So, I’ve been having chestnuts a lot lately in steamed chicken dishes. Tonight, it was MINCED chestnuts mixed with ground pork and slabbed into a huge meat patty
This dish….. is clearly a repetition that lacks some creativity. Nevertheless, it was still yummy.
I love the fruit pomelo, both the flesh and the grind, which is about an inch thick!
Though the flesh is mostly sweet with a bit of tart, the grind is actually bitter if eaten as is. The key to make the grind edible is by soaking it in water overnight to get rid of the bitter taste. Then it is best to prepare it with meat with a lot of water, allowing the grind, which has a sponge like texture, to soak up the broth. Something that usually ends up in the trash can actually tastes so delicious! This is prepared with carrots and ground pork, the fattier kind.
And pan fried salted fish is served on the side.
Food is the best therapy there is!
For lunch, I had two steamed buns. I ate it like it were bagels: split it in half and added half of a banana and pecans pieces in each bun. It was dough-ie and slightly sweet with a nutty/crunch texture.
You’d think I’m nuts if I were to say I have some pine nuts for dessert, wouldn’t you?
Try some Choi Sum, it totally rhymes!
For breakfast today, I had a quick stir-fry chicken with carrots. The flavor is a tad more robust than the steaming version I had yesterday.
I had two entrees for dinner tonight and both involved fish. So, how fishy is that?
For breakfast, I had a sharing size portion of watercress & pork, and steamed chicken over carrots and chestnuts, only to share it with me, myself, and I. Oh, did I mention I also had a sharing size portion of steamed rice as well?
I ended up eating half of everything and saving the half for lunch.
