Seriously, I could live above a Chinese restaurant, never have to cook again, and be more than OK with that.
One gets tired of paying for all that take out though.
Not to mention, we have yet to find the perfect spot.
We like this and that at place A.
That and this at place B.
So, in my quest to try to fulfill our cravings at home, I did some searching online. From Away had posted this recipe for one of my fave dishes.
I will be making this again. We all ate a bunch!
