Happy Hour Alone ❤️

He had a tennis match tonight. Yes! I would be enjoying myself whatever.

My own happy hour: Aged Manchego Cheese, Soft Tofu, Broccoli & Tomato with Sesame Sauce & Spicy Garlic, Sparkling Wine

Dinner: Mentaiko Spaghetti with shredded Nori Seaweed

First time I tried this simpler wines, I felt it was too sweet, but today it was a way better. I think rich flavor goes well such as sesame sauce or mentaiko. Or maybe because I was in a good mood!?



I thought this matcha yogurt was a joke. Sourness and bitterness together would be a bad idea. However, it was not bad.

Lunch: Tofu Skin Gyoza, Ume Cucumber

All Day Home & Leftover

He woke me up to watch French Open Tennis Final around 7:50am. It was already on the third set, but I was able to watch Rafael Nadal became 10 times champion there. We were so happy for him!

He set up this Trader Joe’s in the oven.

Breakfast: Cantaloup, Chocolate Croissant, Coffee

Lunch: Shrimp Tiella, Beef Soup Gyoza, Parsley Salad

Dinner: Soba Noodle, Broccoli, Balsamic Pork, Porched Egg (failed)

Cheesy Mexican Chicken

Stopped by Trader Joe’s to get ready for Friday night before a three-day-weekend.

Starter: Blue Corn Tortilla Chips, Chunky Guacamole, Pico de Gallo, Underwood Rose Wine
All from Trader Joe’s. Guacamole is much better than expected. Greek Yogurt makes it creamy and light. I will make my own with yogurt next time.

Main: Cheesy Mexican Chicken
I knew he would enjoy this kind of dish when I saw this video. It’s easy to make and delicious 🙂

Step1. Sauteed onion and bell peppers

Step2. Add pepper jack cheese and cream cheese (I skipped cheddar)

Step3. Rub chicken breast with salt, chili pepper, cumin and garlic powder.

Step4. Cut chicken and stuff cheesy thing into

Step5. Cook each side for 7 minutes

Dinner by Trader Joe’s

College Basketball & Indian Wells Tennis Finals

I feel lazy and grumpy today. Fortunately, I have no errands or activities to rush. While he was busy watching college basketball games and Indian Wells Tennis Finals, I was in bed watching youtube all day. But I still cooked.

Breakfast @ 9am: Banana, Mini Apple Turnover x 2, Coffee

Lunch @ Noon: Make-Ahead Dishes (ponzu bell peppers, broccoli, spicy shrimp), Udon Noodle with egg and veggie tempura

I tried to consume less carbs, so we split one serving udon noodle into 2/3 for him, 1/3 for me.

We still have a lot of Icelandic Chocolate. Just a picture. I didn’t have any.

Around 3pm: Guac & Chips
He came to me and said he was very hungry. Ok. We had a small lunch so was I. I was thinking to drink wine, but didn’t since I often get headache nowadays. Btw, I love this Trader Joe’s chips, which is made out of organic blue corn (stone ground), sprouted Amaranth, quinoa and chia seeds. It not only sounds healthy and nutritious but tastes good! Only $2.99! Thank you, Trader Joe’s for the quality food.

Dinner @ 7pm: Sauteed Pork Tenderloin & Kale
It was very satisfactory to me, but he didn’t like kale. He doesn’t like green vegetables in general, but he finished with painful face. Such a poor guy.
