Chinese Sundaes

My friend Jill posted about Chinese Sundaes, and she said they are also called Hawaiian Haystacks, but I had never heard of either one. Jill's post explains it all very nicely HERE.

I really liked this idea, because it's quick and it's easy, and it offers a variety of choices so there should be at least a few things even picky eaters have to choose from.
I boiled some Chinese noodles, and heated up some rice, and I did a quick stir-fry of some shredded vegetables and red cabbage, and also some chicken with garlic, onions, and peppers (I also heated some plain chicken), we also had bacon, pineapple, olives, and shredded cheese for toppings, I like eating this way so everyone gets to choose their preference.

We all enjoyed it a lot and I am thinking of doing this for Jayden's Birthday party! Thanks, Jill, for another good idea!

Also, I have a favor to ask of anyone reading here, I am asking you to please keep my niece Jillian in your prayers, Jillian suffers from Crohn's Disease and she will be undergoing surgery this afternoon. Please join me in asking God to Build a Wall of His Loving Protection around Jill and her surgeons and caretakers, and for a quick, successful surgery, and a quick healing process for Jill.
Thank you.


  1. I really like the background you've selected, Eileen!

    I'm joining you in prayer for Jillian...

    ...and thanking you for reminding me about "Haystacks" as we call them. Our are just a little different - start with base of crumbled Saltine crackers (THESE are really important though they sound strange), then rice, then more taco-like toppings, olives, cheese, peanuts, etc. We used to "do" them a LOT! I think I"ll try YOURS for our Home Connection gathering at our house next Sunday night!

  2. Oh...perfect! My kind of meal.....absolutely wonderful, and I'm doing this!!!
    Thanks soooo much.

  3. Be sure to let us know how your niece is after her surgery. We are sending lots of love and prayers.

  6. I already read your newest post so know that Jill is doing very well, thank you God.
    Your table looks wonderful, I love these kind of meals Eileen, delicious.....:-)Hugs

  7. Eileen, I am so sorry that I didn't see your prayer request. I got interrupted, came back and left a comment or thought I did, but it's not here. This has been one insane day, and I'm glad it's over for your niece and all of you and for me. Anyhow, I hope and pray that she will continue to improve.



  8. Hurray Hurray You made them!!
    Interesting that you boil your Chinese noodles. We just use the packaged crisp kind. But that's what I like about this can just make it anyway you like.
