Last week was cold and rainy. Look our raining gear!
I remembered to take pics of my lunch twice last week. YEY~
Indian roasted root vegetables, fried okra and raisin bread.
6 vegetable tart with buckwheat crust at Le Pain Quotidien. Although the tart was delicious, it was too little food, I was starving an hour later and had to run to the cafeteria for a gigantic bagel.
Chocolate protein cake with sunflower seed butter paired with green juice.
grilled cheese with avocado and egg sammie with a new-to-me bread (see below)
This week’s groceries hall from WF and Tj’s
some new products that I’m excited to try:
We went to the outlet on Saturday. Sofia had great time walking around
she knows how to entertain herself
look how cute she is: looking at the price tag in kids section
we found something for all of us. A very productive 3 hrs spent!
On Sunday: I made pumpkin gnocchi using chickpea flour.
the harvest salad was so amazing that after I finished the leftovers, I made some more
Last but not least, I finally made black bean brownies! Let me tell you, this thing is MUCH better than brownies!!! It’s like eating a decadent chocolate fudge cake! When I was eating, I kept saying: I can’t believe this, this is surreal, why I waited so long to make it!!!!!
