It’s Monday and I’m reading Hidden Figures


It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date

At first I was going to say nothing much happened last weekend. But I remembered – hey we went to Din Tai Fung! And I wrote about it too. Other than that though, the husband had to do some work at home. We hung out around our town. That’s about it. He also has to work today (MLK Jr Day) but the kids are off school. 










Catching up with the three nuts of The Grand Tour!

We just had The Habit for lunch – I had the Portobello mushroom burger and we shared sweet potato fries and tempura green beans, which I just cannot stop eating!!


Green tea


Chicken drumsticks and roasted cauliflower, maybe with some couscous

I also picked up some more hamachi kama (yellowtail cheek). It’s easy to roast in the oven and just needs a good seasoning of salt, and before eating, a squeeze of lemon. We eat it with rice and vegetables. And the kids love it.

Also something else I picked up from the Asian supermarket was a premix for soon tofu, the Korean tofu soup. Also bought a variety of mushrooms to go along with it. Hopefully it tastes good!

This recipe for pork floss biscuits made my mouth water (Bake for Happy Kids). I even picked up some pork floss from the supermarket to try making it soon. The Lunar New Year is coming up soon and it’s tradition to have some sweets and cookies around – usually for guests who visit. Although we won’t have guests visiting (no family here), I’m still gonna bake something!

2016 releases I didn’t get to (but plan to)

Weekend eating: Din Tai Fung


  1. Me too! Isn’t it brilliant!? I’m even trying to read slowly because I still have to wait a few weeks to see the movie 😭 Also your tea sounds amazing and now I’m craving Portobello mushroom burgers!


  2. Sounds like a pretty nice weekend overall! I just picked up that volume of Unbeatable Squirrel Girl from the library on the weekend, but now have to wait for the first volume to arrive (shouldn’t be long): eeeeek.
