What’s for Dinner?
We’re just on the heels of Dumpling Week in Portland. We’ve got so many outstanding local options, I’ll use my veggies as a delicious and crunchy accompanying act. I also look forward to Super Bowl Sunday, whether I care about the game or not (not), just as an excuse to try a new chili recipe. This week I’ll also honor the Year of the Monkey, on which we are about to embark! My veggies will find the perfect home in authentic Chinese dishes from noted and honored chef Ceclia Chiang.
