Dinner on Jan. 29. Something easy to cook. Stir-fry veggeis and chicken, add tomato sauce and simmer. I had carrrot, cabbage and greanbeans. I run out onions. not only onions, I don't have enough vegetable in the fridge. It is only Tuesday! Should I go to grocery store or can I wait till this weekend? What can I make rest of this week?
Lunch at China Star on Jan. 28. It was warm today, but we had cold days last week. So I was hungry for nice and warm soup. Then I picked China Star. Thay have special menu for Chinese New Years. I had winter melon with clam soup and some appetizer. Of course, main dish for me is pork belly.
Appetizer : Black Fungus - It's a cold dish. I like the texture, soft but crunchy.
My Collagen, Pork Belly with Chestnuts
Today's Fortune Cookie : Never doubt logical things .... in bed! Yes, you are right! lol
Lunch on Jan. 26. I ordered Pad Thai to go from Angkor. It came with soup and spring roll. Pad Thai and spring roll is just ok, but pad thai was huge portion. I couldn't even finish half of that. I had choice for soup, wonton or lemon grass, and I picked lemon grass soup. I liked it. It had mushrooms and tomatoes. It tasted like spicy sour.
Lunch on Jan. 25. I don't usually cook much for lunch, it would be just an easy one plate dish or leftovers. I was going to go out this afternoon but it was snowing so bad. So I decided to stay home and make lunch. Still easy one though. I like pan fried gyoza, but I just put them in the soup and boiled, then less dirty dishes. I am full, now what am I gonna do? take a nap?
Dinner on Jan. 22. It was so cold today, so I definetely wanted have soup. I added ginger in soup and it helps to keep me warm. I was going to make spring roll but I ran out wrapping sheet(?) of spring rolls. So I just made Stir-fry. a lot easier.
Dinner on Jan. 21. I like Saba(Mackerel). It is good to cook with miso paste, but I like grilled saba the best. It's simple. I should have it more often. As the main dish was Saba, I made Japanese meal. It's always nice to have my food, Japanese!
Saba Shio Yaki : Grilled Mackerel - oops, it's burned. Served with soy sauce.
Dinner on Jan. 19. Nothing Special. BBQ Chicken, Boiled Brussels Sprout and Mashed Potatoes. This mashed potatoes have only butter, salt and pepper. I ran out milk. I don't drink milk much, so most of the time, milk goes bad before I finish. It's a bit dry but not that bad.
Lunch at Bigham Tavern on Jan. 19. I went to Power Yoga today. It was great. and after the yoga, I was hungry for Salad. I usually don't have vegetable for salad at home, so I went to Bigham Tavern and ordered Harvest Salad. I didn't take a picture, but of course! I had beer!
Harvest Salad : mixed greens / dried cranberry / dried white raisins / almonds / roasted red pepper / crumbled bleu cheese with House Vinaigrette Dressing - This salad is very flavorful and the bleu cheese gives good saltiness. I had dressing on it, but it would have been good without dressing.
Lunch at Tram's Kitchen on Jan. 16. I like Tram's. It's simple and tasty. The funny thing is that it tastes different everytime. One time soup was a bit salty, but today it was perfect. Either way tastes good anyway. Oh, I just found another vietnamese restaurant, pho minh. I would like to try it when I get hungry for vietnamese next time.
