I'm Back!!!

Hello Everyone!

I'm finally making my way back to the blog world after my 6 weeks vacation in Thailand and 5 weeks of jet lag or other excuses I made to whoever asked me why I didn't update my blog for such a long time.

Here I am...trying really hard to publish a new post with tons of pictures to share and so many stories to tell. I'm completely confused while looking at all the pictures and trying to figure out what to do with them and what to say about them.

Well, I should stop worrying about those pictures and show you what I'm cooking today!

Sweet & Sour Easy Veggies

I got this sweet & sour sauce (Roza brand) from Thailand and I was dying to make this dish for the longest time. I know that there are so many great recipes out there to make this sauce but I like to do things easy (lazy way), so I just stir-fried all the veggies with the sauce and used canned mushroom instead of meat and ate it with jusmine rice. So satisfying!

Easy Veggie Thai Red Curry with Tofu

Just wanted to share with you my easy veggie Red Curry with Tofu I cooked to satisfy my craving after I saw it on Kim's Blog the other night. I have tofu, broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, yellow squash, chickpeas and cherry tomatoes. Served with brown rice, I was totally in heaven!!!!
Garden Update # 2

This was how my garden looked like during the time we were in Thailand. My dear friend, Dee Dee who helped us out with watering the plants was so kind to take pictures of our plants and emailed them to us. Thanks so very much, Dee Dee. You're the best!!!

Dee Dee described this pic as "Vine growing onto gravel". And here is the answer for the mystery plant. Please come back soon, I'll show you what I'm going to do with this lovely pumpkin!!!

Hope everyone has a lovely week! Until next time ... :)
