Steamed Artichoke and Panzanella

Sunday, August 13

Croque Madame: Fried egg on a hot sandwich (ham, tomato and cheese)

Curry Flavored Stir-Fry

Steamed Artichoke
I googled a recipe for artichokes. Oven grilled one looked good, but I didn't want to use oven for 45 minutes for only one artichoke. So I find the recipe using pressure cooker. Cooking time was only 10 minutes! That's for me!

It's been a while to make panzanella! I had all ingredients to make it ... but cucumbers! So I used zucchini instead. Ha! It worked!

I had to go to work today. After work, I sent a text to J and said "I am not gonna cook tonight. Would you like to make me dinner, eat out or take out food?". He made hamburger and tomato salad. Lucky me.

Kushi Katsu!

Friday, August 11
I had a off today. I took a long walk with my dogs in the morning, had lunch and went for a short bike ride. 

Tuna Salad, Scrambled Egg, Homegrown Tomato, Umeboshi, Rice, Miso Soup


Kushi Katsu: Pork, Shrimp, Zucchini, Onion, Mushroom, Green Beans
- I like breaded deep fried food (who doesn't!), but it's hard to make it good at home. And a whole house would smell like oil after cooking. Def, I would have to go to Kushi Katsu restaurant when I visit Japan next time.

Beef Stew and Night Snack

Thursday, August 10
I had quick dinner before going out for bike ride and kickball game. I came back around 9:30 pm and enjoyed wine and snack.
