They do exist...

So for the last weekend or two, I've been searching high and low for my tuna strainer. I seriously couldn't believe Home Outfitters didn't have it. I swear I saw it at Bed Bath and Beyond. I knew for sure I saw it at Le Gnome in West Edmonton Mall. Since I had a 50% coupon at Michael's, I decided to go to the Michael's by West Ed and go get my tuna strainer. Yay. It was there. I no longer have to worry about my hands when I drain my tuna.

The one I have is green

I tried to make my steamed egg tonight again, but I forgot to turn down the heat. It ended up all bubbly. Also this time it's not sweet enough. ARGH. Need to tweak the recipe some more! Ok, off to watch TVB's new series: 官心計. It is really good. I can't wait for more episodes to come out!

So last night, I had to rush to get this layout done for a contest. Hopefully I can win a Cricut cartridge. Haha. Usually when I scrap, I try to put things back in place while I work, but not this time. Cut and leave it on the floor. Glue and leave it on the counter. After 3-4 hours, this was my work area. Surprisingly, not too bad. I had worse, but maybe that's because my room was smaller in Calgary. And yes, I found my beloved Canon!

A Little Too Sweet

Usually during my time here in Edmonton, I don't usually eat eggs. So I am usually 'egg-deficient' for two weeks. However, today I decided to make some eggs: one hard boiled egg in my salad and one steamed egg (燉蛋) for dessert. Yes, it's my first 燉蛋. However, I don't have any white milk (I'm a chocolate milk person), so the only thing I had was condensed milk. I used 1/2 cup of condensed milk and 1/2 cup of water. I only poured 3/4 of it onto my one beaten egg. However, it came out WAY too sweet and not enough egg taste. If it's in a tart shell, it actually would taste like an egg tart. I think I should always have some back up white milk around...

Stir Fried Chicken on Rotini

Tonight's dinner. Simple and straightforward. I made it with some of this Club House stir fry sauce and my favorite black bean sauce. Yum yum yum. The picture didn't turn out too bad. Took it with my phone camera. I can't find my Canon. Camera, where are you?!
