Spring roll, crispy wonton and chicken drumstick (the drumstick wasn’t actually vegan...I probably should have asked them to miss it out or substitute it, but I forgot when ordering).
My Corn Tofu soup. I realised when eating this that it has been years since I have eaten any kind of soup in a Chinese restaurant. I am never quite convinced that it will be vegetarian, but in this case I was pretty sure!
Wee G had Wonton soup. He also tried mine and said mine was better...ha ha!!
“Chicken” curry. This was Wee G’s main course. He really enjoyed it as he always loves getting curry at the Chinese places at home. This was a little spicier than most at home, but he still loved it!
For my main, I got Asian Flavoured Tofu. It came with a choice of sauce and I chose home style. It was so nice...a little sweet and a little spicy and a whole lot yummy! I really love fried tofu from the Chinese, but I prefer a little less tofu and a little more veggies on my plate, so I will have to find something more veggielicous next time...any excuse to go back!!
I never got a photo of the ice cream...we were too busy eating it!! I had cherry soy ice cream and Wee G had blueberry...yum!
And today is Pancake Day which is traditionally the day to use up all the stuff you’re supposed to give up for lent. I think it’s generally called Fat Tuesday (Mardi Gras) here in the U.S. We are not religious, but always happy to eat pancakes!! We had these yesterday for brunch as Wee G had the day off work. I always use this recipe (halved, and omitting the oil) for our pancakes and I usually use about half whole wheat flour and half white flour. Yesterday I made them with all whole wheat pastry flour and they were so good!! I only recently discovered whole wheat pastry flour and now I am using it for everything! For about the first six mouthfuls all I could get out of Wee G was “Mmmmmmmmmmmm”, so I think he liked them!
We had these with some apple, mango and kiwi fruit, a drizzle of maple syrup and a sprinkle of cinnamon!
