I hope you are in the mood for Chinese food, because that’s what’s on the menu for this month’s Cooking with Astrology “Sagittarius”! I bet you’re dying to know why…..right?
Yes, the inspiration for this entire “Chinese” meal, came from seeing this pin! Have I ever mentioned how much I love pinterest?
No, Ian Somerhalder is not Chinese but he is a Sagittarius AND the hottest vampire on the planet…..so let’s just go with it shall we? How about I start you off with a Lychee Martini this evening? Why yes, thank you, that would be lovely…..
I actually made a Lychee Martini several years ago for a Chinese New Year’s party, but it wasn’t all that spectacular. I knew I just needed to tweak it a bit and make it perfect…..and I did! It needed orange liqueur to balance out the flavors of the vodka and the lychee juice.
What is lychee juice??? Well it is the liquid/syrup used in canned lychees…..
Sorry, I didn’t take a better picture of the actual can, but you get the idea. You should be able to find them in the ethnic food section of your local grocery store.
I realized after I chose this meal (and this drink) that the body party ruled, is the liver. So don’t over do it Sagittarius, we don’t want you to mess up your liver with too many martinis or fried foods! 😉
Sagittarius tend to be very philosophical, intelligent, idealistic, highly ambitious, and enthusiastic. They are on a quest to gain knowledge, explore the world, and are driven by adventure! Sounds like Brad Pitt right?
So here is a look at our entire meal…..
We start off with our Lychee Martini and Paper Wrapped Chicken…..
Our entree is Chicken Chow Mein…..
We have Almond Cookies for dessert…..
and Egg Foo Young for breakfast…..
Get your chopsticks ready, this is going to be a busy week!! Enjoy!
