Rice noodle stir fry

Last night I made chicken and veggie stir fry with rice noodles. I did it in a sort of Vietnamese style with chicken tenders, garlic, ginger, soaked wood ear mushrooms, green onions, red pepper and coriander with fish sauce, sake, sesame oil, rock sugar, buckwheat honey and sriracha hot sauce. Soy sauce is a good substitute for fish sauce. Incredibly light and so much flavor. Definite repeat but since I never measure and never follow or use recipes it will never be the same.

I've done it!

After promising my wife that I will start my own food blog I have finally done it! I am sure that lot of people that saw movie “Julie and Julia” decided that it would be interesting thing to try. Where to start?
Maybe I just post some pictures of my garden and food that I have cooked recently. But first, I have to find my way around the Blogger and see how it is done, I guess.

Pan seared duck breast on bed of arugula with three grains risotto (barley, wild rice and basmati rice) that I have served on Thanksgiving Monday..
I will post my version of this dish at a later date.
