On My Hearth: Chinese Eat-In
I'm trying to cut down on processed foods, but this new dinner kit by Wanchai Ferry happened to be on sale ($4.79 each and BOGO) at my local grocery store and the price was too good to resist. My Mom adores cashew chicken so I scooped up one of that flavor thinking it would be easy enough for Dad to prepare since he's doing all of the cooking at this point.
Since Beren loves sweet & sour chicken, I figured it would make a quick weekday meal for him. I'm going to save the Jasmine rice that's included and instead use up the leftover wedding rice, figure that after today it's going to get tossed. I also have just-cut pineapple that will add a nice fresh flavor to the meal. I'll let you know how it turns out.
Update: Both Beren and I thought this was very tasty, well worth the few bucks it cost us. Just as good as our favorite take-out, the only thing missing was the fortune cookie!
