It’s Monday (April 3, 2023)

Some things last week:

My older son turned 12 last week! How time flies.

He asked for a Black Forest cake so that’s what I made. It’s a four-layer cake, with homemade cherry filling, fresh whipped cream, and shaved chocolate and raspberries on top.

The birthday boy wanted burgers so we went to get The Counter. This is becoming my usual order – roasted red peppers, baby kale, grilled pineapple, alfalfa, on a brioche bun.
His friends came over on Saturday for video games, nerf gun battles, pizza, and chocolate cupcakes. I used this recipe from King Arthur for the cupcakes.

The kids wanted to try volleyball and so the volleyball season just started on Saturday.
My mum (who’s visiting us from Singapore) loves Korean food, so we went out to a Korean eatery that is more of a street food/drinking place, and had some great Korean fried chicken (it’s served with pickled daikon and cabbage), corn cheese, kimchi fried rice.



Still working on this book, Heart of the Sun Warrior. I also just started A Snake Falls to Earth by Darcie Little Badger last night.


The latest ep of Jinny’s Kitchen on Amazon video


I just finished listening to Pop Song by Larissa Pham

Eating and Drinking:

I had a slice of Black Forest Cake for breakfast!


We have some Korean food leftovers today, but might want to cook some Singapore-style pork stew later this week. I’m also making some tangzhong bread today, and since I have additional heavy cream leftover from the cake making, I’ll make some scones too.

Last week:

I read:

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
