Gathering @ the park in the rain

Last Sat evening, we had the park to ourselves due to the rain. But everywhere was wet and we had to dry Shadow's fur with a piece of cloth. Mom and I stayed longer to keep them company and warm.

Streaks in the sky

Sis noticed this when we were out feeding the community cats this sunny morning.


Yesterday was my first time making scones, as I always thought it would be difficult doing the rubbing in method for the butter into the flour. After trying it, it wasn't that tough, but it did take some time with a soup spoon in one hand and a knife in the other to coat the chilled butter with the dry mixture and cut into smaller pieces. I thought the scones taste quite nice, but my family don't think they are great.

Pasta feast this weekend

Thanks to S, I cooked penne with his yummy bolognese sauce for lunch yesterday and dinner today. He also made pasta salad with fresh veggies and lovely Italian dressing today and that was my lunch.

Dad's little helper

Cinnamon was very curious and sat near Dad and next to the wooden plank this morning, when Dad was fixing up a new cabinet.

Sunflower sprouts

It was my second time buying this box of sunflower sprouts. I've tried eating it with my noodle soup but I think it's best eaten raw with some savoury food, like my cheese muffin or a slice of sweet bread :)

Cheese yogurt muffin

Since I made a batch of Greek yogurt recently, I surfed for a recipe which uses yogurt, shredded cheese (a packet expiring in oct) and lemon (I like lemon zest). I found one that requires the 1st 2 items, so I just added lemon zest and chocolate chips as a variation. I like the end product, but family isn't too keen on the hint of yogurt. Oh well, I'll finish most of the muffins myself with some help from S :)
