A Long Overdue Update

Wow…posts out here are just getting sparser and sparser huh? I still love blogging, but I guess my time has been consumed with other hobbies. I was just thinking about how it’s been a really long time since I wrote a personal blog about what’s up with me. To be honest…not much that’s too interesting. But I thought I would write down some stuff as a written account of what I’ve been doing lately so when I’m old and go back to read old posts I can see what I was like then.

So I think my life right now has just been consumed with food. Eating it, making it, buying it. I’m just so obsessed with it right now. Mind you, I am a HORRIBLE cook unlike my sisters and mother but I am trying really hard to learn. I am still in the beginning stages so for now I just like following recipes and try cooking new techniques. I am definitely not at the level yet where I make up my own recipes or tweak other recipes to make it better. Maybe one day.

I have also started baking more. I feel like every time I bake I learn so much and it’s so fun! I have a bad feeling that I am going to want one of those kitchenaid mixers soon. You know those huge ones that cost several hundred dollars. For now, I am content with the hand mixer my sister gifted me. But my arm sure gets tired especially when you try to get “egg whites to stiffen”. I have mostly been experimenting with cookies and cupcakes. But the other day I bought my first cake pan so I can make my first cake FROM SCRATCH! I think I am going to try this recipe for grown up bday cake (grownup because it has wine). I also want to try making a cheesecake. Not the normal american kind but the kinds that are more fluffy and airy. I think the Japanese make them like that? I seriously can’t wait!

Anyways, I could talk about cooking and the food I’m going to make all day but I won’t bore you guys anymore with that. If you want, you can check out my other blog (yes, another one ha ha) that is all about my obsession with food: eat snap love

My other interests right now include gardening (in theory) and photography. Gosh….I think I am turning into my older sister Quynh ha ha ha.

Boyrobot and I are still doing well and have been filling up our time with our usual hobbies: poker, shopping, movies. We’ve actually cut back on boardgames sadly but are always down for a game if anyone wants to play. We’ve replaced our show from Lost to Jersey Shore. I know…big step down ha ha. Doesn’t seem like there is much on tv nowadays though. Boyrobot spends a lot of time reading up on stocks and investing. While I spend a lot of time doing crossword puzzles and playing Hearts. Yes, crossword puzzles are pretty much my favorite thing right now and I do one every night before I go to bed.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot I also signed up for swimming lessons. They start next week. Maybe I will finally learn how to swim!

Upcoming trips include Vegas in April (canNOT wait!) and I really hope to visit Seattle this summer. But for once, no big trips. After barely being home last year I kind of welcome it though.

And that pretty much concludes what I am up to nowadays. Mental note: I should start taking more pictures of things I do and not just of food. I will try to share them on here when I remember!
