GT: Comfort food

For this weeks theme on Girl's Talk its about our comfort food. Nowadays whenever I am stressed out or feeling low I usually crave for SPICY CHICKEN FEET, it is a variation of dimsun that is usually offered in Chinese Restaurants.

I tried making these a couple of times but it is tedious process since you still need to clean the chicken feet roll it into sugar and deep fry for about 8-10 minutes, then you have to boil it with osyter sauce, water, sake and star anise and chinese parsley until it gets tender, then you have to leave it on the marinade for 24 hours and steam for 15 minutes before serving. If i have time I do it myself but if I dont feel like cooking I usually order from my fave chinese resto it is only $6 per order and it would satisfy both me and my hubby.

It is fun and comforting to eat this dish since it would take time to take out the meat and it creates a bonding time with me and my hubby since it would take us a fair amount of time to finish our meal, we would have chance to talk about lots of things and before you know it I feel happy already ( LOL).

This is a sample pic of my comfort food------ ohhhhh just by looking at it my mouth is already drooling too bad we cant eat meat yet until Sunday... Until then you shall be in my dreams LOL.
