Years pass..and that is one good thing. I can look forward to another 365 days. I am not sure..but is there *something* to the 31st of dec ? I feel as though we, as a human race, have consciously decided to fix a date and give it a meaning. A purpose. I find that highly unjust to the rest of the 364 days of the year. And honestly, the rest of the 364 days are when all the excitement happens! But on the 31st we kind of think a little less fondly of the fun days we had and hope that the next would be funner! isn't that a bit cruel? :)
What, for example, is so different between 29th March and 31st Dec? One thing it would do definitely is space out the festive foodie days! And that would have been great too! I definitely think that between Thanksgiving and new year there are way too many events in quick succession. And nothing almost for the next 10 months :( how unfortunate is that?
Like Lewis Carol would say...lets celebrate our unbirthdays ( or in our case un-new years!)...after all we can celebrate more :)
One such celebration we (I mean R and me) had was a weeknight is one of the now- forgotten-past-364 days. But I distinctly remember it to be real fun. And how did we do so? Have dinner. For us dinner is a real fun event --everyday. And we do get upset if it gets side tracked for any reason.
So on this very unusually good usual day, we had something called chili chicken. I did mention how, chowmein and chili chicken is our all time favorite dish, right? I have written about a clever reconstruction of the ever illusive Indian chinese chowmein. But not about the lovelier counterpart. So here is a recipe of that gorgeous chili chicken!
And here is what it looks like. Droolworthy enough...for every single day of the 364 days!
And goes great with Sphagemein (my take on Chowmein) and sautéed prawn heads
To every gorgeous day of the year
Happy living and healthy eating!
