Wendell found this recipe in this week's Crave section of the Star-Advertiser. It can be found here. Instead of making patties, he just stir fried the whole thing so that it could be eaten in a lettuce wrap. Good idea yah! The flavor was very potent, so you don't need to add any additional sauce, although Landon did along with some eggs.

A chair that I had ordered for Landon from Amazon came yesterday. Landon came home from work at around 4:00 pm and when he checked it out saw that the chair had a defective joint piece on one side. We boxed up the chair, and I went online and did a Return Request on the Amazon site. Amazon provided me with a free shipping label. We dropped off the box at a nearby UPS branch at 6:20 pm. At 7:24 pm I received a Refund Confirmation email. Very easy, very efficient, and very amazing.
I have a hard time passing up on Vera Bradley bags, especially when they look brand new and are going for only $1. I don't think I'll be using the items below so I'd like to have a drawing to give them away to one person. The bag in the back is a cooler lunch bag like the one here. Lower left is a mini (6.5 x 4") crossbody/wristlet bag, something like the one here. Lower right is a small coin purse with an outside pocket.
If you're interested you can leave a comment here or email me at JalnaA@aol.com. I'll announce the winner this Sunday, March 26!
Kim Chee III is next to Old Stadium Park on King Street now. Wendell and I went there this past Friday for dinner. I gained 2 pounds from this meal . . . maybe because we ordered CHOKE food. This is the three-choice combination ($14.90). Wendell picked meat jun, tonkatsu and shrimp tempura.
One of the 25-cent DVDs that I got at the swap meet was The Ant Bully. It's from 2006 and I had never heard of it before! It has the voices of Julia Roberts, Nicolas Cage, Meryl Streep and Lily Tomlin! Whaaaat? I liked the movie a lot . . . a definite keeper. Some of you may know that I have a thing for ants. See here for my ant story.
No forget to check out Leslie's AFRICA posts. You can find her blog on my Blog List in the right sidebar or just click here. But first, here are my EXCITING swap meet buys from this past weekend. BTW, due to the closing of the Kam Swap Meet the one at the Aloha Stadium was busier than usual with more sellers and more buyers. These chili peppers were $2.00. 50 cents each for these, and good thing was cheap 'cause the hair catcher thing was too big for the sink that I bought it for. And I don't know where I put the Hello Kitty bag . . . can't find it.
These DVDs were only 25 cents each!!! Can't go wrong yah! And the ones that end up being not-keepers, I'll give to Carolyn at work. She likes getting them.
This was only 50 cents, and I hate to admit this to you but . . . I can't find it either. Must be with the Hello Kitty bag.
These are my "Randy buys". $1.00 each. Randy is disabled and you'll always see him at the swap meet selling trinkets.
These were 2/$5.00.
This is Kona's favorite treat. It's $7.00. The seller also has beef, pork, and chicken jerky. Oh, and dried sweet potato too. Only thing, Kona totally spit out the sweet potato when I gave it to him once. Was so funny.
