Fish Fillet Burger

(With sauce tartare, tomato and lettuce plus a fly away cheese I put upside down, lol.)

There's this Japanese cooking show that has inspired me to cook some dishes at home that can actually be bought from fast food joints. I was just too lazy to go out or just too in the mood that I made one immediately after watching from Dotchi Cooking show. This show is so interesting because the ingredients used come fresh from farms, from the sea and factories, especially for the show. Also, I get to see a lot of places and learn more about Japanese culture and language too. Nihon ga daisuki desu!

Black Friday

I have often wondered what those Black Friday ads and news are about. I am not from the US but most of my blogging friends are, so I often read what they write about it when I bloghop. I think the idea of this sale is wonderful especially for gadget freaks like me or hubby. Black Friday, as a term has been used in multiple contexts, going back to the nineteenth century, where it was associated with a financial crisis in 1869 it is today associated with special sales and promotions that retailers use to encourage shoppers to use the holiday weekend for shopping. which I have featured here many times in the past is having their online Black Friday. Discounted consoles, laptops, toys, ipods and a lot more gadgets can be bought with big discounts...hurry and get a good deal now!


Need more space...for PC not the kitchen!

I have often been getting errors regarding system memory on this laptop. It's frustrating since the browser shuts down while I'm in the middle of writing. It is also annoying that I can't use  other programs simultaneously. On the other hand, it has helped me prioritize which I should do first so I can finish one work than go "alt-tabbing" on different things.  The hubby promised he'd do something about this but he has been so busy with work and hubby (RCs) that I am extending my's a virtue after all!


Salami Pizza

"A world devoid of tomato soup, tomato sauce, tomato ketchup and tomato paste is hard to visualize. Could the tin and processed food industries have got where they have without the benefit of the tomato compounds which colour, flavour, thicken and conceal so many deficiencies? How did the Italians eat spaghetti before the advent of the tomato? Was there such a thing as tomato-less Neapolitan pizza?"
-Elizabeth David (1913-1992) 'An Omelette and a Glass of Wine', 1984


Home delivered salami pizza saves me when I'm too late for cooking! :)

Winter stock up

It got colder today. Add to that that it's raining. I guess I have to stock up with soup dishes for the winter months and perhaps a dehumidifier, launrdy is taking longer to dry nowadays.

This is my daughter's favorite soup, sadly I don't make this from scratch since I do not have that much time preparing it. But I would love to try it sometime. So I got this from, might as well try:


  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrot
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 2 (28 ounce) cans crushed tomatoes
  • 3 1/2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon vegetarian Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 drops hot pepper sauce


  1. Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Saute onion and garlic until onion is tender.
  2. Add carrot and celery; cook 7 to 9 minutes until tender, stirring frequently. Stir in tomatoes, broth, Worcestershire sauce, salt, thyme, pepper and hot pepper sauce. Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 20 minutes, stirring frequently.


A soup full of vitamin C to fight off the winter cold! Enjoy the week!
