Making chocolate almond spread

I felt like making something today that could use my Ghiradelli chocolate bars. Since I have some almond meal, I thought I could grind the almond to butter but that didn't happen. My spread is a bit grainy and bittersweet with a tinge of saltiness. I like :)

Organic veggies

I have been getting some organic veggies from a little shop 15 mins' walk away from my home. Since I like to cook my own meals on weekends and eat my bread with capsicum almost every morning, I don't mind paying a bit more :)

Lovely Sat evening with 2 old friends

The 2 girlfriends treated me to dinner at Tamago at Teacher's Estate. We had a short walk at this area in Yishun near Seletar Air Base, where people were enjoying cool breeze, fishing or having a picnic. Before going home, we had dessert at Ice Cream Chefs but we were a bit disappointed by the taste of the ice cream flavours (seems like chocolate flavour is always a safe choice) and the iced mocha.

Modeling for Sis' jewelry

Sis wanted to show visitors how her necklaces look like around the neck and resting on the torso. She asked me if I can be her model. It was quite fun and I made funny smiles even though she wasn't taking photos of my face :) The photos are not up yet but you can visit Sis' shop ( to admire her creations and photos. This photo was taken by me @ a weird angle :)

Head massage for Cinnamon

Dad was giving Cinnamon a massage while reading the newspapers :)

Sweet potatoes, Bob & veggies

I took a break from baking this weekend, but I still wanted to cook my meals. I steamed the organic sweet potatoes for lunch and cooked lots of veggies with minced pork and rice. And I gave Bob and the cats more attention.

Simple yeast-free pizza

I didn't have any yeast at home, so I tried a recipe for yeast-free pizza crust yesterday. My family doesn't like the crust, so the remaining 4 slices will be my breakfast the next few days.

Chocolate milk Popsicles

I made these popsicles for me and sis by first mixing cocoa powder, milk powder, honey and water together and pouring the cooled liquid into my Zoku Popsicle maker. I added green tea powder into my Popsicle which made it sweet and slightly bitter. Sis likes her choc milk popsicle and mom said I'll be making Popsicles every weekend. Maybe :)

Oat yogurt quick bread

I wanted to finish the remaining yogurt and make a simple bread without use of yeast. This recipe seems simple and I wasn't disappointed when I tried it last night and ate with capsicum and mulberry jam for breakfast earlier.

Cake and popsicles

Yesterday I spent the afternoon baking vanilla yogurt cake and making honey lemon popsicles. Both are yummy :)
