    Dinner 2021

    Lily Bulb and Pork Neck Bone soup. I love how simple this soup is, and the "sweetness" (not sugary) the bulbs have. To balance the healthiness of the soup, we had deep fried fish'n'chips! 🤪 I used a beer and soda water batter with baby pickerel fillets. 2 sauces: malt vinegar and curry gravy for the double-fried chips.

    Last of the goodies I grabbed when we were in the city. Ho fun and gai lan with oyster sauce. Picked these tofu skin rolls up, then wasn't sure if they'd work for the stuffed tofu rolls we'd eaten at dim sum. They were pretty crispy when I took them out of the package. Was obvious that I couldn't stuff them as they are, so I soaked them like I would with dried flat tofu skin.

    The trip to Winnipeg last week netted some lovely fresh watercress and guy choy (Chinese mustard greens). Both made lovely soups with pork neckbones and breast bones. Had the long simmered watercress soup for supper after our massive Costco hotdogs for lunch at 3 pm a couple of days ago. Did not need anything else! Had the mustard greens soup as "appetizer" yesterday around 4 pm. Before the s

    Hot dog for lunch: Kirkland / Costco Polish Beef Sausage / weiner, on a Villagio sub bun, diced onion, cilantro, watercress, and a squirt of sweet & spicy mustard. Hubby had Jalapeno peppers with his. I had radishes.

    A dinner I made with leftovers from the care packages that went to the kids. Black Bean Garlic Beef & Bitter Melon over Ho Fun. Good fresh Ho Fun is hard to find. At our local store, they are packed so tightly and vacuum sealed that they basically crumble when they hit the wok. Now, I use the dried noodles that I hydrate before cooking. They retain a bit of chew and so easy to stir-fry. I love the fresh noodles when I can get into the big city Chinese grocery stores.

    Lunch - a riff on Vietnamese Bun Mam using a cube of seasoning from my Chinese grocery store haul yesterday in the big city;-) Also had rice noodles. Added some meatablls from leftover wonton filling, a few little shrimp, Thai basil, fresh beansprouts, Shanghai bok choy, and some green onions. Very satisfying!

    I am pretty sure 2 of my granddaughters are named after characters from Firefly as both sets of parents are big fans. Our oldest granddaughter is Inara Jane (Jane for Tarzan's mate as my husband is a huge Edgar Rice Burroughs fan (creator of Tarzan and John Carter of Mars)and maintains the company's website ERBzine.com . Our youngest granddaughter is River Jade Galaxy. She's the one kidlet who would appreciate everything in the care package! @Shelby: You noticed all the seafood I had in my paella. 😋 I don't have your option of having seafood shipped in, but the frozen works well, and I

    Have not seen our kids or kidlets in Winnipeg (3 hour drive) for many months other than on zoom. Will head in tomorrow for an early Monday morning appointment. Kids hinted for a care package of Ma-Mah's comfort food. I made up wonton filling and froze it in packages to take in so they can make them when they want a feed. The filling has ground pork, shrimp, and waterrchestnut, so it's a tad fancier than usual. Today, I did up 5 dishes, using lots of fermented black beans, garlic, etc, which the kids love: Black bean Garlic Beef & Bitter Melon for daughter and son

    I believe there was a thread called "Regrettable Dinners". This one was in terms of appearance, but actually, tasted not bad. It's one of Jamie Oliver's Quick and Easy 5 ingredients meals - Gnarly Peanut Chicken - a riff on Chicken Satay. We enjoyed the lime, chili, and chunky peanut butter, but if I make it again. I would really thin down the sauce (chunky peanut butter, lime juice, red chilis)and do a heavy drizzle rather than a slather. What attracted my attention was the crisscross scoring on the chicken breast. It looked pretty when seared, and took in all the flavours. It

    The Polar Vortex has finally snapped! Last night was only -20C. Today, we are heading to -15C! So may be, we won't need to add the oven heat to warm both the kitchen and us. Had a chuck roast ready to use along with a large daikon. Cantonese Instant Pot Braised Beef with Daikon. Too lean and not enough chewy bits, but it was lovely over Jasmine rice. My favourite part - the chunks of daikon!

    The best dim sum experience (outside of China) we had was in Boston when we visited our daughter. Walked into the restaurant, and I was transported back to China - the combination of the servers calling out their dishes, the clinking of chopsticks and tea cups, and the chatter - in Cantonese and my village dialect - Toisanese. It was amazing as we hear mainly Mandarin now with the influx of new immigrants. All your sandwiches look amazing, Kim!😋
