A Little Steamer Banquet:)
Many many many years ago.. there was an asian market where I met the nicest young woman.. I bought new products for cooking from her..one day I went to the store and she was gone..I was happy to find out from another shopkeeper that she and her husband had opened their own store and I was given the location..
Many ingredients and quite a few baskets later..I was a loyal patron and she the sweetest of shopowners~ And honest!! So honest!
I had leftover chicken..I like that..takes the guessing out of the steaming:)
I chopped up my chicken.. w/ green onions.. julienned carrots.. slivered fresh baby bok choy..ginger ..garlic..sesame oil.. soya..
and placed the little mountains of tasty mix.. in my pre~bought dumpling wrappers from my now asian market~on top of some fresh bok choy in the steamers...
Used my daughters gift of chopsticks..and favorite dipping sauces:)
It was a divine little dinner..
With the sun finally peeking out amidst the daylily blooms~
I could eat this at least 3 times a week!
Tastes fresh.. and healthy!
Even the clean up is a breeze~
She closed her store last year..luckily I found another.. but after all those years it will take me time to feel the same ~Takes time to form bonds..I miss her cheerful spirit and tips and tricks.She also taught at the back of the store~ Limitless energy.A good role model for hard work~
Everytime I see my baskets I think of her! There I go again w/ things that remind me of people!
Next week? Shrimp maybe?
