Weekend Eats Part 3/5: Father's Day Dinner, An Action Shots Spectacular
The night before I had been at Ralph's, and, in addition to the P.F. Chang's frozen meal, I bought a large box of potstickers - as a backup in case the meal had been inedible. But I had eaten the General Chang's Chicken and I thought Cool, I still have a big box of potstickers. There were 25-30 in the box and I thought I could get at least two or three meals out of it in the future, or maybe 5 or 6 snacks.
But I offered to cook some for my dad - and my mom and brother wanted some, too. So I ended up cooking half the box. I pan fried them for two minutes and then added a bit of water, covering the pan and letting the dumplings steam. Then I topped them with diced green onion from the farmers market.
a dinner at Quadrupel in Old Town where Elizabeth, Carla and I had fried shallots as an appetizer. Why not make some? I sliced up two shallots, dipped them in egg, dredged them in flour and fried them in a pan for just a few minutes.
Everyone enjoyed them - although I really should have seasoned the flour more. It was a decent snack, but nothing too special. My brother and I turned our attention to making dinner.
"Doing what?" I asked.
"Burning a piece of spinach."
"We might be taking this whole action shots thing a little far."
