G - Garlic and Ginger
This is an ode to garlic and ginger--perhaps the two most well-loved and well used standbys in my kitchen. They allow me to be creative in preparing meals with whatever I find in the fridge.
Tonight for example I made a stir fry with a piece of chicken cooked with GARLIC and GINGER, then I added sliced onions, celery, carrots and a big slop of Thai Peanut sauce, finishing it off with pieces of broccoli, and served it over steamed noodles. Voila--a tasty dinner. It wouldn't have been the same without those old standbys. I adore them separately but most of all cooked together.
What are your standbys in the kitchen
