Eating Her Curds…
Bean Curds That Is.
Okay, okay, when my husband read the menu to Little Chinese Kitchen over the phone as I was sitting in 5:00 traffic trying to get home this evening, I honestly had no clue what I was ordering when I said I would take the Vegetable Bean Curd Soup. So once I got home with our take-out, I popped open my quart of soup expecting to find some sort of bean soup and to my surprise there were no beans per se, but I found vegetables and tofu floating about the brothy liquid. I proceeded to google bean curd on my iphone to ensure I had the right soup and found that bean curds are nothing more than tofu—curds separated and pressed from the whey in soy milk. Subsequently, I realized I had in fact eaten bean curds before just never knowing it by any other name. I ate half of the quart and plan on having the rest for lunch tomorrow.
Additionally, I wanted moo shu chicken, but when I picked up the food the lady said moo shu pork was ordered, not chicken. Chris said he ordered the chicken, but the woman sounded busy while ordering so maybe she misunderstood. Luckily, it was mainly stir fried cabbage with small amounts of pork. I topped two of the thin pancake sheets with the stir fry mixture and a drizzle of hoisin sauce.
Wrapped up like a burrito.
I have way too much moo shu pork leftover; hopefully Chris will eat it later in the week.
As for breakfast, I have yet to get a new jar of peanut butter, so have been using almond butter (which is about gone also) and Peanut Butter & Company Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter.
Really, this Dark Chocolate PB is not my favorite and I could do without, but it served the purpose topped with half a plum and cinnamon. The other half of the plum was consumed on the spot.
Lunch was thoroughly enjoyable today. I ate a turkey wrap with reduced fat vegetable cream cheese and sliced celery pieces. On the side, I enjoyed my fave Fage Greek Yogurt with Honey.
Let’s see, I also snacked on a Trader Joe’s Nutty Chocolate Granola Bar after school and just finished up a mug of hot chocolate. I shared my snack bars at the meeting I hosted after school today and they were a hit. The Kind Bar seemed to be the one everyone preferred.
