Mixed Plate Friday

Do you folks do this? I never had before. I watched a recipe on how to make like a legit fried noodle dish and they said that you gotta remove the ends to make it taste good. Boy were they right. It made SUCH a difference in taste but my god, what a time eater. It takes FOREVER to do this.

Look look look! Zero sugar chocolate chips. I saw it and just had to get it. I was on a baking frenzy so I wanted to give these a try.

What did I make? I think this was a chocolate banana cake. It was enjoyed by everyone and they couldn’t even tell it was sugar free chocolate chips! Cool yeah? I found this bag at Walmart.

Been wanting to try bb.q Chicken since they opened in the new Kuono Marketplace in Kahala. They are a newish Korean fried chicken place. And knowing me, of course I deviated. My coworkers all got the fried chicken sandwich so none of us tried their fried chicken wings, lol. They really really enjoyed their sandwiches! I didn’t feel like fried chicken so I went for this. It was okay. I’m used to this dish being both sweet and spicy but this one was moreso spicy so there was no balance. It also wasn’t as saucy as other places. I liked it but wouldn’t get it again.

    LOL I only used to do the bean sprouts like that for company, not for home meals. My mother’s family never did but I had a classmate in high school who told me she hated beansprouts because that was her job. That’s when I found out people did this.

      I trying to remember if my mom ever did this to beansprouts but I am going with definitely not. I remember having to help her clean the beans and like removing the tips and peeling that stringy thing. That turned me against beans for sure lol.

  2. I only saw the bean sprouts clean up during New Year’s food prep. So – really makes a difference? Hmmm. Maybe I’ll try.

      You will definitely taste a difference, you’ll have a nice clean crunch in your dish. It’s weird but the best way I can explain it is that it’s a cleaner taste!
