I am sure we have all watched cliched, unoriginal, uncreative movies with fully predictable plots...
My blog is dangerously becoming predictable.
- I used to hate X, but now I love
- I used to love X, but now can't stand it
- I failed X, it looked like shit, but still tasted good
- I followed X's recipe, but I screwed it up
- I've screwed up then, I succeeded this time
- Something's on sale, bought it, cooked it, ate it, liked it
- Relate something entirely irrelevant...to food
yada yada yada, blablabla.
Sounds familiar? Uh huh! My cliched, expected, predictable formulas, out in the open.
Does it mean that I'm gonna try doing something entirely different? Innovative? Amazingly creative?
You wish. I wish.
Let's talk salad.
This time, I want a salad, but not in the mood for raw veggie, or anything with caesar dressing, parmesan and (gasp!) bacon. I must be sick.
Let's do some cooked vegetables and store bought dressing.
Wash and chop your veggie of choice.
Dip veggie of choice into boiling water.
I chose Chinese cabbage, it survives cooking well.
The Chinese cabbage was a little lonely, I added fresh shitake.
I dropped the fresh shitake into the water for literally just a couple of seconds before I drop everything into a strainer.
Pour cold water over vegetables to stop them from cooking further,
...and drain as much water as possible.
I've bought this Japanese creamy sesame dressing a while ago from City Super.
Freaking love it.
