Sugar, spice, and a pinch of GLAM

Winter 2015

Hello, dolls!! How’s your July so far? Mine’s been surreal. I can’t believe that after 14 months, our family is complete again. I’ve always imagined what it would be like to live with my family here in the US, and now it’s finally happening — we are living the dream. Having my family here means being surrounded with food all.the.time. The best part of being with them here is eating together. Geez how I missed that! I wake up with the smell of Mama’s garlic fried rice, and then we all gather at the dining table to talk about what we will eat for lunch, plan our day and go on an adventure, then we all sit down again to have dinner (if we’re lucky, we get to have dessert before we go to bed).

I would sometimes think about how life was for A and I before. We spent most of our time at work, go on adventures during our days off, and make sure we get to cook together at home.

One of my favorite dishes that we cooked at home.

Seared Sesame Crusted Tuna with Bok Choy, Chinese Noodles, and Soy-Ginger Sauce

Needless to say, we were both pleased with how the dish turned out.

We saw rock sugar at the Asian Store, one of the ingredients in making authentic beef noodle soup.

We get really excited when we find unique ingredients when grocery shopping!
