蒸水蛋

九月 21, 2010

用新電飯煲蒸水蛋效果比微波爐好,因為微波爐蒸出來的水蛋表面比較乾(不過從照片中看不出來):

不過這代表剛買的蒸架可能無用武之地… (本來就是為了蒸水蛋才買的;不過因為太大,要用鑊才放得下。)

還有炒菜(長身的,好像叫小白菜)。買了一個多禮拜,再不用就會乾掉…

開邊綠豆糖水

九月 18, 2010


對上一次自己煲開邊綠豆糖水應該係幾年前喺倫敦既時候,所以都唔係煮得幾好:

  • 冰糖落得唔夠,結果最後要再加砂糖。
  • 蕃薯粉落得太多,好"杰"。

P.S. 材料: 開邊綠豆、冰糖、馬蹄粉(可以蕃薯粉代替)。外面糖水舗叫做綠豆爽,不過就多左西米(好似係)。

雜記

九月 18, 2010


攝於一蚊店: $2.99 一隻,$5 兩隻,$10 五隻,九成九係番梘。


(左) 正常收據 (中) 超市收據,買兩樣野就成尺幾長(40cm!),雖則話背面有廣告(右),都唔使整咁長㗎…


校巴終於駛入Berwyn Heights 喇!(初頭仲以為自己眼花添…) 行去校巴站既時間由十五分鐘變成五分鐘。


之前買既3-cup飯煲唔夠食兩餐(淨係可以放杯半米),結果去Target買多個6-cup(三杯米)飯煲。一個月内買兩個飯煲,都有點兒…


今日去買左張檯(二手,八蚊雞),間房睇落似樣好多。


之前就係用呢個箱當檯用(再之前就係將啲野放喺行李喼上面)。

上回講到去咗Staples試咗張凳,為免自己唔記得,所以仲影咗相:

然後跟住個名上網買。點知到攞貨嘅時候先發現原來係另外一張:

…… 睇嚟係有小朋友搞鬼將啲label亂咁擺……
唯有用住先,唔啱再退貨。(因為試坐嗰張凳係真皮,貴成四十蚊美金… 過千銀港紙一張凳似乎太過貴喇。)
———-

Dollar City. 類似香港既十蚊店,不過唔係每樣野都係一蚊。望落同雜貨舖差唔多。 (另外一間叫Dollar Tree既就真係全部一蚊…再加稅)

Target. 百貨公司一間。貨品被客人亂放一通,所以要用呢部機去check價錢…

飲茶

九月 11, 2010

第一次喺美國飲茶,間茶樓叫怡東。十一點未到已經有四五十人排隊等開門,真係唔嘢小。呢度飲茶同香港唔同嘅地方包括:

  1. 唔用碗同匙更,得茶杯、筷子同碟。
  2. 除咗杯茶,仲有杯水。
  3. 蒸籠用金屬做,唔係用竹。

味道方面,同香港差唔多,喺美國有茶飲,除咗感動之外都唔知可以講乜!

蝦腸

蛋撻同牛百葉

蘿蔔糕

糯米雞同山竹牛肉
美中不足:山竹牛肉冇落喼汁(個賣相都差咗啲啲)。

炸芋餅、(?)同蝦餃。圖右下方:放落菊花茶嘅白色冰糖。

排骨、餃子(?)同八爪魚

炸芋角(?)


白糖糕

燒賣

(?) = 唔清楚叫咩名…

P.S. 飲完茶去咗兩間超市買嘢(金山同美心),入咗開邊綠豆*同上海麪加榨菜,仲買咗個蒸嘢用嘅鐵架(可惜太大,要用個大pan先放得落)。
*用嚟整類似綠豆爽嘅糖水(my favorite!)。

去麥記

九月 11, 2010

禮拜五唔記得帶三文治,所以晏晝去咗食麥記。我鍾意食蘑菇,所以同之前幾次一樣叫咗個Angus third pounder with mushroom and swiss cheese餐,US$6.25,成五十蚊港紙,都幾貴。

驟眼睇仲以爲堂食要加税添(其實係佢將Eat in 同tax 寫埋響同一行)…  我當時仲以爲係呢個原因所以呢度快餐店總會有空位添。

一杯藍色小汽嘅汽水,叫做Mountain乜乜。

其後發現,有告示牌寫明唔畀打躉,最多畀坐30分鐘(對我嚟講啱啱夠…)。
P.S. 相對之下,晚餐去咗Subway,一個foot-long兩份分,一人兩個六毫半,化算得多…

Picnic in Black Hill Regional Park

九月 5, 2010

Last Saturday I had picnic with some Hong Kong people. The picnic was organized by HK student association (HKSA) of UMD. We went to Black Hill Regional Park, which is some 50 minutes drive from College Park.



Photo taken next to the visitor center.

Mushroom!

This is where we had picnic. There were so many Chinese/Hong Kong dishes that I just kept eating without taking pictures! This is a partial list of food I had had:
揚州炒飯
星洲炒米
滷水蛋
海底椰西米露
豆腐花 (There were many people interested in how to make this dessert and asked the folk who prepared this for the recipe! It’s real good and I had refilled twice!)
(I had also had some salad and fruits but they were not as important to me compare to those above 😛 )
(There were also some games like Bingo and 大電視 prepared by the exco (thanks!) and they were fun, but still I enjoyed the food more.)
After the food and the games I took some photos around the lake:




There’s also a boat tour. The scenery at the other side of the lake is great but due to the position of the sun at the evening, they appeared washed-out, as can be seen from the picture.

The visitor center. The sky is so blue with almost no clouds. This is probably due to a hurricane out there on the Atlantic ocean. Few days after the picnic the temperature soars to 105oF (40.5oC)!











Looks like the one you find in Windows, huh?

P.S. The card game “take 6″ is interesting, though.

P.P.S. Forgot to ask about how to obtain the ingredients for making Hong Kong style milk tea…

P.P.P.S. Yesterday the HKSA organized an “open sem rice" and I had the opportunity of having even more Chinese dishes:

西湖牛肉羹
椒鹽中蝦
生炒骨
貴妃雞
粟米班塊
琵琶豆腐
楊州炒飯
大蒜炒芥蘭
豆腐花 (oh this is not as good as the one last week though)
