A Housewife’s Tale episode 107

Another week has come and gone. It scares me how times flies, weeks pass in a blink of an eye and before I know it 2 years have passed! After a little over 2 years of travelling, blogging and being domestic; I am totally antsy with this job hunting process and totally stressing out unnecessarily. *sigh* Instead of boring you with the details, let’s just say “job hunting is a rough process”. I shall indulge in more food related stuff to get my mind off this stress~ So, onto the weekly recap…

.

Sunday – Chicken Briyani (Malaysian Style). I used this instant mix and it was quite tasty; although I don’t know why it is “instant” coz I still needed a whole bunch of other ingredients in order to prepare it. Usually instant meant – meat +sauce mix.

Monday Happy Mid Autumn Festival!!! I totally miss home on these Chinese festivals… There are usually reunion dinners at my grandma’s; then visit to the temple where a lot of young-ins hang out w their friends outside (using praying as an excuse to go to the temple at midnight and hang out late); lighting up paper lanterns and watching the kids amuse themselves… 🙂 Good times…  Neways, I went out and bought some moon cakes ~

This is so funny I have to share; a conversation I had w Meep…

me: Happy mooncake festival! want some mooncake?
Meep: You got mooncake? When is it?
me: Today!!! *jumps up and down*
Meep: What??!!! Why didn’t you jus buy mooncake tomorrow when it is HALF off! >.<
me:o_O

So many reasons to love this man. Neways, back to the meals… Dinner was Fish soup! The last couple times I cooked this fish was with salmon head but I had bones and bits of salmon from filleting the salmon I got a few weeks ago that has been frozen. With some extra chunks of salmon belly I bought today, it became a yummy fish soup with tofu.

Tuesday – I picked up some fresh shrimp and pineapple the from the grocery store yesterday, so I figured I will cook some Pineapple Fried Rice since I have not cooked this in months!

.

.

Wednesday – It seems like flu season has begun; everyone around me seems to be coming down w a cold or feeling pretty crap. For some extra nutrients against the cold Meep seems to be getting, I made a giant pot of watercress soup~

Then some sweet sour pork, peas & mushrooms.

Thursday – Meep wanted to go out for ramen so we did~ ^_^ I tried the new Spicy Miso Ramen while he got his usual Tonkotsu Ramen.

Friday – V took me out for dinner since I have been a little stressed out with the whole job search process. She brought me to LB Steak on Santana row for an amazing dinner and then we went out for drinks w her best friend. She definitely went all out – We got this delicious bottle of wine with our meal.

She had Pan roasted dorade, a type of white fish with 1/2 a lobster while I had this great dry aged Rib eye and 1/2 lobster!

Dessert was good too~

Then at the lounge in Hotel Valencia, she opened a bottle of champagne! I was definitely spoiled~ THANKS V! *loves*

Saturday – Meep and I went for a walk around the neighbourhood; stopped by Starbucks for some coffee then Greenlee Bakery and got this delicious Blueberry Poppyseed Cake. It was delicious!!

Had dinner w N to catch up~ We decided on Pho since it has been at least a couple months since we last had Vietnamese.

Another week gone. Wish me luck job hunting!!! Till next week~
