Relax. This is not a fashion statement, though looking at this dress reminded me of the song lyrics '...If I had a million dollars, I'll buy you a dress, but not a real green dress, that's cruel...' Oh, I'm sure there's lots of pretty green dresses out there too.And I'm not going green in honor of St. Patrick's day yet. Although it would be fun to have another wild and crazy party again.
In case you are wondering, I am not turning green from eating way too much chocolate (done that before), or going green as in environmental issues, although I do recycle and my house is a build-green house and every little bit helps.
Nope. This time I am going green in terms of vegtables....Like these beautiful pea sprouts I bought from the asian market.I had always done the salad route in terms of vegtables especially for the hot summer months. But my gf Rosie's visit had left me with wonderful advice and lessons in adding more greens in my cooking. So I have been introducing more green, leafy vegtables to my family's meal at least twice a week. And here's a picture that made it all worthwhile! My kid chomping on her veggies. Who knew my kid would like kai lan?!?Kai Lan with oyster sauce
Blanch kai lan and put into ice-cold bath. Drain. Heat up oil in wok and stir fry garlic til fragrant. Add kai lan and cook for 1-2 mins. Add oyster sauce, cornstarch mixture for another 1-2 mins and serve.
