My Week in Food

Am quite pleased with our meals at home, and with the way my classes at the Y are going. Might teach Baking for Beginners but need to brush up first and study cake decorating.

We had, over the past week:

Shrimp Monggo and Fried Pampano
Tempura Shrimp and Beef Sukiyaki
Hainanese Chicken Rice with Chinese Spinach and Beancurd Soup
Arroz A La Cubana with Fried Potato Wedges
Home-Made Pesto Pasta

Tonight we're having Pork and Chicken BBQ with Java Rice and Ginataang Veggies and my comfort food: radish and carrot atsara like my mom makes. We've found a yummy "timpla" for the BBQ. Not quite like my fave back home but good enough.

Saturday is hubby's day so for lunch we're doing the Shake 'Em Buns experience with Chili Dogs and Nachos with the works, then for dinner it's Roast Garlic Chicken with Haricot Verts and a Salad.

All home-made!

Sunday is eating out day!

Next week I might grill some Lemon Prawns and make Chicken and Mushroom Pasta.

Beth is really good at cooking already and I like buying her cookbooks. She likes poring over them too.

Hi Ichabod.

Yes I do teach in HK, but it's kids from various int'l schools, as well as Filipina helpers at the Y. I don't teach other adult classes. I've never studied Cantonese cooking but Martha Sherpa's school in Mongkok sounds interesting. I don't know about the quality of the English but the enrollees seem happy.

Happy cooking!
