I love to go down to Chinatown for subs. There is a little teeney shop in a strip mall with 2 tables in the doorway. The family that runs it is friendly and loud and one lady has a miraculous memory. Unfortunatly I won't have to go down there as much now that Scott and I are making our own version.Vietnamese Chicken Subs
This is just a list of ingrediants. Use as much or as little of each as you want.
Cooked Chicken, sliced
Mozzarella or other mild white cheese, sliced
Jalapeno Peppers, seeded and minced
Spread mayonnaise (if using) on bun. Place chicken slices on one half of the bun and top with the cheese. Broil in your oven or toaster oven until bread is crisp and cheese is melted. Remove to a plate. Spread peanut sauce on the side of the bun with out the chicken, and top your sandwich with cilantro, jalapeno, cucumber and carrot salad.
1 cup of shredded carrot
3 tb sugar
1/4 cup rice vinegar or wine vinegar
pinch of hot pepper flakes
1 cup water
Place the carrot in a bowl, cover with water and microwave on high for 3 minutes. Meanwhile, mix the rest of the ingrediants in a bowl or jar with a lid. Mix until the sugar is dissolved. When the carrots are done, drain and add to the jar. Let sit at least one hour.
In other news, I am making my own raspberry vinegar, so I can make my own raspberry vinegrette. I'll keep you posted.
Also, look what I got! I have looked all over Calgary for grits with no luck. I asked my boss to look in a specialty grocery store by his house for me. Without telling me, he called a friend that was coming to Canada for vacation, and asked him to bring me some. The 2 containers were sitting on my desk when I came to work this morning. I am kind of freaked out, because the pictures on the box were not what I was expecting grits to be, but then I didn't really know what to expect. Help! I need some suggestions/cooking tips. Tanna
can you or anyone out there help?
