After a long day of work in the freezer room and a lovely hour-long massage/chiro appointment, Jack and I headed out for January’s Supper Club. This month we all converged on a szechuan restaurant for a Chinese New Year family style meal. There was more than enough food to go around and in the spirit of What I Ate Wednesday…
…have a look at the offerings –>
Fish and lamb stew
Szechuan shrimp with crispy rice
Garlic baby bok choy
Garlic long beans
Twice baked fish
Baby pork ribs
Sesame balls with red bean paste
Some puff-like thing filled with fruit flavored tapioca
I’m not a huge fan of spicy food so it was hard for me to taste much of anything beyond “hot” after a few bites. Because of this my favorites of the night were probably the fish and the garlic beans, the former because it was the first thing I had (while I still had active taste buds) and the latter because they were salty, non-spicy, and garlicky as all get out. I took the remainders from our table home.
I can’t wait to dig into these for leftovers sometime soon. Delicious! In other news today, Jack and I got a Sam’s Club membership. The first thing I bought: Aunt Millie’s bread, two for $3.28. Considering that most stores sell ONE load of this bread for that price, I only need to buy bread 7 times (14 loaves) over the course of the entire year for this membership to pay for itself in savings. Cool huh? Well everyone, I am off to bed. I need to be at work by 8am tomorrow which means I need to catch the 7:30am shuttle. See you all later! Sleep well.
Questions: Do you like spicy food?
Which dish do you think would have been your fav?
