It was a long weekend for the husband, whose office was closed from Thursday, to celebrate Independence Day. Usually my city has a parade down the Main Street, featuring motorbikes, gymnasts, school bands, wushu performances, floats and more. But this year, of course, that could not take place! The flyby still did happen though, and the kids loved watching the propeller planes go by in formation – three times!
For July 4th, we did a backyard barbecue with ribeye steak, sausages, asparagus, mini peppers, potatoes, and corn. And I had made my first ever lemon meringue pie!
Other things this past week – tired of waiting for the masks we ordered to arrive (they don’t seem to have shipped still!), I pulled out some old clothes, that small sewing kit tucked away for mending, and checked out a Youtube video for making face masks without a sewing machine

Crazy Delicious on Netflix – love the fun set and the way the contestants get to “forage” for the ingredients instead of that silly race to the pantry that most cooking competitions have.
Crime and Punishment – yes, still
I had toast for breakfast. And we will have dim sum leftovers for lunch. Char siew bao, here I come.
Strawberry and clementine water. That is, I chopped some fruits up, and popped into a glass jug filled with cold water. It sat there overnight. And is nice and refreshing.
I have lots of vegetables to cook up – broccoli in the oven, perhaps, if it’s not too hot.
I was considering making some lemon bars or my favourite lemon bliss cake
