Fun!

First thing, I don't think bread is usually served at a chinese meal, so you might want to keep that in mind.

egg rolls, lo mein, various chinese chicken, and of course fortune cookies for desert (you can even make your own).

Good luck and have fun!
God, grant us the...
Serenity to accept things we cannot change,
Courage to change the things we can, and the
Wisdom to know the difference
Patience for the things that take time
Appreciation for all that we have, and
Tolerance for those with different struggles
Freedom to live beyond the limitations of our past ways, the
Ability to feel your love for us and our love for each other and the
Strength to get up and try again even when we feel it is hopeless.

I now ALWAYS "velvet" chicken before I use it in stir fry or any other not coated Chinese recipes. I asked Noreen Gilitz and she said if I did not feel like splurging on sherry I could do it with apple juice. It makes a huge difference to getting the texture right. Worth googling how to do it as it really does not take very long.

Lemon chicken (this is a low carb knock off but it is incredible!)

peanut sauce great on chicken, tofu or vegetables

I also do fried rice, won tons, stir fry, beef and broccoli, and a sweet noodle thing, but those recipes I just google for and adjust as needed.

Can you post the sweet noodles recipe, HD? You are making me drool! I usually make the sesame noodles from KBD.

My poor SO still thinks that a Batya is a what, and not a who.

It is basically a sesame noodle recipe with some brown sugar melted and poured in. It is mostly to taste. I use a just a couple of teaspoons mixed with just enough margarine to keep it from being crunchy, melted in the microwave, then poured into almost any sesame noodle recipe.

So easy and I do it from leftovers!

Take plane day old cooked rice. Precook whatever meat and veggies you want in there (I use chicken, carrots, peas, sprouts, onion with some soy sauce and some sesame oil (I also sometimes add onion soup powder if I do not have time to sauté the onions for more flavor). Once they are cooked toss in the rice and coat well with the sauce ( you can add more soy sauce/oil/onion as needed).

Ads an egg or two and keep stirring.

Zehu.

For a crunchier top stick it under the broiler for a couple of minutes but watch it. It burns FAST!

I did a Chinese Purim Seuda a few years before we made aliya. We took all the central furniture out of our living room and put one of the succah boards on milk crates for a low table. Covered it with a red paper table cloth with Gold ribbons and designs drawn in gold marker and had people on pillows on the floor. It was a ton of fun.

I'm going to try this now with left over rice, thanks.

I've cooked my way through a Chinese cookbook. The typical Chinese meal is heavy on rice and veggies, though. I wouldn't subjects guests to that - they're going to expect American Chinese type fare, like you'd get at a restaurant. Heavy on the meat and oill.
