Thanksgiving Leftovers as Vietnamese Rice Porridge – Cháo Gà Lôi

25 Nov

I eat Thanksgiving dishes once, maybe two times per year and make the most of it. Still, with piles of leftovers, I can only make a Thanksgiving plate so many times. My side of the family had an early Thanksgiving before the one we host at our home with my husband’s family, so today would have been day four of Thanksgiving on repeat. No thanks.

My daughter and I are also a little under the weather, so I decided to make a pot of turkey cháo, Vietnamese rice porridge. My mother in law calls turkey gà lôi, or a “dragging chicken”. As in, a chicken too big to carry, so instead, drag.

Whatever you call it, turkey cháo is delicious.

Noodles with Shrimp, Pork and Chives Bánh Phở Xào Tôm Thịt Hẹ

16 Nov

I love Chinese Chives. They are crisp and garlicky without being overpowering. One of my favorite side dishes is a simple Chinese Chive Blossom stir fry. But I’m testing some new recipe inspirations as I realize my go to menu rotation is a little tired and, shockingly, doesn’t include any dry noodles.

Enter Bánh Phở Xào Tôm Thịt Hẹ, or Rice Noodles with Shrimp, Pork and Chives. This was so very simple and satisfying. Even Anh loved it at first bite. He remembers eating on a bed of steamed bean sprouts, but being pregnant, I have entirely eliminated the veggie from my plate.

We ate this alone, because life/work, and it was a bit light. Would recommend serving with a grilled meat or ga ro ti for a more hearty meal.

New Vietnamese Vegetable Stir Fry Dishes

22 Oct

Despite the lack of new content, I have been in the kitchen since summer. Recipes to date have been on repeat, but I tried a couple of new dishes tonight that turned out pretty well. I’m {finally} in the second trimester for bebe #2 and have been craving fresh flavors and *lots* of vegetables. (Much better than the last time where bland, white, starchy foods were all I could handle.) These aren’t perfect, but experimentation takes a few iterations. Hopefully this trend continues and will lead to more time in the kitchen!
