Gung Hey Fat Choy!.
Wishing a very happy new year to all my Chinese readers!!
We don't have the frequent flyer miles to celebrate with you, so Matt and I prepared out own feast.
Hot and Spicy Cucumbers
Chunks of peeled and seeded cucumber stir fried with soy sauce, sugar, garlic, ginger and hot chile paste. Pretty tasty.
Vegetarian Hot-and-Sour Soup
Too many indgredients to mention (we couldn't find dried lily buds!)...I'm not usually a fan of this soup, but I liked this one.
Simple and wonderful; Chinese egg noodles with mung bean sprouts, water chestnuts and snow peas, cooked with vegetable broth, sesame oil, and soy sauce.
I'm always a bit 'iffy' when it comes to thin noodles...I cook my pastas on the safe side of al dente...but I liked these. Better yet? Alex insisted I give him some, and he ate a few fork-fulls. Except, he mostly used his hands...!
Kung Pao Chicken with Cashews
Matt often orders Kung Pao Chicken (this recipe is actually for shrimp), but I've never tried it...till today.
I really liked it...mine was made with Veat bites...and surprising us yet again, Alex asked for the peppers on my plate! Red, green and yellow, he pretended they were a stop light.
Then he ate them. Goofy kid.
Hope everyone had a wonderful day...
