Studying China

Rounding out our study of China with Egg Drop Soup and Honey Ficken (‘ficken’ = fake chicken).

It's educational.

It’s educational.

Ellie helped cook.

I promise that I’m working on that second mermaid arm. And a Rooster.

    I had to giggle about “Ficken.” I’m so happy you post about these vegan food items. My husband is Eastern Orthodox. Several times a year we go on very long fasts. No meat is allowed. After 15 years, I am stinking sick of fish. We were supposed to have a two week fast, but I threw the biggest temper tantrum! My doctor wants me off white carbs, so I can’t eat potatoes, rice, pasta or sugar. So fasting has become a bad word in my vocabulary. I will look for Ficken and Furkey and anything else you can recommend that doesn’t taste fishy and isn’t fried. I’m desperate Em.

    Try Gardein! It’s really good – and not in a sad way. You can find it in the freezer section at Publix, and our Wal-Mart even carries a few kinds. Some things are breaded, but most varieties aren’t.

    You read my mind! In this case it’s a regular old “Chicken Chicken Chicken” pattern Rooster. But I’ve been thinking about a giant (Alphabet Animal Size) version for about a year! I almost did that next instead of the Mermaid – but Ellie wanted a mermaid.

    I had never seen training chopsticks before this and right after I read your reply I saw them on Amazon.com with little bears on them. They came up in my recommendations, isn’t that something? I think it is a real cute idea and good way to learn to use them.
