It had Brunch menu today. I had Carbonara and my friend ordered Quiche of the day. I didn't expect my meal much and it was what I thought. Pasta Sauce was good but past was overcooked. Can't I have normal pasta in Pittsburgh except at Dish? People next table were having Fried chicken and Waffle. It was huge. I think there were 3 or 4 pieces of BIG chickens. They seemed enjoying. I might wanna try it next time, but I need someone to share it with me. The restaurant was very busy, but it took too long to bring us drink. I think I waited more than 15 minutes. We ordered cocktail, so I understand it takes more than just beer or wine. They have good coctails for brunch and most of customers were drinking mixed drinks. I saw only 2 bartenders. Did they short staff today? or they should prepare busy brunch time.
1. Rinse 2 cups(160cc x 2cups) of rice
2. Cut some water Lotus Root

5. Make it boiled. Put the lid and cook for 12 mins in low heat. You do NOT open the lid.
6. Turn off the heat and wait for 10 mins. You do NOT open the lid yet.
I was hungry for Thai food. Angkor is not my favorite restaurant, but it was a convinient location for my plan today. I don't have curry at Thai Restaurant much, but I had green curry today. It was good. And I always like lemon grass soup here.
Lemon Grass Soup - ahaha, I just found that I said I liked this soup at last post.
Green Curry with Beef - You can pick one from veggie, tofu, chicken, beef and shrimp.
Today's Fotune Cookie : We can admire all we see, but we can only pick one ... in bed. What would you pick? ahahaha, such a dumb question!

Yay, I was off today. I like a day off on week day. I spent all day for myself. I still had to do some household but I did just in minnimum. I took a walk with my dog, went to ridc a bike and gave me a treat, pedicure at salon. Anyway this is what I had for breakfast. It's very rare for me to make something in the morning. I am usually to lazy. See? How much I excited for a day off today!
Egg omlet with Nira Sauce - Yes, it worked very well!
Renkon Gohan : Lotus Root Rice Pilaf - I wanted to make this rice this morning. That's all.
You gotta be kidding me! I heard it snowed north of Pittsburgh. It's middle of May, isn't it? But you know what? It's not that bad for me. I was hungry for Nabe (Japanese hot pot) and it was perfect to have it in such a cold day. I enjoyed the meal, but hopefully it is the last chance to have nabe in this season.
I visited my mother-in-law on Mother's Day. Did I cook for her? No. She made seared scallop, salad and dessert, Father-in-law grilled steak. I just ate and drank. Thank you for feeding us all the time even on Mother's Day!
I was hungry for deep fried food. I found potato croquette in the freezer. Just in case, I defrosted chicken too. I was right. The croquette tasted ok but it was mess. I pan-fried chicken. As the chicken was thigh part, it was juicy and flavorful.
Zucchini Salad - I didn't know that we can eat zucchini without cooking. It was good.
I feel tired all day. I didn't take time to cook, so I just cooked salmon and green beans. I added butter and garlic salt in the rice. The dinner plate looks good, but maybe a bit too small? Then I made salad too.
Salad : Just cut the romaine lettuce half, sprinkle crashed almonds on it.
I got chicken thigh and made Karaage. Karaage is Japanese style fried chicken. It's marinated with ginger, garlic and soy sauce. My mom makes good Karaage. I have to ask her the recipe. Mine was just ok. Hmmmm, I am hungry for my mom's.
Teriyaki Hamburger Bento! I added brocolli stem and onion in the meat. Hamburger was pan-fried and when it's steamed, I cooked brocolli and carrot too. So I cooked everything in one pan at same time. Save some time and less dirty dishes.
Dinner on May 3. I had tomato sauce and I wanted used it up. So I made Omu-Rice, which is rice in egg omlet. I was going to add ham in the rice and it's gone! It seemed to be threw it away by accident. So I added edamame. I poured tomato sauce on the omulet and sprinkled cheese.
