I love spending time with my son in the kitchen. What started off as playtime by simply baking cookies when he was younger has turned into a love of cooking and learning new things for him. We love any excuse to spend time together learning new recipes and traditions. Now that we’re homeschooling, it’s turned into even more of a lesson in learning. Take for instance, Chinese New Year. It’s a great way to learn about other cultures and the perfect time to head to the kitchen for a little recipe. We love Chinese food and one of our family favorites is General Tso’s Chicken. This is such an easy dish to make at home and one that my son hasn’t made with me yet.
Since we had a craving for some delicious Chinese food the other day, I thought it would be the perfect time for him to learn a new recipe.
I’m currently working on our lesson plan to learn all about the Chinese New Year and the year of the Monkey. Once that’s done, we’ll turn our lesson into a mini celebration that concludes with this delicious meal.
Once I started making this recipe at home, I was shocked at how easy it really was to make our own. Sure take out is fun every once in a awhile but making it homemade is always better.
Whenever I have takeout I always have to order some chicken egg rolls to go with it. They are one of my favorites. So we paired our at home version with Pagoda Chicken Eggrolls and Crab Rangoon for an easy and delicious Chinese dinner at home.
