Peanut Butter Noodle Time

It’s been a long time since my last “Food Blog Post”. This was mainly due to my Chinese mother-in-law staying three-month at our apartment. She was doing all the cooking and made such a mess in the kitchen that I did not even wanted to enter the kitchen anymore let alone take pictures on how she prepared food. Now after she is already one month gone I finally got around taking some pictures of my wife’s cooking skills.

This one is called Peanut Butter Noodles 花生凉面 and can be quickly prepared within 15 min. The noodles themselves are not handmade by my wife butjust simple spaghetti noodles from the supermarket. The sauce for the noodle is as the name already implies mostly peanut butter, seasoned with garlic, ginger, vinegar, soya sauce and other dark Chinese kitchen magic. Usually my wife only uses cucumber to give the noodles a fresh taste as otherwise it would be just too soggy but this time she added also some fresh beans. The dish can be eaten both cold and warm but I usually prefer this one when the noodles are still a bit warm, I am just not in for the greasy taste which comes after they get cold.

What are your quick and easy dishes?

Pancake Day

The previous blog post about the food my wife makes was rather well received so I convinced my wife to make another wonderful dish.

As before I have to mention  that the ingredients and different steps are not written down on purpose as I just have no clue at all (I only can boil water anything more than that is exceeding my abilities). In case you are interested in more information just leave a comment and I shall do my best to figure those things out.

For this wonderful day I present you:

西葫芦饼 Zucchini pancakes with 酱油醋蒜调味汁soya sauce with vinegar, garlic and chili. In the last picture you see the final dish together with a cold cucumber side dish and some congee.

 

Pancakes? Pancakes! Do you like them and how many different styles and version do you know?

A noodle Day

As I have promised before I am starting to post every now and then some pictures of the food my wife is preparing.

The ingredients and different steps are not written down on purpose as I just have no clue at all (I only can boil water anything more than that is exceeding my abilities). In case you are interested in more information just leave a comment and I shall do my best to figure those things out.

For today I present you my favorites:

西红柿鸡蛋面 and 油泼面 as for many of you this won’t mean anything lets call them just tomato-egg noodles and oil noodles as I have no clue about their English names.

In the pictures you can see several steps of preparing those noodles. However the stuff you see in the pan with the tomatoes etc is for my very favorite tomato-egg noodles while I left out the last step for the oil noodles (my wife likes them more than I …) as it involves pouring hot oil over the noodles covered in green onions and powdered spices.

What are your favorite “Asian” dishes?
