Chinese BBQ duck - my grocer picked it up in Wpg for me... :-)
I am a good customer!
Bacon, tomato, Thai basil on a toasted bagel:
Great breakfast before we hit the stores a final time - for more Xmas
BBQ duck, Thai basil, on a crispy onion pancake
- lunch after more heavy shopping with China and Ryan :-)
Curry chicken in puff pastry - with salsa - appetizer...
Slow-roast Thai lamb shanks - baby taters, fresh green peppercorns.
Very tender and juicy.
Note to self: leave out the juiced lime skin chunks.
They gave a bitter after-taste.
Use small amount of lime zest instead.
Papa, Mama, and baby butter tarts...
Second batch - better - more filling and added chopped pecans.
The pastry is "layered" and flakey enough to be used for Chinese egg
tarts, I think!
A cross section...filling is just nicely set!
They will be perfect eaten while frozen. LOL!
Last bit of "healthy food" before the "Feasts of Hillmans"!
Toasted tomato, Thai basil, and avocado sandwich drizzled with a bit
of lime juice :-)
Chinese proverbs:"Eat bitter to taste sweet"
"Sour, sweet, bitter, pungent, all must be tasted"
Bitter melon stir-fried with beef and black bean garlic sauce - served
over pan fried udon noodles.
Using the egg rings I picked up for China and Ryan...
Eggs for Bill's back bacon and egg McMuffin.
Got his last bite!
Mine...hmmm...what does one call this...deconstructed egg McMuffin
sans muffin but with avocado, lime, tomato and Thai basil? Back bacon
A sprinkle of Slap Ya Mama makes it all taste good!
Ah...here's the English muffin - spread with avocado instead of butter,
topped with a wedge of tomato and Thai basil.
These are from Canadian Tire.
After washing them, they were placed in an unusual spot - by the telephone?!
So they got left behind - to my delight ;-)
Moroccan Chicken and Dates - eaten with spaghetti squash and carrot
My plate of Moroccan chicken with added brocoslaw
dressed with mango chipotle dressing, toasted walnuts and dried cherries...
Good stuff all around!
Shrimp in BBQ sauce and fresh green peppercorns.
Steamed Chinese beef meatballs...
Korean sweet potato noodles with shitake mushrooms
and other vegetables.
