Post Race feast!


After the race, I rewarded myself a nice sport massage ๐Ÿ˜† at this calming place

It felt great. The massage therapist used the deep pressure technique on some key big muscles. It felt a bit painful at first but definitely helped to relax the muscle. ๐Ÿ™‚

I had a dinner to prepare, so not too much time to nap. but I was super excited because I haven’t cooked a chinese feast for a while.

I made 8 dishes and a soup for 7 people including me and Star. They’re new co-workers of Star. 5 hungry young guys to fed! ๐Ÿ˜†

I thought it was a lot of food but you know what? These guys finished them ALL!!! I was so happy to see all the empty plates! ๐Ÿ˜† Second accomplishment of the day! ๐Ÿ˜€

I bet these dishes are new to you because they’re not usually served in restaurants. So if you’d like to know the recipe or how-to, let me know, I’d love to spread the word about real chinese food. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi. I love to read your blog. I myself am an american born japanese/chinese..but I can’t cook traditional chinese food! Please post your recipes! Esp since I am always at the chinese market, I feel too intimidated to buy chinese spices, white/black fungus,and cooking condiments. Everything you posted looks delicious!

    Everything looks great! Please post some of the recipes if you have the time; that’d be awesome. ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. The massage sounds like the perfect way to reward yourself after the race! Wow, that is a gorgeous spread of food, Coco! I love your adorable apron. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. What a perfect idea getting a massage was! And that meal? Stupendous! I can totally see why it’s all gone…except maybe the one with the fish in it :/

    Have a great night, Coco!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. What a feast! Looks great! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I would love to just stop on over for dinner….tonight…do you mind?? ๐Ÿ™‚ This all looks wonderful Coco! I can’t let Nick see this post because this food puts my “simple dinners” to shame. You are so talented in the kitchen! I love all the pork. I think pork is so underrated here in America.
