Wink Re: What's for Dinner - Chapter 3

tonight's supper menu at my house: Roast beef with gravy (secret ingredient of campbell's golden mushroom soup, a little water and sprinkling of onion soup mix...shhhh and don't tell) , field peas with greenbeans, sticky rice for the gravy and steamed cabbage. Yup, there are enough leftovers for lunch at work tomorrow, if I can keep the teenager out of the rice and gravy. Now for dessert--I found a box of Girl Scout thin mints!

Fried Spam and cheese sandwich? I thought you were eating healthy.

As for me, oden (frozen, from Don Quiote) with daikon and Chinese mustard cabbage, and a small bottle of sake. That was my healthy one-day-in-the-week meal. Tomorrow, maybe a plate lunch.

i made a very ugly, but tasty enough whole wheat mac and cheese with turkey taco filling. the original plan was to make the mac and cheese in a pot, the taco meat in the pan, and once both were cooked, combine the two. but i got lazy. i cooked the noodles. i cooked & seasoned the turkey (my own spice mix of chili powder, cumin, oregano & cinnamon). i dumped the noodles into the pan with the turkey, then poured the milk/egg/dry mustard mixture in with the meat/noodles and folded in the shredded cheddar/colby/monterey jack. it all blended into a homogenous lump of gray-brown bleh.

ah well. eric seemed to like it well enough, and while i am dissatisfied, it did taste good...just not as good as it would have had i cooked the dish the way i intended. thank goodness i have friends who are single and don't get much home cooking, cause we have enough for six more healthy servings.

Red face Re: What's for Dinner - Chapter 4

My mom took my family and I out for my birthday to Tsukiji Fish Market & Restaurant at Ala Moana Center, part of the Ho'okipa Terrace. Very nice, much more upscale than feeding troughs like Todai and Makino Chaya. But, ultimately, it's a buffet, so for all the bulk, the quality seemed rather sterile and uninspired. At least the kids ate well... and they ate free, too!



Turns out photography is not allowed, though of course notification came somewhat late in the meal. See all the photos they don't want you to see here!

Oh no, I never claimed to be eating "healthy"! I am just eating less. I eat those breakfast bars for breakfast and lunch, then for dinner, i just eat less of whatever it is we're having. I don't do "healthy"

The sandwich did have only 1 piece of bread, instead of two ...

eric & i went to sunrise restaurant on kapahulu. we had the special miso soup & sushi combo (about $13.00), the pork-goya champuru (about $8.00) and the saba, which also came with a spring salad (about $7.00). what i really wanted was the nakami champuru but ran out already. no matter--the prices are right, and we're always greeted like family, no matter how long it's been since we last were there. besides, it's sweet for me to see how eric's face relaxes into contentment everytime we go. he said it reminds him of his grandaunt's house back in small keed days.

nadine kam did a review of sunrise back in 2001 here.

Friends and I went to New Mui Kwai on Liliha. We had the honey-glazed walnut shrimp (quite good), the garlic eggplant (very good), and the barbecue beef sizzling platter (pretty good).

Our favorite light supper....hot rice, fried egg, and sardines fried in shoyu...all topped with ketchup.

The cat got the sardine oil from the can.

Wow. A Mui Kwai in Liliha. I thought they were only located in Kaneohe.

Not that you'd find me going there. I'm so not into Chinese food (except Manapua kinda' stuff).

P.K. and I went to Genki Sushi Ala Moana! Someone should have warned us!

I'm warning you!

We were seated at our table. I looked at the menu. We ordered Miso Soup. Our waitress told us they ran out and it would take twenty minutes. We said ok. I ordered the Teriyaki Bowl, Dynamite Tempura, Dragon Roll, and Fried Tako pieces. From the conveyor belt, we took Cold Somen Noodles, Tuna Sushi, Shrimp Tempura, Ahi Sushi, Won Ton wrapped around something sweet and flaked with powdered sugar.

K-den. The oil they used was dirty. The shrimp was the worst I've tasted. The Fried Tako was horrors! Our waitress told us they ran outta rice if we wouldn't mind having our Teriyaki with Sushi? We were already "Sushied Out! We wanted plain rice for a change.

The Miso Soup we waited finally came. It tasted like flavored hot wata!

Foa Shame!

The Dynamite Tempura, Dragon Roll and Ahi Sushi were good.
