It’s Monday and I’m reading Swimming Lessons


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


Last week….

I baked some salmon (the most moist baked salmon you can ever make!)

Ate some pork belly bao

Read library books with the 4yo

Borrowed more books for Asian Lit Bingo

The kids painted pots and potted flowers at Orchard Supply Hardware

We had an early Mother’s Day lunch (my m-i-l flew back to Sunday morning). Mediterranean food with a view of the waterfront. Also it had pizza.

And after the airport on Sunday, a wander around the Barnes and Noble.









Gilmore Girls season 5



Just had tempura for lunch!


A decaf nespresso


To make things easier for myself, a baked pasta of some sort. Probably with broccoli and bacon. Or maybe this one pot bacon broccoli mac and cheese from Budget Bytes

Fried noodles



Making coconut rice (nasi lemak) in the rice cooker (The Food Canon)

Celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month with 12 new titles (BookDragon)

The Best We Could Do – Thi Bui



  1. I’ll be interested to hear how you like Swimming Lessons. I liked it, but not as much as Our Endless Numbered Days.


  2. Ahahahaha, Budget Bytes includes many MANY mac and cheese recipes, and I find them very difficult to exist. Have you made any of her macs and cheeses before? If you make the broccoli one, I will be interested to hear your results. I haven’t tried that yet!
