Today was a big day, Kiki learned how to give a kiss. Well, her version of giving a kiss is to come to you and lean her lips onto yours. It’s the best kiss I have ever gotten. There is so much sweetness and love in her kiss. I think I love it even more because she could be playing on the floor, and will get up walk to where ever I am pucker up her lips and lean into me or if you ask her to come and give you a kiss she just leans over and that’s a kiss. She also loves to give kisses to the sous-chef and her bears. So much love to be shared. What’s even cutter is when I kiss her good night on top of her head she moves her head and wants me to kiss her face – ah to be able to bottle up these little moments!
But I was able to capture a delicious dinner the chef made tonight. We actually had this stir-fry couple of weeks ago, but it was so good that I couldn’t wait to have it again. So much flavor packed in this meal – spicy, crunchy and savory!
Since I don’t actually cook it’s always nice to hear from the chef if I have picked the right recipes. The recipe might look good to me, but since I am not familiar with the process it’s kind of hard to tell the degree of difficulty or if it all makes sense or the timing or anything else. So any time the chef has a comment about the recipe I always find it helpful in understanding the type of recipes I should be looking for. One compliment that the chef gave to the recipe tonight is that the ingredients are listed in the order they appear in the recipe so it’s easy to follow it. Of course, it’s a simple recipe too – 5 major ingredients – easy peasy and perfect for a work night, or so says the chef. You are really looking at 20 minutes tops and the flavor is fantastic.
My back is still hurting and my tooth is no better so I am taking it easy and spending the evening with my DVR. Despite being it summer, there is some good TV going on – Political Animals, Newsroom, Weeds – have you seen any of it?
