Chungming taught me to make Di San Chen (Three Fresh Vegetables). This is Green Pepper, Potato, and Eggplant.
So delicious, but though it might seem healthy know that you have to try each piece of vegetable in oil!
Next we made Gong Bao Ji Din, which is chicken with peanuts, green onion, and cucumber. Its a little spicy.
Then Bing taught me how to make Tomato & Egg (Don't know the pinyin for this one!). It basically scrambled egg with tomatoes and a little sugar.
What a feast! We had a fun time talking about Shijiazhuang--which happens to be both the city I lived in and the city where they grew up! I am reminded again and again that it is so valuable to have friends all over the world.
