It’s ALMOST Christmas and we’ve got LOTS OF RAIN here in Los Angeles!
Been raining NON STOP since Saturday! Weather forecast said it’ll be like this until this coming Wednesday.
He had been having nausea on and off before (digestion problem) and it might occur again because he’s been on a lot of TB meds for the past 6 months. Good news is the doctor finally reduced the meds from 4 to 2. 4 more months of treatment and hopefully he’ll be FULLY recovered.
I gave my parents a little Christmas gift: Wrote a Christmas card telling how I appreciated their help all this time here and also our differences in the beginning since I have been independent for the past 10 years. Plus a small Godiva Dark Chocolate truffles and our pictures with them while they were here.
My co worker gave me and my fellow colleagues a box of cookies!
I’ve been a little adventurous in the kitchen lately.
Like this Cauliflower “Fried Rice”.
1/2 of cauliflower (pick the most white and big looking one!)
3 garlic cloves – minced
3 stalks of green onions-chopped (separate the green and white part)
Salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste
1 Tbsp olive oil/butter/lard/coconut oil or whatever oil you like!
Optional: curry powder for a little kick, paprika etc the choice is ENDLESS!
2. Minced the garlic and green onions (reserve the green parts for later use)
3. Heat up the non stick skillet with 1 Tbsp oil (I used olive oil)
4. Saute the garlic and the white part of the green onions until fragrant
5. Mix in the ground cauliflower
7. Mix in the green part of the green onions
8. Ready to devour!
Cauliflower Fried Rice!
Finally, after reading so many raw/vegan cookies on the blogsphere, I decided to try making them my own:
Raw Almond Cookies!
(vegan and gluten free)
Ingredients (I didn’t measure everything exactly)
1/4 cup raw almonds
1/4 cup raw walnuts
1/2 cup golden roasted flaxseeds
1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
2 cups of raw almond butter (I used my homemade almond butter- super easy!)
2 pitted medjool dates
3, Mixed the grounded ingredients with the almond butter
4. Shape into whatever you like! 😀 I didn’t have any cookie cutters so I just shaped them into flat cookie.
5. Chill them in the fridge so they’ll harden a bit
These cookies are VERY RICH, so be mindful of the portion size.
Oh not to forget I also made Vegan Tofu Eggplant Stir Fry.
Super easy and healthy! You can always customize this and turn it into a different kind of stir fry! I LOVE STIR FRY!
On another note, I have a BIG plan for this blog and it might take me quite sometime to actually put together. A little hint, I might merge my other blog content into this one. We’ll see how things go.
Last but not least, I really want to win this iHerb Giveaway!
Have a wonderful Christmas everyone!! Be safe and be merry!
