pesto cod w zucchinis & tomatoes

2011.06.28 § Leave a comment

if you know me well, you know i’m not a big cook… i mean i love to, but it is hard when you don’t have your own kitchen to practice in…

it was one of those rare occasions that i rolled up my sleeves… hence my cod, actually i think it was halibut to be exact was slightly under-cooked…

i felt so embarrassed that i had to nuke it… sorry mon l’amie… i will do better next time…

at least the Tomato Tofu Egg Drop Soup 番茄豆腐蛋花湯 was alright…

Ingredients:
2 tomatoes
1/2 package of tofu
2 eggs, whisked
2 cups water
1 cup vegetable stock or chicken stock
salt, to taste

Method:
Rinse the tomatoes.
Soak in boiling water for a few minutes and remove the skin if desired.
Cut into smaller pieces and remove the seeds. Set aside.
Cut tofu in to 1 to 1.5cm cubes.
Use a large pot, pour in water and the stock, then bring to boil over medium-high heat.
Add the tomatoes and cook until tender. Lower the tofu carefully. Once it boils again.

Turn off the heat.
Steadily pour in the whisked egg and gently stir around with chopsticks, a large spoon or a fork.
The egg should immediately turn into ribbons. Season with salt. Serve hot.

mon l’amie and i love food… i mean we love good food… and because we love good food so much… he also really enjoys cooking…

i must say he is much more gifted than me when it comes to cooking up a storm…

our idiocracy when it comes to cooking… he tends to over-cook and i under-cook… we need a happy medium… one day =)

although it was a long and stressful day for chef lui… he still cooked =)

it is the lil luxuries and tender moments spent together that really melts my heart…

it is big hugs and forehead kisses that imprints on your soul…

it is the words of encouragement and mutual support that pushes me forward…

 

tonight…

i have mango salsa pasta w chicken to be thankful for… (the chicken could be more succulent … but who’s counting? overall: delish… )

well done, mon l’amie ❤

bonjour montreal… au revior

2011.06.26 § Leave a comment

montreal is an incredibly romantic city given the right person at the right time…

last week i was able to extend my work conference for the weekend to do a lil exploring with mon l’amie…

cathedrals, vieux montreal at night, st laurent street food and patios <3s

montreal 2011 … a weekend to remember o”o

 

if you made 2 wishes over the fountain – eternal happiness together or being filthy rich…

i’d say eternal happiness… if being rich but miserable together… i rather to be happily working hard together … hands down w/o a doubt!

 

Where Am I?
