The Sauce In Shawarma

Whenever I go to a mall, or when I get hungry after a few hours of window shopping, I always go for the quick and easy snack and shawarma is definitely on the list. I mean it’s really one of the best comfort foods for me. I really love it and now my mouth salivates, just writing about it. How could I resist this food? It’s such a healthy snack, shreds of beef, strips of cucumber and tomato and a bit of onion wrapped with pita bread. And you know what really makes this treat so appetizing? It’s the sauce!

Yes, the sauce is the one that makes this delectable treat amazing. It makes me wonder how you make the sauce; every time I eat it makes me wonder the distinct flavor of the sauce. I Google for an answer and found out that there’s a lot of variations. And I found these ingredients best suits the flavor I tasted. The ingredients are; plain yogurt, peeled cucumber, two tablespoon olive oil, half juiced lemon, 3 gloves garlic, 1 tablespoon fresh dill and salt and pepper to taste. You have to mix all of these in a food processor and refrigerate it to bring out the best flavor. The sauce is so good I even put that on my vegetable salad.

Gooey-Yummy Mochi Balls

When I was nine, I desperately wanted some changes in my daily activities. I couldn’t figure out what I wanted to do, but I knew for certain that I was passionate about watching my sister prepare gourmet dishes. She cooks the best food ever! Her cooking abilities fueled my passion for cooking. I began preparing dishes for my family, and I found the process fascinating.

I’ve always had this love for desserts. So I will share how to make Choco-Berry Mochi Balls (chilled rice balls). Work on the filling first. Roll 6 tablespoons of strawberry jam into 6 balls. Wrap each with chocolate spread. Roll again then chill for 20 minutes. On to the Mochi now. In a microwaveable bowl, mix water, sugar, and glutinous rice flour. Microwave for 2 minutes, stirring mixture every 30 seconds. Remove mochi from bowl and divide into 6 pieces. Dust a flat pan with sweet potato starch and flatten each piece of mochi. Wrap mochi around the chocolate-strawberry balls. Chill until ready to serve. Enjoy!

Getting a Classic Electric Guitars for my Boys

My son is into rock and roll. He has his own drums which I gave two years ago on his birthday. Now he’s trying to learn how to play the ibanez jet king. I wanted to surprise him by giving 2 classic martin acoustic electric guitars. You may ask me why it had to be two, but it is actually for my husband when they want to play acoustic sounds together.

I had no regrets buying two guitars for the men in my life. In fact, I find this a great musical instrument to bond with everyone. My husband gets to teach him old songs which should reminisce old days. My son too gets to play the guitar while his younger sister demands Justin Bieber songs.

A Love Affair with Food

I so love my teammates at work and our frequent lunch out together. It all started when they asked me to go with them to the mall and dined at Gerry’s Grill. We had so much fun and I know I wouldn’t want it to stop from there. So after that, we always go on lunch out after work. Sometimes we drink, sometimes we don’t.

Today’s lunch was in North Park. It was like a feast for I ate a lot. I had Boneless Honey Lemon Chicken (Boneless chicken marinated in freshly squeezed lemon juice and seasonings, thickly coated with honey lemon goodness), Soft Tofu Veggie Stir-Fry (Highly nutritious, protein rich, custard like silky soft bean curd, sautéed with crisp broccoli florets, and straw mushroom halves. Topped with fried garlic. A delicious vegetarian dish of protein and fiber-combo.), and Stir Fry Beef with Imported Broccoli Flower (Stir fry savory lean grass-fed beef mixed with tender-crisp cancer- fighting broccoli florets. This makes a great topper for fried rice.). Honey Lemonade for my drink and Almond Jelly with Lychee for dessert.

Take Me To Tokyo Tokyo

Classes were cancelled earlier at the University for some sort of celebration. My bestfriend and I decided to hit the mall instead of just going straight home. We went shopping for clothes and accessories. When we got tired, we were then in search of a restaurant. We were in the mood for Japanese Food.

There were a few choices and we managed to settle with Tokyo Tokyo. Since we were dead tired and hungry, Tokyo Tokyo’s Sumo Meal is exactly what we need. Unlimited rice, bottomless Red Iced Tea, and we get to pick 2 choices from Pork Tonkatsu, Beef Teriyaki, Shrimp Tempura, Beef Misono, California Maki, or Chicken Teriyaki. Their Red Iced Tea is the best. With all that, our tummies were oh so satisfied, and take note, for that heavy meal, would you believe that the cost is affordable for students like us. So if you’re looking for a place to eat that serves budget friendly heavy meals, head off to Tokyo Tokyo.
