Guess he decided that he only had time for “Half-a-tan”. He get’s 5 FV tickets, and an all expense paid trip to Hollywood tan to finish tanning the bottom half of his body.

Recipe of the day: Filipino Lumpia

 

Image

FILIPINO LUMPIA:

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 pound ground pork

2 cloves garlic, crushed

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup minced carrots

1/2 cup chopped green onions

1/2 cup thinly sliced green cabbage

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon soy sauce

30 lumpia wrappers

2 cups vegetable oil for frying

Place a wok or large skillet over high heat, and pour in 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Cook pork, stirring frequently, until no pink is showing. Remove pork from pan and set aside. Drain grease from pan, leaving a thin coating. Cook garlic and onion in the same pan for 2 minutes. Stir in the cooked pork, carrots, green onions, and cabbage. Season with pepper, salt, garlic powder, and soy sauce. Remove from heat, and set aside until cool enough to handle.

Place three heaping tablespoons of the filling diagonally near one corner of each wrapper, leaving a 1 1/2 inch space at both ends. Fold the side along the length of the filling over the filling, tuck in both ends, and roll neatly. Keep the roll tight as you assemble. Moisten the other side of the wrapper with water to seal the edge. Cover the rolls with plastic wrap to retain moisture.

Heat a heavy skillet over medium heat, add oil to 1/2 inch depth, and heat for 5 minutes. Slide 3 or 4 lumpia into the oil. Fry the rolls for 1 to 2 minutes, until all sides are golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately.

 

Are “Wedding Bells” in future plans for Kim Kardashian???

ImageIn recent reports, Kim Kardashian has been seen around with mega rapper Kanye West. They’ve confirmed that they are indeed a couple, and per Kim, “I can’t even think about being with anyone else than the man I’m with”.

Although Kim hasn’t had the best track record when it comes to men in the past, she says, “It’s so nice to have a best friend in this game who understands everything you’re going through (referring to Kanye). It’s good to be aware that he doesn’t want anything from me too, because he understands the business (mentioning her 72 day marriage to Kris Humphries)”.

The next time around, Kim plans to have a more intimate (non televised) ceremony on an island with just her close friends & family.

They have only been dating since the Spring of 2012. Is it a little too soon to be thinking of marriage and a baby? Who knows, maybe they’ll be the next Jay Z & Beyonce. How about baby  KimYe West to play with Blue Ivy Carter!!!  Kanye, what are your thoughts?

Recipe of the Day: Chicken Marsala

 

Image

1/4 cup all-purpose flour for coating

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – pounded 1/4 inch thick

4 tablespoons butter

4 tablespoons olive oil

1 cup sliced mushrooms

1/2 cup Marsala wine

1/4 cup cooking sherry

Directions

In a shallow dish or bowl, mix together the flour, salt, pepper and oregano. Coat chicken pieces in flour mixture.

In a large skillet, melt butter in oil over medium heat. Place chicken in the pan, and lightly brown. Turn over chicken pieces, and add mushrooms. Pour in wine and sherry. Cover skillet; simmer chicken 10 minutes, turning once, until no longer pink and juices run clear.

**Can be served with a side of Rice, mashed potatoes & gravy, or pasta

 

DEEP FRIED TILAPIA

 

Image

DEEP FRIED TILAPIA:

4 tilapia fillets

1 quart cooking oil (or Crisco)

1 1/2 cups seasoned flour or

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour mixed with 1 TBSP each: Garlic powder, black pepper, paprika, and ½ TBSP of salt

1. Heat the oil in a 3- or 4-quart pan to at least 375-degrees F. (just a couple of drops of water flipped off your hand will really crackle when the oil has reached this heat level).

2. Roll the Tilapia in the flour, shake off excess flour, and let the fillets sit on a rack or, on wax paper, for 5-10 minutes.

3. Roll the fillets in the flour a second time, shake off excess flour, and deep fry, no more than 2 at a time. NOTE** (frying more than 2 fillets at once drives down the oil temperature which will make the fish and coating soggy). Turn once in the pan after a minute or so and remove when golden brown. They should be done in under 4 minutes, white and flakey inside at the thickest section of the filet. Do not overcook!!!!

4. Drain each filet on paper towels for a few seconds and serve. ENJOY 😉
