Cheesesteak, Brillbox

Dinner at Brillbox on January 16.

I thought I went to Brillbox for happy hour, but eventually it turned to dinner.
I had a cheesesteak. To be honest, I am not big fun of cheesesteaks. But I was kinda drunk and didn't want to browse the menu. Anyway I liked it. The meat was tender and juicy, sauteed peppers and mushroom were good. Wait, I was drunk. I have to try it again when I am sober.


Great pasta, Sienna Sulla Piazza

Dinner at Sienna Sulla Piazza on January 14.

Here is another restaurant I can enjoy pasta! Sienna has fresh pasta! Of course, it's not over cooked. I usually don't care about flat breads, but I am curious about it at this restaurant. Salad also looked good. I am already looking forward to coming back.
Meat and cheese - it was ok. I don't think I'll order again.

Wild Mushroom Bruschetta - Good smell of truffle. Good appetizer.

Bucatini with mozzarella stuffed meatballs - It comes with 2 big meatballs. The pasta was chewy and went good with tomato sauce.

Vegetable Soup Diet Day 4.

Day 4, on January 5.

I got sick of the tomato soup, so I made miso soup. It tastes a lot better but I realized that miso soup has more calories than the vegetable soup. Also I had to eat tomato and peppers by themselves. I just keep telling myself that the soup is healthier than what I always eat.

Miso soup with cabbage, carrot, onion, burdock root and seaweed.

500ml skim milk and 2 bananas.

Vegetable Soup Diet Day 1.

Diet on January 2.

I have eaten too much. I have drunk too much .... since Christmas... no, since Thanksgiving. I had to give up on some pairs of pants to wear. I think it's time for diet. After researching (I did just net surfing. lol.), I found the vegetable soup diet which I could lose 10 pounds in a week. During the diet, I can't drink beer at all. It's torturing me, but no choice. I can't afford to buy clothes.

This is the vegetable soup. Throw any vegetables (except potatoes, corn and beans) and can of tomatoes in the chicken broth. Cook. I added some salt and pepper.

Day 1, January 2. : Vegetable Soup as much as I want, Half of an a Apple and Half of a Pomegranate. (any fruits are fine except bananas).
