It’s been too long, old friend. Friday night dinner courtesy of the best chef I know, mi madre 👩👧Lemon and thyme roasted chicken, roasted potatoes, sautéed string beans and mushrooms, and homemade challah
It ain't fancy, but it works? A couple of $9.95 lunch specials from one of the surprisingly few Chinese restaurants in the area.
In the foreground are some string beans with blade sheared noodles. We got it non-spicy so the little one could enjoy them too. And she likes noodles, as kids do. .
In the background is the sweet and sour pork with five grain rice. I know S+S pork can feel like one of those neon colored food court specials sometimes, but there's a comfort in that familiarity. Especially with pineapple chunks.
Not pictured are the couple bowls of hot and sour soup that came with our lunch specials, as well as an order of xiaolongbao soup dumplings.
How's your week coming along?
Air fried chicken nuggets are baaack😍 shoutout to @nut_free_meg bc ever since I found her recipe, I’ve been hooked! Coated the chicken in @bobsredmill arrowroot and a bunch of seasonings. Put em in the fryer at 360° 20 minutes flipping halfway through. While that was going I made some brown rice which is mixed with my new fave, zesty cilantro sauce from @saucylipsfoods and then steamed a side of string beans topped with @traderjoes balsamic & fig dressing😋
