Am I Allergic to Kiwi!?

Low Carb Breakfast
I felt sick in stomach this morning as well as yesterday, which reminds me of the feeling when I eat pineapple. Started wondering I might be allergic to Kiwi. I looked up internet and found that it’s most likely since pineapple and kiwi are very similar. Uh-oh!

Lunch: Shrimp Spaghetti Butter Lemon Sauce

Dinner: Bulgogi with a lot of vegetable

Dessert: Banana Chocolate Oreo Ice Cream

We didn’t have enough lamb, so had bulgogi too.

Strong banana flavor

Jingisukan & California Wine

During the moving, we found ‘Hot Plate,’ electric grilled pan in the cabinet, which we haven’t used for a long time. So we decided to have Yakiniku at home.

I was thinking Korean BBQ first but came up with Jingisukan, Lamb BBQ that is a popular dish in Hokkaido, Japan.

I made dipping sauce with graded onion, soy sauce, honey and garlic.

Only frozen sliced lamb available at H Mart, Korean Market.

He claims that this is not what his mom made…I know his family doesn’t like vegetables but we need them 😛

Opened a bottle, Counter Cut Heirloom Red, California. It’s very smooth and fruity. Goes perfect with Jingisukan.

This is one of the Firstleaf selection. Can’t wait to try other bottles.

Homemade Dessert: Kiwi Yogurt
Because I whipped heavy cream too much, the final product was not as pretty as I wanted.


Brunch: French Toast + Coffee

Late Lunch: Leftover Mexican

Takeout Dinner from Tender Greens: Nicoise Salad $13

Fried Chicken Plate $12.50
Smallest chicken I’ve ever seen and they forgot a piece of garlic bread for this. Plus, the price went up. Triple damage 😦
