In Cantonese it's Gong Hey Fat Choy, so to celebrate,
We're going to have Shoyu Chicken, steamed white Rice and my Quick Cucumber Kim Chee.
How are you celebrating in food?

Happy happy!

I have a 3lb. corned beef in the Instant Pot. I never did one under pressure so got my fingers crossed. If it doesn't turn out good I will cry. It was $3.50/lb. Once it comes to pressure it should only take 90 minutes till tender. Then 3 minutes for the potatoes and cabbage. Wish me luck.

Happy whatever you said!

With all this talk about mushroom soup, I'm thinking it will be that. Got some lovely chicken/veg broth I made from various things yesterday, and I just squeezed it out. Should make a nice mushroom soup.

Gong Hey Fat Choy back atcha Kgirl!

In keeping with the theme, I'm making Asian Ramen Coleslaw. I haven't made it for years and I'll be adding some shredded chicken to the mix. Here's a recipe..I sprinkle the dry Ramen on the servings, rather than in the bowl.

I'm also hungry for Cream of Mushroom Soup, so I might make that too.

I have leftover lobster risotto from yesterday, so I'm going to try making arancini (fried rice balls) for the first time. I just watched Giada's video, so I think I'm ready! Giada's Arancini di Riso Video : Food Network

I don't have any fresh, or aged, mozzarella, so I'll stuff them with some Havarti. I also have extra uncooked asparagus, so I'll roast that again (so good that way) and pan-sear a couple pork chops. I'm thinking I might do them with a Parmesan crust, to go with the Italian theme of the arancini

Happy New Year, K'girl! I'll plan on a Chinese meal for tomorrow

Cock-a-doodle doo! Happiness, prosperity and long life to you all.

We are making Beef and Broccoli, sorta- pretty much following a PPO recipe he filmed over on You tube a while ago. Also fried rice with bacon, peas and pea pods using an un-written recipe we've been making for over 45 years, (which varies, of course.) The only thing that makes it "our recipe" is including bacon.

Not very Chinese, but Saturday celebratory--For dessert we are having vanilla ice cream with home-made chocolate amaretto sauce.

PPO's beef and broccoli recipe:

We decided to do a precook meals for next week day, so we started sirloin flap meat to shred for Norman Van Aken's Vaca Frita with tropical tuber hash. The meat gets seared off and then gets cooked in what is basically a Spanish court bouillon until it's shreddable. I've wanted to try oxtail and there's a recipe for oxtail ragu with semolina gnocchi, so the ragu is also busily cooking.

With all that going on, we decided to make some inroads into the leftovers that seem to be overtaking the fridge.

Strangest thing. I made exactly two servings of mushroom soup! I usually cook enough for eight. This has never happened. DH was not happy, he went back for another serving, and there wasn't any left.

It was delicious!
