House Warming Parties Notes

Posted on: January 14, 2011

后面至少还有两场。先把前面的记下来。

第一场

12/24/2010,  七个大人(吃饭的),其中一个vegetarian

菜单:

Appetizer: 葡萄(一袋),roasted acorn squash (两个小的acorn squash)

Entrees: 两块ribeye steak(大约1.8磅),糟溜鱼片 (两盒swai fillet),油豆腐塞肉 (一包油豆腐,大约一磅肉馅)

Side dishes: 清炒芥菜(一包),荠菜百页卷 (两袋荠菜,一包冻百页),雪菜毛豆(一袋毛豆),清炒面筋(一袋面筋)

Desserts: 芋头西米露

Drinks: water, tea

反馈:

1。 一袋葡萄有点少,acorn squash差不多吃完了

2。两袋荠菜做不出多少来,一个大盘子都没放满

3。1.8磅的steak也有点少,两个锅一起进烤箱的时候,上面那个锅会蛮生的

4。油豆腐塞肉花了最多的准备时间,几乎将近一个小时才塞好

5。大约准备了三到四个小时,全部准备好之后,依次炒菜,也花了一个半小时

6。闷了一大锅饭结果没人吃,我们吃了一个星期才吃完

7。芋头西米露没有放椰奶,有点subpar🙂

第二场

12/25/2010, 六个大人,一个teenager, 其中一个花生和海鲜过敏

菜单:火锅

饮料:一大瓶可乐,一大瓶雪碧

反馈:

1。teenager很能吃,以后要按照两个adults的饭量来计划

2。牛肉买了两盘,羊肉一盘,鸡肉一盘,牛百叶一盘,剩下都是青菜,蘑菇之类的。牛肉明显没有买够。应该牛肉三盘到四盘的样子。

3。洗了两种青菜,但是只吃了四分之一的样子

4。冻豆腐需要几个小时才好。当天买的花吃有点来不及。

5。又切了两个还是三个土豆,很受欢迎,全部吃光。

6。剩下的东西我们又涮了两顿。

第三场

1/2/2011,  十四个大人,十个小孩,其中一个小孩preteen

菜单:

Appetizer: 麻辣拌菜(两包豆腐丝,两个黄瓜,两袋金针菇,用的是袋装麻辣凉粉调料)

Entrees: 一只广式烧鸭,一只黄毛鸡,两个牛腱,一磅叉烧 (均为大华所购),糟溜鱼片(四盒swai fillet?)

Side dishes: 酸豇豆炒肉末(两包酸豇豆),蔬菜色拉,清炒面筋(一包半面筋),雪菜毛豆(两袋毛豆),荠菜百页卷(四袋荠菜,两袋薄百页)

Carbonhydrates: 13 x 9 corn bread, 13 x 9 veggie bread

Soup: 熏骨白菜豆腐汤(两个pork hock, 一盒豆腐,最大锅)

Desserts:芋头西米椰奶露 (一个大芋头), 11 x 9 糯米黏糕

Drinks: water, tea, juice, 一大瓶可乐,一大瓶雪碧

反馈:

1。忘记买水果了。而且throughout the day, 最缺的是small snacks 和水果。

2。麻辣凉粉调料不好吃极了

3。mountain view大华的熟食不好吃

4。veggie bread味道还可以,但是烤的时候我放了两碗水,所以质地不够干,有点面

5。糯米黏糕烤了四十五分钟,过了,没有卖相,但是却是最受欢迎的一样

6。吃饭的大人是十二个

7。有的小孩不吃中餐的,结果我们家里没有西餐的东西给他吃,除了牛奶,果汁和奶酪,还有blueberry pie

8。东西做多了,后来六个大人,五个小孩又吃了一顿晚饭,还有剩的

9。烤东西需要的时间并不短

10。真的开始大干,是前天晚上六点左右吧,做到半夜两点,做了八个小时

11。认为如果只管一顿饭的话,六个小时大干,加上两个小时左右的part time,应该够了?

12。不能让小孩子们自己在楼上疯玩儿,要supervised playing。games actually can do a wonderful job to keep their attention。

13。觉得家里碗不够。因为一轮主食,碗就用掉了。再上甜点的时候,就要洗碗才行。现在基本上都是客人们洗的。

14。不要现场modify/adjust baking recipe。这次的corn bread就不太成功。其实人家是个很好吃的recipe。

不吃中餐的小孩,是中国人还是外国人啊?我见过一些拒绝吃中餐的小孩,都是中国小孩。不知道外国小孩会不会也有见到中餐觉得陌生就不吃的?反正我小时候就没有想要拒吃任何东西的经历所以很难理解 :-p

我也做了熏骨汤了。是很好吃啊,要不是你说我还一直没发现。我买的是腔骨的而且很大块。下次要试试hock的!

he is Chinese. I think Chinese food is an acquired taste, in comparison to hot dogs, pizza etc. Cannot blame the child.

A child can be rather picky and they generally won’t be adventurous in eating. It is rather the parents’s (arduous) responsibility to help their children to be exposed to a wide variety of food and instill the sense of adventure into them, at least in eating.

Few caucasian children i saw would eat the very Chinese food, except one of the parents is Chinese.

Yay🙂 (for the smoked pork🙂

The hocks in Japanese market are very large too. Luckily, the Chinese supermarket finally started selling these smoked pork parts just about a month or two ago here. And within weeks, their gigantic size of pork hock reduced to very manageable sizes. I have a pack at home now. They are a lot easier to use for portion control!

Let me know if you find out other uses of it! I am using it only for soups for these years. There gotta be other good dishes that can come out of it!
