is about an hour drive from Dallas. I don't know much about the restaurant scene in Fort Worth. Sorry, dear.

    Except... there is a place called the Love Shack that has, reportedly, the best burgers in the USA.

    Write me with details about your visit... Maybe I can find an excuse to drive to Fort Worth so we can grab a greasy burger and share an order of French fries. icon_cool.gif

    Wow, thank you for the video to Love Shack. Those burgers look great - especially with ice cold beer. I love to drink as well as eat! To live is to eat good food, drink good drinks and be with people who enjoy life even doing simple things.

    Potsie, don't worry too much about joining me. I know you are a busy person. I will only be there for 4 full days arriving 10/9 and leaving 10/14. We talked about going to the Stockyard in Fort Worth and now we know where we will eat - love Love Shack. If you have time, that's great, but don't stretch yourself for me.

    I do have a hard time planning things too far in advance because of running the step brat and my mother on errands and doctor appointments and soccer practice etc.

    And besides... I'm sure that your family have better things planned for your visit than to have lunch with a weird man of questionable taste and virtue. And too many dogs!

    Just teasing. Seriously... as Oct approaches I will have a better idea of my schedule. It might work out that I may be able to see you. I've never met any of my Zaar friends and it would be fun.

    I have some bad personal news. If we are gonna have a chat thread we aren't always going to have light and fuzzy feel good posts.

    My beloved Dugan has a family emergency and is at the hospital in Fort Worth. His nephew was beaten severely and is on life support. The family will be removing life support in the next hour or so because his head injuries are so traumatic.

    He was involved in a fight with two other men over some sort of altercation regarding his girlfriend. The details are a bit sketchy but he was defending her honor after these young men (all parties were 18yo) made inappropriate sexual advances towards her. The fight escalated and resulted in Anthony being struck in the head with a pipe and beaten with a tire iron. He will not recover from his injuries.

    The young men involved are adults and in jail. The charges against them will be upgraded to homicide instead of deadly assault. There were several witnesses. They will not get away with it.

    I feel so helpless. I was at the hospital this morning but had to return home. Dugan stayed. The doctors recommended pulling the plug and after much deliberation the family has agreed.

    My heart is breaking. He was a smart, funny, charming young man and wanted to be a fireman. Any minute now I am gonna receive a phone call from Dugan telling me that his nephew is gone.

    Dugan and I love that boy. He has been a part of our household for years. He was a mentor/big brother for our son and always accompanied us on camping trips, amusement park excursions, shopping, eating...

    ...ok I'm starting to lose it.

    I'm gonna take a few minutes to compose myself.

    I've never posted a "I need a hug" thread before but today... I could use a hug. Even if it is virtual.

    I thought they all starved to death years ago.

    Oh, dear. Did I just say that out loud?

    You did it again! That got me giggling. You're naughty! icon_smile.gif

    As for me, I've been bouncing around this forum for a while, although I tend to remain quiet. icon_redface.gif

    How did I end up cooking Asian food? My husband is first generation American born Vietnamese. In fact, his family got here shortly before he was born. We don't live near his family (Odd for the first born son, I know) So I started cooking recipes his sister gave me. Now we eat asian food 4-7x a week. icon_lol.gif I mostly cook it, as I have a 3 yr old DS with many allergies (Including nuts, dairy, & eggs) So we don't eat out often. (Although it's more than we should)

    That about sums it up. icon_smile.gif

    *HUGS Potsie*

    Your family will be in our thoughts and prayers. I'm so sorry you are having to go through this. Please take care of you & your family.

    I'm so sorry.......sometimes life hands us more than we can handle at a given moment. I think having friends here is so wonderful......we know them almost as well as our own family sometimes ....and they can be of comfort when we need them too.
    I pray for whatever peace and comfort you can find right now and I will be thinking of you and the family. Donna

    Oh....forgot ...........HUG ! icon_smile.gif

    My heart is breaking for Dugan, you and the whole family of this young man. grouphug.gif grouphug.gif grouphug.gif
    This is such a terrible tragedy and a needless loss.
    The perpetrators have been apprehended and will be punished (some small comfort),
    but that does not return this loved nephew to his family and friends.
    I am glad you and Dugan are there for one another -- and that we can be here for you, too.
