Food: in and out


As I mentioned before, I don’t cook in a daily basis anymore but when we host a dinner or party, I like to do the cooking myself because I want to offer the best to my guests (don’t let my mom know :)).

Two weeks ago we invited Star’s coworkers for dinner so I made some chinese dishes

my most proud dish: red sauced pork
