This is so refreshing on a hot summer day.  It's been mad hot this whole summer (100 degree and up).  I can't wait until Fall comes along.  

It would have been better if I made smoothies with it...mmmmm....

Don't you just love corn! Especially Mexican Corns!  What do I mean by Mexican Corn?  Have you gone to the flea market where they sell Mexican Corn for $1.00?  They wold put the Corn on the Cobb on a stick, add butter, mayonnaise, parmesan cheese, and chili on it  There are some neighborhood that a guy ride on his bike selling corn, pork skins, and snow cones.  Corn are getting expensive and making them at home is cheaper and you get more then 1.  If you haven't try one yet, your missing out.

This is one of the dish that my mom made when I was a child and to this day she still makes it.  It is pretty simple dish and easy to make.  Boil pork with greens, that's all to it.  I just had some yesterday. :)

Pier 39

A friend and I went to Pier 39 in San Francisco, CA.  This was my first time ever being there.  All I can say is "Wow."  Too bad it was only for 1 day.  I can see Alcatraz from there.  

The temperature that day was 61 degree.  It was a nice and breezy day.  There was a lot of stores and restaurants, but boy it's pretty pricey.  

There are also other attractions, but too many to name, so I'm not going to name them.

We didn't know where to eat because there was so many restaurant to chose from.  We decided to go Fog Harbor.  I was expecting a long wait, since there a was a lot of people all around Pier 39.  Turn out we were seated right away.  

The food was delicious.  I figured, hey I'm in the bay area, let's order lobster and wine.  We couldn't believe it when we got the check.  It was pricey like I said earlier, but it was ok, it was my first time and I enjoyed it while it last.

Sausage Stir-Fry With Onions

1 pack of sausage
1 onion
cilantro and green onion
fresh garlic or fried garlic
oyster sauce

Cut the sausage in diagonal.
Dice onion to thin slice

Pour oil and garlic into sauce pan.  Once oil is hot, pour sausage into sauce pan and stir.  Stir occasionally, make sure the sausage doesn’t stick to the pan.  If it starts to stick, add some water. Once sausage is cook, drain excess oil and put the sausage back into the pan and add more water for flavor and juice.  Pour onion into pan and stir and then add oyster sauce and stir occasionally.  Once onion is cook, turn off heat and add cilantro and green onion.

Leftovers, don't you loved them.  Having chicken or turkey leftovers are great to make sandwiches, salads, or wrap it in a tortilla and make it into a taco.  There are so many ways to make left overs into a new dish. 

Making Eggrolls

Everyone loves egg rolls I know I do.  I remember growing up seeing my mother making egg rolls for my family and special occasions.  Prep and cooking takes a while, but the hard work pays off after biting into one.  My mother taught me how to make egg roll, but I added other sauce into my own recipe to make it more delicious.  Here is my own recipe and it is different from the restaurants.  Every egg roll recipe has it’s own unique fillings.   

1 lb. of your choice of meat (chicken, pork, beef, shrimp)
I prefer pork (taste better)
1 cup of carrots-shredded                                                     
2 eggs
1 bag of thin vermicelli noodle
1 cup of cilantro-chopped
½ cup green onion-chopped
Salt n pepper to your tasting
2 spoon full of Oyster Sauce
2 spoon full of Hoisin Sauce
Oil for cooking
1 egg yolk to seal egg roll
1 pack of egg roll wrapper (you can get it the Asian store in the freezer section)

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.  Peel the egg roll wrapper individual and put it aside.  Put a spoon full of the filling on an egg roll wrapper and roll it into an egg roll and use the egg yolk to seal it.

Pour the oil into the frying pan, wait until oil is hot and put the egg rolls into the pan.
Flip/turn the egg rolls in 2-3 minute until it is golden brown.  Once the egg rolls are golden brown, they are done.
