Remember that I told you I was doing a lot more cooking? Besides cooking up recipes from my magazines, I am learning to cook a full meal from a different country each month. Through the month I will cook different recipes that when combined are a meal.
For January I chose to do China because of Chinese New Year and because we love Chinese food. For the rest of the year I will work on a meal from a country I have visited.
A LONG time ago when I was basically a new homemaker, I took a semester of Chinese cooking classes. Somewhere along the line I misplaced my recipes and only recently found them. So I decided to revisit those recipes. Wow. I was such a novice cook I didn't realize how poorly the recipes were written up. So while I will normally have the recipes with my blog post, this time I'll have to rewrite the recipes a bit later and update this post.
But until then, here is the photo journal of my month of Chinese:
Pork Egg Rolls
Won Ton Soup
Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry
(Lu didn't want to teach this recipe to the class. She said it was "just leftovers!"
