tuna waldorf salad

here’s my version of tuna waldorf salad

drain canned white tuna chunks, core and chop two medium red apples in bite sizes, put in a bowl and toss with two tablespoons of lemon juice. set aside. in a separate bowl, combine about half a cup of mayonnaise and a tablespoon of mustard. add a teaspoon of honey, finely chopped onions and a dash of salt and pepper to taste. mix together well.

pour dressing into the tuna and apple mixture, toss gently to coat. cover and chill for an hour. serve with lettuce, sprinkle with roasted walnuts, dried raisins, and grated cheddar cheese.

tadaaah! rob’s tuna waldorf salad! try it! ūüėČ

button mushrooms and peaches

our catering crew has been gone for almost a week now which left us of no one to cook meals for our crew. the set-up became cook-your-own-thing where the store-room and the walk-in freezer for food items was open and you can take what you want to cook. being a pescetarian i had limited options but have been “creative” of my self-made dishes, lol! here is a sample of my dinner earlier:

button mushrooms with garlic and cashew nuts in olive oil

in a pan, heat olive oil in medium heat. sauté garlic until golden brown, set aside the garlic and keep oil in pan. add button mushrooms cut in quarters and stir-fry for about ten minutes. add back the garlic, put some peppercorns, rosemary and cashew nuts, salt to taste. simmer for five more minutes. serve with butter toast.

cinnamon soft baked peaches

preheat oven to 350 degrees. in a tin foil, arrange drained canned peaches, dot with butter, a teaspoon of honey for every pit, sprinkle with cinnamon powder and white sugar. fold tin foil on each side and crimp to secure. bake in oven for 30 to 45 minutes. serve with vanilla ice cream.

so that was chef rob’s pescetarian dish for the day. keep posted for more until the catering crew is found. hehe.

pescetarianism

pescetarianism is a dietary choice in which a person will not eat the flesh of any animals other than types of seafood.  other animal products like eggs and dairy may be a part of a pescetarian diet.  a person following this dietary choice is known as a pescetarian.

i stopped eating pork in highschool, my mom was getting annoyed at me for when she cooks anything with pork on it, i’d rather have boiled eggs than eat that thing she cooked. ¬†and after some time,¬†the family stopped eating pork.¬† two years ago i removed beef in my diet, and a year after then i also stopped eating chicken after i developed skin allergy because of it.

some consider pescetarians as semi-vegetarians.  reasons behind the practice differs, from religious beliefs, to health issues, to lifestyle factors.

semi-vegetarianism can be a choice, i chose this kind of lifestyle without anyone telling me to practice it.¬† i have never even known before that there is a word that defines it.¬† well, it’s just a matter of preference.
