What's Been Cooking In My Kitch - Part 2
I must admit when you're not in school anymore and you're not working, but you are actively and painfully looking for a career opportunity - you definitely have a lot of time on your hands. I seem to have had a lot of time this summer to create delicious masterpieces as I'd like to unveil them to you:
I absolutely love fruits. This summer while I was at my internship, I would always prepare a fruit salad to bring so it helps me get through my day and add a little sweetness. I always loved that it comes out refreshing, bright, and warm.
For Father's Day, we went to Will's sister's home and everyone made a dish or two. I always like it when we're able to bring our own food to share. It's such a delight! I've also been on a Vietnamese summer roll binge as I've been making quite a lot of these this year for different parties. This was also my first time making smoked salmon crackers and everyone seemed to like it.
One evening I volunteered to make dinner for Will and his partners. I made Vietnamese summer rolls, but this time with some shrimp and some Vietnamese pork. I actually wasn't a fan of the Vietnamese pork. The salmon toast was amazing because instead of using crackers, I used garlic bread and toasted it for a little crunch.
While my parents were away in San Francisco last month, I spent time at home and I made an avocado toast with smoked salmon and fried egg. The egg was a little overdone, but overall I really liked my toast and the colors. It was super filling and delicious!
I had smoked salmon left over so I lightly cooked it with some linguine and asparagus with light cream sauce. It was amazing! It looked great, smelled great, and best of all tasted great. I was very happy with the outcome.
