Fruitography- Apple's

"An apple a day keeps the doctor away"

Apple facts:  
  • Apple's are sodium, fat and cholesterol free.  
  • Apple's are packed with antioxidants!
  • Don't peel the skin! The apple skin contains more antioxidants and fiber than the apple flesh.  
  • Apple's have anti-carcinogenic properties, and could prevent you from the potential risks of developing cancers.  
  • Apples are delicious!

Vegetable Tofu Curry

Made some vegetable tofu curry a while back!  I really wanted a healthy alternative to all the junk food I was consuming at the time.  So I bought myself some tofu and a whole bunch of veggies! This is what happened next...

Meat & Bread

This is how I spend my Saturdays! Wake up, find a place to eat, and wander around downtown.  

Porchetta- Rossdown Farms Turkey Thigh, Lemon Rosemary Jus, Spiced Pickled Cabbage, Roast Garlic Aioli, Pea Sprout

I've returned to Meat & Bread many times!  I do enjoy eating sandwiches, and I love eating crispy pork! This place is definitely worth visiting, especially if you enjoy eating sandwiches.  One of the best thing about this place is that they make their own bread, their bread has a crunchy/chewy texture.     

The sandwiches usually leave me feeling satisfied, however if you are still hungry, you should go for some maple bacon ice cream, which I would love to try some time soon!  It sounds very interesting, and sounds like a delicious combination.  Maple & Bacon are two ingredients that would seem to work well together.  

Meat and Bread very cool, casual and relaxed atmosphere.  People are always popping in and out of the shop, since the food's served fast.  I personally don't mind sitting at the long table.  Oh, I love the SIP natural handcrafted soda's that they serve here, I personally enjoyed the rosemary-lemon flavor.

Overall I would recommend Meat & Bread to those who enjoy sandwiches.

Yogurtland Seattle

What's not to love?

I love this place, there's so many different flavors and toppings to choose from.  I've tried just about every flavor that the store had to offer.  Yogurtland is possibly the best frozen yogurt store I've been to thus far.  I think we definitely need a place like this in Vancouver.  I would pretty much drive all the way from Vancouver to Seattle just to satisfy my frozen yogurt craving.  

Green Apple, Original, Graham Cracker, Chocolate, Taro, Peanut Butter Mochi, Skors, and Cookie Dough

I want a yogurtland here!! (Vancouver) :)

Butter Chicken + Briyani + Dal

I decided I wanted to eat butter chicken one night, so I bought some butter chicken sauce, dal, and briyani rice.  

The briyani rice is from Trader Joes, it's not bad, but it's not authentic.  It has ingrediants like peppers, potatoes, peas, and raisins.  It's looks pretty too.  It's not the best briyani, but it's good enough.  It came frozen too, so my expectations were not that high.  

The dal was from a package,  it tasted very salty, and did not have much flavor. 

The butter chicken was the best because I bought fresh chicken breast and cooked it in butter chicken sauce for over 2 hours.  The dish was flavorful, it smelled of delicious spices. The butter adds a mellow touch to the dish.   For an unhealthy alternative,  please use chicken drumsticks, or chicken thighs, dark meat! :)  

One day I will make my own butter chicken sauce.  I just need search for some spices and I'll be set!
