fish fragrant braised eggplant with tofu skin and woodear mushrooms.
i was really craving that kind of saucy eggplant the other day and i found out that my local chinese place no longer delivers to my house. so i tried to make it at home with mixed success. i’m out of cornstarch and i fear large amounts of oil so the sauce isn’t as think and luscious as takeout but the flavor is quite good.
an exceptionally delicious plucot, varietal forgotten. the had a tasting at new seasons and i was pleased to like this one equally for flavor and aesthetics. so dull on the outside and brilliant on the inside.
chopped pork sandwich and coleslaw from cannon’s rib express. i got the spicy sauce, which unpleasantly had these distinguishable red pepper flakes in it, but i would definitely go back for the sweet sauce. $7, for a huge mound of meat.
my mom sent me a package filled with chinese healthfood and now i have 5 packets of mung beans in my cupboard that i knew not how to get rid. this was the best possible option, and quite tasty, but now what? i’m scared to do the sprouting thing.
stir-fried soybeans with pickled mustard greens, chilis and bacon. this dish is supposed to be a condiment/side dish to spice up some rice porridge, etc but in my hands it’s just delicious spicysalty over rice.
