Hot dog it's the 4th of July

^-^ Wonderful photo from jmtimages *~chu~*

*-* Liv's new Ark flash design is so click! >>>

This heatwave has been rather torturous on produce.. I've been craving fruit (which is odd for me) but so far everything has tasted more or less like plastic - (except some Michigan cherries that were really good..) So what to cook with when all your produce looks rather wilted? Ah ..firecracker tofu.

Heat oil in wok with garlic & ginger - add dried red chili peppers, chili paste - ..then after a minute add a lb of cubed tofu with 1/3 cup water/veg broth, 2 tbs shoyu (soy sauce), 2 tsp sesame oil After a minute add 1 tsp cornstarch dissolved in 1 tsp cold water..

I also made beef 'seitan' with broccoli - (Seitan is also called gluten , it's made from the protein part of wheat & is popular in vegetarian Buddhist cooking. Seitan can look like this: I make my Seitan in a pressure cooker & it's very easy.. anyone wants a recipe I'll post it.)
Best of all - Leigh really liked it and had the leftovers for lunch today ^-^

^-^ Hyde is writing the themesong for the Japanese version of "Stealth" (Out in USA July, Oct in Japan) (The image on that Sony Stealth page freaks me in a Fruedian inkblot kinda way - but I digress) 「COUNTDOWN」

Wishes of Wedded bliss to deepspacestyle
^-^ Congrats to ruiroentgen on his graduation~
