How was your weekend?
We did quite a few things last weekend. Played tennis, the kids went biking with friends while the husband and I walked.
It was hot though!
A friend gave us some avocados so we’ve been having a lots of avocados. I cooked some cold soba and also these tempura prawns are from the freezer section at Costco.
I made funfetti cupcakes for a small birthday celebration for the almost 10-year-old with some friends.
We also had his favourite takeout – burgers! This one is mine. Full of spinach, alfalfa sprouts, spring mix, roasted red peppers. There’s also beef in there somewhere 😛
And we tried a new eatery. We had (from top right) beef rolls (it’s rolled in a green onion pancake), green onion pancake, stirfried green beans, spicy beef soup (I hadn’t poured in the spicy soup yet, and ooh it was Spicy!), zhajiangmian, xiaolongbao.

Haven’t quite settled on something new to watch yet!
Still listening to Shuggie Bain. It’s really good, though it’s taking me a while to get through it! I especially appreciate all the accents the narrator uses.
Eating and drinking:
I had toast with peanut butter for breakfast. Also my usual tea with milk.
I’ll probably make something (or maybe we will buy something?) for the birthday boy’s actual day this week.
Other things to cook…maybe some hamachi kama or grilled yellowtail cheeks. I’ll serve it with rice and some vegetables. Or maybe vegetable soup.
