豚薄切りの野菜卷き- Rolled Pork with Vegetables


Made this last night for dinner. I have only recently found out that my supermarket sells thinly sliced pork belly which are perfect for making these rolls. I was so happy to see them that I bought them without knowing how much exactly they cost. That's why Hubby is the one who does the marketing. It if were left to me, I think we would be living in the streets now.

These rolls are very easy to make. Cut the asparagus and carrots into match stick size and dump them into boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain. Pick up 2 asparagus sticks and 2 carrot sticks and roll them in a slice of pork. Place the rolled end down. When done with rolling, simply sprinkle some salt and pepper on top of the rolls. In a hot pan with little oil, place the rolled end side down and fry until the pork is cooked and slightly browned.

Simple? You bet, but quite time consuming. I had to do these super fast as my little princess was hungery and bored. So while I was still frying up the last batch of the rolls, she had already dug into her dinner.

  2. I have seen others wrap with red/green/yellow peppers and also green string beans. But make sure you remember to boil them first so that they finish cooking when you are frying them in the rolls.

    Good luck!

Post-meditated Pumpkin and Mushroom Soup

I cannot help but notice that recently the trendy words that seem to flood the wellness media always carry words like “self-care”, “meditation”, “gratitude”, and even “mindfulness” has been thrown in for good measure. Yes, all these single-word suggestions sound good. We all need to know how to take our stress level down a few notches at a time when we need to keep our face masks up.  So when I read the news about a nail being found in the pumpkin mushroom soup of an unidentified Asian passenger on board our national carrier bound for Auckland, imagine my dilemma. Should I feel grateful that my previous soups on board were served without any nails? Or should I feel grateful that I could not afford to fly our national carrier often enough to be served soups which might actually have carried nails or other specials in them? As you can see, I am pretty new to this wellness speak and hence very confused about this “gratitude” aspect of the trend.     Like any dutiful social m

Rosemary Cuttings

I think I am really bored with life. So bored that I am trying my hands are transplanting my rosemary plant! This is just after I killed by some mint off-shoots recently by transplanting them. I have black fingers, I think. Not that I need another rosemary plant. I am just plain curious why some people here are able to root a cutting from a Cold Storage pack . It sounds so easy that it is absurdly unfair. Maybe it is just my lack of technique and common sense when it comes to plants. Here's a link that I found helpful about transplanting rosemary . Seems that the chances of success for my transplanted rosemary doesn't look high. I didn't dip it in rooting powder (!!??), I transplanted it in medium sized container, and the soil is of highly questionable source (don't ask). Well, if the little fellow didn't make it, you will hear of it here soon.

Comparing Banana Breads

Most of the times, at least for the logical people, baking is the last thing on their minds as who would want their kitchens filled with hot air churning out from the ovens  in the land of eternal summer? If not for  those limp and blackened bananas sitting in their Tupperware coffins, dawdling towards its expiry, I would have happily nodded my head in wholehearted agreement. These banana were long gone their prime time for smoothies but these were ironically the best state to make banana-anything. If my helper was still around, I would have happily asked her to make those arteries-clogging Jemput-Jemput (aka banana fritters), unfortunately, she was not. So I cranked up my oven to 180 degC and got down to work. I have made banana bread many times with the recipe from Joy of Cooking ('97 edition) and was quite happy with it. So when I realised that JOC came up with a 2019 edition, I knew I need to get my paws on it ASAP and try out that version of Banana Bread.  So thanks to
