Food: dinners and KABOCHA is back!


Dinners had to be quick because I was always tired when I got home, just wanted to eat and visit my couch!

#1: oatmeal, veggie tofu stir-fry

#4 Wonton! Let me show you how I made it. My mom prepared the filling before she left so I just need to wrap them

top with tons of white pepper. The whole dish wouldn’t be the same without white pepper!

And the biggest NEWS is KABOCHA IS BACK TO MY LIFE!!! After not having it for over 5 months (pregnancy aversion), I finally love it again!

Every night I had a bowl of roasted kabocha for dessert, sooooo good! I don’t think I like it steamed yet (as I used to) but I do love cinnamon roasted kabocha. It reminded me grad-student life, when every night Kabocha was my companion. 😉

I still can’t eat steamed corn. I had it once and felt nausea afterwards. I guess the 5 packages that I have in the freeze have to wait a bit longer. 🙂

Q: Have you reunited with any of your past food love recently?
