Sunday was a dashing day in the food department- new product discoveries, simplicities, and some custom “Asian street food”
Guess what Trader Joe’s sells now??
And guess what hybrid of two of my favourite things I also (FINALLY) found this weekend?
Most of the Greek yoghurt I consume is of the plain variety embellished by way of fruit and cinnamon; and if not plain I occasionally will have some Chobani or Oikos vanilla, however in terms to flavoured yogs, Chobani wins hands-down with their creative varieties (Pomegranate, Lemon, Cherry, Pineapple, Strawberry Banana, Peach, Blueberry, Strawberry, Raspberry, and now the king of fruits, MANGO!)
Verdict: The best, along with strawberry banana and pomegranate- what can I say, 2% yoghurt makes a much creamier and more delightful treat than the fat-free counterparts
Want a simple yet ridiculously delightful lunch? Have your mama make you THIS:
Tasty and vegetarian-suitable. Who else loves burnt bread as much as I do?
Pour le diner, my mama and I were together on our own; the father was away at the recording studio jamming on the Fender and doing whatever it is people do at recording studios and Nora was at the movies.
Alors, mama and I wanted something quick, healthy, and nearby
Where to then? Charlie Hong Kong of course!
Charlie Hong Kong is an organic Asian Street Food hole in the wall in downtown Mill Valley (which originated in Santa Cruz) where you choose a signature wok bowl or rice bowl and then top it off with your choice of protein; as usual we selected two dishes to share:
Not your usual Pad-Thai, but nevertheless delicious and fresh ingredients (and we had a tonne of noodles left over, which I assume made a fabulous late night snackaroo for the father)
They may have went a little overboard on the sauciness, but this was also delicious- I love bok choy so was happy to see it had such a prominent presence on the plate.
Conclusion: I really should come here more often! Their ingredients are fresh, the people that work there are friendly and efficient, and the place has a nice chilled out vibe and huge bottles of Sriracha if it’s not already spicy enough (which it wasn’t in my opinion)
Noodles or rice?
What’s the best new product you’ve tried?
What would you like to see more on my blog? Food posts, recipes, restaurant reviews, fashion, random ramblings, videos, any other ideas? All of you always have such wonderful input and I’d love to hear your feedback!
And another thing: I am beginning to think about switching to WordPress.org/Self-hosting but am as lost as a headless chicken on how to do that- any advice or host recommendations would be vairrrr much appreciated
