"Yan Yat"

Last Saturday was "Yan Yat" - every body's birthday! That was the seventh day of the Chinese Lunar New Year where everybody grows one year older!

My local neighborhood Catholic community (BEC) organized a BBQ. I marinated the Lamb, bought fish from the North Port fishmongers and made a topping for the potatoes.

There is a block of Philadelphia soft cheese, mayonnaise, chopped white onion, chopped celery, mustard, freshly ground black pepper and salt in the tub below.

Fried some chopped bacon.

Crispy and fragrant bacon in a bowl.

Added the fried bacon bits to the cheese mixture.

This was the first to go at the BBQ!

1 block of Philadelphia soft cheese
1 1/2 cups of mayonnaise
1 large white onion (Chopped)
1 1/2 sticks of celery (Chopped)
1 tsp of English Mustard
6 pcs of back bacon (cut in bits and fried)
Freshly ground black pepper and salt to taste

Mix everything up well.

Long bean tamagoyaki

#2's having exams and hours at college are over 1 1/2 - 2 hours. Too short to warrant a bento.

Last week, I made sushi again and this time when I made the tamagoyaki, I added chopped long beans and some chopped Chinese pickled radish (sweet choi poh).

It was basically 2 large eggs, 3 strands of long beans (chopped), hand ful of chopped "Choi Poh", 3 tbsp dashi and 1 tbsp of sugar. Below are some pictures.

After one layer:

Long bean tamagoyaki sliced and ready for use in sushi:

I was surprised, everyone liked it and was finished in no time!
