I am making sugar peas with fried ginger tonight and I both excited and confused. I refuse to pay $11.49 for sesame seed oil. The recipe combines vegetable and sesame seed oil. Can I throw in olive oil 100 percent? Is it a taste thing or a heat thing? Extra credit for responses received in the next half hour. I am starting zuchinni with spaghetti sauce baked with cheese now. I know I will get alot of response, everyone loves the poor man. With the new tax on health care I may be even poorer.
