I have a confession to make. I really need to stop snapping pictures with my iPhone. Laziness!
Last night, I broke out the wok and made my General Tso’s Chicken. I haven’t made this in so long! It is seriously delicious.
That picture is so blurry and I think I knew it when I took it but I didn’t want to take another one because I would have to wait another 5 seconds to eat. That’s sad. But, mmmm everyone really enjoyed it. We served the chicken over jasmine rice and with a side of asparagus.
As I was making this meal, I was thinking how much I enjoy cooking at home. When I was in college, my friends and I would always have dinner parties. We would coordinate and all bring a dish or wine. I love that I can get in the kitchen and make enchiladas and margaritas and feel like I’m in Mexico (okay, sort of – once the tequila kicks in ). I love cooking a marinara sauce all day on a Sunday and enjoying a glass of red. Don’t get me wrong – getting dressed up and eating out once in a while is so fun and so necessary. However, I really love cooking international dishes at home. I like controlling the seasoning and flavor of a dish. And lets face it: eating home is a heck of a lot cheaper.
Question: So tell me, what is your favorite dish to make at home that you would normally order out in a restaurant/for takeout?
Have a lovely day!
