It’s Monday (May 11, 2020)

 

Hello and happy Monday. Hope you all had a good weekend! I had a nice Mother’s Day on Sunday, with a big sushi feast for dinner.

A little Mother’s Day present to myself was that I got to pick up some plants I had ordered from our local ecology centre – I got some sage, thyme, a mini bell pepper, a tomato plant, and hyssop anise.

And unfortunately I can’t do much in the garden for the next few days. I seem to have done something to my knee and it’s been hurting when walking around and if it’s bent for too long.

Cooking:

With my grocery delivery last week, I can make some spaghetti carbonara with bacon. I had been trying to get my hands on Parmesan for a while and finally got it!

My kids aren’t fans of carbonara though but too bad. We are not the kind of family with different meals for kids and adults, unless I am cooking something specifically spicy, especially with a premade paste like laksa. I sometimes sneak in chili flakes into my pasta in an attempt to get the kids to be able to eat spicy food (still not working).

Last week:

  1. Your sushi feast looks wonderful, and happy belated Mother’s Day!! I am sorry to hear about your knee — I have something similar with my foot that’s been preventing me from doing my usual exercise routines (walking two miles or stair-running), so I’ve been doing horrible yoga. I am so not strong and not bendy. 😛
