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

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.

Sleeping In On Saturday

OMG, I slept in till 12:30pm. He left for a haircut around 8:30am and went straight to tennis match. It was nice of him to keep blind and door shut. Nothing woke me up till so late 😛

Around 1pm: Beard Papa’s Paris Breast Shell with Vanilla Cream + Lukewarm Coffee he brewed in the morning

4pm: Napolitan with onion, green pepper, sausage, brown mushroom, cheese & Tabasco

He missed having lunch between haircut and tennis. I was pretty hungry as well, so we had an early dinner tonight. Later the night, we went grocery shopping to Trader Joe’s.

Around 8pm: Ghost Pepper Potato Ships + Lemon Highball

Trader Joe’s Pollo Asado & His Brussels Sprouts

Brunch: Pastries from Paris Baguette in Koreatown

Dinner: Pollo Asado & Brussels Sprouts

He cooked crispy outside & soft inside brussels sprouts in oven. So good. We tried a new Trader Joe’s product, Pollo Asado. Easy to cook but tastes ok.

Went to see the fireworks at a golf course near by. It was kinda short and we all were like “Is that it???”
