Dinner was a bowl of the hot and sour soup I made last night (very hot, indeed, and good), and some leftover Chicken, Asparagus, and Broccoli Stir-Fry made from a recipe in Bon Appetit. After the spicy soup, the stir-fry lacked character, though I'd thought it was fine the first time I ate some. I think the stir-fry also needs the trick of marinating the meat with soy sauce (or something) and cornstarch--the chicken is pretty dry despite the sauce. The recipe is worth saving to work with, though, and it was quick and easy.
