You may not think the flavors work together (worked for me). Spicy, sweet, tart, salty, bitter, all in one dish. :)

Enjoy. Eat well.

Eating Weird

Even for me. Post holiday trying to get back to “normal”. Doctor’s appointment today, results not bad, could be better. Tells me to eat more fruits and vegetables, cut back on salt and sugar. Grumble grumble okay okay.

Dinner was a mixed bag.

Canned Tuna (packed in water), Prunes, Sweet Potato

Has to be toasted, crunchy on  the outside, still chewy on the inside.

For The Cat, tried some new ingredients (or ingredients I haven’t used in a long time).

Fish Head Soup

Fish Head Soup

Fish head soup with Napa cabbage, dried mung beans, dried shrimp, dried wakame seaweed, fish head (of course), and whiskey/Shao Xing wine.

One of those throw everything together and hope for the best soups (turned out okay).

Enjoy. Eat well.

Waiting for Santa

Also known as Christmas Eve dinner. Fortunate enough to be invited by one of our mentors to sup  with her family.

Too bad we were situated in a private room, not much chance of listening to the live music.

A rare event, both The Cat and The Mouse picked the same choices.

Appetizer

Medley of mushrooms and Burgundy escargot, “Vole Au Vent”, truffle cream sauce. Wonderful. In a puff pastry. For me, a side of rice would have been perfect.

Intermezzo

Cranberry sorbet, very tart, reminded me of li hing mui.

Seared Chilean Sea Bass, Kabocha Squash Puree, "Keiki Portabello Persillades", Creamy Leeks

The sea bass was excellent, however, the squash puree was “to kill for”, highpoint of the dish for me.

Sterling Silver Beef Tenderloin, Béarnaise Sauce, Pomme Parisienne, Braised Endive, Provencal Zucchini

My neighbor’s plate. She said beef was cooked to perfection, medium rare.

The little red dots with white dots on the whipped cream? Tiny little mushrooms.

See? Cute Yeah?

Kinda snuck up on us this year. Part of the day shopping for presents (have to go back tomorrow too). Sigh. Dinner was kinda unplanned, even more so than usual.  Stuff I could do quickly (except for some prep time).

Stir-Fried Cucumber

Or, lomi salmon, the poor Mouse version.

Lomi lomi salmon, a luau staple. I have no archaeological nor anthropological evidence, just a feeling that lomi salmon is a westernized version of poké.

The Mouse loves both poké and lomi salmon

Anyway, salted salmon (main ingredient of lomi salmon) and poké are luxury items rarely seen, if at all, at our house. When I have the munchies for lomi salmon, have to make do with the Mouse canned version.

Chopped onions, green onions, diced tomato, and canned salmon.

Mix to incorporate.

Tah Dah!

Pink salmon, this time around. A distant relative of real lomi salmon, but, close your eyes and it kinda works. Now, if I only had poi. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.
