I have a new favorite, it is Steamed Vegetarian Dumplings with Truffle Oil of Lugang Cafe.
I have eaten there 3 times already in less than a week.
PD ordered the Crab Roe and Pork Dumplings.
She said it was very good and asked me to try. I said I cannot.
We shared on order of our favorite Mango Flavored Shaved Ice.
I really love this dessert.
Earlier in the day, we had lunch at Modern China Restaurant in Glorietta.
I had the E-Fu noodles. I only had a couple of servings.
PD ordered the Vegetarian Vegetable Casserole for me.
She had half a Peking Duck.
She said it might be too much for her, but reminded my Aunt that we used to share a whole duck, so half order was just right for one person.
I asked the duck carver to make one roll for me without the duck, just the vegetables and hoisin sauce.
It was good enough for me.
I discovered if you use the pressure cooker to boil the corn, the kernels turn out plumper and juicier.
The Diabetes book said I could have baked tortilla.
So I bought Tostitos Baked Tortilla and ate it with fresh salsa.
1 C. ripe tomatoes, seeds removed and diced
1/3 C. white onion, chopped
juice of 1 lime
1/8 t. rock salt
1/2 t. sugar
1 T. wansoy, chopped
Mix all the ingredients and chill for a few minutes.
Sometimes, I do not recognize myself anymore with this new change in my lifestyle.
Lia used to saute almost everything with pork fat!
A lot of people are rooting for me to succeed, I also have a lot of doubting Thomases. I do not blame them. I usually cannot stick to a program.
So.... each day is a battle won.
