Meal prep saturday: cheesecake and a messy cheesy cauliflower casserole

Recipe 1-cauliflower with carne molida and oaxaca cheese

Recipe#2 – my first ever cheesecake

Mistakes: (hubby tells me i always watch cooking videos but end up fucking up because of my innate need to experiment, a quality that I got from my mother.)

Overdid the crust using an entire 1/2 quarter cup of butter, should have used only 3 tablespoons.

Overdid the eggs too, used 3 instead of just 2.

After it was out it tasted like flan but now that its refrigerated, it turned out fuckin delicious.

Slow saturday suman

Reason for making this is cos im so annoyed at how overpriced they sell for at the Filipino bakery. A pair of suman sells for 2.50 as opposed to less then 10 bucks all in all to buy the ingredients.

What I used:

Step 3: enjoy it warm and steamy after its cooked for an hour. My mothers creation is still the best

My first time to make my native Philippine snack!

Its a rootcrop sweetened with raw cane sugar and grated coconut mixed altogether, wrapped in banana leaves and steamed for 45 mins. My mother makes the best suman ever.

Step 1- combine all this madness in a wide bowl add sugar to your liking
Step 2: The tedious part is wrapping each handful to the banana leaf.

31/100 lemonades: no thursday thaiĀ 

Cranky as fuck i wanted to eat out as soon as we got off work. Was silently seething when hubby didnt make a right turn to my fave thai place.  

Then it dawned on me that the positives outweigh the unhealthy thinking in my head:

1. Saved bout 50 bucks from not eating out

2. Nourishing and controlled food at home

3. Cooking still is the best.

Yeah its way better.

Lesson learned today: get a smaller avocado next time

Breakfast smoothie today was a big ass ripe avocado with a cup of baby spinach and blueberries. Ninja had a little trouble blending it for several reasons

1. Not enough liquid (sorry machine)

2. Shouldve chosen the smaller cup for this. 

Anyway, the output was still a beautiful creamy dream of REAL avocado and greens. You cant compete that in thosr overly sweetened ones bought at a boba shop for about 4-5 bucks a pop. What a beautiful meal
