Week Night Big Meal

Normally, I don't cook on week nights. It's normally late when I get home from work. In addition I don't think it's healthy to have a big high carb meal for dinner. Most of all, it's just too much work.

I did not know what came over me last Wednesday, I just got it on and cooked this one pot rice dish. Couldn't come up with a name yet. Everything diced: onion, garlics, shitake mushrooms, Chinese sausage, dried scallops, dried oyster and bell pepper. Sauteed them in that order with oyster sauce and soy sauce and pepper. Rice added in for a quick toss before transferring the mix into the rice cooker. Water added accordingly for cooking the rice. When it came to a boil, a handful each of goji berries and corn were mixed in and cooked until rice was done.

That night I chow down 2 mountainous plate of the rice. It was around 9 at night when I finally started eating.

I woke up still feeling full the next morning.

World Peace

On Jul 27, 1953, the cease fire was signed ending the arm conflict in the Korean Peninsular. Today, it is the 57th Korean War Armistice anniversary.

South Korea is kicking off a military exercise with the United States of America in the Sea of Japan.

North Korea countered with a threat of "physical response", possibly to deploy its nuclear weapons in a "retaliatory sacred war".

Yay, world peace!
