*Bittermelon in Scrambled Eggs*

image

It’s bittermelon in scrambled eggs.  I don’t really have a name for it.  My mom used to cook it for me.  Not exactly an omelet because there’s no cheese.  Bittermelon ain’t the type of vegetable that’s a favorite among anybody.  But I like it and make it  especially when I have “my monthly visitor” .. as some may say.  It helps with the cramps and the flow of things.
     You can boil or steam the bittermelon to reduce the bitterness a bit.  But for its full effectiveness, just fry it in a bit of olive oil then add the scrambled eggs. :0)

*Ikura a.k.a. salmon eggs a.k.a. gold of the ocean*

Upclose.. this is Ikura.. my favorite, and  my hubby brought some home just for me 🙂

Not just one bowl, but two!  In hawaii, it’s like gold!  Ikura nearly cost $30/lb.

They are usually used in sushi.  The sushi made up of nori, rice, ikura and ahi poke.  Nori is seaweed, ikura is salmon eggs, ahi poke is merely cut up raw tuna, and of course you know rice… mmm, yum! :0)

On the third of July, my phone had pictures of our time at the beach.  Isaac had a blast.  He loved the beach and splashing in the ocean.  I had those precious moments captured in my phone.  And my phone got toasted in the sun.  Ughhh!!  I was worried it would get wet so I left it on the beach chair in the shade.  But that shade didn’t last long because the sun moved and toasted my phone with my precious pictures of my baby.  Ughhh!!  OK. Just needed to vent about that.

So the picture above is my fourth of July spaghetti with garlic bread.  Saw some fireworks while I was on the balcony doing laundry.  I wanted to capture it but I was really upset about what happened to my phone so I didn’t take a picture of anything.

Now I have a new phone and that spaghetti with garlic bread is my first foodie on my new phone.  Hmm.  :\  Perhaps this is a good thing to start over and freshen my blog posts with what I snapshot from now on.  I guess I gotta look at the brighter side of things.  Hmm.  /:  May God bless America.  May God bless us everyone!!
