Fried Chicken Liver in Butter and Honey + Tuna Adobo with Veggies

After a looong break, I'm back!

Should you wish to find out what have I been doing lately, just head over to SEXYNOMAD, my main personal blog.

Anyway, vacation is over, I'm back to doing 2-3 jobs at a time, which I love by the way, but I still want to make sure that I can find a window in my busy schedule to practice cooking (and food photography too!). For this week, I was able to cook twice --- first was yesterday when I just prepared an old potato dish I already blogged about. Then the second one was earlier this evening. I was craving for some Tuna Adobo and Chicken Liver and I thank the universe that I still have the ingredients inside my fridge. I need to do some groceries soon though so I can start experimenting with other recipes. Hopefully, I can prepare something from one of my cook books rather than just going by my gut feel just like what I said in my personal projects site, TheJenAdamsProject. ^_^

Anyway, here's what I cooked a while ago. Please take note that when I did this, I didn't measure my ingredients. I just went with my gut feel. Hihihi.

Fried Chicken Liver in Butter and Honey

I dried my chicken liver parts a bit using tissue paper. Then I dashed them with pepper and salt to taste. I set them aside for a moment.

I put my old sauce pan on the stove and turned up the heat. I placed a thin slice of butter and some honey on the pan. As they were melting, I put my chicken liver. I fried them until they were a bit burnt by the simmering butter and honey. I like it that way.

Once it was fried the way I liked it, I set it aside.

Tuna Adobo with Veggies

Next, I prepared my favorite veggie mix by slicing them: Chinese pechay, onions, bell pepper, garlic, cucumber and tomatoes. I put them in a bowl then garnished them with salt, black pepper, rosemary, thyme and basil.

I placed my casserole on the stove, turned up the heat, and poured some canola oil. After a minute, I put my veggies on the pot and sauteed them. I closed the pot then opened a can of tuna adobo from the pantry. I poured the can's contents into my veggies, added a bit of soy sauce and vinegar and stirred them all together. I closed the pot for a few minutes to let them simmer. Then I turned off the stove. My dishes were served hot together with a cup of rice and a small bowl of soy sauce with calamansi. ^_^

They were delicious! I still have some left which I will eat later on before I start my next shift at work.

For desserts, I opened one of the boxes of chocolates I bought in Vietnam. Oh so yummy!

Bon appetit!
