One of my resolutions this year is to post more frequently on my blog. Unfortunately, between the fact that I have limited free time and the fact that I tend to be ridiculously verbose, it seems like my posts have become too far apart.
In an effort to get in the habit of posting more frequently, I'm going to try out a new series called Food Photo Friday. I am
slightly obsessive about photographing nearly everything I eat, and most of the photos never see the light of day. So every Friday, I'll pick a photo or a few and post them here, maybe write a little something about them (or maybe not), but in the end, hopefully you'll have something pretty to look at and I'll have a few more posts on my blog every month. At least, that's the idea. We'll see how it goes.
For my first Food Photo Friday, I present to you a photo of my mom's niu rou mien. Niu rou mien is Mandarin for "beef with noodles." It's a simple dish, really, but it's total comfort food for me. My mom makes it for me nearly every time I'm in Minnesota. She slow cooks chunks of beef for a couple of hours with carrots and serves it over noodles with a smattering of scallions and a side of our favorite brand of super-garlicky kim chee. Wonderful.
I wish I could eat some right now.
