What’s Cooking: Baked Fish Fillet

Baked Fish Fillet

Notes:

  • Recipe from here. This recipe had me at cream cheese hahaha!
  • It’s still a little salty for my taste. I think my taste buds adjusted and has lower tolerance for salty foods now. I will really really go easy on salt in all my future cooking, I think especially with fish because they absorb salt quickly.

My version:

Baked Cream Dory 1

↑The pack I bought is around 1 KL. I divided it into 6 pieces. I’ll add more mixed vegetables next time so that I don’t need to pair it with another dish.

Baked Cream Dory 2

↑Closer look. Cream cheese is love hihihi.

What’s Cooking: Steamed Beans

Steamed Beans

Notes:

  • I did not follow any recipe. I just combined what I read from several sources.
  • I just boiled the beans and sauteed it after on butter and garlic.
  • And here’s the most important information I learned. Boiling vegetables should only be until 6 minutes. The moment you go beyond this, it’s already overcooked, hence the natural color changes to a less appetizing one.
  • Given above, what I did (because I still did not have the steamer at that time)  was to first bring the water to a boil before putting the beans in the pot. I also timed it to boil for only 5 minutes. Yes, I used an alarm so that it’s accurate.
  • After 5 minutes, I just drained the water, gathered the beans into one side of the pan so that I could saute the garlic in butter for a few minutes. After that, I mixed the beans with the butter. I also seasoned it with a bit of salt and done.

My version:

Steamed Beans

Beans, Rellenong Bangus, Grapes

I just usually pair it with fish or chicken and some fruits if I feel like eating fruitsI did not make the rellenong bangus. I just bought it from the grocery.

2017 Week 37: Almost Over | Weekend Laziness

September 4-10, 2017

The project we are working on is almost complete. Well, at least the bulk of it. We are targeting to deploy on September 18 even though the launch is still in October. This is to ensure that everything is working in production prior October. Konting-konti na lang, makakatulog din ako ng maayos hehe.

It was a tiring week last week so I was lazy to be a domestic diva.

On Saturday, I woke up late and watched around 3 movies in Netflix.

I went out early evening to meet with a friend. We watched Love to the Stars and Back. The movie will make you laugh and cry.

Joshua Garcia is a promising actor. The kid has talent. This is his second movie I watched and in both movies, I really think he did great.

The supermarket was still open so I dropped by to pick up a few items.

I was really feeling lazy moving my butt last Sunday but I had to force myself because I still need to cook lunch and dinner for this week haha. So off I went to the supermarket again. And then I labored in the kitchen for at least 5 hours. I should really be doing this on a Saturday  hahahaha.

Some meals I cooked.

Baked Cream Dory 1

Macaroni soup

↑ Creamy chicken sopas. Perfect for the rainy days! No hotdogs because I have extended my no pork drama as long as I can hehe.

The end.

Have a great week ahead.

What’s Cooking: Steamed Broccoli Sauteed in Olive Oil

Steamed Broccoli Sauteed in Olive Oil

Notes:

  • I did not follow any recipe. I just combined what I read from several sources.
  • I just boiled the broccoli and sauteed it after on olive oil and garlic.
  • And here’s the most important information I learned. Boiling vegetables should only be until 6 minutes. The moment you go beyond this, it’s already overcooked, hence the natural color changes to a less appetizing one.
  • Given above, what I did (because I still did not have the steamer at that time)  was to first bring the water to a boil before putting the broccoli in the pot. I also timed it to boil for only 5 minutes on medium-high. Yes, I used an alarm so that it’s accurate.
  • After 5 minutes, I just drained the water, gathered the broccoli into one side of the pan so that I could saute the garlic in olive oil for a few minutes. After that, I mixed the broccoli with the butter. I also seasoned it with a bit of salt.

My version:

Steamed Broccoli and Roasted Chicken

Notice the broccoli’s color? It’s still dark green! This is the only time I did not overcook it. Now I know the trick hehe. This was one of my packed lunch and I paired it with roasted chicken.

What’s Cooking: Roasted Vegetables

Roasted Vegetables

Notes:

  • Recipe from here.
  • You can technically roast any vegetable but you need to group together those that are cooked almost at the same time to avoid over-cooking.
  • I made the mistake of scrimping on olive oil for the first batch, hence resulting to a semi dry roasted vegetables. I put more oil on the second batch and they turned out better. Eh kasi mahal ang olive oil kaya tinitipid-tipid ko pa nung una hahaha!
  • I roasted sweet potatoes, carrots and squash together. I roasted the bell pepper separately. I overcooked it. Must shorten roasting time.
  • I did not have fresh herbs as required by the recipe so I replaced them with dried ones. It’s still flavorful. I’ll try the fresh ones next time if available.

My version:

RoastedVegetables1

RoastedVegetables2

Despite the hiccups in cooking, I enjoyed eating these. It’s filling. I usually just have this for lunch and most of the time, I only get hungry after 4-5 hours.

What are you cooking?
