My FBS this morning was 101. I plan to make it even lower. I tried my best to eat wheat-free today and just had 1/2 C. of rice the whole day. When I was about to take my evening medications, I noticed I forgot to drink my am meds! Oh no! My fbs might go higher tomorrow after following an almost wheat-free diet today. I asked Dr. Tricia if I can take it before bedtime, she said I could.
I went to Cash and Carry supermarket today and I saw a lot of things we normally do not have in Rustans!
I was able to buy Sole fish.... I cooked it ala Sole Meuniere sans the flour for dredging.
Lemon Butter Sole
250 g. Sole, cleaned and skin removed
2 T. butter
juice of half a lemon
freshly ground black pepper
Season the fish with salt and pepper.
On a non-stick pan, melt the butter until not foamy anymore. Then place the fish on the pan, turn when the bottom side is a bit brown and cook until the other side is also the same color.
You may add a bit more butter at this stage but I did not anymore.
Season the lemon juice with salt and pepper and pour over the fish. Let it sizzle then transfer the fish on a plate.
I assembled a small plate of salad with no dressing. I actually prefer my salad this way instead of adding vinaigrette which I find too tart sometimes and I do not like the taste of olive oil.
I just added green pears and black grapes to romaine lettuce.
I enjoyed my dinner so much!
My loot from Cash and Carry.....
Peanut oil, Suka tuba and Mama Sitas Inasal Marinade!!! I am excited about the sukang tuba because in Cebu that was what they use for the dipping sauces of the lechon and the ngo hiong!!!!
I made my very first successful poached egg this morning!!! Hahahaha ... well ... almost perfect.
Chef Rainbow taught us, it was so easy!!! I used water instead of oil to fry the egg!
1 poached egg
half a can of Hot and Spicy tuna
1/4 K. Lydias Lechon
1/2 C. white rice
handful of almonds
1 pc. siomai
1 pc. of hakaw with no wrapper
1 small stick pork bbq
My Kuya offered me a lot of snacks for merienda but I just got 1 pc. each.
250 g. Pan-fried Sole with Lemon Butter
small plate of romaine with pears and black grapes
