It’s Monday (March 28, 2022)

Wow we are moving out of March and into April this week!

Some things last week:

Last Monday, I picked up some ranunculus and tulips from Trader Joe’s. I adore ranunculus and had the pleasure of gazing at these flowers on my kitchen table for the week.
Our usual Indian pizza place was closed this weekend! So we tried a different one – there are quite a few here, thanks to a large South Asian population. On the right half is chilli paneer (although it was more like a curry sauce), and the left half is aloo gobi (potatoes, cauliflower, and way too many onions for me). The aloo gobi was surprisingly spicy! But it was the tastier of the two. I think I prefer the pizza from our usual place – it has a better crust and their paneer pizza comes with a garlic sauce which is delicious.
Also picked up some Japanese food last weekend. I had a chirashi bowl.

(Last year’s Black Forest cake)

Ah I didn’t have time to make the sweet potato pie last week, hopefully I’ll be able to this week!! It’s also my older boy’s birthday. He’s asked for a Black Forest cake. Cherries still aren’t in season so I’ve picked up some frozen cherries to make the filling. I’ve been making a Black Forest cake for my husband’s birthday for a few years now as it’s his favourite cake. For the kids, they’ve had funfetti cakes and chocolate cakes. But this year, my son declared that his would be Black Forest too.
