Terrible photo that I quickly snapped before dishing out. But it’s a peach and plum cobbler. White peaches and yellow peaches and one sad plum that no one wanted to eat as the rest weren’t sweet! The recipe is from Orangette and originally for a plum cobbler. I added the rolled oats onto of the cobbler topping as I always like oats in crumble/cobbler! So good.
We always have a nice time at the Children’s Museum in San Jose. And as an extra benefit, Sunday mornings from 11-12 are its members-only hour. The kids got to take their time at the exhibits, including the Tet (Vietnamese new year) exhibit which had a lion dance costume, musical instruments and even a little kitchen to play in.
It’s Sunday evening and as I’m that kind of last-minute blogger, I’m just pushing this out right now. Yeah.

Girls Season 1.
Mad Men Season 7. I’m kind of trying to watch this as sloooowwly as possible.
Well I’m in bed at the moment but we er had Popeyes for dinner. Woohoo! Fried chicken. Mashed potatoes. Coleslaw. And then peach cobbler to follow. So American a dinner. (I think? Is cobbler an American thing? I know crumbles are more British. Right? I can’t say for sure. I’m from Singapore.)
Water. We were out the whole day. Farmers market in the morning, children’s museum after, off to take a look at furniture at West Elm after that. Then grabbing dinner to eat at home. When I’m out the whole day I don’t drink as much as I usually do at home. And when I don’t drink enough water I get a headache.
Mee goreng (here’s a recipe). It’s a fried egg noodle dish usually spicy, with bean sprouts, chicken, tofu. Just typing it makes me drool a little.
Also, shepherd’s pie. Hopefully the kids eat it this time. You would think that minced beef, mashed potatoes and peas would be a win with two littles. No. Not at all. I’m going to add in frozen corn this time. See if that helps.
I’m not a big fan of cheesecake but this cheesecake-topped brownie has me hungry (Food52)
