Zojirushi pressure IH rice cooker NW-JEC launch event

I was invited to Zojirushi pressure IH rice cooker NW-JEC launch event. I never thought I would take a new rice cooker home and other goodies, and I've been thinking I want a new rice cooker. I have been using Tiger rice cooker for probably 20 years. It never broke and still works fine, but I think it's time to change to the new one.

I love how this rice cooker has many menu options. Menu settings include white (regular, soft, softer, firm, and firmer), umami, mixed, sushi, Jasmine, porridge, congee, brown, GABA brown, steel-cut oatmeal, quick white, and quick Jasmine.

OMG! Pretzels snacks

Have you ever tried OMG! Pretzels?
It's sweet and savory gourmet sourdough pretzels nuggets created by a mother/daughter team. They have 8 different flavors. I tried sweet & salty, and lemon pepper flavors. Lemon pepper has strong pepper flavors. I personally like sweet & salty flavor more than lemon pepper. It's very addictive. 

Also available on Amazon

Cooking with Harvest of the sea seafood medley

Bring a seafood meal restaurant style to your dinner table that is ready-to-cook in 5 minutes. 
It contains Asian shrimp, Indian-wild-caught calamari, Argentine scallops, and Canadian Prince Edward Island blue mussels. It’s keto, paleo and Mediterranean diet-friendly. 

I thought about making seafood pasta, but I was in the mood for Asian food so I made Korean-style tofu and seafood soup. I didn't take photos but I also made seafood fried rice too. This seafood medley is really convenient, and I really love it. 

Seafood Medley is available at Costco in the Bay Area and San Diego, California along with Texas.

Congo Tropicals plantain chips and chocolate


I received Congo salted plantain chips and organic costa rica dark chocolate. 

Congo chips are all-natural, 0g trans fat, and gluten-free. I usually like to add banana chips to my fruits bowl but since it's salted, I like to eat this as it is. Good snack. I also enjoyed chocolate. Chocolate is known fact that chocolate is loaded with nutrients. Made in Costa Rica from the finest cacao beans. It's very smooth and delicious. I enjoy eating one piece either in the morning or at late night when I get hungry. My stomach gets satisfied.
