Chinese Takeout-Style Recipes For Christmas Day

“Gail, how rude. Asian would be correct you hick.”

NightShayde on Dec 23, 2011 at 00:39:43

“I agree that the comment below was exceedingly rude. I won't comment further on it, however. To me, it reeks of "troll".
Back on topic. Some of the fondest memories of my childhood were New Years Eve. My mother had an amazing Asian cookbook (well, for the 80's, to keep this in perspective. :) ) Before New Year's eve, we would all pick choices from the book..Mom, Dad, little bro, and myself. We'd go shopping for the ingredients, and then prepare the meal early on New Year's eve. It was SO much fun to do together, and fostered the love for cooking that I still have to this day. When all was prepared, we went to the living room to eat (a treat in itself, as was being allowed to stay up until midnight), and watch "The 3 Stooges" marathon until it was time to count down to the New Year, whereupon my parents allowed my brother and myself to run about like wild things in the living room, tussling like tiger cubs, bouncing on the couch and loudly counting down the seconds to the New Year in our excitement.
Sure, we had our share of mishaps and failed dishes here and there over the years, but everything still managed to taste delicious. Just as in real life, My childhood days are long over (I still do jump on the couch from time to time..*cough*). Whatever your religious (or not) stripe this season, enjoy. :)”
How I Lost 25 Pounds... Without Going to the Gym

How I Lost 25 Pounds... Without Going to the Gym

“Great job Chris, I have been trying dieting since Sept.2 and at 700 calories a day have only lost 42 lbs. No cheating and walking 3 miles a day. I applaude you. You look great”

Alvarask on Dec 13, 2011 at 18:59:22

“Did you know that 1500 calories a day is a starvation diet? You are eating less than HALF of that! You might lose weight, but at such a low intake much of the weight lost will be muscle, and SOME of the muscle you lose will be heart muscle. Please reconsider how much harm you could do to yourself this way.”

dethburger on Dec 9, 2011 at 12:13:11

“700 calories a day is unhealthy.

You are burning lean muscle mass.”

ikeeplearning on Dec 9, 2011 at 12:07:31

“If you are only consuming 700 calories a day, that is a starvation diet. You need to do some work and find out a safer way to lose weight. I believe you are supposed to consume no less than 1500 calories per day as a female. 42 pounds since Sept.2 is a lot! It doesn't sound healthy to me.”

“Only 42 pounds in 4 months? That's amazing, don't downplay it.”

“I agree with Van Nelson. this man is a real coward and does not deserve a son. He lied to his son once and it proably would happen again. He wanted full custody for money not love. I supported my children working 3 jobs when I got a devorce he could have done more.”

“I'm sorry I have to disagree with you. Please do not condemn the man, he did the right thing, being that depressed yet not wanting his son to live on the streets. The person who is the coward is the boy's mother. Where is she and why when given visitation rights she did not excerise them. I pray for both father and son. I hope Steve is found alive and gets the help that he needs. I wonder what you would do in a sitution that this man is in. And don't tell me you would handle things differently, because you don't know until it happens to you. You are not judge and jury.”

“Yes, foreclosure doesnt just show up one day at the door...its a process...a long one here in MN.. Who decides a house is more important then your flesh?? I've been this road and walked down this path in another state with kids.. I was proactive, and did a short sale...
The guy has mental health issues, look at the mother who he was with, she sounds like she isnt all there her self.. Sick attracts sick...Yes, we have alot of mental health issues in America & with a failing President, with lowest ratings ever... is that a reason to dump the kid & run off??”

octavia ash on Aug 27, 2011 at 14:31:26

“You people love to pat yourselves on the back, don't you...don't break your arm though. This man or anybody can't handle stress like others. Maybe he didn't have the strength to go on, with no faith and no help from his fellow neighbors, friends, etc. Life is tough and there are a lot of people that just can't cope. Instead of condemning him, see what you can do to help.”

“You may be right. BUT having been a divorced mom with two small children, it took an awful lot of internal drive and fight to control my depression. I did not realize how bad it was till my kids were in elementary school. I am now on medication and have been since 1997. Severe depression is debilitating no matter how hard you try to fight it. My life would have been a lot easier if I had been diagnosed and treated 15+ years earlier than I was. I have tried to come off the meds thinking that I can master this biological problem without them. It is not possible and the emotional drain and severe depression that accompany those trials was not worth it in the end. Unless you have been diagnosed with severe depression it would be hard to judge this man, who ... if reading the last communication from him is something to go by... is exhibiting all the signs of suicide. Having bouts of depression is normal for most people. BUT having constant, severe, debilitating depression is something totally different. Having the love and support of your husband and children is also a major component in the success you have for leading a fairly normal life with that condition even when being medically treated.”
