So, I'm going to make a resolution to regularly post and document my last 3 months in Southern California. I will try to take you guys around my frequent hangouts and the awesome things that goes on in Orange County. To make up for lost time, here are a few things that I have graphically documented recently.
Disneyland - the happiest place on earth!
I bought an annual pass at the beginning of last year. It was Michael's Christmas present for me. Yes, we totally, completely splurged for Christmas last year. Not so much this year. However, these were from December. Christmas is my favorite time to go to Disneyland. However, with my pass expiring in four days. I think this was the last time I'll be able to spend time in Disney.
94 days until I leave for Vietnam. I can't wait. Until next time (hopefully it will be soon), Happy Eating!

It's been quite since I've posted a recipe. Now that I started cooking regularly again. I thought I should share a recipe with the world. It's my dinner tonight. (The stuffed pork is slowly cooking in the oven. Yum!) To those that frequent my blog knows that I do not measure. So, all the measurements here are guess-timates. I cook like a homecook. I just throw ingredients together and hopes it comes out delicious. Whatever combination works well, I post them here.
Spinach Fettucini with Sautee Spinach and Mushroom
Spinach Fettucini - I used half a 12 oz bag
1 12oz bag of spinach
1 tray of mushrooms
1/2 - 1 cup of Vegetable stock
half onions - chopped
3 cloves of garlic - chopped and diced
1. heat up some olive oil
2. brown the garlic
3. turn down the heat to about medium and throw in the chopped onions.
4. wait for about 30sec to 1 min throw in the mushrooms.
5. sprinkle a little sugar and carmelized the mushrooms and the onions. (there's a little bit of timing right here) As the onions and the mushroom cooks boil the water. and cook the pasta
6. when the mushrooms and onions are nicely caramelized and browned throw in the spinach. When the spinach is about half way wilted, pour in the
7. when the spinach in nice and wilted, the pasta should be done, throw in the pasta. sprinkle with the cheese.
I also added a some finely chopped apples. I thought it would compliment the pork very well. Now, you're probably asking about the pork. Well, I bought pre-stuffed and pre-marinaded pork yesterday. All I did was popped it in the oven.
I can't wait for my husband to get home and chow down on this delicious dinner. Thanks for all the support.
As always, happy cooking!!!

Michael and I were making noodle soup the other day, and we found ourselves (again) without adequate bowls to enjoy our said noodle soup in. We have one medium size bowl between us ( the other one was for the cat's water). I kicked myself for forgetting to get bowls from my dad's place. Since our place is so small right now, I really don't want to store too much stuff. I like my space, but I guess it's what I have to do for now. This place after all is just a studio. To think, the other studio that was offered to us was even smaller than this one (mental shudders).
This just makes me dream of the pantry cabinet for the kitchen I could buy or wish to have someday. But, that is a long time away. Now, all I have to look forward to is a to cook in a tight space and do my laundry in cheap vessel sinks to save money. Yes, I do laundry by hands because the cost of the laundry room is too high.
Until next time, Happy Cooking!

Thanks for the article from Robin Woodard
My wife and I got some cabletvadvisor.com packages a while back and to be honest, we didn’t really watch much TV with it at first. Mostly because our tastes in shows are really different but I finally figured out what’s going to bring us together – college football! It’s starting super soon and since she and I both went to college together we really like to watch the Golden Bears beat up on all the other teams in the conference every Saturday. She was kind enough to let me get the huge plasma when we bought the house so I think I’m going to throw one or two football parties to have some buds over and drink beer and watch games all day and I know she’s going to be totally there, too! That’s part of the reason I love my wife – I mean, how many pretty girls do you know that drink beer and watch football with the best of them? That’s why she’s a real keeper in my eyes and in everyone else’s!

I'm glad that his cooking abilities had improved, but now I fear I have a competitor. My skills weren't that great to begin with.
