We haven't had new recipe Sunday for a very long time. I was excited for this one. All dishes were 5 stars, yummy in our tummy, delish on a dish, great on a plate. We will definitely be making these all again in our house.
First up: Appetizer by my mom, Wontons w/ dipping sauce
Next up, I made chow mein, it is my favorite thing to eat at Chinese restaurants and I have never attempted to make it. I thought this was the perfect chance. It turned out great, I loved it. (I may or may not have had three servings of it) Click here for the recipe (again from one of my favorite recipe blogs, her recipes never disappoint) I made mine veggie w/ a package of cabbage/carrot mix, mushrooms, onions, bean sprouts and celery. I sauted the veggies in oil, added about half of the sauce then removed the veggies from the pan. I then tossed the noodles with the remainder of the sauce and then tossed all veggies in with the noodles. I used three 6 ounce packages of chow mein noodles and doubled the sauce recipe here.
Main dish by me. I chose sweet and sour chicken and it was so good! It took some effort (I was in the kitchen for an hour and a half to make the chicken and the chow mein, that includes cleaning all dishes too =) ) Well worth the effort. Click here for the recipe, it is seriously good. I did add green peppers, onions and pineapple chunks to it but next time I would add them just to the end 20 minutes or so of cooking so they still have some crunch.
Lets talk Dessert: Dawn made us almond joy cookies and a joy they were! Again, I may or may not have had three. All diets go out the window on Sunday dinners around here. The recipe for these will soon be on the recipe blog, whats4dessert.blogspot.com
