Now that the boys are off to camp, I have all the time in the world! What to do? Baking bread of course! Garlic and cheese bread…Love the smell of fresh baked bread.

Breakfast I made this weekend for Ah Lo and myself (Mr. Piggy is not a big fan of porridge). Oh well, more for us!IMG_8647Baked some fresh bread on Saturday morning to load up Ah Lo with carbs for his triathlon.IMG_8602

 

Been trying to make these steamed rice rolls. I failed miserably the first time I made up. Gave up. Then my sister tried it and inspired me for a second attempt. I tried again, but failed again. So she came to my house and personally demonstrated with her recipe. After several attempts, I finally got it right. IMG_8428

Here’s the recipe:

  • 1 cup of water
  • 6 tablespoons of wheat starch
  • 6 tablespoons of rice flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt

Generously oil a flat plate, pour in about 1/4 cup of the batter (really depends on how big the plate is – mine was 6 inches). Here I added some dried shrimp and green onions. Steam for exactly 3 minutes. Once the flour mixture turns white and slightly translucent, remove it from steamer. Using a rubber spatula and fold it. This requires some practice. Do it 10-20 times until you’ll get the hang of it.

 

This is my imagination of what a hearty breakfast looks like.  Made a couple of these platters of turnip cakes this past weekend. Finally today I pan fried them for the boys to try.  They loved it. Luckily I made more.

Always happy to get some ripe bananas from the inlaws. I had to snatch it from them before the bananas go to compost! This is what I did with them. One of the boys’ favorite breakfast.IMG_8279

With InstaPot I made some porridge using leftover rice. While waiting for the boys to get ready, I decided to fancy up the porridge. I saw these on an Instagram post once and replicate them.  The Korean anchovies are homemade and add some peanuts, now the porridge are ready to be eaten. FullSizeRender 10

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}

Boys’ breakfast this morning. Similar to these.

Saw these “open-faced” fruit sandwiches on Instagram and instantly fell in love with the color, not to mention the nutritional factor. So since this is testing week for the boys, I thought it’d be the perfect time to make them for breakfast. Then I found out the test happened last week. Oh wells, at least they are having something nutritious.

Piano recitals back to back (last night with Ah Lo and tonight with Dai Bee). In the morning, I made the boys turkey and cheese sandwich (Grand Piano) and PBJ sandwich (piano keys) for breakfast. Just felt like making them when I got up this morning since it’s been awhile. Oh I miss playing with food!IMG_7120Untitled-3

Also came in the mail today was the children’s magazine that published one of Ah Lo’s poems. Coincidentally the poem they chose to publish is about the piano which goes perfectly with our music theme this weekend.
