Food Glorious Food

Since I became pregnant,

I've had a hankering for Asian food. Most of the restaurants here in Abilene offer pseudo-asian, very americanised "chinese food", and so a lot of times, I TRY my hand at making comfort food from home. I've gotten better over the years and I guess the biggest test has been if David would eat them ( seeing how they might not be things he might see at a Chinese Buffet place, for example ), and surprisingly enough, he likes most of them! I make sure not to cook anything too funky or "out there" though :)

Anyway, the latest Asian food that I've made are...

Char Kuay Teow ( Letti's Version )

Stir Fry Pepper Pork with Bell Pepper and Onion

Stir Fry Baby Bak Choy with Garlic

Stir Fry Green Beans with Pork and "glass noodles"

Chicken and Potato Curry

Tofu and Salted Mustard Greens Soup

Of course, we can't forget last week's Letti Thursday, since this is a food post after all.

Hush Puppies

Salmon Croquettes

Sweet Corn

Brownies with Cheesecake Swirls

My mom came down for New Years so I got a good fill of Vietnamese food. Yum!

Happy Chinese New year!

Hi, Letti, this is Chad, Karen's husband. When I first visited Karen in Singapore back in 2006, I loved the variety of foods I had there. I tried so many different things. The only things I didn't like were fishballs and durian. Karen keeps saying I just had bad fishballs and that I need to have a good one before I can judge(I say the same thing to her about fish and chips!). At a Crystal Jade in Singapore, I tried durian pudding. I got through the first two spoonfuls without a problem, but that third one was,"OK, I can't handle this anymore"!

Happy Chinese New Year to you!
