It’s Monday (July 19, 2021)

Happy Monday! How’s your week been?

Some things last week:

My sister ordered some cookies for my birthday last weekend. It arrived on Thursday and were enjoyed by all. There were some fun flavours like birthday cake and a toffee/coffee cookie.
The kids went to a friend’s birthday party. And had a blast playing video games, eating pizza, hanging out. The parents hung out in the backyard. Instead of a birthday cake, there were birthday mochi doughnuts. This is a Smores one.
Yelp recommended this new Asian eatery. It’s interestingly a sushi joint on one side, and the other has rice bowls – Korean and Thai. There’s also a Korean deli section full of various banchan. We picked up some kimbap (Korean-style sushi rolls), some rice bowls, and banchan. I had the spicy pork rice bowl.
The banchan were anchovies and fish cake.




Watching: Making The Cut on Amazon Prime. It’s a fashion reality show, the first series was quite fun where they jetted off to different countries. But this season of course that couldn’t happen. So they’re on a big fancy estate in LA.

Listening: Neil DeGrasse Tyson’s The Pluto Files

Eating: For breakfast, pancakes leftover from yesterday’s breakfast.

Drinking: Tea


After seeing this on Smitten Kitchen, I might make some chicken cutlets.

Then I’m intrigued by this recipe for crispy coconut kale. Although this is the first time I’ve heard of coconut aminos…

Last week:

I read: The Only Child – Mi-Ae Seo

The Other Half of Happy – Rebecca Balcárcel

I posted: Library Loot (July 14 to 20)

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. Mmmm …. I always enjoy your gorgeous food photos!! And those birthday cookies look amazing – what a great idea for a gift!

    I cook with coconut aminos – I can’t tolerate much sugar and usually eat Paleo (to help with health issues), and coconut aminos are common in Paleo recipes. Hope you enjoy your new recipes – and your books, too!!
