This dinner was a labor of love, and it was worth it for me. I love Asian Market Noodle Soup! And I thought the mango salad turned out well, also. It can be tricky to judge a mango’s ripeness in the store and I was relieved that the case I bought was in good shape. We cooked the chicken stock on Sunday, simmering it with ginger, cilantro & szechuan peppercorns. We chopped as deftly as we were able, but we are not Iron Chef material. That’s OK, we have other good qualities.
My husband Owen lent a hand – he made the yummy pork mixture and fried a helluva a lot of shallots. Those golden brown savory crunches are totally addictive. He insisted that he could watch the World Cup and still be a productive member of Team Panacea. Italy & Paraguay tied, but we still delivered dinners on time.
