Here's my quick & easy Chinese dinner from last night. Mmmm the best part of the evening.
Shelly's Shrimp Egg Foo Young
1 1/2 cups Bean Sprouts
1 Yellow Onion, sliced
12 Large Cooked Shrimp, tails removed & halved
4 Eggs, beaten
a few twists of Black Pepper
2-3 Mushrooms, sliced
1 Tablespoon Corn Starch
1 cup Chicken Broth
3 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
Olive Oil for sauteing
Saute bean sprouts till they just give a bit. About 5 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside. Saute onions till golden. Add bean sprouts back to pan. Add shrimp. Distribute the shrimp around the pan evenly. Pour beaten eggs over. Season with pepper. Cook till golden on bottom.
The choice is yours you can place it under the broiler for a few minutes till golden on top or if you are daring flip it (helps if you cut into 4 pieces) and cook 2 minutes more. Remove from pan and keep warm while you prepare the sauce.
Saute mushrooms till golden. Mix cornstarch, chicken broth and soy sauce together pour into pan with mushrooms. Heat till thickened. Spoon some sauce over each portion of egg foo young.
Leftovers are great heated up. I use this gadget to heat most of my leftovers up. Works great. Keeps everything moist.

So I had my yummy Shrimp Egg Foo Young dinner then got ready for yet another coffee date. For those of you that are out of the dating scene (thank your lucky stars) "grabbing some coffee" is the new first date thing. Unfortunately the coffee is usually the best part of the date. This one was no different.
Nope, no second date is planned. The whole "I'm still married" part was kind of a turn off. What is with guys lining up the next chick before they "officially" have ended the last relationship? "Divorcing" (aka she still is living in the house with you) Why do I keep getting these guys?! Call me when you are "Divorced" (past tense.) Better yet... figure out what went wrong, the part you played in it then call me. Maybe.
No. Actually don't call me...
I officially, on the record and shit, give up on dating. I embrace my crazy cat woman future.
Note to self: Get a cat.
