Good Food, Bad Night…

I’m cranky tonite. Having a bad nite *argh* All work no play. Work is stress. Home is stress, I need to get away…

I got lazy and decided not to make groats. I am soaking them in water so I guess I’ll make them tomorrow night instead :] I decided to make my new THICK Rolled Oats from Bob’s Red Mill. Usually I just buy Quaker Oats and I’ve only gotten Red Mill flours and stuff… but these caught my eye :]

My oats came up fluffy and creamy!!! I used a cup of oats w/ 2.5c water. (I split it with my mommy, she was in the mood for oats too!!!)


I had a bowl of oats (about 276g, I told you I weigh randomly on my food scale now that I have one) with tons of brussel sprouts (steamed) and 15 thin/small stalks of asparagus (also steamed) with two small chunks of 豆腐乳.. I’m out :[ I need to go buy more this weekend!!

Also had some green peppers w/ chicken :] Very yummy!!! I ate it with a ton of wild rice, brown rice, grains mixture :] SOOO good.. forgot to take a pic but I had like 3 bowls of that rice!!!

Dessert was Vietnamese Flan from Ba Le :]

It was really good but less…”solid” feeling than the usual flan (umm, less dense I guess it was a lot lighter) but a lot sweeter…. 

& 3 Banana Cakes…

These pink banana filled syrupy cakes are becoming a favorite of mine. The last piece I had tho was a bit more dry.. I think I like them more syrupy (which is funny because I thought it was gross and runny looking at the store and put back the overly runny ones for drier ones… MAN, now I wish I hadn’t…) 

& 2 Baked Rice Cakes… 
These green cakes weren’t as good or chewy as the white rice cakes I love so much.. these were drier.. and more, well, they’re baked so the crust was def. a lot more dry… but they were tasty (and less sweet!) in their own way. Def. more “cakey” then spongey…

After my shower.. I dressed Dior up in one of her.. um, 7 or 8 Halloween Costumes I bought for her

Caterpillar :D SO CUTE!!! 

I watched The Tripper which was.. interesting.. I thought it was kinda funny actually… one of those random over the top boobies galore chop chop fests… poked fun at politics too…

& munched on 3 pieces of chocolate covered fruits (2 orange, 1 peach)

& then another peach one while watching the news and reading my new Food & Wine magazine :]

I’m hungry :[ My mom says I eat too much and to stop :[ I’m such a fatso :[

1o*2o Daily MUNCH – Case of the Mondayssss…

It’s so COLD outside… I had a late start so I ended up parking in a further away lot :[ Super lame. I was in too much of a rush to button up my jacket and by the time I realized how freezing it was I was already teetering around carrying too much stuff to stop and button.

It’s hard to take down my breakfast this morning.. which is silly because all last nite I was daydreaming about my yogurt :] I went to bed STARVED so munched on TWO boxes of poifulls while reading…

I know some of you guys are wondering where I’ve been all weekend. WELL, as you can see I still blogged, but I’ve been having a tough week or two (ugh I can’t sleep and I’m sore and have two pimples cuz of it :[ Blah!) so I went into hiding this weekend. I’m still in semi-hiding mode but of course there’s work and so I publicized everything… ;] I’m sneaky sneaky like that.

Oh, I didn’t mention it in the last post but I watched 30 Days of Night yesterday to get my mood up. Strange, I know. And now I’m planning, in celebration of Halloween, to have a classic movie-fest marathon. I recently bought two classics, Halloween and Hellraiser at Bj’s for like 4$ each (hah) I know it’s strange how obsessive I am with scary movies.. OH, back to 30 Days of Night cheering me up. Bloody + Gory + Creepy, yes. But Josh Hartnett & my love of Vampires = Happy Tiffie. I love how twisted and how opposite of the stereotypical beautiful/seductive/romantic the vampires are in this movie.

The usual, Coffee+Fage+Chia+GoLean

Case of the Mondays :[

I forgot to bring some of the Vietnamese jellies I bought yesterday… Super lame. I have tons of fruits to munch on today tho.. altho I’m not in a munching mood… (for once) but I’m still trying to get thru breakfast so the “not-in-the-mood-for-munching” might change later on :]

My hand hurts, I spilled coffee on it this morning :[ I was also falling asleep driving to work, both sucky :[

I’m starting on some pineapple right now…. they’re not THAT sweet but they’re juicy :] I haven’t been eating as much pineapple as I usually do.. I missed it.

Is it strange that I have no appetite for breakfast but I’m already daydreaming about what to cook for dinner? I didn’t get that much groceries this weekend because it’s already overstuffed with stuff my mom bought for her big girls luncheon this week. It’s her month to host. But I have lots of new grains and stuff to play with. Groats, millet.. I have a new back of beautiful delicious chewy black wild rice :D And new extra thick rolled oats… they’re lusciously chewy looking.. so much so, I might have oatmeal again for dinner :] Maybe with groats & millet mixed in…. I also need to finish off my brussel sprouts AND those ASPARAGUS that, once again, my mom bought for my dad and that I’ve been eating…

I’m gonna surf around for some cool ideas on what to cook tonite later on…

Ok, work time. Busy busy busy….

Quickie Lunch



I have a horrible stomachache :[ Bah! This always happens. I overindulge on weekends so I spent Mondays and Tuesdays recovering hahaha….. I need my tea…

edit @ 151pm
I still have a stomachache but I’m feeling chipper :] The closer it gets to going home the more excited I am thinking about what to cook tonite…. but if my stomachache keeps up it’ll be oats!!! OATS!!! But I’m excited about that too!!! Savory oats (or maybe sweet!!!)

I’m currently gnawing on this 1/2 of a Pomelo….

*gnaw gnaw gnaw… I missed Saturday’s premiere episode of Giada’s new show so I HAVE to make it for the only other airing of it today @ 430!!!! I LOVE her!!!

Just in case I’m busy working, I know I’m gonna be gnawing on THESE afterwards before I leave work:

13 Delicious Strawberries ♥

I’m so mad I left all this food I wanted to bring at work home. My BREAD I had made.. my Vietnamese snacks… *pulls hair out* lame. My butt hurts from sitting here all day long….

You know how when you’re not hungry.. but you eat anyways? Yeah… and it’s making me feel fat.

Baby Kiwis – So good and they’re only in season for a short period of time so get them at your local… umm.. probably organic food store asap! I get them from Whole Foods :]


For people who don’t know what they are, they look like olives, taste like kiwis and pop like grapes! No fuzz either :D So yea I pretty much finished the 6oz package (30 baby kiwis) off in like 2 seconds :]

I am the fruits loving guru/queen :D HAHA… I’ve eaten them all (except durian, gag). My next adventure you should look forward to (altho I’ve already tried it before but I haven’t blogged about it here) is the Monstera. I’ve had it a couple of times and it’s really good.. but somehow one appeared in the kitchen the other day (most likely mom) and I’m excited!!! I love weirdo fruits.

I was talking with Jim and totally just remembered that I polished off a box of Annie’s Fruity Bunnies Cereal Saturday nite for, um, dessert?!… with tons of Vanilla Hemp Milk!!!

*blush* Like LITERALLY the ENTIRE box….. I just thought I’d confess that…
