I also made szechuan cucumber salad today. My favorite restaurant that makes this went out of business so I am working hard trying to replicate the exact recipe. It's not easy!
kirby cycumber, fresh ginger, fresh garlic, red peppers, allspice, anise stars, hot pepper oil, rice vinegar. kosher salt, cracked pepper.
I do not have my camera so I had to use my treo to take this picture...Surgery is scheduled for November 1. It will be a pretty difficult recovery but certainly tolerable. I am not allowed in a car for 4 weeks after it and not allowed to do anything during those 4 weeks at all. I may have the possibility of getting my computer at home so that I can work from home after that time. I would love to get my life back as soon as possible.
I dropped my lap top several nights ago. Now my monitor is turning white pixel by pixel. In a panic ( which is always a great way to deal with problems) I purchased a new one. I won't have it until late October so I hope this one holds on for dear life until then. Going online is pretty much my only cure of boredom here at home.
