Good Morning! I’m so happy it’s already Thursday! WOO.
I bet you’re wondering what i’ve been up to? Well since you asked… 😉
I made a delicious zucchini bread from a Cookling Light cookbook that Britt gave me when I visited. It’s got some amazing looking recipes that I can’t wait to dig into. I had a zucchini laying in the fridge and it’s destiny was meant for bread. It’s a good recipe with some great flavor and I have been eating it for breakfast warmed up with some WF 365 smooth almond butter ( which I am in love with, and it’s only $4.99). It actually keeps me surprisingly full too and gets me through the morning.
The other day for lunch I combined a few ingredients that I found, and came up with a pretty tasty combo. I pan fried some tofu in some olive oil, placed them on a bed of shredded carrots and topped them off with some bbq sauce. Added a Japanese sweet potato on the side and it was delish. The perfect quick lunch that had lots of flavor. I love bbq and tofu together, it’s a combo that does no wrong.
My grandma flew into town yesterday from Florida. She is going to be staying at my parent’s house for about a month long vacation. I drove down after work and my mom had a chinese dinner ready for us to dig into. These noodles are amazing. They are so doughy. I swear I could eat them all by themselves with nothing added.
My mom had told my Aunt before that I had been wanting to get an Apron. Once she found out that I didn’t have a William’s Sonoma apron she decided to get me one! She sent with my grandma a beautiful yellow apron and some pretty striped yellow dishtowels 🙂 They match the yellow fiesta ware she gave me too! I’m in love. I feel so official having an apron now haha.
My grandma brought me a chinese rolling pin also. I’ll have to show you guys a pic of that. It’s thin and is perfect for rolling out dumpling wrappers. Tomorrow night… it’s dumpling night! yessssssssssss. it’s everyone in my family’s favorite. They’re nothing like you would get in a restaurant, they’re 100 million times better. I’ll be dreaming of them tonight 😉
