It’s Monday (May 4, 2020)


Oops I managed to see the calendar wrongly and thought May 2 was Monday. The days seem to pass by so differently these days and I feel like I get mixed up even more.

I’m at a bit of a loss of what to update this week. Let’s see….

The kids’ teachers had Thursday and Friday to do some distance learning education with the rest of the school district. So they didn’t assign much work, but had the kids mostly catch up on other stuff outstanding or upcoming projects and presentations. Instead we did lots of reading, some science online stuff on Brainpop and Mystery Science and did lots of exercise like walking, biking, and running around the backyard with water guns. They had a blast.

Let’s see what else…they also made a brownie together. They did pretty much all the work – I helped with the chopping of the chocolate, taking things in and out of the microwave and the oven.


Other things eaten this week…

Japanese curry – the meal that keeps on going. I made one big pot with chicken, carrots, broccoli stems, and cabbage. The four of us ate it for two dinners, and there was still enough for lunch for the husband and myself the third day. There wasn’t enough rice for myself though so I cooked some instant noodles and poured the curry on top.

Our local ramen place was open again this weekend and we were happy to do some takeout from there. The kids love the lychee slush too and I discovered it could be quite yummy with some gin! 🙂








The Nine – Tracy Townsend





Nadiya’s Time to Eat on Netflix

I watched the first episode before lunch and thought, hey that’s what I can make for lunch. She beats up some eggs, pours it into a frying pan, puts on some sliced mushrooms, then places on top a tortilla which has been slathered with some tomato paste on one side. Press the tortilla onto the omelette, cook for 30 seconds then flip over and cook on the tortilla side. Roll it up. I didn’t have mushrooms but I had cheese and spring onions and thought, hey that makes for a different kind of tortilla lunch. It was quick and easy. I’ll try it next time with mushrooms, maybe ham. Definitely the cheese too.


Frankly in Love – David Yoon



I’m writing this on Sunday afternoon so I just had the takeout from our local ramen place. I like their chicken katsu bowl.


Lychee slush with some gin in it


Japchae or Korean-style sweet potato noodles

Some thing with Mahi-mahi. I happened to get some frozen mahi-mahi in our last delivery. Not sure what to cook with it yet.

Maybe risotto, if I can find some parmesan!

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



  1. Ooh, that egg/tortilla roll-up thing looks delish! I will have to try it myself — I bought a giant thing of tortillas from Costco right before All This, and I still have loads of them to get through. It’s always nice to do something clever with eggs! I wonder if I could use pesto as well as tomato paste, on the tortilla — I love doing a pesto and feta breakfast taco, and I bet it would be good in this configuration also.
