I'm writing this up Sunday night and I wanted to share that in honor of Chinese New Year, we had "Chinese" Chicken Salad and potstickers for dinner. It's the first Chinese New Year in a long time that we haven't had a Chinese banquet dinner either with family or friends. I did miss that a little bit, but our not-so-authentic dinner hit the spot. I've had a craving for Chinese Chicken Salad lately. I like it when the dressing is spicy from the addition of Coleman's powdered mustard and I like lots of fresh cilantro in it, too. Bunny, my preschooler, got a big kick out of having a celebratory meal that she wasn't expecting.
Here's what's up this week. What are you cooking?:
- Mexican Monday—Tacos, refried pinto beans with shredded cheese on top
- Tuesday—Jambalaya with andouille sausage and peas, sauteed crispy cabbage with bacon
- Wednesday (Sandwich night)—chicken salad sandwiches, homemade cream of broccoli soup
- Thursday—Fish, probably wild-caught cod, haricot verts, something potato-y
- Friday—take out
- Saturday—date night
- Sunday—Kalbi (Korean beef short-ribs) with quick kimchi, rice, lettuce wraps
Also this week Bunny and I are going to bake four loaves of crusty bread (to eat and freeze) and will probably make a batch of chicken matzo soup for Wallie, my toddler, who has a terribly cold. I'm sure she'd like something warm to drink other than Korean "baby" barley tea (I can't help buying it, I love the box) and yuzu/citron tea.
