We had a date set with our friends N & A for Saturday night. It happened to fall on St. Patrick’s Day, which we didn’t plan. And I only mention this because our meal was very much not Irish, lol. (My husband was the only one wearing green. He said it was intentional but I don’t know if he was joking or not.) Also, since we’re throwing out random pieces of information, can I also say that I always appreciate a good meal? Especially when the host/hostess puts effort into the meal and it turns out fabulously. I’m not a picky eater and I’m also a home cook, so I want to throw around 10000 fist bumps when the host pulls together a meal. It takes a lot of work to have people over for dinner (at least for me), so I’m happy to give credit where it’s due.
A few snapshots from Saturday night –
The appetizer. I really liked these dumplings and said so. A. replied with, “You can get these at Costco.” LOL, now I know!
The spread. In the middle is cod cooked with soy and ginger. The plates surrounding it included bok choy and sauteed greens.
Mongolian beef – this was the star of the night.
Everything was awesome. I ended up bringing crack pie (which may have been too sweet for all of us) and brownies:
I am still crashing from the sugar. 🙂
As far as the meal goes, I’ll be happy to let N & A cook for me anytime. So good!
