Going out with a sneeze

I have a cold. It’s full blown-sies. An end of school year gift from my students I’m sure. When I’m under the weather, I don’t feel like doing anything in the kitchen.  Solution: get someone else to do the cooking.

Neal made me this brunch of tofu scramble, fried “ham”, english muffins and strawberries.

And one night we went to Harmony, a veg Chinese restaurant.

Pickled carrots and cabbage, served at the beginning of each meal here. Neal doesn’t like it so I eat it all.

Wonton Soup- we always order this when we eat here.

Salt and Pepper “Squid”- new menu item, second time we’ve gotten it.

Szechuan style green beans- we order this every time we’re here.

Orange “beef”- don’t order this as often, but it was tasty!

I’ve been taking vitamin C, drinking a lot of tea and smoothies, and sucking on Ricola’s non-stop. I sure hope I am feeling back to my old self soon. I’m tired of the stuffed up nose and the Darth Vader-like mouth breathing.IMG_0535 _Snapseed

Any tips on how to curb a cold quick?

Leapin’ lizards!

Life has been happening so I haven’t been as attentive as I would like with the blogosphere lately. So, imagine my surprise when I was nominated for the One Lovely Blog award by The Misfit Baker and the Former Fish Taco Fanatic as well as the Illuminating Blogger Award from Food Stories. Thank you ladies so much! You like me….you really like me!


So as it goes with these awards, I must tell you some random things about myself and of course share the love. First the random things.

1. I have a somewhat unhealthy obsession with postapocalyptic books, movies/tv shows and comics. I secretly train for the zombie apocalypse both physically and mentally.

2. I recently kicked my coffee addiction and am now obsessed with teas. I am currently loving the jasmine fruit rooibos mix from Teavana that N’s parents gave us one year.

3. I make knitted and crocheted goods of the vegan variety (duh, wool’s not vegan!).

4. My mum’s from Thailand and as such I grew up eating all sorts of exotic foods that I crave constantly now as an adult-in-training. Like lychees…I remember eating these fresh in Thailand when I was five.

5. I like it when Miles sneaks onto the bed in the morning even though he’s not allowed.

6. I’m a groupie. N’s in a band called Capillaries.

7. I’m on a never-ending quest to get the perfect shot of Miles floating in midair.

Now my blog picks for being both lovely and illuminating:

1.  2 little rosebuds– A vegan soon to be mom to twins with cool tats…yes!!

2. The Opinioness of the World– A vegan feminist (not necessarily in that order) who makes me constantly rethink how I view the world. Plus, she’s got good taste in books, movies and tv shows.

 3. The Peaceful Pantry – I love the simplicity and yumminess of Amanda’s post. She also seems just super nice…she’s like the vegan neighbor I wish I had.
