i don’t know what’s been going on, but i’ve been on a total asian kick the last few days. could be thoughts of my parents’ anniversary have taken me back to all those delicious meals my mom would whip up so effortlessly, i don’t know.
in the last week, i’ve made my easy peasy pantry spicy peanut noodles (will share the recipe next week for meatless monday); yakisoba (inspired by mark bittman’s the minimalist article in the NYT…made mine with tofu, leftover veggies and fresh sugar snap peas from my boyfriend’s mom’s garden – delicious!); and now i’m drooling over michael natkin’s (a.k.a. herbivoracious) scrumptious veggie gyozas! gyoza is pretty easy to make and i find filling and folding the gyoza skins quite relaxing. hey, while i’m thinking about it, i make a pretty mean harumaki (japanese spring roll) too…hmmm, the grocery list is getting longer! okay, focus…a little rice, some kirin beer and dinner is served!
a fun p.s.: michael is giving away a digital kitchen scale – enter to win by becoming a fan on his FB page (details here)…deadline is today, so head on over!
