It’s Monday

 

 

 

Last week…

 

My mother-in-law arrived from Singapore bearing gifts!

I made Pai Bao, a soft condensed milk that originated from Hong Kong. It uses the tangzhong method, which I really love using as it makes extra soft bread.

 

We ate at Super Duper Burger. Still one of the best burgers in the area!

The farmers’ market has nectarines in!

Korean food for lunch at Jang Su Jang.

Currently…

 

Reading:

Edinburgh – Alexander Chee

I’m slowly making my way through this one. There are some books you breeze through and some books you struggle through. But then there are beauties like this one filled with such great writing that you want to just sip at it and savour it before it is all gone.

 

 

Watching:

How To Get Away With Murder season 5 – I have a love-hate relationship with this show. It has moments of brilliance and it’s full of great actors (Viola Davis, Liza Weil, who if this name sounds somewhat familiar, played Paris Geller on Gilmore Girls) but sometimes things just are a bit TOO dramatic.

I attempted to watch Wine Country but gave up about 1/3 of the way in.

Listening:

 

Eating:

Pain au chocolat from Paris Baguette

Drinking:

Yorkshire Gold with milk

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.
