I'm really in the mood to eat. Not eat a lot, I'm just looking forward to making dinner and eating! Probably because I didn't really cook for myself last night while Ken was working--I warmed up the sauerkraut Mom brought me, ate another pickled egg, and had a piece of cheesecake. It all tasted pretty good to me, but it's not the same as cooking. Last night, I got some beef out of the freezer, planning on doing a roast. But when I went to the store this morning, sliced mushrooms were on sale, and I was struck by a sudden hankering for stir fry. I bought some pea pods, too, and some teriyaki sauce, so stir fry it is. I have some egg rolls in the freezer, and I'll make some sticky rice. For some reason, that just sounds really good to me.
That got me to thinking again that I want a wok. I just use a large frying pan now, but I think I'd like a real live wok. I used to have an electric wok, but it pretty much just sat on the top of the fridge and collected dust. I think a pan would be more practical, and I could use it for other things if I needed to. I'm not quite sure where I'll put it, but one of my projects after I stop working will be a complete reorganization of the kitchen cabinets. I want to get some racks for the cupboards so I can get a handle on the various baking pans, lids, etc. It's driving me crazy! We have a small kitchen, and our plans to expand a bit are a few years off, so I need to be clever in my kitchen storage. Time to put my anal retentive Virgo-ness to work!
I'll stay busy for a while, I think, because I'd say that every closet and storage place in the house needs some major reorganization. (Except for Ken's closet--he just wants to go through his clothes and see what he should donate.) Odd that I'm suddenly in spring-cleaning mode, because it doesn't feel very spring-like at the moment. It may be in the mid-50's, but the wind is still crazy and it feels wintry.
I got off the subject--imagine that! So does everyone have a wok? Do you love it? Is it an indispensable part of your cookware? Would I be wasting our money to get one? (I won't spend $50 on it or anything--probably $25, tops.) Tell me what you think.
