I can’t believe it’s Thursday tomorrow already.. Angel’s last day at day care, the boss returns from California (but I still don’t see him which is good and bad at the same time..), it means I’m closer to my long weekend now (4th of July is Tuesday!), and I probably have a short day on Friday and I’m keeping my fingers crossed the boss sends me home earlier than usual. (2PM would be good!)
I just finished cooking Angel’s viand for tomorrow, Alan is pecking at his laptop e-mailing his boss. I’m blogging. (Can’t do it at work anymore because all blog-related sites have been blocked!)
We had Tempura tonight, by the way, complete with panko (Japanese breadcrumbs) — thanks for noting the mispelling, Dheena.. It would’ve been great to use my Camaron Rebosado recipe for the batter, but I can’t find the cookbook where I have it. I should’ve remembered it in my personal website but I had a spark of genius and decided to use some buttermilk pancake mix instead. (It’s one of those supposedly gourmet mixes which didn’t quite meet my standards.. ) However, instead of adding a whole egg, I only added the egg whites which was what my rebosado recipe required. Then I dipped the shrimp in panko and fried it. Voila! Shrimp Tempura..
Alan and I shied away from the Thai Chili sauce that we resort to when I don’t have the energy to actually make the dipping sauce (complete with mirin, etc.) — but tonight, I just had it with mayo and ketchup which tasted great. Yummy!
