Monday dinner: Buttermilk chicken, stir-fried broccoli with garlic, brown rice.
Tuesday dinner: Fried rice: onions, brown rice, eggs, broccoli (stir-fried first with garlic), and the Essential but Surprise Ingredient of…ketchup. This was my first time pouring the uncooked, beaten eggs directly over the rice instead of cooking the egg separately, and I’m not sure if it made my fried rice moister than usual. And, another buttermilk chicken drumstick.
Wednesday dinner: More fried rice, more chicken drumstick.
Thursday dinner: Thanksgiving, duh.
Friday dinner: By mom: soup (turkey drumsticks, napa cabbage, cellophane noodles (fen3 si1, 粉絲); stir-fry of tomatoes, green bell peppers and green onions; stir-fry of pressed tofu (do4 gan1, 豆干), chicken, pickled (preserved?) mustard greens (zha4 cai4, 榨菜).
Saturday dinner: Leftover stir-fried rice noodles (cao3 mi2 fen3, 炒米粉) and leftover rotisserie chicken.
Sunday dinner: Brown rice, mom’s stir-fry of pressed tofu/chicken/mustard greens, leftover rotisserie chicken.
