    I slipped this into a Japanese tea we had tonight, and must say it was really well received by the 4 Japanese girls here. I didn't mix cooked rice through it, just made with the hoisin sauce, vinegar, and soy as a sauce over the pork.

    The rice soaked up all the sauce, so it was a little dry. I would try it with regular rice rather than quick rice to avoid this, or would maybe use noodles rather than rice.


<p> <p> <p>Greetings from the palm of the Mitten State! I'm a 40-somthing gal with an awesome husband, Todd, and step-son, David. And I had the great privilege to be mom to the world's best cat, Bentley, for almost 12 years. As of 3/10/09 he's now free from all the ailments that plagued his past few years and is now a soft and gentle spirit who will be with me always. He was my best friend and the first real love of my life and leaves a cat-shaped hole in life.</p> <p><span style=color: #000000;>February 4, 2010, 2 new kitties joined our family.&nbsp; Nick and Nate were adopted from our local humane society and fill our home with purrs and laughter and lots of fur.&nbsp; We're lucky to have these two sweet kitty boys with us.</span></p> </p> <p>I'm&nbsp;a certified medical coder&nbsp;but currently enjoying being a stay-at-home cat mom.&nbsp; In past work lives I've been&nbsp;a corporate travel consultant, an auto claim assistant, a loan clerk, a secretary and an usher.<br /><br />I like to cook and LOVE to bake. It's great to share the gift of good food with my sweet wonderful husband, family and friends and co-workers. And I try to enter a couple different baked goods in my county fair each year.<br /><br />When I'm not working in the kitchen I enjoy reading, walking, scrapbooking, genealogy, and visiting with family and friends. I also love animals, and was a cat care volunteer at a local shelter for many years.</p> <p>&nbsp;<br /><br />R?E'S STAR RATINGS (effective for 2007 ratings and beyond) <br />5 -- Amazing! Incredible! Want to eat it or drink it all the time! Obviously this wowed us. Maybe it?s too decadent to make very often, but we can dream. <br /><br />4 -- Great! We loved it and will probably be having this frequently. <br /><br />3 -- Good . We liked it and might have it again, possibly with some changes. <br /><br />2 -- Passable. We ate it but won?t eat any leftovers and won?t be making this again, at least not as written. This will probably be due most often to one flavor being too strong. <br /><br />1 -- Inedible. There?s a critical error in the recipe. <br /><br /><img src= alt=Image hosted by /> <img src= alt=Image hosted by /> <br /><br /><img src= alt=Image hosted by /> <img src= alt=Image hosted by /> <br /><br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting /> <img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting /> <br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><br /><img src= alt= /></p> </p>
