How I want to be a good cook! I can cook ok, but not very well. Chinese cooking takes you too much time.

yes...and i love it..i love hunan yummy...

I thought you said "human food".

whirly - yes, cooking takes so much time! I am still enjoying making soups. It's so easy to make a simple soup, starting with a packet of seasoning. I just stand there & cut up veggies & tofu, and add egg or dumplings or noodles, or any combination of whatever I have.... and by the time I'm done cutting & tossing it into the pot, it's all done. Do I sound like a poor bachelor?

I'm about to fry leftover noodles in butter, and add scallions & egg & spices. That will be my breakfast - er, I mean lunch. Whatever.
I am not rich.  :L

Mike, I had this in Suzhou 3 years ago. It was really good, same thing happened to me. I said, man, how can I eat that dirty pork. But it is realy realy good.. and it was cheap, (I rem ...

in zheijiang provicne and shaghai it's everywhere, along with other things i like.  they only cost 1 or 2rmb here.

other things such as these little round cake things with pork and green onion.  don't know the name, but they are only .5rmb for each one.  they are cooked in some little ceramic/clay stove thingy with coals in it.  this is street vendor food as well.

more meat on the stick..(hey freaky, i call it the same thing lol) with my 8rmb lunch WITH bubble cheap is that!!  this place i get them for 1rmb, but as you can see it wasn't street vendor food.

one more...chinese chestnuts

i don't have a pic of this, but these are sooo good.  there's the ones that are boiled and cooked with a little salt and the ones, which are mainly on the street, roasted in a wok with some spcial pebble (i guess it's a pebble...looks like coffee beans sort of).  just got some today in fact!!!  ;-]

interestingly, i don't think i started seeing these until close autumn.  is it seasonal or is it just cuz it's too hot to eat them in the summer?

here's a pic that's not mine...:
