Leftovers For Days

21 Feb

After the Housewarming, there were surprisingly very few leftovers thanks to doggy bags sent home with the fam. We did, however, have a dozen or so uncooked stuffed bitter melon and a container of the Thit Kho (braised pork with eggs). Perfect for dinners and lunches over the next few days. Also they give me a chance to show you what they look like since I was remiss in taking photos the day of.

I’ve now learned that it’s better to remove soups from the stove, or enterprising old ladies may fire up the burners to heat their individual bowl. And leave it on for the rest of the day. I probably turned off the burner under boiling pots of soup three or four times throughout the day. Unfortunately this meant the Thit Kho, in particular, was overcooked and the meat not as tender. See how dark the meat is? Should be that way. Still pretty tasty, though. There are those spring rolls, too. Crisped up (mostly) in a 230 degree oven for 10 minutes or so.
