day 2070 – tsujiri extravaganza

i said i’d treat myself to tsujiri once i land my roundoff backtuck which i did. it’s finally my turn to try out the hyped tsujiri matcha dessert. the rumoured lineup is real and if you don’t go in the middle of the day for the opening rush, there’s no chance of getting their cakes. can’t believe there’s so much hype for this place even after a month of its grand opening. the foodies i went with got multiple cakes and drinks, but i settled with a double fromage matcha cake

day 2069 – cake ceremony

rushed home to get the cake ceremony done otherwise my mom will be pissed that the cake is still sitting in the fridge. i didn’t really understand why we bought the cake so far in advance when it should technically be done on wednesday. the dessert didn’t fit too well in my diet though the mango mousse is not the only thing that’s wrecking my diet. time really does fly and we’re already until the fourth month of the year and it’ll be my birthday in a month’s time

day 1874 – poke master

improvised poke bowl for family dinner limited to the ingredients readily available in the fridge. the main ingredients were salmon sashimi, beets corn, cilantro and some wasabi for the zing. it was really light, refreshing yet flavourful. i think my newfound favourite vegetable to be beets. i’ll try making more funky poke bowls next time and experiment with different ingredients

day 1799 – blueberry banana

my investment in a portable blender is slowly paying its bills. going for the luxurious two flavoured smoothie of blueberry banana instead of my go-to plain banana option. it was so tasty i drank it really fast, so fast that i hadn’t realized i left out my recovery. i’ve been feeling a bloat which isn’t sitting too well in my stomach; hopefully some digestive enzymes will solve the problem

day 1429 – cherry imports

i’m happy but not surprised when i saw giant boxes in my kitchen. this is the time of the year when my dad orders ten pounds of cherries from coworker who owns a farm in okanagan. normally i would eat cherries as meal replacements, but it as big and sweet as other years since the peak season is delayed this year. it will get finished nonetheless and then he’ll order another batch

day 1165 – diy sushi

image

our thanksgiving longweekend started off adventurous. besides my coaching duties, much of our day was spent venturing at tsawwassen mills, shopping and trying to be iron chefs. did my share of window shopping at the new outlet in the morning; the lineup and hype hasn’t decreased one bit. night time was spent in the kitchen with our best attempt to make sushi. our final product looked oddly shaped and very unproportional, but it tasted a lot better than it looked

day 828 – munch time

prepared my very own salmon sashimi salad today made with lettuce, salmon sashimi, tomatoes and avocado. a meal i was looking forward to all day, maybe that explains why i was so hungry this morning. tasted yummy except next time i would pair it with a different dressing to go along with the sashimi. don’t worry, i am not going vegetarian, i don’t think i ever can because i still love my meat and fish
