Dinner Friday, 1-31-14 ~ Happy Chinese New Year!

It's the Year of the Horse. So much for the leftover ham and bean soup I was planning for supper...

Now I'm thinking we might do spring rolls, and stir-fry shrimp and broccoli. Probably a bit of Asian soup also, to use up the last of the snow peas and chicken broth.

What are you making/taking for tonight? Or are you still planning?

Braised country-style pork ribs, black-eye peas, steamed spinach, iced tea and the last of the homemade rice pudding for dessert.

I think tonight is ideal for ordering take out Chinese food.

Pace yourself. The lunar new year is 15 days long.

I am making wonton soup with my best friend's wontons, some BBQ pork TB will pick up at the Asian market and broccoli. It's a meal in itself but I think I will also do some chicken & mushroom chow mien as well.

Not Chinese at all. I have limited tolerance for all that slicing and chopping. Makes me laugh when magazine cookery writers enthuse about stir fries for a quick meal. The frying might be quick but they don't tell you about the half hour of all the precision cutting if veg and meat.

Remains of the pea and ham soup followed by a red bell pepper stuffed with a mixture of cooked rice and some left over ragu and "baked" in the microwave. I don't do a lot of "from scratch" cooking in the m/wave but I think it does bell peppers really well. Seems to bring out the sweetness.

Not christened the pudding yet but probably an orange.

Bought some turbot fillets, which I'll either grill or bake very simply with a splash of lemon and oil. Probably spinach and dandelion greens to accompany, with buttered baby new potatoes.
