Chops For Days

-Chopsticks(English): kuàizi(Chinese), hashi(Japanese), jeotgarak(Korean) -
Today is the 8th straight day since I started using chopsticks for 90% of my meals at home & whenever I eat out at Chinese joints. It all started that other Friday nite when together with T-joy(ful) , Matt & Wei we treated ourselves to a sumptous, one of a kind buffet at the finest Chinese buffet in town. Ok, my delicacy was courtesy of T-joy(ful) who was giving me a treat:)
King's Buffet might as well pay me in food for this free promotion am doing for them,lol!
(post still in progress..more English & French text coming)

We had an impromptu dinner the other day after we'd spent early evening playing a wild game of cards in the dining room. Ofcourse I suck big time at card games but I somehow managed to come out with one win. To cap off a great evening, four of us decided to make some magic in the kitchen & part of the result was this: (post still in progress..more English & French text coming) If you'd like, guess what meat we cooked in this stew, get it right & I will do/give you a photo to use on your blog:)

NB: Post to be completed on waking up but feel free to leave your 2 cents. Merci!

PS: Replies to recent comments made on previous post coming up as well.

Does it mean I can claim first place here bro - your sister kicked me on the other side :)

I cook a mean Chinese - well, when i can be asked - and there was a time when i used to be good with chopstix -now i am lazy and use the fork - shame shame. Finish the post: Did you light a fire in the kitchen, did it look like a bombsite - or are you like me and clean as you go along.
Do tell, Don, do tell...

I have never learned how to use chopsticks :)

That looks like seafood to me (I can see octopus). I love seafood and now you are making me all hungry and you know my situation with cooking. Oh well, we may not have a King's Buffet but Mai Ling's Chinese House will do me just fine:)

Great thing with chopsticks is that unless you are a pro you end up eating less so they are the best diet tools ever!Love the pics they made me hungry.

Don't want to guess (pouts), just share it around already. The picture is edible enough.

the food looks tight! Um... octopus/ matumbo
or maybe chicken?
If not- has to be beef or pork unless of course it's mutton.

(is there a guess-limit?) I hope not as I'm fiending for an Aikey Pic.

We got us some chinese buffet somewhere in stockholm and after we ate they told us we were the first blacks they've seen eating frogs. I still hope they were joking.

Thanks all for staying around & please bear with me as I sort out my home computer probs. I am unable to comment on most KBW blogs with pop-up comment boxes since any sort of pop ups force my computer to reboot, I had to change my own blogs settings to allow me to write this. Should be able to reply to your comments as soon as I fix this mess. Thanks!

chopstiks are funky...really make you look like a chanukad person.

arent you scared of Avian Flu? I think Chinese meat that's not sushi or shrimp is questionable meet and quite possibly roadkil....but that's just me.

So what should I say: bon appetit?ce qui veux, peux.
(Okay, I stole that from Dallaire..)

Guess, No doubt the Number# 1 belonged to you over here despite Lil Sis getting to other blog before you:) You know we can still keep it nice & fun(ny) in the fam right?

Ok, it's a new year, get your copstix back out of the cabinet & get with the program, there's endless family dinners to be enjoyed especially if you work the magic with a mean Chinese decliacy...yes, I just asked you to make us some when we come to that land of red double deckers:)
- Yep, like you I cook, clean, cook some more, clean some more & when done you wouldn't tell I was in the kitchen..ok, the scent of food leads you there.

Lis Lis Nakeel, Long time sisteh, hope you're doing okay:) I see you & G had a race to my door, it's all good:)
Sorry, didn't hurry with the replies but yes, we you can take pilau with the meal but it's best taken with plain white rice or for a touch of more flavour, have it with wali wa nazi, you'll see heaven:))
Do try the choosticks Nakeel, it's an experience you'll get hooked on I tell you! Let me know incase you need them mailed out to you:)

mshairi, I could give you a hint or two on chopstick use, let me know. It's not that hard & it only took me two meal sittings to be comfortable with them.
Looks like seafood to you querida? Pole for making you hungry & all but you know since you love seafood I can arrange for roomie to get a recipe for more seafood delicacies you know?
Thanks for the hint, now I know where to take you for dinner when I make it across the pond Mshairi, Mai Ling's it is:)

Msanii_XL, Hehe! cooked seahorse...I wonder whether I've ever tried that. Will chance it. Btw, you and Mshairi are either looking through the same eyeglass or know a thing or two that the rest don't.

Poi, Once you try them chopstix and do it a couple more times without spilling food all over the place that makes you a pro, give it another try my dear friend so we can head to China Town when I come for Safari Sevens (I pray I be able to make it)
Hihi, chopstics was one of the tools here but not back on Maarifa:)) Yes, there's veggies & some really good seasonings. Was a cook up well enjoyed.

Acolyte, You really cracked me up with..." Great thing with chopsticks is that unless you are a pro you end up eating less so they are the best diet tools ever"
Said like a real diet pro but all the same I suggest you try it over & over until you can handle different bite-size foods. Btw, you know there's endless things you can do with them sticks, including cutting, picking, dicing etc?

Uaridi, Even though you didn't guess you know I'll be sending you more recipes just like I did the other times, right? .....and I will pout (like you did) incase you don't share your lovely cooking with them..yes, I've been told of your skills & won't pass up an opportunity to share a meal with you & Mshairi:)

Udi, I used to think like you a while back but, not to convert everyone into a chopstick user but it frankly isn't that hard to get munching with them. All the same, there's stuff like tearing thru nyamchoms etc that you can't do with chopsticks

Mutumia, Hmmmm, you mention matumbo & I realize it's more than 5yrs since I last ate them, making me very, very hungry just from the thought of it.
Ok, process of elimination here..mos def not pork bcoz am no pork eater, not matumbo..or that leaves one of two things. Will tell in a very quick second...but ofcourse you can make more guesses, not limit:)

Beziq Rhaaahaah! They told you what after you did this...?!
We got us some chinese buffet somewhere in stockholm and after we ate they told us we were the first blacks they've seen eating frogs. I still hope they were joking.

I can bet my last penny that they were telling you the truth bcoz where we go for dinner they have loads & loads of frogs legs & I've tasted them once and didn't like them much..hihi, kijana, pole sana:))LOL!! LOL!

Msanii_XL, Pt 2 u bet bro, I stayed away from both the spacebar & the enter key while comp was acting up. It's been very good & can harldy believe it gave me such a headache!

Light said...
You're giving me more class than I deserve gal...ati:chopstiks are funky...really make you look like a chanukad person.
Strange but I only think of avian flu when watching news but I forget all about it when at the Chinese joints, now you got me thinking out loud?!

not sushi or shrimp is questionable meet and quite possibly roadkil....
The funniest thing I've read from you, no lie! Thank God I don't have too many thoughts before dinner otherwise...LOL!

Kipepeo, Am sure you'll do just fine when you give them chopsticks a try & you know you'll have no reason to save your life with them unless you're starring in Jackie Chan's or Jet Li's next movie:)

If pic made you hungry then am flattered!

Oh la la, si tu as faim à cause d’avoir aperçu le repas, que se passerait-il si tu te mets à table avec nous? Un beau jour j’en suis sûr: )
Je suis sûr que avec un peu de patience et de pratique tu mangeras avec des chops sans aucun problème. J’en suis sûr mon amie: )
Ma façon d’écrire? Merci bien, trouché!

WM Go ahead, say grace & bring on that bon appetit then pass the gravy: ) I agree with you all the way...ce qui veux, peux even though you borrowed it from the amazing Dallaire..)
