A crazy busy day, starting off with waking up early to bake these scrumptious BBQ pork buns. You won’t find the fatty BBQ pork inside these homemade ones (unlike the store bought ones). Now that I got the recipe for these soft fluffy dinner rolls down (will share recipe later), you can pretty much do whatever with them. IMG_7057

Dai Bee has music (choir) competition in the morning, two placement tests (math and language), and fencing late afternoon. Ah Lo has two basketball games today as well. Now you know why I baked these, just to get the boys off the right feet for a busy day ahead.

A Friday ritual.

A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week.

A simple, special, extraordinary moment.

A moment I want to pause, savor and remember – {this moment}

Just updated our trip to the backcountry.

Enjoy.

Ok, adding another title to Dai Bee’s role. He’s not only a big brother, a friend, a mentor, a piano teacher, a parnter in crime, and a math tutor to Ah Lo. IMG_7041

Love the meatless Monday meal today, especially the lotus roots (a good source of iron and vitamins) stir fry with fungus. IMG_7025

Last night got the boys to help out with kneading dough (making breakfast). Of course, they had too much fun and start goofing around. Right when I was about to calm them down, I sat back and decided to enjoy the giggles and silliness altogether.

Made a long overdue trip to Costco and packed the fridge with veggies and meat. Happy to find ourselves some lamb loins for dinner tonight. I especially like these ones from Costco, since they don’t have such strong gaming taste to it. Boys all love it! Dai Bee did a quick calculation of this meal which was $27. He thought it was well worth it, since it would be $27 per person if we were to eat out.

Normally, the boys go to fencing on their own. However, today Dai Bee has track meet and won’t be back in time. And I can’t get leave work early. This means Ah Lo has to lug his big old bag and go there by himself. While at work, I was so worried about him managing to get there by himself. Sometimes that’s what mothers do,  we worry about this and worry about that. Not only did he get there fine, he was there early. Even my baby is a growing up so fast.

Another quick and easy meal for our busy Wednesday night schedule – one with basketball practice and another violin lesson. FullSizeRender
