On Saturday we took the kids on their very first uphill hike at Garin Regional Park in Hayward. Luckily it was a nice cool morning and while a bit steep initially, we all made it to the top of one hill and got some nice views of the bay! And then back down again for a nice picnic.
Indian/Pakistani food for dinner! The kids ate the tandoori fish and naan and carrot sticks. The curries here are just way too spicy for them. Sadly the Saag Dal seems different these past couple of orders – the restaurant seems to be using a different dal and there’s a lot less spinach? It’s my favourite curry, I really hope it returns to its original recipe…

Made a pandan cake for a potluck dinner last night. Pandan is a green leafy plant used in Southeast Asian cooking. It’s very fragrant and makes for a lovely green cake!
We’ll be going to a friend’s house for a potluck dinner and I’ll be making this miso potato gratin that I found on Tasty Japan. Looks simple and so delicious. I love the idea of adding miso to a gratin. I love watching videos from Tasty Japan and Tastemade Japan as they have such different ideas sometimes.
