A couple of weeks ago I posted about Jaxon cooking a traditional Chinese dinner for us and how fabulous it was. That next weekend we had Adam and his family (we met them in Guangzhou) up to the lake for the weekend and Jaxon and Adam cooked for everybody. It. Was. FANTASTIC! They chopped, sliced, diced, stirred, marinated, rolled, simmered, etc for almost 3 hours. Karen (Adam's mom) and I tried to help but were shooed out of the kitchen every time we entered. We were told "we cook, you watch." So, we sat and did just that, watched. We watched as our boys prepared several Chinese dishes for 15 people. We had beef dishes, pork dishes, chicken dishes, rice, noodles, potatoes, and even dumplings.
There was SO much food. We ate until we couldn't eat anymore and there was still leftovers (which we were more than happy to take home). It was the best Chinese food I have ever had.
I know many of you have e-mailed me asking for recipes and I would love to share, but the thing is, I have no idea what or if he even uses a recipe. He doesn't measure a thing. He keeps adding ingredients until he gets the taste he likes. Honestly, I don't even know what half the stuff he uses is, all I know is that it is good.
