amazing how satisfying & comforting ramen can be on a cold, dreary day.
m cooked this for me while i fed the baby - customized with greens, shrimp dumplings, eggs, mushroom. soooo good.

this photo may look weird but it represents the best mac 'n cheese ever!
m made this huge bowl of mac 'n cheese with peas, corn kernels, toasted walnuts, broccoli and cauliflower, topped with fresh tomatoes and herbs - may sound strange but the texture and flavor balance and contrast with all the veggies is unbeatable.

another trader joe's convenience - toaster silver dollar pancakes and waffles!
i love silver dollar pancakes (more crisp edges, the better) and i do love breakfast food.
over-easy eggs, sausages, and silver dollar pancakes with maple syrup and good coffee. my favorite!!

one of our recent favorite meals - steak from trader joe's and some kind of vegetable dish.
since pregnancy/baby, we wanted to up the iron and protein intake to keep up with the energy expenditure and general health, we've been getting precooked meats from trader joe's, as we'd itherwise be eating vegetarian diet if we only cooked at home.
this time, sirloin steak with baby broccoli & veggies stir fry. so satisfying!

our first meal eating out since baby at castro's!
got to catch their breakfast special, since we're up so early - i got huevos rancheros, 
which looked very different than other ones i've gotten before, but really good nonetheless.
m got his usual beef burrito, which was still good.
first meal out was a success!

we are so lucky to have such sweet friends - audrey brought us this pumpkin soup with rosted pumpkin seeds. we put our garnish but the pumpkin seeds were the best one of them!!
thank you, audrey - it was so good (and gone in no time), and i can't wait to try the scones she brought us as well.
