There was no cooking this week, but there was an adventure in eating, which is about as good.

My friend Tina is Chinese, and she'd promised ages ago to cook some proper Chinese food for us. So last week, she did.

She made ribs and a celery salad with peanut oil and red peppers, a soup with cabbage and what I think was bok choy, pickled radishes, onions stirfried with pepper sauce and beef tips, and a spicy cabbage dish.

It was all delicious. I wish I knew how to make it for myself!

Another friend brought homemade corn tortillas with cheese and really yummy beans. Didn't match the theme, but it was excellent.

After dinner we had Chinese tea and conversation. A lovely evening all around.
