To me, life is all about the simple pleasures.
When I was a student at San Jose State University, it was not uncommon for me to stop by Dollar Chinese on the way back from class to pick up a little grub.
There’s something about Chinese fast food that just soothes the soul.
It’s my comfort food.
I don’t eat it that often, but boy do I love it.
When Kara’s mom brought back a Chinese feast the other night, I was stoked to the hella.
On the top right of the picture, you’ll see that I cracked open a bottle of Korbel that was lying around.
I broke this out because sparkling wines are always known for their versatility when it comes to food pairings. With the diversity of flavor profiles on the table, the Korbel really did the trick.
As tasty as the food and wine was, I’ve gotta say I am most proud of what I did with the leftovers the next morning.
I reheated the Mongolian Beef on a griddle, and scrambled me up an egg to make myself a Chinese Omelette…
Aside from tearing the omelette during folding, I was really happy with the end result.
The next time I have some Chinese leftovers, you know I’ll be making more of the same.
