This year’s Valentine’s Day fell on the same day as 元宵节, the last day of Chinese New Year. We always have 元宵节 dinner together with the family, so Jason decided to surprise me with a home-cooked Valentine’s Day lunch the next day. On the menu: Chicken chop with mushroom sauce, “Jack’s Place” baked potatoes and garlic prawns and brocolli. With Pink Moscato! The busy chef at work:
This bowl of noodles blew me away because I couldn’t believe how close to “the real thing” it was. Really, this recipe should be in anyone’s survival kit, you know, just in case you get stranded in some unthinkable place away from Bak Chor Mee, at least you won’t die (or feel like dying).
