Fish, fruit, and Egg Foo Young

I'm a little all over the place now :-/. Lance requested more fish, so I'm making some....customers want more fruit, so I'm making some....and I've been eating alot of local style Chinese food, so I'm making some. I also made ice cream yesterday (for a wonderful longtime customer, who also asked me to stock her seafood market), which drove me ape shit!! Not the ice cream itself, but the tubs!! I went to the hardware store to buy a wooden dowel, which I brought home and preceded to saw into 1/2" pieces and hollow out with my Dremel. I swear, it took two hours!! I was covered with wood dust and my hand turned into a frozen claw. I needed to lie down afterwards (oh, I also have a nasty cold). Once the tubs are complete, I'll post pics. Just waiting for the ice cream scoops to arrive!
