After a good two hours checking the turnkey printing website – hubby and I decided we’ll just have brunch at home. It’s easy to make and it is fast. Of course I made the brunch and my hubby washed the dishes. I enjoy cooking a lot at home – just that I don’t get much of a chance to cook.
We had an egg, four piece of bacon, a slice of toast, and half an orange. Can you say healthy much? Well only the whole wheat bread and orange is healthy. The bacon is the most unhealthy part of this brunch. Good thing is – it’s low salt. I wouldn’t make breakfast or lunch like this every day because it is unhealthy. But once a week is good. Do you break breakfast or brunch?
My blog is full of food pictures at restaurants, you probably think I hardly or even NEVER eat at home. Truth be told – I eat 75% of my meals at home – I just never really took any pictures of it. I thought it wouldn’t be that appealing to anyone. So here it is – these are the lunches I usually make at home for myself. I try to have my lunches at home through Monday to Friday. For dinners – I’d like to stay home Sunday to Thursdays. I don’t dine out that much do I?
My favorite noodle is the rice noodle! I can have it every day but than rice noodle has a lot of carbohydrates which I’m trying to cut down on. So I eat rice noodles less now. I always have a variety in my lunches. It has to have meat and veg!
Here’s a pasta lunch meal. I hardly make pasta because again – the carbs is no good for me! So what do I end up eating than? Well – egg noodle is the best to eat. I eat it mostly because it’s healthy and less carbs. See how annoying it is losing weight? I don’t mind eating healthy now – I just have to make it in an habit.
Making dinner can be special because I don’t make it often enough at home since we live with my husband’s family. My mother-in-law takes care of dinner at home for us. We don’t have to worry about no dinner during weekdays and during weekends we dine out. Valentine’s day dinner took me about half an hour to make – had to kind of rush it because we were running late.
Not that appealing right? That’s for rushing but next Valentine’s day will be better hopefully. Made grilled chicken, baked cheese spaghetti with shrimp, and baked potato. Nothing too fancy.
We had some cakes to top off dinner. Not really a cake fan – so we bought a baby size cake instead. I was eying the cupcakes but they seem to be too sweet for my liking. I’ve been cutting down my sugar a lot these days. Gotta be health right?
Of course our munchkin joined us this year – our little special creation.
Hub and I have been staying home a lot more for dinners these days. Usually my mother in law cooks dinner and we have dinner at home from Monday to Thursday. Than the weekend is her day off – which means we get to enjoy restaurant food too. I enjoy both worlds – I mean I don’t have to eat out all the time but I do enjoy being served and trying different cuisines.
But I can’t wait to own our own place and make my own food one day. It’ll be fun thinking about each meal for my own family. Do you enjoy eating our or just making your own food?
Since the day I know I’ve diabetes – I eat at home much more often than before. It’s hard to control what I eat at a restaurant – so its better to eat at home right? Well – I usually eat lunch at home but now I gotta have most of my dinners at home as well. I don’t mind eating at home really – but hubby is a different story. He enjoys eating out more than I do.
I love all kinds of noodles – egg noodles, rice noodles, or instant noodles. It just depends on what I’m craving that day! I usually fried an egg or boil an egg and add Korean beef slices with it. I’m low on iron – so gotta have my irons!
Aren’t these mini cupcakes cute? I decided to bake one afternoon – for no reason? Just random. I love baking but I don’t enjoy the washing afterward. I think for my future house – I better have a dish washer – so I would enjoy baking more instead of washing a bunch of dishes after I finish baking. The mini cupcakes didn’t turn out all that great – it was a lil burnt because I over baked it. Yikes – gotta be more careful next time eh?
I still had a couple bites though! I just need to bake it for a shorter period of time because these are so tiny!
This was actually my first time making sushi at home – it was a lot of fun making it. It looks easy but there’s actually a lot of work into it! I’m glad my friend taught me a lot when she made it for me to try. It’s actually very easy but a lot of preparation to do! Overall – it’s very inexpensive to make sushi at home!
1. Make sure you prepare the rice 2 hours ahead – so the rice have enough time to cool.
2. If your having raw fish – do cut them up quickly and put it back to the fridge. Raw fish is easy to get contaminated
3. Cut up your ingredients when rice is cooling.
4. Lay all ingredients around you – so it’s easy to reach when your making sushi.
5. Make sure all your surroundings are clean and dry.
6. Be very careful when your cutting the sushi. The sushi knives is very sharp – you may accidentally cut yourself.
Not a lot of tips – but it should be good enough to share with you all. It was fun – but a lot of washing afterward! Making sushi at home allows you to be creative. It brings out your creative side – I would make sushi again when I have a large party because it involves a lot of work. Gotta make it worth it right?
Hubby and I are heading to pottery barn this weekend for their pottery barn coupons at dropdowndeals. I’ve been obsessed with coupons since I watched Extereme Couponing on TLC. Can’t help it – its so tempting, but this time we’re going to pick up some Christmas gift for the my mother-in-law because she loves collecting unique kitchenwares and I like browsing through them to get some ideas for my future kitchen. I’ve been self-controlled for not buying anything for our kitchen yet because I want to get it all at once and even if I get it now – I won’t be able to use it right? So save the best to later.
