OK, I'll admit it. I'm a little bit addicted to sewing at the moment. Although I don't always have the time to sew something, I'm constantly thinking about my next project. As you can tell, this blog has become somewhat of a "show and tell" stage for both mine and GG's sewing projects and if this keeps up, I'm going to have to add SEWING to the blog header somewhere. But for now, food still remains as its primary focus.

Just 8 weeks ago, GG and I were newbies to sewing and what a long way we've come thanks to our wonderful sewing teacher, Regina. Today marked the end of our workshop and we celebrated with -- what else -- food of course!
I originally wanted to make my usual chinese style pork wontons but GG said she would be bringing pasta so I thought, why not make an Italian wonton? Because I was pressed for time, I didn't get a chance to make a dipping sauce but next time, I'll definitely make some type of sweet and tangy balsamic vinegar-ish sauce to go with it. Still, I think they turned out pretty good.

I became a subscriber of Real Simple magazine a few months ago through my daughter's school fundraiser (as they were selling magazine subscriptions) and I must say, I have really become a fan of the magazine. It covers the fundamentals of the hectic, multi-tasking lifestyle of the modern day woman by featuring articles ranging from home organization to fashion to cooking and everything in between. One of my favorite sections is their quick recipe guide where they take an ingredient (chicken thighs in this case) and give you a rundown of how to prepare it in a multitude of ways. I have tried a few of their easy, weeknight recipes and this one now ranks as one of my favorites.

Like I said in my previous post, Veggie Girl and I recently started sewing. While we have not yet learned how to make a dress in class, I ventured out and decided to follow a sewing pattern on my own.

Hello everyone! I've been away from cooking for a while, and it's because Veggie Girl and I recently started taking sewing classes. I got so excited with this new adventure that I could have bought a Jo-Ann's store for myself. Gladly, I came back to my senses and quickly realized that I don't need to buy everything, when I could make one myself.

I recently jumped on the internet TV bandwagon and finally bought a Roku after having considered it for months. This has enabled me to stream lots of shows from Hulu and one of the first shows I watched was the Korean drama, Boys Over Flowers.
