What’s for Dinner?
Holi-days, travel days, snow, ice, sleet, and slush days…so many crazy and unexpected days got on the way of my normal veggie routine recently! What better way to launch back into the groove than celebrating the Chinese New Year and the Year of the Rooster! My veggies will find the perfect home in authentic chinese dishes from noted and honored chef Ceclia Chiang. Upon opening my Hood River Organic veggie box, I was just in awe of the fresh, local produce that continues to grow in our region, even in this dark depth of winter.
