After 10 days of madness between a trip, 75 job applications and 3 interviews, I was exhausted. I needed urgently to
- sleep >6 a night
- waking up without questions and to-do list in mind
- eat properly
- visit my kitchen
- do groceries
- reply personal emails
- workout (haven’t workout for >10 days, a record!)
Thursday after 3 PM I was ready to cross all these! 😀
I’ve been making this combo as breakfast/snack/ and really like it
Oatmeal bread, LC, homemade apple butter and handful of spinach
grill for 5 min
Star requested more peanut cookies, so as a good wife and baking lover, cookies I baked 😉
Last time I first made Peanut Butter and then the cookie dough, this time I simplified the process. I processed 1 cup of roasted peanuts with 1/8 cup oil and 1/8 cup water; then added 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup flour (+1 tbsp baking powder). The dough is very crumbly, it requires 2 hours in the fridge.
then make cookies and bake at 375 F 30 min.
the texture is great, crunchy and very Peanut! 😀 Star loved it 😉
Another thing that I prepared for Star was candied ginger. It’s not for snack purpose, but more for health purpose. According to TCM, he is in lack of yang, which makes him to feel cold often and to have slow digestion. One thing for this kind of person is GINGER, peeled ginger.
Ingredients: Crystal Candy (to balance the heat of the ginger) and peeled ginger
Bake the whole piece of ginger at 350 F for 2 hours. Peel and slice
this is chinese crystal candy
take two big pieces, dissolve it with some water and add sliced ginger.
Cook at low for 1 hours.
To serve: take 2-3 slices of ginger and add hot water. Drink the water and eat the ginger. You’ll feel warm immediately. 🙂
And then I finally cooked a meal!!!
It’s as simple as stir-fry tofu with shiitake and tofu
served with brown rice
Q: How’s your weekend? Ours is good! A low key weekend that involves homemade chinese food, walking around, a movie, farmer’s market and more 😉
