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 :)
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 :)
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.
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 (http://www.etsy.com/shop/ThatSneakyCatShop) to admire her creations and photos. This photo was taken by me @ a weird angle :)
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.
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 :)
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.
