Yay. I finally made chicken long rice. The noodles were a little bit overcooked, but considering I hadn't made the dish in about a decade, I think I did ok. I will improve next time around. Definitely does need some veggies in it, though. Maybe I'll see if dvorak would find onions, celery, and carrots offensive, since he didn't like the idea of mushrooms. But man, that was good.

And, I have a batch of haupia cooling on the counter. Yay!

yay!
three cheers for chicken long rice!

er, it takes vegetables? What else goes in it, other than chicken, and... rice?

And mmm, mushrooms are yummo. Pity that dv doesn't agree.

Hee. Yeah, some tender-crisp veggies would be good. The way I made it last night, you brown chicken and garlic in oil, and then add in chicken broth and minched ginger and simmer for a long time. Then, you add in the rehydrated long rice (which is really noodles, you might know them as cellophane noodles?) and continue simmering for about 10-15 minutes. I'm thinking I wanna add some veggies in at the same time as I add the noodles.

Yeah, well, he's pretty anti-vegetable, which makes cooking interesting sometimes. <meri> Whoo! Veggie stir fry with tofu! <dvorak> Have fun!
