Mixed Plate Friday

How’s these loaded tots I made? I think I made this back during the super bowl weekend even though none of us watch the super bowl and this was really just an excuse to make junk food. I think I just baked the tater tots as instructed on the package and then add the toppings and threw it back in the oven for maybe 5 minutes to melt the cheese.

Top tray is thinly sliced beef cooked in Halm’s Hawaiian Bar-B-Que Sauce topped with some some shredded cheese. Second tray is topped with pulled pork I got from Sam’s Club, nacho cheese sauce and sliced fresh jalapenos. The first tray was the heavy favorite, can we be any more Asian? I guess kids aren’t huge fans of pulled pork, was eaten but slowly. Sigh…

Got these noodles at H-Mart a while back. Yes, I saw a video about it on TikTok and got super curious. I love a sauced noodle and these were wonderful. A bit pricey (think I paid $14) but so good. Love the texture of the noodles and the sauce. It is spicy (hello sichuan pepper) but I like the spice. I think since it is popular, H-Mart hiked the price up to almost $17. No thanks, I can wait for the price to go down again. This brand has other flavors too which taste good too so give it a try!

Just a funny follow-up post to my Gulick visits. Upon V’s recommendation, I just made these damn rolls myself. No need pay like almost $3 for HALF A ROLL. ANNND I gave myself two takuan sticks instead of one. Oh and added furikake. It was a very enjoyable week of lunches. I think this is one of the few dishes I can eat a lot of and never tire of. Weird right?

    i just went to buy more takuan to make the tuna sushi. Yup, I add furikake too.
    Plus, Kat makes a tartar sauce with rakkyo (pickled scallions) and either takuan or shibazuke (I think that is the pink tsukemono) so planning to make some for a shrimp tempura burger this weekend.

        Oooh thanks so much Aunty for the offer! I will have to decline for this time…too tempting! I’ve been trying to cook healthier recipes and man having that Lup cheong sounds sooo good but I am going to hold back this time…! Thank you for you thinking of me!

    $17 for a bag of noodles? Too pricey for me even if ono because then I still have to cook it.

    btw, the San Francisco lup cheong has arrived! My son packed them in half packs – shrink wrapped so they last. Would love for you to try them since you cook a lot. No need to steam them first – I just fry them up or put it on top of rice as it starts to bubble in the rice cooker.
