Hey everyone, how are you?? Did you enjoy your extra hour of sleep (for those in the US). As for me, I did but for some reason I couldn’t sleep now thus I decided to update this blog! I know it’s Sunday night and I even planned to get up early tomorrow and work out but don’t think it’ll happen.
Sometimes I do have this insomnia when I can’t just fall asleep
because of my snoring hubby. Anyway let’s recap a bit, shall we?
candies from Halloween - untouched! No trick or treaters came by to our house
So we had all these candies lying around since nobody came on Halloween day. I didn’t have any of these, but my hubby, mom and brother been nibbling on those a lot. Good thing I didn’t have much sweet tooth.
Unless it involves Loacker Dark Chocolate! I can hardly resist these!
I admit that I ate majority of this dark chocolate covered wafers!
And I finally tried to strain my yogurt like Tra did so it became creamier! No more watery yogurt for me!
Thanks Tra for the tip!
strain strain- getting rid of the excess water
mixed in some Kashi cereal..hmm hmm hmm....creamy and crunchy!
I don’t have Tofu Press as many other bloggers who like the tofu to be nice and firm. Heck, just prepared a big dish and put something extra heavy on top of the tofu, you get your DIY Tofu Press!
filled in a pyrex container with water and put extra other stuff on top of it. See the water from the tofu?? It got the job done!
Why spend extra $$ just to strain your tofu? In fact the DIY one can do more than 1 tofu! This is the second pressing. The first one had lots more water which I had to throw away or it'd spill out
For a little change of my usual toasted wheat bread with PB, oats or cereal, I ate purple yam for b-fast instead.
one for me, one for hubby. Who says a man/woman only can live with bread/cereal/oats for b-fast?
I don’t usually spend $$ for b-fast but I’ve been having this Subway coupon for a while and it’s getting closer to the expiration date. I got the Egg white Wheat muffin breakfast sandwich.
$1.49 for breakfast sandwich. After tax it was $1.62. Not bad. Usually it costs around $2.00.
The combo was only some steak meat and lettuce. No mayo or cheese as I dislike them all. No tomatoes b/c I don't like to be messy eating at my work desk.
My impression? I’m glad I always make my own b-fast The sandwich just tasted meh for me. It was pretty bland without the addition of mayo or cheese. The steak meat was kinda salty and so did the egg white. The wheat muffin was a bit chewy prolly because I ate it 20 mins later after I got to the office.
Our SoCal weather has been really weird! I call it Summer in November. It was 80-90°F in November and this is in the US!
bright, hot, sunny and very dry! Much like summer! Weird weather. Is 2012 movie coming true?
But I will miss this daylight home commute after the time change though.
sunsets over the hills.
While shopping our grocery this weekend, I saw this lopsided apple and thought it was cute.
I know we just got 4 kitchen rugs last week, but after seeing these we couldn’t resist to get it. It’s more durable, bigger and not to mention it’s easier to clean! Just wipe with damp cloth and be done with it! Dirts won’t stuck on it as much and it’s made of rubber/PVC.
color matches better with the dark wood floor. They're $20 each.so total we spent $60 by getting 3 of these. Oh well.
It was my mom’s birthday today (technically it should be on the 8 but it’s already Nov 8 in Asia. Since she was born in Asia, we use Asian time) so I decided to take her out for a little shoe shopping. But instead getting the shoes, she found some winter clothing. There weren’t much shoes that she liked.
Got all of these at Ross. I offered to pay for all of these and said they'll be for her b'day gift. I know it wasn't much, but at least they'll be useful for her. My mom is afraid of cold weather a lot so she needs more warm clothing
Got this Chocolate cake. 7 candles - Happy birthday MOM!
perfect cake. Everyone got 1 slice and 1 slice left for whoever wants to eat it for b-fast tomorrow morning. this cake taste really light and not sweet at all. Kudos to Asian Bakery!
And while driving earlier, I notice the weather might be cooler again. I heard rain is coming.
Questions of the day:
1. What do you do when you can’t sleep?
You know what I do..haha!
2. Does your significant other or whoever share the same room with you snore? What do you do?
Mine does! Usually the remedy is I go to sleep first. There are times when I’m tired enough I still be able to go to sleep even though he’s kinda snoring.
