Kung Pao Chicken; doggie update — 5 Comments

  1. I LOVE kung pau chicken! The only major difference I can see between yours and ours is that ours has lots and lots of green onions. But I like the idea of using leeks! (We use the recipe from “A Taste of Chinatown” by Joie Warner. However, my sister’s favourite Kung Pau chicken (translated as “gongbau jiding”) is in “Mrs. Chiang’s Szechwan Cookbook” by Ellen Schrecker (ISBN: 006015828X) – a great cookbook! I think you’d really like it. It’s available on ebooks. Here is the preface to the first edition of the book that I have:

    I must admit that I never thought of serving Kung Pau chicken with spinach. What a great idea. (We usually serve it with stir-fried broccoli.)

    Ha. It sounds like you are a few steps further than I teaching the dogs to bring back the ball than I am with trying to teach our cat to stay off the table whether we can see him or not. At this point, he leaps off obediently the moment he sees that we see him….

  2. I love your recipe for Kung Pao chicken, especially the addition of spinach. So glad that your weather is warming up. The girls look so clean and tidy. Wish we lived where we could let our Daisy run free. When she is free she is a naughty girl. We had to buy our neighbor a new pool cover last year after Daisy attempted to walk on it and scratched big holes in it. Luckily the insurance company paid for it.

  3. Cora has no interest in balls, either. But she LOVES to chase another dog who is chasing a ball. Different strokes for different folks, I guess. 🙂

  4. Elizabeth, I had been hoping for green garlic, but there wasn’t any yet…. and green onions are even harder to find, thus the leeks. And the recipe I was looking at had spinach – I thought it was perfect. Didn’t even have rice LOL Thanks for the link. We had a cat like that once LOL

    Penny, they don’t run free – I keep trying to let them off leash in our field and they keep running after rabbits – real or imaginary. They’ll be for for 4 or 5 walks, then gone LOL I keep trying.

    Zoomie, they play with the ball together, just not with me…. Unless I run with it, then they chase. I don’t want to be tackled by the two of them LOL
