Random thought: Why do we usually sneeze in pairs?
This past week off has been a lazy one. I’ve slept in every day. It’ll be difficult going back to work tomorrow. Today was no different. I didn’t roll out of bed until after 10am. The sister stayed the night, and so we woke up to RV preparing French toast and fried potatoes.
We like to use Hawaiian sweet rolls or pan de leche [Filipino sweet rolls] for our French toast. It gives it an extra hint of sweetness. This morning, we used pan de leche and topped them with a drizzle of condensed milk! It’s how I’ve made French toast for as long as I can remember, and I’ve since passed that information to RV. :p
Lightly crispy on the outside and soft in the inside. We sprinkled a little bit of paprika and sea salt for flavor.
It was a super low-key day. We didn’t end up meeting with friends at the coffee shop. Instead, we loafed around at home most of the day and did a late Costco run. Unfortunately since they all carry different items, we couldn’t find the udon noodles we’d picked up at the Costco in the East Bay. We picked up a rotisserie chicken to go with our otherwise vegetarian meal of hummus and baba ghanoush instead.
Homemade baba ghanoush! This has got to be one of my favorite ways to eat eggplant. Another favorite is stuffed [often found at dim sum restaurants], which one of these days I will have to learn.
Homemade hummus! I soaked the chickpeas for part of the day, but it was most likely not long enough. The hummus turned out quite dry even after boiling them for what seemed like an hour. Next time I will try soaking them overnight!
I love my food processor! The last time we had Mediterranean night, I was still using the old machine. It was smaller and louder! The new one is so much better. I made plenty of everything, so I will be bringing that to work for lunch tomorrow. In fact, I made so much that both the sister and RV are bringing some to work tomorrow.
Does anyone else watch Modern Family?
It appears that there haven’t been new shows lately [at least on Hulu], so after RV dropped the sister off at home, we watched Pushing Daisies on Netflix instead. I remember a few episodes when it was on the air, but I’ve always been terrible at following shows. Considering it only lasted two seasons, we’ll be caught up in no time… even if our television habit is usually less than an hour a week! You can tell we’re a hit at parties when we don’t understand all the television references thrown at us. :/
How much television [real-time or internet] do you watch a week?
