Every now and then I have to break out with an Asian dish. I don’t know what it is, but I’ll just be trying to do my thing, following my weekly menu plan and something will “spark me.” That’s how I think of it when I get one of these inspiration/craving kind of things! I see the bottle of soy sauce, maybe there was a commercial on tv or a pic in a magazine, or maybe I just drove by an Asian restaurant…honestly, it doesn’t take much to get me to want to make something, and that’s why I made Beef Chow Fun – Gon Chow Ngau Ho.
Do you need a fun, fresh take on a dish for your Holiday Ham leftovers? Something easy, fast, and crave-worthy? You’re gonna want to rock this Hawaiian Fried Rice. It’s such a completely different take on leftover ham that you’ll look like a genius when you bring this to the table! 🙂
Thanksgiving is just around the corner, so I decided to make a Shortcut Pho Ga Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Soup. And now, I’m sure you’re wondering “What on this side of heaven does Pho Ga have to do with the Great American Turkey Day?” Ahem. Thanksgiving, that is.
Since I’ve been helping out the folks, I’ve been “forced” to step up and find creative ways to use up extra steak. This time, it’s Steak Lo Mein and it HAS to be my best “secondary” steak dish, ever. Hands down.
Chicken Soup! It’s so familiar to so many cultures that I had to try my hand at Pho Ga Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Soup. It’s rich golden stock and rice noodles make the backbone of the soup, but it’s the garnishes that make the meal.
