“Fried” Salad

The prototype.

"Fried" Salad - First Attempt

“Fried” Salad – First Attempt

Romaine lettuce, slightly stir-fried with sun-dried tomato.

Last night.

"Fried" Salad - The Sequel

“Fried” Salad – The Sequel

Romaine lettuce, caramelized onion, celery, sun-dried tomato. Finished with fresh ground black pepper and a dash of dark rum. :)

Why “fried” salad? Because of the lettuce.

Sautéed, stir-fried, chop suey … semantics. Hee hee.

Still trying to eat “colorful” foods.

Happy long weekend (if you happen to have one).

Enjoy. Eat well.

Dinner with friends last night (he helped to put our fence and gate back together). Couple of months ago, the fence and gate did a humpty dumpty. Shutting up now.

Because he and his familia like Italian

Mouse's Panzanella Salad

Mouse’s Panzanella Salad with Grilled Chicken

Too much vinegar. Way overdressed.

Cat's Steamed Clams

Cat’s Steamed Clams

The Cat thought the sausage muddled the clam taste.

Mushroom Rissotto

Mushroom Risotto

The avocado is from The Mouse’s salad. One of the better risotto The Cat has tried. Not al dente, softer (a good thing according to The Cat).

The Friend's Daughter's Cheese Ravioli - Child's Portion

The Friend’s Daughter’s Cheese Ravioli – Child’s Portion

More like a little pasta with her cheese dinner (in a good way according to her).

Thought I was having a 60’s flashback. She enjoyed it.

Whiskey Caramel Ice Cream

Whiskey Caramel Ice Cream

Adult’s dessert. Highlight of the dinner. Even The Mouse (who is lactose intolerant) took a couple of lactase enzyme pills to eat this. It was that good. Too bad it was only a daily flavor. Must track/hunt down the supplier.

To all you mothers out there. Happy day!

Oops wasn’t that silent. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

A Little Late

For St. Paddy’s Day, at least it’s still March.

Green Tea Oreo

Omiyage from a co-worker. Can’t wait to try. :)

Brush

Brush

To clean the coffee pot, mugs, and cups. Reminds me either of a Muppet or a Dr. Seuss character.

Lunch

Lunch

Three salad sampler. Peas and bacon, curried chicken Waldorf salad (with apples, grapes, and almonds), and pasta salad.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Free Food Wednesday

Wasn’t planned, just happened.

Pizza Hut!

Pizza Hut!

From one of the managers, lunchtime. Dunno why. Maybe she wanted pizza and didn’t want to eat alone? Pizza, breadstick, chicken wing. Since lunchtime for me is around 10:30 in the morning (don’t ask, I have a funny schedule, not my choice), this was more like a teatime snack (I was drinking black tea at the time).

Manapua!

Manapua!

From one of The Cat’s clients (I got the leftovers). The one with no dots is char siu bao :), the one with two dots is a mystery (some kinda ground pork mixture).

Two Dot Chomp View

Was ok.

I case you’re wondering, I did get some fiber today.

Breakfast

Breakfast

Multi-grain toast with butter and Vegemite (I was trying to channel Jackson Pollock and not doing a very good job at it).

Lunch

Lunch

Tuna salad. I ate lunch before I knew pizza was coming.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Not to freaky, maybe just a little weird (trust me it could’ve been weirder).

Planned on a salad for lunch today (trying to cut down on carbs for a while). Lunch spots nearby either are not oriented towards salads (more protein and starch kinda places), or way too expensive (in my opinion) for what’s presented.

Decided on Chinese chicken salad from the nearby Chinese greasy spoon. While not my favorite of salad choices (just romaine lettuce), quantity and price is “fair”.

Have to mention the salad dressing.

Salad Dressing

Salad Dressing

Have to mention the salad dressing. The picture does not do it justice. The color is almost neon. Not sure this color happens in nature.

To add a little variety to the salad, I brought along some ingredients from home.

Braised Pork Belly, Dried Cranberries, Chinese style Scrambled Eggs, and Prunes

Braised Pork Belly, Dried Cranberries, Chinese style Scrambled Eggs, and Prunes

Not all went into the salad, just the dried cranberries and prunes. I’ve recently become infatuated with adding dried fruit to savory salads, guess its that salty-sweet combo.

Dinner had the potential to become “freaky”-ish, but didn’t. Had to make a Costco run for vitamins. Dinner at Max’s of Manila close by. Considered ordering pork blood stew, sizzling pork cheeks, or crispy pork hock, but in the end, stayed conservative.

Snapper Filets with Black Bean Sauce

Colorful no?

Pinakbet

Vegetables (with a little bit of pork), a good thing, according to my doctor’s request. Although the shrimp paste might throw him in a tizzy.

Sizzling Tofu

Cat  ended dinner with a scoop of ice cream.

Ube Ice Cream

Could be considered by the uninitiated as being a little freaky. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.
