Quarantine dinner #33 Tuna salad

By |2020-11-14T23:48:41+00:00April 23rd, 2020|

Something fishy going is on... Tuna fish salad ether you like it or you don’t. I am trying to think of foods that either you love or hate Like marmite Marmite or surstromming that's a hardcore love or hate option. Surströmming No in between like I’ll eat it but it’s not my favorite. Tuna fish salad has been eaten for over 100 years back then tuna was cheaper than chicken. Now chicken is a few bucks for a whole one and pound of tuna is over 18.00 a pound. The chicken salad was also very

Quarantine dinner #18 Loco mock

By |2020-11-15T02:05:44+00:00April 7th, 2020|

Loco moco is a dish that can be only be found in one place Hawaii! ...well 2 places my home also. Just like poi it’s only local to the islands of Hawaii. Loco moco is a simple dish of a juicy burger on top of rice with beef gravy and then topped with a fried egg and onions or scallion are also added.

Quarantine dinner #16 bulgogi

By |2020-11-15T02:08:20+00:00April 4th, 2020|

I had only 1 small steak so I used in a a way that everyone could share it. That is why I like to cook Asian food it’s a good balance and you don’t need a lot of protein. American style would have been 1 steak per person them potatoes and a veg. Korean bulgogi beef and fried dice fish with sushi rice sides with ginger broccoli and kimchi.
