TEN! can you believe it?!! This is a pretty uneventful week~ Meep and I had dim sum w DK n V at TAIPAN in Palo Alto. It was not too bad, but nothing amazing. It should have been considering the prices on the menu.
The lady boss was a family friend of V so we got some nummy nutritional wintermelon and gojiberry soup~
3rd – Black bean spare ribs!!! In Brunei, mom used to get spare ribs over rice along with siumai for dim sum every now and then. I think that is why I eventually just can’t have dim sum w/o ordering these
V ordered a whole bunch of other stuff, which I happily scarfed down~ ^o^
For dinner- I made fresh egg noodles and wontons!
Monday – I made salmon cakes served with a caper lemon mayo. I originally used Giada’s Lemon Aioli recipe but found it lacking… So I added capers! More of a snack than a meal but so tasty! We had instant noodles when we got hungry again~ lol
Salmon fillet baked in oven, bunch of chopped up veg, an egg, panko breadcrumbs & whole bunch of spices… gives you…….
Tuesday – Meep was away so I did not have to make dinner! LOL So I indulged in a lot of snacking a deep fried~ I had deep fried wontons and zucchini sticks~
Wednesday – Salmon Teriyaki!!! Had leftovers since I was ALLLL alone!! =(
Thursday- Meep came home late night. I made some fresh spinach fettuccine the night before at 12 am. LOL.. Decided to try making tomato cream sauce. It was kinda plain tasting so I ended up making italian sausage, tomato cream sauce for meep
I started craving a burger at 12 am so I made myself some! It is pretty awesome to have a fridge full of ingredients and be able to make whatever I crave~ So I made myself a beef “sandwich” with an egg~
Friday – Chicken mushroom cabbage soup!! This stewing chicken took 4 hours before it was no longer tough.. lol…
and Japanese egg tofu w green onions n minced pork~
Saturday- Dint go to SF for Meep’s game coz I was up till 5 am watching East of Eden, a depressing Korean drama set in 1980s. They won the game! YAY Red Leafs! For lunch we had Vietnamese. I made the mistake of ordering the steam chicken w rice… I have high expectations when it comes to Steam chicken w rice, so was kinda disappointed.
For dinner it was Japanese night~ Miso soup, teriyaki chicken w rice, teriyaki chicken roll and california roll
This is it. Week 10! I have been going a lil crazy coz of all the food experiments. Menu should be more boring next week…
