In the old days, we didn't have digital camera so I took this photo from our wedding photo album.
Tonight, we went to California Pizza Kitchen for dinner and I had Grilled Vegetable Salad, it was really delicious! I was too busy playing with the kids so I didn't pay much attention to my food but I remembered that I kept saying to my husband: "this salad is SO good, honey". Highly recommended!!!
I can't tell you enough how excited I am about my 50th Post Giveaway . I am now thinking of adding more gifts but I can't tell you just yet. Please stay tuned until next time!!!

I was too busy to cook this time so I grabbed a couple bags of "TJ's Powerhouse Salad Kit" which is a complete salad with spinach, walnuts, dried edamame, dried blueberries and a blueberry cherry vinaigrette. It was a big hit at the party, so healthy and dee-li-cious!!!
In the evening, I went to see beautiful fireworks in Manhattan Beach with my family. Our friends who hosted the party live on the Strand which is just a couple blocks from the Manhattan Beach Pier. They served fantastic food and drinks prepared by a professional chef and a bartender. Everything was perfectly tasty, YUM! This was the only good photo of fireworks I got. I'm so sad that most of my photos that I took from both parties were blurry. I hope Santa will bring me a new camera this coming Christmas!
Hope everyone has a wonderful week!

It was raining so hard this morning. I was very cold and hungry when I came back home from my dentist. After checking my fridge, I came up with this rice soup.
I started by boiling a pot of water and added about 2 cups of cooked rice. When it was boiling, I added chopped kale,diced celery and tofu, seasoned with soy sauce (or salt) and pepper. I put a half teaspoon of Marmite to add the nice brown color to the soup. Served in a bowl and sprinkled with Nutritional Yeast,...YUM! After giving a stir, it will look like the photo below, Mmmm!!! So tasty and comforting!!!
Last week, I made a huge pot of Vegetable Stock again. I was so proud of myself that I planned ahead for dinner to feed my lovely family when I've been busy working 5 days in a row so I can come home and cook easy veggie soup for them.
I got back home almost 7 pm and the soup was still in the crock-pot. Nobody touched or ate it! I was so upset and asked why they didn't eat the dinner. My husband said the potatoes weren't cooked. I said "WHAT?" and later on, I realized that I forgot to turn on my crock-pot...Ooups!!! My poor boys didn't get to eat dinner until 8 pm that night, it was still yummy though:)
