  1. To the Beach!

    If I found that kitchen in a holiday rental, I might never go home.
  2. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

    Made a soupy lunch. Knife cut noodles, pork, Shanghai bok choy, in a chicken broth with chilli, ginger and white pepper.
  3. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Thai-style red curry with chicken and aubergine/eggplant (the long thin Asian type). With rice and a side of bok choy.
  4. Refrigerator Magnets

    I would like to point out, in my pathetic defence, that I have never bought a fridge magnet in my life. They were all gifts. Honest your honour!
  5. Food funnies

    Only mildly amusing, but a suitable riposte to the KFC chicken shortage. https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2018/feb/22/is-southern-fried-squirrel-the-answer-to-kfcs-extraordinary-chicken-shortage

    I'm so glad you put "Chinese" in quote marks. Sounds revolting. Plus point is that their website is as dysfunctional as their kitchen. Their menu page is empty.
  7. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    I had to Google it. Never heard the term before.
  8. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

    蝴蝶面 (hú dié miàn), literally 'butterfly' pasta are the Chinese equivalent of the Italian farfalle. I'm not going to get into who came up with them first, but I'd wager heavily that Marco Polo had nothing to do with it! Anyway, here they are with slivered chicken stir fried with garlic, ginger, chilli, scallions and soy sauce. Simple and quick again.
  9. Refrigerator Magnets

    I guess I'm in the kindergarten class.
  10. Where? Many humans don't eat sweet things at the end of meals. Some, like me never eat dessert at all. Here in China, sweet things can turn up at any point in the meal. I'm sorry, but I don't understand the rest of your post.
  11. Working fine for me. Try again. I've re-pasted it, but it's the same as before.
  12. I didn't know where to put this. "Food Funnies" seemed appropriate, but then I thought no. It's not funny. It's sad and ridiculous. As someone commented
