This did not have a lot of flavor. I was expecting something with a little spice, but in fact it was bland, even with double the sambal oelek (and I don't eat things really spicy). I was also confused about the amount of ginger. ml are a liquid volume measurement. Also there are no indications of cooking temperature. Overall, this wasn't bad, but I won't make it again.

I live in beautiful San Diego where there's never nothin to do. We almost never have days where you can't get outdoors. For fun I love to read, cook, take road trips with my grandson, whom I raise. Take long walks along the beach, bays and lakes. My live in grandson is 12 and the light of my life. I've been teaching him to fish, or should I say I'm exposing him to lake fishing, the people we meet along the way are teaching him while I read and watch. He's dying to go ocean fishing, that one makes me a bit more nervous, but we'll start that soon, probably from piers to start. Nick's only one of my grandchildren though, I have a total of 13, three live in Kansas, the land of Oz. The last time I visited them, it was Christmas time and when I stepped off the plane, the cold air took my breath away and standing there waiting for me in a short-sleeved T-shirt, was my son-in-law. Needless, to say, I spent many days there staying indoors praying for the day I could get back to sunny California -- I never had to endure snow the whole time, thank God! Twenty degrees daily was way out of my comfort zone by a very large margin. There truly is no place like home. I have 8 other grandchildren that are fortunate enought to live in San Diego too. We spend weekends doing things together such as taking in the zoo, wild animal park, Sea World, Knotts Soak City water park (summer), museums, fishing, picknicking and just hanging out. They all love to help grandma cook in the kitchen. I have many cookbooks and can read them like I'd read a novel. My passions are my family, my two boston terriers, Tuffy and Oreo, and gardening, cooking and reading -- oh yeah, I'm totally addicted to Zaar. I don't really have many pet peeves, but a biggie is mean, obnoxious people and those who think they know it all, and liars, I can pick out a deceitful person it an instant. If you can't trust someone, then nothings worth salvaging in the relationship. I hate those who disrespect the environment (no I'm not a tree hugger) but I do hate to see people litter and fail to do simple things such as picking up after themselves in the outdoors such as parks and beaches, and how easy is it to recycle? It's really not too difficult to make an impact on the environment if everybody takes responsibility for their "trash."
