Angel losing and regaining his appetite

These were taken last Thursday, when Angel had not eaten for 2 days and had vomited bile a few times. He looked fine but slept more. After x-Ray, blood test and ultrasound, he was hospitalised from 4 days on a drip to get him hydrated and to eat and reduce the inflammation of his pancreas and intestines. We are thankful to Rebecca of Lingcat Service who helped to put Angel into the carrier quickly, as it would be quite impossible for us to bring him to Namly Animal Clinic. I could easily carry Bob and scruff Cinnamon by the neck, but not for Angel. He has started eating small portions of food when he came home since Wednesday. However, sis and I don't have much success in giving him his medicine. Luckily, he has responded well to the treatment during his hospitalization.

Attempt to bake bread again

My past attempts in bread baking weren't very successful. The recipe for soft fluffy buns I tried on Sunday didn't produce soft beans, perhaps partly because I used a bit of peanut flour mixed with wholemeal flour instead of 100% plain flour. The buns were on the dense side but I think they taste quite nice with the shredded cheese on top. It was hot and sunny after a cloudy, rainy morning. I took a photo of the sky while feeding the cats that morning.

One dish meals

Mom made yummy pasta instead of her fried rice on Friday. On Saturday, I helped her to make porridge for dinner. Home cooked meals are my favorite.

Azuki beans and dorayaki

I attempted to make dorayaki (Doraemon's favorite snack) again few weeks ago. This time, the azuki bean paste was a bit too sweet and not soft enough. I froze half of the paste which was used in red bean pancakes. I think I'll be buying azuki beans to make more dorayaki, paste and pancakes in future :)
