Chrysanthemum Drink
 These past few days, our weather is very hot and humid.
If you go outside from your house, you sure will be sweating
even it is just for 5 minutes.
This morning, I went to market to buy vegetables and meat to cook for dinner,
but alas, my husband told me not to cook because he wanted me
to accompany him to go down town to buy shirt and sport shoe.
Told him “What am I going to do with all these vegetables and meat?”.
His simple reply “Cook another day”.  I said ok but I still need to boil this
Chrysanthemum Drink since the weather is so hot…
need it to cool down our body.
Today is Labour Day and wishing everyone happy holiday.


 50g of Dried Chrysanthemum 
with a few pieces of Liquorice slices (Kam Choe in Cantonese).
100g of Sugar Cane.
5,000 ml of Water.
Wash the Dried Chrysanthemum and Liquorice slices thoroughly and
put into the pot with 5,000 ml of Water.
 Boil at high fire for 20 minutes.
Then, lower down the fire to medium and boil another 25 minutes.
 After total 45 minutes, turn off the fire.
(Note : Do not boil too long because the drink will be bitter)
 Strain the Chrysanthemum with a colander.
Discard the Chrysanthemum.
Leave the Chrysanthemum Drink to cool at one side.
This Chrysanthemum Drink is not sweet at all and if you
prefer it to be sweet, then by all means, put more sugar.
This drink is good for our body, easy to boil and lastly, cheap also.
Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
