This unimpressive bowl ...

...is actually a sad attempt at this dish.



One of the things that I dislike about Asian dishes is how often it calls for fresh ingredients in such small qualities. For example, I have great issues with green onion. When I buy it, it's at least 3 bunches. I think I use 2 stalks per meal, at the most. I usually stick them in my fridge, only for them to dry and shrivel up. 


Now, for this dish, I brought a few types of eggs. I still have way too many salted duck eggs and thousand year eggs. Perhaps it's time to revisit this dish!



Also, happy new year's eve!

    1. I find that most Chinese people like them... not sure about other Asians though.

  14. I get where you are coming from. I buy lots of potatoes yet end up wasting half of them, or end up eating them every day for a week. Same with fruit and veg really. xo
