Yesterday was hectic in our lives, but it was all good. We had so many things to do outside the house that we ended up stopping for dinner before Wegman’s. Since we loved the Faux Hunan Duck from Jesse Wong’s in Hunt Valley (a local chain) we decided to stop there again tonight.
We had our favorite soup, Miso. The soup contained fresh shitakes, which we both love. There really is nothing like a nice light miso soup to start a meal. I think it is my favorite soup.
Then we had cucumber and avocado sushi rolls. If only they had been made with brown rice, they would have been perfect. I always marvel and how tight sushi chefs can wrap the rolls. Apparently I need more sushi rolling practice.
Once again we ordered the Hunan Duck with Faux Duck. The texture of the duck is tender, but very “meaty”. The menu says it is layers of tofu skin but I haven’t figured out how they make this. However, I do plan to play around with the idea. Making the tofu skin should be easy. All I need to do is figure out how they form the layers of skin into the faux meat. This is definitely a project I will be working on for a while. I love experimenting in the kitchen.
I will be back later today with a recipe or two. I still have a few backlogged recipes to post. For now I am off to exercise. Have a great day and I will talk to you all later.
