I am in love with steaming my vegetables

leave a comment »

Steamed spinach is better than spinach soup because boiling causes loss of water-soluble vitamins like B / folate, thiamine.

To make my steamed vegetables taste better, I add olive oil after steaming. Simple and tastes heavenly.

Fun fruit juice combination:
1. Watermelon + strawberry
2. Mango + orange
3. Watermelon + carrot + orange
4. Banana + orange

Recipe: oriental mushroom soup

with one comment

minced meat (it will be better if pork ribs)
dried scallops
1 tbs oriental sesame oil
1 tbs minced garlic
1 tbs minced peeled ginger (I will not add this in the future as I do not like the spicy feeling)
red dates
sliced mushrooms: oyster, shitake, snow white, mushroom green head, Termitomyces (jicongjun).
add pepper to suit taste.

1. Fresh mushrooms taste better than dried mushrooms.
2. I do not like the taste of mushroom green head.
3. Inspiration was from mushroom feast (hot pot) in Kunming.
4. I think I put too many mushrooms in my cooking. Now, I am overdosed of them. But, I am still grateful to God for the abundance of food that we have.
5. Pine Mushroom / 松茸 song1rong2 / Matsutake Tricholoma is popular in Japan. It is said that the matsutake were the only “plants” that survived the atomic bombing on Hiroshima in 1945, and since then the Japanese have developed a strong belief in their health benefits. For grilling / pan-fried. I am curious on how it tastes.
6. truffle. I have brought Dad and Mom to Borough Market where we sampled some truffle and brought delicious mushroom pate (good to eat with bread or warm rice). I am so grateful.

Miscellaneous in April 2012

Scotch double sided tape is useless. I cannot remove the adhesive part.
It is better to use single sided tape and fold it.

I want to buy a pair of black formal shoes that cover my toes.
I like Everest brand, soft leather $80 -15%.

April 29, 2012: I do not like my eggplant cooking. Do not buy raw eggplant anymore!

Read Escape from Camp 14.
Love is very important.
Shin betrayed her mother and brother for survival and as a result of his brainwashing (he was raised by the guard to be a snitch).
Shin father was sorry for bringing him to this world.
Though my religion teaching is supporting procreation, but in some circumstances like Shin’s earlier life conditions, living a dignified human life can be very difficult. There are so many Shin-alikes, but only 1 Shin had succeeded to escape.
Reading this book makes me feel sorry for everyone described in the book.
It seems that everyone in the book is a victim of victims.
