Weekend happening

A quick post before we continue the weekend-happening πŸ˜‰

Yesterday was a busy day. We visited our acupuncturist in the morning; I baked and cooked in the afternoon; we went Β to a friends’ for dinner and we ended up singing karaoke until midnight~~~

It was one friend’s birthday and she organized a potluck


She told me once that she likes German bread, so German Dark Rye Bread I made



German Dark Rye Bread (for bread machine)

  • 1.5 cups warm water
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 2 tsps salt
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 Tablespoon caraway seeds
  • 1.5 cups rye flour
  • 1 cups all purpose flour
  • 1.5 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup vital gluten
  • 1 tbsp yeast

I also made a broccoli cheesecake



I followed this recipe, simply replaced zucchini by broccoli.

They liked both of them πŸ˜†

We also had cheese






my bread πŸ˜‰



other dishes that I forgot to take pics: greek salad, couscous salad and ravioli


and an armenian girl made baklava


after dinner… we went to Muzette, a karaoke place. It was fun! πŸ™‚

This morning we went to do some shopping (all for Star) and we just finished lunch at a Thai restaurant. Now we’re taking some rest before going to see Stomp! (I might squeeze multi-grain bread in between ;)). We saw this group years ago in Buenos Aires and we were both very impressed by their creativity. I am sure they won’t disappoint us tonight πŸ˜‰

Q: What are you doing this weekend?
