From Sarah : I love Oriental Appetizers. All of them . Finger food at it’s best. When Danny and I go to an Oriental Restaurant, I will always load up on the appetizers and the sauces. Thanks heavens we don’t go out very often. Plus, our choices are very limited where we live. Since I eat Keto and Heavy Carnivore at home I am eating my favorites a bit different.
Substitutions for Special Diets
THM: If you are on the Trim Healthy Mama plan, this is an S, E, or FP. It’s an S with beef or pork, and E or FP with lean chicken or turkey. Serve with rice, if you like for an E. In my opinion, it tastes best as an S. ……
Keto: sub in more cabbage or another low carb veggie for the carrots.
For AIP or Paleo, use coconut aminos for the tamari. Use coconut sugar or maple syrup or honey for the sweetener.
From Sarah :
I wish Danny enjoyed SPORTS. He understands the games but is not a fan of watching them on TV.
I miss watching the Cubs with my Dad ,dad , my sister and my Grandpa and Grandma Pettengell. My brother may have been there but if he was I really don’t remember it.
Both of my parents were raised in Chicago. Home OF THE CUBS. Forget THAT OTHER TEAM. It didn’t exist. LOL
Then when Bobby came along he watched with us. No one was a bigger fan than Bobby was.
When we lived in Colorado we still went home to Illinois to watch many of the Cub games. Either in St. Louis when they were playing the Cardinals or in Chicago at Wrigley Stadium. Or we cherished the Chicago games. The excitement.
We would either stay with my uncle or at a motel there. We would watch every game we could. Even the practices.
We also toured Chicago while we were there.
When we watched the games at home , we would always fix lots of food.Usually fajitas or nachos and chicken wings. A whole host of foods.

The art of the nacho goes like this… you need a base of chips. Freshly fried is preferred and I’m having a moment with flour tortillas from Old El Paso. EACH chip needs some melted cheese AND queso otherwise it’s pretty much naked just sitting there being sad. Once there is some cheese, in any form on top, you can stick it in the oven, melt everything and then top it with all the fixings! It’s very very very important to load it up – guacamole, pico, carne asada, the works… it needs to be a party on every chip.
