It’s Monday, again! How was your weekend? We actually had good air quality for a few days so it was nice to take walks, let the boys go to the park for a bit, get some fresh air. But today, the air quality is back in the not-so-good range again. Here’s hoping it will clear up again!
I did some baking on Thursday, churning out my favourite walnut bread (recipe from King Arthur Flour) as well as some scones (my favourite recipe is from The Baking Bible and they are the most buttery scones ever).
We got flu shots over the weekend!
Had a hankering for laksa over the weekend. Luckily had some of the ingredients and the laksa paste!
We had Korean fried chicken from Bonchon – half spicy, half soy garlic. Wasn’t very good, sadly.
The Deep – Alma Katsu
We recently got HBO Max after switching to AT&T and that means I finally get to watch Game of Thrones.
The Woman in White – Wilkie Collins
Had homemade walnut bread for breakfast
The 7yo told me last night, “we haven’t had Japanese curry for a long time!” So Japanese curry it is.
Also I feel like having pad thai so will try to make some later this week.

Is that the fried tofu in the laksa?

That’s the fish cake or rather it’s labeled as “fish tofu”
Nice to “meet” you! Guessing you are in the Pacific NW since you mentioned the air quality – wow, you all have been through a lot recently!
I have been wanting to read The Woman in White but haven’t gotten to it yet. Sounds like a good one for this season!
Mmm … curry and Pad Thai – yum! We love both Indian and Thai curries – I didn’t realize there was Japanese curry, too. I love your photos and food pics, by the way.
Hope you have been enjoying your books this week –
