My weekend post is a bit late because of my bout with sun poisoning. I’m much better now but I still have a few remaining battle scars. Needless to say, this is how I felt about the flurry of weekend events because of it:
When you’re ill, your body just doesn’t want to cooperate and of course when it rains, it pours and where I live, that’s also been quite literal. I had to wade home the other day (just kidding).
Poor plants, most of ours are suffering from water stress and then these little boogers were attacking them too
But we captured a harvest nonetheless.
And look what I found in the backyard!
I feel that when I’m not feeling great, food always provides a great pick me up.
A progressive dinner night with roasted quail wrap tapas at one spot (even featuring gochujang ftw)!
roti canai at another spot,
with spicy yellow tail rolls
and rendang daging
This weekend also marked my bff’s birthday. Happy birthday, “Treasure!”
A birthday menu of pesto chicken, garlic basil roast, potato casserole, creamed corn, grilled squash (from the garden), and roasted tomato (from the garden, too) mozzarella, and basil crostini with a tuxedo birthday cake for dessert.. Unfortunately, I think I may have hit my basil plant too hard. Not pictured were also pomegranate basil italian cream sodas. Poor naked basil.
After food, a quite happy Squishy Monster.
After a week of migraines, unbearable itchiness, and dizziness, I have a million and a half things to smile about.
In the words of this fella,
Your all smiles Squishy Monster ^.~
