I have really stopped working on complex recipes and am mostly focused on providing us with as many meals per day as possible so that we don't have to eat in restaurants. I love Chinese food and going out, but the cooking in most of these places is high in oil and the hygiene is dubious at best. By knocking out steady, tasty meals we can spend time at home and save money. Plus we just enjoy being in the apartment, unwinding without having to deal with the hassles that come with traveling in cold weather. Mostly I do Asian dishes but once in a while I will throw in something like this veggie pasta thing with a scratch made marinara. I cranked up the green beans with some fresh Harbin sausage. Nothing complicated but still a good healthy meal.
