12:30pm Lunch : Takikomi Gohan(leftovers), a glass of water, mango
6:00pm Dinner : Hamburger, vegetable sticks with hummus, water melon
Anytime water 16 oz
Ooops! I forgot to take a picture of Hamburger. It was really rare for me to make it. Most of the time, J is in charge of Hamburger. You know, he must know better than me. J enjoyed my hamburger anyway.
My camera seems to be broken. It looks like I took a picture in the fog.
We had a guest from the U.S. I was going to cook, but we lost electoric power because of a storm. So we decided to eat out. We had some restaurants close by, but they also lost power. It sometimes happens, we lose power after a heavy rain but we usually get power back soon. Now we know why we lost it for a long time. Loot at the picture below. Anyway we found a restaurant. The first dinner for the guest in Brazil was Sushi..... I hope he enjoyed Japanese cuisine in Brazil.
This is why we lost power.
It was first time for me to try making Brazilian food. When I made feijao, I went online to chat with Brazilian friend and she helped me. Thanks Sil!
I visited my friend and brought food for lunch. The leftover was dinner. That's why I ate the same food. I don't care to eat same meal twice in a day. Which do you prefer between cooking again and eating same food? I cooked a piece of salmon for hungry J.

I made chicken broth from chicken bones. It was really good. It would be better if I had celery. It was a small dinner, but it's ok. I ate too much at lunch. J might have popcorn or something later.

I was too tired to make dinner. But we had to eat. So I made only ramen and fried rice. I wanted to have more vegetables tonight, because we ate a lot of meat and less vegetable last night. I will make better dinner tommorow.
Dinner's theme was Korean! I had one beer during cooking. Because the food smelled good and J came back home later than usual. I was hungry. That means I snitched some food with beer.
Did dinner look big? This is kind of cheating. I had more plates than usual to hide not having enough animal protein. There are only eggs in the stir-fry and salmon in the fried rice. The eggplant was pretty good. It was a little bit oily. I will remake and change some ingredients, and if it works well, I will put a recipe here.
Ingredients : serves 2
1 cup fish broth
1 tbs soy sauce
1 tsp sugar
1 pinch Katsuobushi(dried bonito flakes)
1. Slice eggplant into 2 and make some slit on the skin. Cut it into a few pieces.
2. Put all ingredients and cook until the eggplant gets tender
11:00am Lunch : salad, mash potatoes, beef stew, a glass of water
3:30pm a cup of coffee
6:00pm Dinner : Chirashizushi, Sawara Miso-ni, Shitake soup
9:00pm-10:30pm beer 350 ml x 3
I somehow made dinner with few ingredients. There's no fresh vegetables and a small variation of food. However I could cheat J's appetite by Chirashizushi, which is his favorite. I am going to a feira(market) and have time to cook tomorrow. I will make something good for dinner.
I don't have vegetables in my fridge. I have one more day until going to feira(martet). Ingredients for dinner are rice, salmon, onion, garlic, carrot and zucchini. That's all. We had more food for lunch. I can go to a grocery store, but I'd like to handle it with food I get once a week at feira.
What am I gonna make tomorrow? J, please eat lots at lunch at work. Your dinner might be only bread and cheese. Ooops, I don't have bread either....
Ingredients : serves 2 - 3
1 middle carrot - cut thin
1 middle onion - slice
1 green pepper - sliver
1 zucchini - cut it into round slices
3 egg - whisk
1/4 cup milk
a little salt and pepper
1 tbs ketchup
some mount parmesan cheese - grate
some mount provolone - slice some pieces
1. Pre-heat oven 200 C and spread oil or butter on a heat-resistant plate
2. Stir-fry carrot, onion, green pepper and zucchini with oil. When it is cooked, add ketchup and off the heat
3. Mix egg, milk and parmesan cheese
4. Put #2 in #3 and mix and Pour it into the plate and sprinkle provolone on
5. Cook it in the oven for 30 minutes
Other vegetables also works. Add miced meat make the omlet taste better. The cheese doesn't need to be those kinds above. The cheese from the bag for pizza would be easier.
I was not energetic at all today. I didn't even want to make lunch. So I went to Yakisoba house. I ordered Fried chicken. It was huge, but it was no problem for me to finish it. The lady who was working here brought me a doggy bag, but I had already eaten. She was surprised how hungry I was. The fried chicken was really good. It was not like American fried chiken. It was Japanese fried chiken, Karaage. I will order some for someday's dinner at home.
For dinner, I was going to grill beef, but I changed my mind. I could say I was just too lazy to go to a grocery store. It doesn't matter what I cook, it is Friday! I enjoy drinking! The bus was not crowded, but I was thirsty for beer when I got home. My body must have known it was Friday. I had a drink while I was cooking. Weekends rock!
