New Nails, Fish Soup Noodle & Frozen Yogurt

I usually don’t get nails. Three weeks ago, I got nails for a friend’s wedding. Mmmm, I feel so uplifted. But, my nails grow and get gap so fast. Last couple days, I got nails tipped and peeled so bad and felt so down 😦

So…I stopped by the nail salon and get new nails. Feels like spring and happy again 🙂

Then I went to Huong Vi for dinner. My husband went out with co-workers.

Friday Special: Bún Cá Thì Là $8
I called them to reserve this morning. It’s so delicious.

He came back home and asked me out for frozen yogurt. We had Honey Greek and Caramel Macchiato. What a coincidence! Last year, I had fish soup noodle and frozen yogurt on the same day 😛


Breakfast: Banana, Berries, Icelandic Yogurt

Lunch: Freshy – Steak Peppercorn with Sauteed Carrots & Asparagus, Mashed Potatoes (500 calories, 30g carbs, 6g sugar)

Steak is so tender. This is something I would order again. Portion is kinda big, so I prefer to split two different meals and tastes various food.

I had only berries.

Breakfast #2: Chocolate Roll Danish + Coffee

I think the presentation is a little messy.

Aradaki, Shimmered Fish
It used to have more vegetable but only daikon today. However, it tastes so good. I finished a whole rice with this fish and sauce.

Last week, I found a deal for FRESHLY, microwavable meal delivery service. It’s $39 for 6 meals, which usually cost $59. They offer onvenient, healthy, delicious and sustainable food with all natural/fresh ingredients. I’ve been tired of my own food too. So why not?

Earliest available delivery date was today. Here it is! It was delivered to our room not left at mail box/common area in the building.

Nicely cooled and packed

You could choose from 30 different meals. I picked mostly ‘TOP RATED.’

Dinner #1: 3 minutes in microwave

Dinner #2: 2 minutes in microwave

Perfect dinner got ready in 5 minutes 🙂

Swiss chard, grilled herb chicken, spaghetti squash cake, Mexican street corn, shrimp fajitas: Well seasoned (less salty but effectively spicy). I especially liked spaghetti squash cake, swiss chard and corn.

430 calories, 23g carbs, 4g suger

540 calories, 58g carbs, 18g sugar

We have had only two meals, but I almost conclude that this service would be a good option when I have to leave him home alone or feel too lazy to cook.



Lunch: Brussels Sprouts, Cherry Tomatoes, Furikake Rice
