Christy is heading back to USA on Monday. Boo….. We went out for Japanese to celebrate. I’d never been to Uzuki Restuarant on Sukhumvit Soi 11 before. It was recommended by a friend as being quite vegan friendly and indeed it was. I am really new to Japanese cuisine and I have to say I am getting rather partial to it. The eggplant in miso sauce was outstanding. I also adore steamed edamame beans. While there is not the range of Chijuya, I’d go back just for the eggplant.
One of my delightful colleagues, Sam has two equally delightful teenaged girls. They will be heading off on to university in a couple of years, and Sam is keen to give them a few lessons in cooking so that they can prepare healthy, cheap and nutritious food so we arranged for them all to come to my house today to do some cooking. They do not have much experience in baking, so we decided to start with some delicious jam filled oat bran muffins and choc brownies. They did a fantastic job. Such a lovely afternoon. 🙂
Last night some friends came over to another friends’ house to celebrate my birthday with a lovely BBQ. Christy came over and helped with some of the dishes. She made a delicious tofu satay and some kebabs. I focussed on dessert as I was dying to use my new ice cream machine that Seb bought me for my birthday. I made ice cream sandwiches. It was awesome. 🙂
Today was so lovely. I felt like a ‘lady that lunches’. I started the day with a yoga class, then went and had a mani-pedi then headed over to Loving Hut before going for a massage. I have never been there before as it just seems so far! It took Christy and her TV premiere to get me to go. Christy and I pulled together a crew and we had a super lunch.
Some of our picnic crew!
