Soy sauce chicken wings made in soy sauce with brown sugar to get that caramel brown color:
Wok fried large prawns seasoned simply with scallions, salt, and pepper:
Sliced lotus root stewed with shitake mushrooms. If you've never had lotus root, it's good! Takes on the flavor of whatever sauce it's in. It's kinda crunchy and starchy.
And she gave me the leftovers. Thanks, Mom!
Buddy had a good time too. He had lots of space to roam and parked himself in his favorite spot by the back door. He stood guard most of Saturday staring for…squirrels. I know he’s bred for that type of thing, but the dog went so nutso every time a chipmunk or squirrel scurried by.
Later, during one of our usual Target runs, we picked up a “realistic” chipmunk dog toy. The hubs favored the raccoon but it looked *too* realistic for me, lest I come out of the bedroom in the morning and think I see roadkill on my living room floor.
