I am very behind in updating my blogs. For latest ones, please check my flickr photos. I don’t know why, but I think it is getting slower in uploading pictures in this blog. It’s kinda frustrating
Balinese Spicy Chicken March 20, 2007
Going back to taste of home. It’s always the best dish to reheat. I’ve been lazy to prep in the morning, so I made everything last night.
We just bought 2 new pyrex container, with steam vent on the lid. Perfect for reheating in microwave. Guess what, I forgot to take my orange and cucumber out before reheating.. mm.. so I got a luke warm orange.. not a good idea.
Burger and Mapo Tofu March 9, 2007
Last night, I put mapo tofu and mixed veggie in the bowls. In the morning, I reheat rice, mapo tofu, and pan fry burger. It took about 20 min to prepare 2 set of bentos, for me and my hubby.
* I prepare the burgers ahead, freeze them. In the morning, all I need just pan frying.
Left over – again March 5, 2007
Left overs from today’s dinner and the day before.
*Stir fry broccoli, mushrooms, and egg tofu in oyster sauce; spicy eggplant (using Gochujang – korean hot pepper paste).
I miss the one taste of eggplant from Baiso. It’s kinda spicy but it has a sweet after taste. I am guessing they’re using Gochujang and some kinda syrup. It came pretty close, but not quite. I think I miss ground sesame. I’ll try again next time and see.
My latest bento shopping March 4, 2007
I don’t shop on clothes or other stuff. My shopping craze is all about bento. I searched my area, been to LOTS of asian supermarkets (hoping to find bento items), driving my hubby nuts, absolutely nuts.
Can you blame me? They’re super cute and beautiful! A lot of people say I’m crazy, being so obsessed on lunch, spending so much time on lunch. I bet everyone who has a hobby or passion in something, they’ll go for it and they’ll spend money and time that seems crazy to others. It is my way of stress relief method.. I found myself very relax in the kitchen.
Another quick one. Left over noodle from chinese takeout, spam, fruits, I cook thick omelete and teriyaki balls.
Just boil beef/shrimp/crab imitation/squid balls (anythign you have). Throw in a pan with a bit oil, to brown them a bit, then add teriyaki sauce.. Tada.. if you want to make it fancy, use a cute toothpick, make it looks like satay. Of course you need to find a good teriyaki sauce.
