Over the last couple of nights at home with family in TN, I cooked a bunch of Chinese food, because apparently the Chinese stuff I cook is dad’s favorite damned thing ever :)
Night one was spicy veggie lo mein with carrots, bell peppers, snow peas, onions, cabbage, and green onions, plus kung pao chicken with peppers, celery, and peanuts–still no actual szechuan peppercorns, sorry @Timex
. Oh, and fried wonton strips.
Night two saw the addition of General Tso’s chicken, broccoli and pepper beef stir fry, fried rice, and crab rangoons. It was a fucking feast. Also a gigantic bitch to prepare, since mom also
wanted to cook 2lbs of red beans into Cajun red beans and rice to freeze for the next couple of months till I visit again. And I’d made waffles that morning. . .
I am fucking exhausted, yo :)
