here you go!  i stole it off a chat room, so i have no idea who to give credit to.  it is pretty much dead on.  (but i make it with chicken and not cat...)(LOLZ)
 
 
 
chicken chow mein (NNJ style)
 
Growing up, my best friend's family owned the most popular Chinese restaurant in the area (Northern New Jersey). Here's their basic recipe for Chicken Chow Mein:
 
1. Peanut Oil in heated Wok
 
2. Minced Garlic
 
3. Ground Pork .....browned
 
4. Sherry / Shao Xing Wine
 
5. Chicken Stock
 
6. Vegetables.....Celery, Onions, Bok Choy Cabbage (White Only) and Bean Sprouts
 
7. Season ......Soy Sauce, Salt and a pinch of Ground White Pepper
 
8. Cornstarch Slurry
 
9. Topped with Diced White Meat Chicken
 
This was the classic preparation for Cantonese cooking in NY/NJ area restaurants and take-outs in the 50's- 80's.
 
As an added bonus, if you use the basic preparations above....garlic, ground pork, chicken stock and slurry, once thickend, add a broken egg and sliced scallions and you now have Lobster Sauce. At the time of the step where you add the ground pork, if you add shrimp, you will have Shrimp in Lobster Sauce. If you add a cut up Maine Lobster, you will have Lobster Cantonese.

for the crispy 'tink' noodles:  i use the tinkyada fettucini noodles, but you could use any that you like.  make noodles as package directs, then lay them out in a single layer on a rack for like, 2-3 hours.  then i toss them in cornstarch and fry them in canola oil.  sprinkle with salt after you fry them.  

 

husband likes them better than the 'real' thing :)

Oh i wish i could have some of the stuff you guys are making. Too busy to cook at the moment.

 

I've got... 3-6 papers to do (ranging from 2 -21 pages), going over homework i thought i was fully completed, studying for three finals, and doing one take home final.

 

This stupid cold really set me back. I had planned on doing most of the papers this past week, but no <_<

 

I'm not much of a procrastinator though. I get a lot of homework during the week and weekend. And reading. Lots and lots of reading.

You can do it Shadow...isn't this the semester with over 20 units?

 

So dinner got changed around while I was taking care of Mom -- Hubby didn't hear me when I laid out da plan.   So the fresh bread I made in prep for French Onion Soup will keep until Monday for a redo. Good news is he defrosted stew meat (he did here the "we" need to defrost meat part of my instruction) and is now creating beef stew...who I am I to stop progress.

 

Poured my wine to toast Irish -- Cheers!!!!

Well i just put the cake in the oven.

 

I subbed oil for butter and it appeared to be a bit more thinner. However, in the past it has always been a bit more dryer when it was like that, so maybe this fixes that issue.

i just put a 9x12 pineapple upside down cake in the oven -- happy men circling the kitchen island :)

 

The rest of dinner is Mexican as it is Cinco de Mayo!!!

 

Crispy Carnitas

Corn Tortillas -- usually let the hubby have flour with carnitas...but with Dad and Sis at the table -- well just too many glutenie fingers hanging about for my comfort.

Homemade Refried Beans -- hubby makes pintos from scratch then smashes the hell out of 'em.

Salad

 

Oh and of course -- Margaritas -- blended for Dad and Sis -- and I think oldest is going to have his first today.  On the rocks for hubby -- may have to have an itsy-bitsy taste of his -- we'll see after I check the margie mix -- haven't made them in WAY too long!!!

 

Happy Cinco de Mayo Dinner Peeps :wub:

Happy Cinco de Mayo!!

 

I make margaritas from scratch, but I am sure the mix will be okay for you.  

 

I am making chicken nachos for the hubs, grilled tilapia and mango salsa for me.

I have been avoiding carbs, but today, I'm going for some black beans and rice.

(between the gym and dumpster hurling, I'm really hungry and needing something with "oomph" :lol: )

 

Wish I had some pineapple upside down cake.... -_- this is when I really really really wish we lived in that compound

thinger...imagine the dinners we could "pot luck"? zoiks.

Just took the cake out of the oven. It raised a lot more than previous ones did. I'm impressed. The cooking time was longer though (1 hr 15 min). I bet it would cook to the time that the box says if i lived at sea level. :lol:
