Whose Turn to Cook?
June 22, 2011

For the past two weeks Stephen, Julia and myself have been taking turns in the kitchen each night. Last week we indulged in home-made quesadillas, chicken fried rice, spicy chicken chili, Panang Curry, and tonight’s dinner menu is just as exciting ~ Spicy Peanut & Ginger Pork. Let’s just say our kitchen has been getting lots of love 🙂

Julia's kickin' quesadillas were UH-mazing 🙂

But on occasion, our kitchen is closed and we are out and about searching for new restaurants to try. Over the weekend we tried a new restaurant at the Jomtien Tower. Stephen and I had been curious about this one for awhile now. This panoramic rotating restaurant sits on the 52nd floor overlooking all of Pattaya and Jomtien.

The views were amazing – not to mention watching people fly past the window was pretty cool too!

~Back to the kitchen~

Julia and I made a chocolate mint cheesecake last night for another teacher’s birthday at school today.

And oh my GAWD….thank goodness we were forced to share or else we would have devoured it on the way to school – no joke! With so many birthdays and end of the year school celebrations…sweet treats are like second nature at this school. However, many treats end up looking quite different after the kids get a hold of them…hence this sweet & salty cupcake!

On that note…it’s time to eat! I’ll catch ya later! Hope you’re having a great week 🙂

 

Stop and Rewind
June 12, 2011

The past 2 weeks have gone by so fast – as it feels like we were just meeting Stephen’s dad and sister at the airport. Having been on the go pretty much non-stop, it’s definitely been a fun filled 2 weeks with lots of new experiences! Our many outings included trips to markets, zoos, restaurants, temples, an island day trip and not to mention a weekend in Bangkok. Ahem, and maybe one or two night clubs 😉 So needless to say my camera has been on picture overload 🙂

And we can’t forget about all the amazing FOOD over the past 2 weeks…I think Stephen, Julia and I have agreed it’s time to start getting our steps in 😉

Although we were sad to say goodbye to Stephen’s dad…we do have some exciting news! Julia will be staying with us the majority of the Summer and we’re so happy to have her!

And then there were three 🙂

It’s back to reality tomorrow ~ 3 more weeks of school and work left before our traveling begins! Hope you’re having a great weekend – stay dressed to dish!
