This Month's Film: Raise the Red Lantern
Cuisine: Chinese

Of all the dishes I have planned for this month's Dinner & a Movie, the appetizers are the most tempting. I have chosen to make Mu Shu Pork, Crab Rangoon, and Spring Rolls. However, instead of making them standard sized, I'm going to make tiny pancakes for the Mu Shu Pork, I'm going to bake the Crab Rangoon in tiny tartlet shells, and I'm going to wrap the Spring Rolls in little wonton wrappers instead of the usual 8" sheets of dough. And since I'm only preparing appetizers for this week's phase of the menu, I will be making plenty of 'em!
