Experiment & Practice [Just Drink & Food Pics]

A bunch of food dishes & drinks that I’ve made either on a spur of a moment or for whatever reasons #justbecause. =P  Have fun eye-goggling or being repulsed by it, you food-porn perverts.

Bay Breeze…a really nice cocktail for the summer or when you want a refreshing moment.

Mojito...my first alcoholic cocktail and I remembered drinking it during my lunch break (without any of my co-workers & managers) knowing of course. XD I think it was my first tax season after graduation and I was insanely stressed that time.

A fruit parfait to rewind after a long day of work can never go wrong...NEVER!!

Not the most interesting vegetarian pizza in the world, but I was making it for my dinner and I was lazy, so I opened a can of mixed veggi instead of cutting up some "real" veggi. This pizza is definitely friendly to those who can't eat egg because I specifically made a small set of pizza dough with the absence of egg (for myself). The result is surprisingly the same as those pizza doughs made with eggs.

And finally, here's a dish for the meat-eaters, the Jade Chicken. My father taught me this dish and it is a tribute to the original Vong's Restaurant Jade Chicken. Vong's Restaurant, for those new generation foodies who don't know, was a very famous Chinese restaurant in Vancouver about a couple of decades ago.

Just a random unnamed non-alcoholic cocktail with mint leaves, because I like mint leaves~ ^^

Vegetarian almond fried rice. Unfortunately even with my amateur skills, this tasted a heck lot better than many Chinese restaurants in Saskatoon. ^^" Not even bragging...seriously.

Mushroom is a very versatile veggi and stuffed mushroom caps are very easy to make. Quick ingredients for this particular stuffed mushroom cap recipe: goat cheese, miso paste, evaporated milk, finely chopped mushroom stems, and the mushroom caps itself. Assemble everything and bake it for about 15 to 20 minutes at high temperate.

Just a side view of the baked stuffed mushroom caps. Such a quick & delicious comfort snack! ^^ Suddenly, I want to make another batch~ =D

  1. Happy lunar new year!!!!!!! And gong hey fat choy to you and your dad! Like I’ve said, hopefully your “long men ke zhan” is doing a roaring business! 😀 😀

    Just in case you’ll be watching the drama, you may want to skip the last paragraph of my Feb 8 post, which contains spoilerish stuff. And the paragraph immediately after the “ten chestnuts” lyrics. >.< I did put a "spoiler alert" tag but not everybody would notice it.
