Ma Po Tofu

I have been craving this for a while, and an order from the local Chinese place was not at all satisfying, so I got to work. I made it mild, so Milo could eat it too, and it was well received. Pork from fleisher's, good tofu, and a sauce from the chicken/lamb broth thickened with flour since we have no corn starch. A bit of soy, some vinegar, and peas. Then a pile of spinach and garlic in the same wok to round it out, and a pot of quinoa since there wasn't time for rice. It went well with a "Facets" chardonnay from Gemstone since it had no hot pepper in it.
