Shame! Shame! Shame!
I’ve had people say they’re disappointed of me in jest because I listen, and actually like, country music. But I just like music in general, no matter what the genre, as long as it appeals to any of my senses, not just the ears. But with country music, I believe what appeals to me the most are the intricate stories woven into the whole song. This is also, I believe, why newly ordinated saint Taylor Swift’s album 1989 was, is, such a huge success. She fused that one great element of country, with pop, to appeal to a broader audience.
I’m not ashamed to admit it, but it was Carrie Underwood who introduced me to country music, with her rendition and collaboration with the band Rascal Flatts on their song “Bless the Broken Road”. That song is just positive, uplifting and inspirational in general.

It’s almost the weekend! It’s going to be a sunny one at that so I’d probably be doing something interesting, hopefully, again.
Adding some sort of jam to our cereals is really a smart way to freshen up cereals. I wish we’d have thought of this sooner.

Going on third week of being a vegetarian and I think I need to do something about why I have been feeling tired a lot lately. Maybe I need to take vitamin or protein supplements. Anyway, on to today’s dish.
This napolitan spaghetti reminds me of the one we had back home. It’s a little bit on the sweet side for my liking, but the saltiness of the egg certainly balances the entire dish.

That’s danish bread and cheese-paprika omelette.

I’ll just focus on dinners in this entry.
Dinner – Saturday
Marlo and I decided to go on a road trip with some friends and we found ourselves ending up at Enoshima, and eventually Red Lobster. Now this was the first time I am ordering something at a restaurant, and explicitly giving the waitress an instruction to remove the meat. For some reason I felt awkward while doing it. Anyway, I ended up with a meat-free taco salad, with a side of onion rings.

I think my creativity is taking a nose-dive. From now on I’ll just skip the narration and go straight to the food.
The danish bread is back! This is just peanut butter and jelly(strawberry and blueberry jam) with egg on the side.

My mom and my friends are asking for it so yes, some of chef’s dishes will have its own recipe blog post. We are still trying to figure out the format and the frequency of those blog posts but until then, on to the food!
Repeat! It finally happened. We made this breakfast a couple of days ago, but since it was really good, I didn’t mind. In fact, more please!

This 30-day challenge isn’t even done yet and we found ourselves last night thinking of other experiments we can do for the succeeding months. Maybe a 30-day challenge about learning how to play the keyboard or the guitar, all for the purpose of self improvement. We’ll see. But on to the food.
It’s a cereal day. So basically we mix 2 types of cereals, the flat ones and the fruit-granola mix. As usual, we put milk and yogurt, plus the flavour of the week, which in this case is blueberry jam.

After a week of only eating plants, I would say that the hardest part in switching our diet is not that we can not have meat. But rather it is the fact that we had to make a conscious effort discerning what type of food we eat. Are we getting enough proteins? Are we eating too much tofu? Are we consuming enough fibrous foods?
These are questions that should be asked on a regular basis but since you can just eat whatever you want, you rarely put a second thought into.
The combination of the avocados and the roasted sesame seeds really made this dish stand out. Again, roasted sesame seeds MADE this dish. Ever since my mom introduced chef and myself to roasted sesame seeds, we never looked at it the same way again. Just pan-fry a quarter cup of seeds and try them, your taste buds will thank you for it

Hurrah! We’ve managed to get through a week by just eating veggies (and seafood for chef). Ever since we started this month long experiment, we have been trying all sorts of vegetables we see on the supermarket. Like for example the Japanese Ginger (myouga), which tasted great, grilled or sauted.
For breakfast, we used the leftover sauce from yesterday’s dinner. But instead of using pasta as a carb source, we used rice, then added a sunny-side egg on top to finish the dish.
