April 2, 2007 lunch and dinner

I was in the mood to cook and shoot, since my folks were out of town, made my job a lot easier hehe! Didn't have time to post though, as I was really busy throughout the week. I made marinated steak, water cress and coriander salad with asian dressing, topped with toasted pistachios for lunch; and for dinner, I invited my friends, MaeV and Sam over for a quick one. I started cooking only at 7.45 pm and because I was so hungry, managed to get it done real fast in 45 minutes! I cooked garlic, button mushrooms, Italian parsley and pine nuts angel hair pasta; and avocado, tomato, watercress salad topped with balsamic vinaigrette and toasted pistachios.

I'm still very busy now, preparing for my medical meeting interpreting in Shanghai and Taipei, so I'm just going to post the pictures now and hope to come up with the recipes later. The recipe for the marinated steak salad was inspired by a picture that I saw on someone else's blog, but modified it a little to suit my taste.

I made the marinated steak salad again yesterday (April 7, 2007) for lunch, using the leftover ingredients from Monday. The second attempt had chopped cherry tomatoes sprinkled on top too...
