Proud members of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy. We strongly believe in personal freedom, responsibility, and gun rights. We also believe in the 90/10 theory. That means that 10% of the people have 90% of the talent. Unfortunately, we are not in the 10% category. However, the rest of us are still better than 90% of the politicians.

Dinner - Steak and Cauliflower

Tonight I made Steak and Cauliflower from Mum's recipe. It's really good, really easy and really fast.  What could be better?

1 1/2 lbs lean round steak
1 head cauliflower, chopped to suit
8 oz. fresh mushrooms, sliced
2 cans diced tomatoes (I use the ones with peppers)
2 tbsp fresh grated ginger root
2 cloves garlic
2 tbsp Hoisin sauce or Oyster sauce
1/4 tsp coriander
Soy sauce, salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp whatever oil

Cut steak into bite size pieces and brown in oil. Dump in the rest of the ingredients, except mushrooms, and cook until done, about half hour. Add mushrooms for last ten minutes. Serve over rice.

Peter's Dad is Chinese and his Mum learned to cook from Dad's grandfather after moving in with his family at 16.  One of her favorite tales is of Peter in elementary school popping up to answer the teacher's question, "Has anyone in class ever eaten any foreign food?"

Peter's answer was, " Oh, yes, we had roast beef and potatoes just last weekend."
