I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THIS IS/WAS
It’s now Wednesday and I’m still eating my way through most of the BAON I packed from last weekend’s festivities. This entry makes little sense because I have no idea what this dish was before I added my own special touch to it.
I didn’t even try it at the party. In my effort to be efficient I was nodding my head and saying yes nay (mom) when she was asking me what I wanted to take home with me. I guess I can call this the stowaway.
Baon- Or the stowaway for the stake of staying true is a dish with eggplant and tofu. It’s a pretty mushy dish and looked very black and white.
*So I added some color! I still had some carrots and bell pepper left from earlier this week so I threw them in there. I also made a sauce to go with it. I mixed a little XO sauce and Oyster sauce and then threw that in too. I let it boil for a bit and then went in for a taste. Sweet, savory with a little spice. NOT BAD AT ALL :) Until next time.
Lucky Chances is a 24 hour casino on the outskirts of San Francisco in a city called Colma. Popular with many of the Bay Area gamblers but it also draws many of the local party goers. The casino has an awesome cafe called Cafe Colma however most use the casino name interchangeably with the cafe.
After the clubs close many make this their next stop. Late night munchies, a place to recap the night’s festivities, or the Filipino breakfast specials known as silogs.
Silogs- are dishes with your choice of meat, served with sinangag (garlic fried rice) and itlog (egg) made to order.
Tapsilog: Tapa- marinated beef
Longsilog: Longanisa- pork sausage
Tocilog: Tociono- marinated pork
Bansilog: Bangus- milk fish
I think you see where I’m going here.
Baon- Comsilog. Combo of Tocino and Bangus.
*Instead of rice I chopped up some cauliflower and used it as rice substitute. I know it’s not the healthiest but it’s hard to say no to Lucky Chances. It’s a comfort food. :)
Until next time
What’s so special about the Special K Challenge?
Lose up to 6 pounds in 2 weeks. Can this be true? Remember to read the fine print though. I copy and pasted it below.
*Consult your physician before starting any diet or exercise program. Average weight loss when replacing meals with two cereal meals is 4.8 pounds. Weight loss may vary
In case you can’t read it as most fine prints are often hard to read it states- “*Consult your physician before starting any diet or exercise program. Average weight loss when replacing meals with to cereal meals is 4.8 pounds. Weight loss may vary”
In any case I don’t have any Special K as you can see but I am going to try it and eat cereal at least twice a day for the next two week and see what happens. Until next time.
Alton Brown’s Fried Chicken Recipe Part 2
Well there you have it! Picture update like I said I would. I’m was really bad about following the recipe. I didn’t have buttermilk so I used Almond Milk, which I guess could be a substitute for those who are lactose.
I also ended up just eyeballing the measurements and I think it ended up a little salty. Other than that I think it’s a pretty good recipe. It was crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.
Make sure you cook your chicken all the way through. The legs take the suggested amount of time 10-12 minutes on each side. The thighs however took a little longer. I know because when I went to eat it… well you already know. So I threw it back in.
Until next time,
I usually would bake the chicken but I’m cooking for two tonight and my sister wanted Fried Chicken. So I looked to one of my Food Network favorites for some cooking tips.
Lucky for me I had most of the ingredients in my pantry already. I’ll post the pics and results on the next one. Until next time.
Foraging for Food
I try my best and I know you all do too, to eat everything that I buy before getting more groceries. There are times though when we forget about the last of this and that can of something that we always thought we would use.
Tonight I found some #leftover 1)Seafood Mix, 2)Shrimp Meat, 3)Can of diced tomatoes w/ Jalapenos and 4)Can of whole roasted Chilies - So of course I heated up a pan and put it all together!
I thought about reducing the mix and making a nice sauce for pasta. I even started boiling the water for it. I’m rather impatient however.
*Instead I put it on a plate full of baby spinach.
It was a fiery sauce, made comfy with its tomato base. Until next time.
Hot Summer Days calls for Cold Drinks
Trader Joe’s got your back. Almond Milk, Frozen Mixed Berries along with a Banana makes for a great fruit smoothie. Special thanks to @aimee587 for teaching me this delicious drink. Until next time.
Healthy Leftover Options #4
Salmon. Last night’s fish is this morning’s fish tacos :)
*Chop some onions, slice some of that leftover green bell pepper and shred some carrots and there you have it!
Until next time
After eating leftovers all day I decided to make salmon for dinner.
Sprinkled with Kosher Salt, Old Bay Seasoning, thin slices of Lime, and some butter… 400 degrees and 26 minutes later. DONE!
Served it with a side of roasted cauliflower and broccoli.
-made the whole salmon so it looks like it’s back to leftovers tomorrow :)
Until next time
