Green License Plate

Link

Ontarians have voted for a new vehicle licence plate that will encourage consumers to switch to environmentally-friendly cars and trucks.

Drivers sporting these plates on a plug-in hybrid or battery electric vehicle will be able to:
Use Ontario’s High-Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes until 2015, even if there is just one person in the vehicle.
Access recharging facilities at GO Transit and other provincially operated parking lots.
Use designated parking spots at the University of Toronto and private companies such as Walmart Canada.

Cauliflower is Not White

Tattfoo Tan

I was very surprise and delighted when I saw that they are in various colors.

To maintain the colors of the cauliflower, I decided to lightly cook it. Simply pour a cup of water into a pan or wok that have a lid.
Then place the cauliflower and cover the lid back. Steam for about 5 mins or until tender. Take it off the pan to rest. Now sautéed garlic, ginger and leek or spring onions until fragrance. Next step is to include the tofu into the pan and then add back the cauliflower. Add salt and pepper to taste. You can choose to dress it up with salad dressing or with asian dumpling sauce.
