…cuz they’re the most relaxing day of the week for me!
I wake up according to my biologic clock and leisurely made my breakfast. This weekend, I imagined “Yorkshire Pudding muffins” that is easy to make like the original recipe, but also healthy calorie-wise. Instead of the rule of 1/3’s I added slightly more flour, i.e. requiring 1/2 cup organic flour, 1/4 cup 1% milk, and 1/4 cup egg (about 1 large egg), 1 tsp of Splenda, 1 pump Starbucks sugar-free vanilla syrup, and a pinch of baking soda. Mix everything up, lightly oil spray the muffin tray, and bake for 25 mins at 375 F. Recipe makes 6, and is about 50 calories each. The centre is mainly hollow and enjoy with your favourite yoghurt and fruits for a breakfast version of the classic Yorkshire Pudding!
This is also similar to a batter that I use to make good French crêpes!
Then I went out to do more shopping of course at J Crew: 2 pairs of trouser pants, floral top, shorts, and costume necklace. Here a group shot of all my recent acquisitions at Nordstrom, Sephora, and new shoes… You might notice something that I haven’t done a reveal yet in the pic below, but don’t worry, I’m very excited to post them up real soon! hehe
I packed my bags and headed for Montreal, where I finally got to check out my brand spankin’ new bathroom! I don’t know about the rest of you, but a nice bathroom is essential since I spend like a third of my life at home here lol. I like a large granite counter top to have lots of space for my cosmetics and skincare products, as well as room to place my clothes when I head into the shower. I really don’t like putting my new clothes on the toilet lid…
Then off to dinner we went at Aikawa! This is a very good sushi restaurant, prices are fairly expensive, but not too bad considering the excellent service and quality of food. You get some very original dishes here and I love their octopus-seaweed salad which isn’t the typical seaweed that you get at most places, but rather 5 different exotic species of kelp. The appetizer also contains mangos, cucumbers, and imitation crab! YUM!!!
The main sushi dish that I ordered was called “Hero” and has crab, tuna, roe, some other fish, asparagus, cucumbers, asian mushrooms, all wrapped in rice and seaweed. Lastly, add some tempura on the outside in a light batter and gently deep fried, with spicy mayo sauce on the side, finished with some fresh fruits, and a lovely orchid! I’m a sucker for pretty things 😀
Here’s me ready to devour everything haha

Then at the end of the day, there’s nothing like cuddling up with my baby to enjoy a movie before bed! Thanks for letting me share and hope you all had a wonderful weekend 😀
