I know we are not the only ones who keep a few "meals in a bag" in their freezer, but how many prepare them on the EGG?

I wanted to practise with my new WOK, and besides, I had oral surgery last week and still can't eat anything real crunchy, so____

I am really liking the WOK, makes for healthy eating and the cooks go very fast. Best of all, my bride likes it too :cheer: :cheer:
Thanks for looking, have a great day :)

    Thanks Kent, it was a little better than what we expected and the veggies are softer than if cooked fresh, so with stitches in my mouth still it worked out fine :laugh:

    That is how most of my stir fry cooks start with frozen veggies in a bag. Saute the meat I'm using, then toss in the veggies and sauce for a nice quick meal without having to chop up all the fresh veggies. Good looking cook. Jer

    Thanks for the tip, I am just getting in to this stir fry thing, and really enjoying it :)

    One step away from cheating. If you had placed your microwave oven inside the egg and pretended to use the egg, then it would be cheating.

    For lunch today I warmed the leftovers in the microwave, does that count? :laugh:

    heh. No that doesn't count. Big waste of lump just to warm up a leftover!

    If it is done on the egg and tastes good, it's not cheating!
    BTW, oral surgery............implant?

    Capt Frank, the reason I guessed that was I had 2 stuck in abour two weeks ago; get the stitches out Thursday.
    Hope yours go well.........

    I am doing fine, no problems whatsoever, go back for my post-op visit Wednesday, I hope yours are doing OK as well.
    I will be glad to get back to eating some charred meat :laugh:

    I bought a couple Papa Murphy's pizzas in the last couple weeks, and while they're not as good as mine made from scratch, I can't make a pizza from scratch for $7.

    Yeah, Capt, just be real cool while you are brushing around that area for a few weeks and you should be fine.

    BTW, like Botch says, Pappa Murphy's pizza is real good on the BGE. My better half and I do Saturday Vigil Mass at our local church, and PM pizza is so cool in the evenings afterward. We are on about a 5 week streak of regular size all meat Pappa Murphys!!

    :P :P
