Doesn’t really look like summer is here in Toronto but it is summer already. I hope the weather will get better and stop with the gloomy weather. From what I remembered – last year wasn’t like this at all. What happened to you Toronto? Anyways – I’ve been looking at boat cover for a friends’ boat. I can’t wait to head out and ride on the boat and just enjoy the sunny weather.
Hubby finally had a day off last Friday and we went out to check out those exciting studio headphones at the music shop. I’ve been wanting one for a long time and I think I will be getting them for our second wedding anniversary. With a blink of an eye – our second wedding anniversary is on the way. Time flies and our love continues to grow. I cannot ask for a better husband!
I always love making food at home – like daily meals and party food. But never really got that much of a chance to do so since I still live with the in-laws and my mother-in-law does all the dinner cooking. Now that I stay home more with my son – I try to do most of my lunch cooking. I love cooking and I enjoy placing my food nicely. I can’t say I’m the best at it because I didn’t really take any culinary school but it’s on the edible side.
If I have a chance to go for culinary – I would go to culinary Schools in Virginia. My friend told me all about it and how much she learned from her program. There’s many culinary schools in Virginia and these schools will actually open up a career for their students. Right when my friend graduated – she got a job as a chef at a restaurant immediately because of the well-known school she gone to. She tells me how happy she is to be a chef and be in the kitchen all the time. Having her customers eating the food she makes gives her a smile. It’s just a very rewarding feeling for her and I am so happy for her to see her where she is in life. Nothing is as important as loving the career you’re in. You get to live life once – live it doing the things you love and enjoy the most right? I’ll think about culinary school when my son is a little older. I want to take culinary school as a hobby where I can cook at home for my family and friends. There’s just too much on my plate right now to start culinary – I’m sure in a couple of years – I’ll be a chef at home for my own family! Just remember – life is amazing! Enjoy it to the fullest!
I’ve been quite busy juggling everything on my plate. From taking care of my son to getting housework done to online business to online blogging work to spending time with family and friends. It’s been a whole lot! Quite a bit and I’m glad I’m slowly getting used to this kind of schedule for myself. Just last week I got printing business cards done. I know it’s not necessary but makes it look more professional this way. I like to be unique!
I’ve been to Golden Phoenix no more than five times. This restaurant has been open for a while now – quite on the popular side I must say. I’m not really a fan of their food or prices. It’s a bit on the pricier side and to me – the food tastes average. They do have quite a bit of specialty dishes here.
Baked Cheese Tomato w/ Pork Chop Rce && Baked Portuguese Chicken Rice
I ordered their famous Pork Chop bun. It was fairly fresh – if I remember correctly – it was around $5.00 without a drink. The first time I had it – it wasn’t anything special to me. I prefer the Pork Chop Bun from New City Restaurant. But after trying it out again – it’s really not that bad. The pork chop was really fresh! Would be great if it came with fries too. Overall – a fairly pricey restaurant but I guess what attracts people to this restaurant is that they do have some specialty dishes. After such a big lunch – we headed to check out a leather wallet for my brother.
Well well well – I wouldn’t call this “traditional” but it’s still a Chinese food dinner. I’ve been to China and had their “traditional” dinner and it’s very different from the food my step-mom makes. I’m just not too used to the actual traditional food. Though I do still call this the “traditional” Chinese dinner because I’ve had this most of my life and these are the Chinese food that comforts my tummy. Ever since moving out and into my husband’s home – I haven’t had this for quite awhile. Since my step-mom is hardly back in Canada – I had to request her to cook whenever she is back. We headed to her place for dinner after we pick up a cheap yamaha dgx 640 at the music shop. It was indeed a very satisfying dinner. It may look simple but I love it!
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?
This is the best Pho I ever had in my life – no lies. My best friend’s mother makes the best Vietnamese food and every time I go over – I have to ask if she made food that day! Since I’ve been having so much of her food – next time I’m going to bring over a maschine mikro for her daughters. The most important thing about Vietnamese food is the soup base – without it – food wouldn’t be that good. I wonder why can’t Vietnamese restaurants cook like her!
