When I showed the menu to Jim, he made the worst face when I showed him the Shrimp toasts, so I didn't make them. I look forward to reading some of the other gutsy blogs to see if it was good. It may show up on our table another time.
I don't usually have very good luck with Chinese food, so I'm always looking for new recipes.
|I usually have poor luck with batter dipped anything. But I really liked this batter. It used beer and I don't know if that was the key or what, but I will use this recipe again when I need to batter-dip and fry something.|
Someone recently told me that the key to good Chinese is Asian fish sauce. As is the case for most good things, my local Wal Mart doesn't carry that, so I didn't get to use it in my noodles. But I'll keep my eyes open and pick it up next time I'm in a bigger store.
|I thought both recipes were alright. Not too exciting, though. They were not at all rejected by the family. I will for sure make the sweet and sour chicken again. Perhaps more sauce next time.|
