Added Shaoxing wine, 豆瓣酱 dòu bàn jiàng (Chilli Bean Sauce) and briefly braised in the sauce. Added scallions. Stir fried some: Golden Bamboo Shoots (金竹笋 jīn zhú sǔn) Served with rice.

  13. ... open the fridge, take out the bag of spinach I bought earlier, remove the spinach from the bag, throw the bag on the counter and the spinach in the trash, go to answer a phone call, come back and think the trash needs taking out, take out trash, return to kitchen and start to prepare the ... the ... the bag?

    Linguine alla Vongole (Chinese style) Only Chinese in that I didn't have any white wine other than Shaoxing. Some idiot must have drunk it all. Can't think who.
