We were originally going to be having friends over for dinner today but they cancelled for now. However I stuck with the meal plan and made a variety of Asian style dishes.
In a way, it was good to have a sort of “dress rehearsal” so I can plan for the dinner party. This took me an hour and a half from start to finish. If I had guests, I would do more in advance, like make the yeasted dough for the dumplings, cook the rice and chop the vegetables.
This is one meal the boys don’t complain about, though they don’t eat as much of the veg as I’d like.
On the plate, there is
Chinese dumpling (Taiwanese cabbage, mushrooms, bok choy inside)
Vegan Spicy “chicken” (commercial product made from soy in Taiwan)
Stir fried vegetables
Tofu and broccoli
