Day 151 – Veggie Corn Pasta

Day 151 - Veggie Corn Pasta

Looks like summer is at its peak, having really hot days. Being a winter person, I cannot handle the heat. If I turn off the air conditioning for a few minutes, I get dizzy and I start freaking out. Hopefully I’ll feel better in a few days as my body get used to the sun and the heat. Late this evening, I baked a “chocolate almond upside-down cake” to surprise my friend on her birthday tomorrow, I can’t wait for the dawn to break. Since I was busy with baking, I made a quick veggie pasta for dinner.

Day 133 – Pasta Scrambled Eggs

Day 133 - Pasta Scrambled Eggs

How to make the best scrambled eggs? My answer would be make the worst omelette and you get the perfect scrambled eggs. I am an expert when it comes to making the best scrambled eggs. For dinner, I turned “Pasta Omelette”  into “Pasta scrambled eggs”. My hubby got confused seeing the pasta scrambled eggs and he was curious enough: were you trying to make omelette? Me: Nope, pasta scrambled eggs right from the start :P Him: Whatever and gobbled up. In my mind: Whoever came up with the name scrambled eggs is a genius! Have a great weekend everyone!

Day 81 – Beef Roast and Palada

Day 81 - Palada, Beef Roast and Saffron Pasta Pudding

I was a bit frustrated today and to ease off I entered my kitchen and cooked. Its been a long time since I made Palada or Rice Crepes, my mom makes this on special days. Palada and Caramelized Onion Beef Roast along with Saffron Pasta Pudding helped to cheer me up.

Day 72 – Spring Onion Chicken and Corn Pasta

Day 72 - Spring Onion Chicken and Corn Pasta

Why do weekends always end so fast??? I had a really lazy weekend, most of the time I was glued to my couch watching movies, browsing and listening to music. I felt so hard to move from my couch and to make tonight’s dinner. When the clock ticked 8 pm, I had no other choice but push myself to the kitchen. When I started cooking, the warmth from the heat and the aroma from the ingredients opened my senses and suddenly I regained my passion. Made spring onion chicken and corn pasta.
