Homemade KFC with chicken filet in small pieces so can panfry in less oil.
Marinated it since early morning in buttermilk and herbs/spices.
Air fryer fries.
No coleslaw because grocery shop had no fresh cabbage. Some cabbage pickles from a jar in pantry.
Steamed endive with a little creme fraiche.
Plums.

Homemade takeout. Chicken lettuce wraps, vegetable lo mein, and eggrolls.

One of our pandemic projects has been learning how to make our favorite Chinese buffet and takeout food at home (there's nowhere really good to get Chinese takeout within a half hour of our new house).

It's labor intensive with all the prep work, and uses a lot of special ingredients in the sauces. But totally worth the effort every once in a while.

We had leftover pizza from last night. Tomorrow (Sunday) we're making something special. Trying our hand at homemade potstickers/pan-fried dumplings, and having stir fried beef with snow peas to go with them.

We've mastered lo mein and chicken lettuce wraps. The next challenge in re-creating our takeout favorites is dumplings. I think I helped make them one time in the distant past. The process seems familiar.
