Happy Friday!

You know the feeling when you don’t know what day it is?  It happens when I’m not working.  It’s Friday already!  Yay. Spending time with M and the kids is what I look forward to.  

Tonight, I was home with all three kids for dinner and bedtime. (M went to a coworkers retirement dinner party.) It is a challenge but not impossible. Now that W is walking, she tries to keep up with Z and V.  They were playing ball and W was in it, laughing and giggling with them. 

When it was time for W to get ready for bed, I let the other two have some tech/tv time. I came back down in time for them to have dessert.  We managed to get ready and read two books before W woke up. I had to bring in W to their room while singing to them so that everyone would be happy. 

I quickly went downstairs to finish making mochi.  This weekend, we’re having a play date and dinner with friends and on Sunday, a send-off get-together for my little sis and her bf.  They’re off to London on Tuesday. They will be sadly missed. 

We’re having a Buddha Bowl Buffet on Sunday for lunch.  I’m so excited as the table will be covered with all these colourful and fresh ingredients. I’ve prepared two vegan and gluten-free desserts.  

The first one is Chocolate Coconut Cashew Bars. I tried them and it’s delicious.The second one is a twix copycat – VGF version.  Here’s the link if you would like to give it a try as well.  

I also made mochi with red bean and black sesame paste. 

Since we are on the topic of food, I was at the public library the other day and came across an awesome book. I love it as the fairy tales are followed by a recipe.  Z loves the stories even though there aren’t a lot of pictures.  V is not as patient but will listen.  

In the book is a recipe for Steam Buns. So I made half a batch. Here’s how they look before and after steaming. 

What are you cooking this weekend?
