Parents’ Birthday Dinners - Homemade Fried Rice, Homemade Beef w/ Brocooli and Carvel Ice Cream
@ That Spot Where I Grew Up - Brooklyn, NY
Thoughts: I love my family. and I love embarrassing photos of my family… which I took a ton of, but because I love them so much I’ve decided not to post them. Instead, I’ve chose to highlight some of my dad’s most adventurous cooking for their joint b-day dinner. The theme was Chinese, as we all love it, and he has a wok he’s been dying to use. He made fried rice, which tasted good, but something went screwy with the consistency. He used sticky rice, and it almost turned into a jambalaya of sorts (without the sausage, shrimp and such), so if anyone has tips on perfecting fried rice - please message me. The beef with broccoli was supergood. Using fresh broccoli was fantastic. There was also an egg-roll from Shang-Chai, which he refried in the fry daddy. I need not say more :)
Lastly was the always classic ice cream sunday from Carvel. Man, I miss their vanilla soft-serve…
