Asian BBQ Chicken Skewers

Topic: Recipe
Cuisine: Chinese

Quick. Easy.

Chicken Thighs cut into strips
Skewers
Chinese BBQ (Sa Ca) Sauce


Hoisin Sauce



Marinate Chicken thighs in a 2:1 ratio of the Hoisin Sauce and Sa Ca sauce. There's no need for pre-mixing. Just eyeball some spoonfuls of Hoisin Sauce to the degree where you think all the chicken thighs would be just covered, then spoon in half the amount of sa ca sauce.

Let marinate for at least 2 hours.

Skewer and grill.

I didn't really have a good picture of the chicken skewers individually but they're the ones... in the middle right.

The prettiest jap movie you'll ever see

Yeah Kevin already posted all the things you need to know about FF7: Advent Children.

PRETTIEST CG MOVIE EVER. EVER.

But yeah Miss Hanna has a point... the fight scenes don't have that much OOMF. Doesn't really feel as if the blows being landed are doing much... cuz obviously everyone's stats have maxed out.

Alright I'll shut up now.

San Francisco and the Sis

Went to visit Carol (the sister) at San Francisco over the weekend and it was a quality weekend. She lives in the Marina(?) *map with arrow pointed at spot* area in San Fran and we biked across the Golden Gate to Sausalito *map* and had ice cream. *pic of blueberry cheesecake ice cream*

Example of me being me: I've been to Sausalito before and all I wanted to do was to have the exact same ice cream at the exact same ice cream place there. Didn't have to do ANYTHING else. And we didn't. We continued on to Tiburon *map*, bummed at a cafe *pic*, and road the ferry back to one of the piers.

*map of route taken*

Ate some decent food.

Met up with Manisha (*think awesome ass windows from pic post*) and had brunch...QUALITY SCONES... took her to Chinatown into butcher shops... (sorry, Manisha) and later cooked for Sis's friends. The friends were cool people.

But yeah got to spend time with the sis whom I don't see very much anymore so it was a pretty awesome time. Though I'm still freaking tired and my week is chock full of stuff... but alas.

Oh yeah kept forgetting to take pictures and I'm really too lazy to grab maps but you can picture it all in your minds.

Damned sequels

I forget if I bitched about sequels lately but I'll bitch again. The Transporter was a pretty sweet movie. The eurotechnoesque hong kong movie with white people was amusing and violent. Obviously someone felt that a sequel was fitting but someone went up and said...

HEY. YUEN BIAO INFLUENCED THIS MOVIE A LOT SO LET'S MAKE THIS EVEN MORE LIKE A HONG KONG MOVIE! LET'S TURN THE COOL FRENCH DETECTIVE DUDE INTO A BUMBLING LOSER GUY REMINISCENT OF JACKIE CHAN'S UNCO!

Oh and they were obviously running out of budget towards the end of the movie with the shitty ass plane crash.

There was the everpresent lame ass melodramatic music.

Gah it was bad. Just plain bad. Not even in the so bad it's great sense. GRARG.

Mussels / Clams / Steamers Appetizer

Topic: Recipe
Cuisine: Continental

Kevin asked and I responded.

1 batch of your mollusks (about a dozen)
1/4 cup white cooking wine
2 cloves chopped garlic
1 tablespoon olive oil.... or butter.

french bread for dipping

clean the mollusks under cold water with old toothbrush / scour thinger

heat a large pan to medium high heat... big enough so that the mussels don't stack... if you don't have one that big just use the widest thing you have that'll hold them all.

saute garlic in the oil a bit then put in the mollusks. pour in wine. cover.

these cook pretty fast so keep an eye on them for when they open. if they're stacked a bit stir them around so that the unopened ones on the bottom can open.

filter the juice if you think it's needed (if there's sand). Take 4 roasted garlic cloves and sautee with the juice. You can thicken this up a bit with some cornstarch or flour.
