Happy Monday!

We made it through the first full week of school! The kids are happy to be back. And I am happy to not have to deal with making sure they’re paying attention to Zoom classes!! I’m so glad schools are open. Of course I still have to make sure they do their homework but that’s been ok so far.

Last week, there were 2 positive Covid cases in the school (although apparently the kids may not have actually been in school at the time). The school district sent an email out to all parents. And supposedly, close contacts were notified. The number hasn’t increased since then, so I guess it means that it’s ok?

Went out with some friends on Saturday for what the kids called a “mom date”. Our kids all go to school together and all started out in the same kindergarten class so we’ve been friends since then. We had lots of delicious food from this izakaya style place that also had Malaysian food. It was fun to have a night out without kids!

Singapore-style peanut pancake, called min jian kueh. It uses yeast and baking soda to create a honeycomb look within the pancake.

Cooking:

Chicken stew

Last week I made chilli and we had it with baked potatoes. The kids loved it. And I wanted to do more stuff with baked potatoes this week too. So I was thinking of trying something from this round up of stuffed potatoes. It made me think of when I was studying in the UK, and one cafe at the university had all kinds of baked potatoes and stuffings/toppings.

Also, the kids decided they’re having more school lunch this week. They tried it out last week for the first time. The verdict? The hot dog was yucky but they loved the brownie. Ha.

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. At least around me, the only times I see them on menus here are at steakhouses where you get the usual toppings of sour cream, bacon, butter, chives etc.

      Maybe elsewhere there are baked potato places. I just haven’t come across any in this area before.
