Sunday afternoon was nice and relaxing: went to Hela for the facial, introduced Tj’s to my friend (I can’t believe there’s no Tj’s in Chicago) and tried some new ingredients. 🙂
I started my day with this combo (Sarah: I couldn’t find frozen blueberries, otherwise you’ll see a bowl identical to yours)
topping was Kaia sprouted sunflower seeds (garlic and sea salt flavor).
Love the combo! I think oatmeal is finally back to my life! 😆
well…. black fungus is not new for me, but maybe for some of you
dry shitake mushrooms hydrated.
you can find these in asian markets
this is the new ingredient: dried rolled bean curb.
It’s not completely new for me because it’s a common ingredient in China, but I haven’t had it for a long time and almost forgot how good it is.
ingredient list? really short! 🙂
I made a stir-fry soba noodles with them and broccoli.
Delish as all stir-fry soba noodles that I’ve tried so far! 😀
This week’s groceries.
I got Arthur King’s white whole wheat flour because I’m going to make BREAD this week! 😉
New items: goat cheese and prosciutto! 😯 I don’t know how they ended up in my cart… kind of random… but it’s always fun to try new things, right? 😉
New ingredient (courtesy of Foodbuzz Festival last year, I bet many of you have this too).
I used it to bake salmon in addition to the usual cooking wine, soy sauce, brown sugar and sea salt.
It’s an exotic flavor, very interesting. But I think I need to add more of it next time.
For the boy, I made him a japanese meal: roasted pork as I did here
soba noodles following this method
Maggie, tell Bobby that I’d make this meal for him when you come to visit me 🙂
I think the boy liked it! 😉
Hope everyone had a good weekend! Mine was loaded with work but I got some good sleep, so it was recharging anyway.
March is here. This month will be challenging for me but I’ll do my best to keep stress level under control! 🙂
Q1: What’s your goal of march?
Q2: Favorite chicken recipe?
