Life: Happy Chinese New Year

Posted Feb 10 2013 12:00am

Happy Chinese New Year!!! We celebrated as a family of four and it was WONDERFUL!

Last year at the first day of chinese new year, I found out I was pregnant. This year, I got to spend it with this little angel. Can’t be happier!!! :lol:

Saturday: I started the weekend with baking. It’s becoming a tradition! :)

I made a batch of high protein blueberries muffins for my next week’s snack. (recipe to come)

It’s dense, moisture, fruity and flavorful. My parents love it and keeps telling me that my baking skills is getting better and better. ;)

Her sleep is changing lately… more on that later.

I went to do groceries and got few new-to-me products

Tj’s turkey burger and yoga apple chips. These chips are amazing…. so crunchy and just lightly sweetened. Love it! So bad that it’s $5 a small bag. :( Well…. a treat definitely.

and two theo chocolates. The best chocolate I’ve tried so far… quite expensive too, but they were 2 for 6, so not too bad.

My parents requested “ argentinean milanessas “, so I made some. Just 4 main ingredients: breakfast beef, breadcrumbs, milk and eggs.

done in 10 min! :)

I also prepared my next week’s lunch. Shredded chicken breast cooked in slow cooker (chicken stock, chicken Tsao sauce, Tj’s 12 seasoning and salt).

and then we went to have lunch at Asian Delight, one of our favorite chinese restaurant in the area.

Sofia is so alert these days that she rarely sleeps when we go out because she wants to see everyone everything!!!
