Catch Up!
May 17, 2011

Sorry for the week long delay ~ with feisty internet service, it’s hard to knock out a blog post. So that means it’s time to play catch up! Last week at school the Early Years put on an awesome Art Exhibition for parents, teachers, and fellow students. I was definitely one of their biggest fans, as they laughed at me snappin’ pics left and right…hey a girl’s gotta blog ūüėČ

The past week I have been on a bit of a health kick…why? Because I fall to temptation when a cake stares me in the face…which is pretty much every school day.

So every chance I get, I run down the closest fruit vendor…true story ūüôā

Just bought some fresh Pineapple and Cantalope...such a good deal!

Along with my fresh fruit, I’ve been munchin’ on veggie salads, cereal, and lots of water! The heat here is sometimes unbearable!

Stephen is not always on the same wave length as me when it comes to healthy eating…

But that’s okay…that just means I know I can sneak a small bite of whatever he’s having ūüėČ Hope your week is off to a great start! Stay dressed to dish!

It’s the Simple Things in Life :)

Mmmm...all I can say about this Fruit Danish!

¬†Saturdays we usually get plenty of walking in, so I had no problem devouring this delectable Fruit Danish at Mokador Cafe this morning. Stephen may not agree, but this has just surpassed my all time favorite breakfast Croissant at Mokador. You do not even realize how excited I was to¬†take the first bite! Made fresh from Mokador’s bakery, this glazed, Fruit Danish tasted like heaven. Our Saturdays have started to consist of lots of window shopping, obviously starting off the day at Mokador Cafe…their bold coffee definitely gets us moving.

Doing what I do best!

Don’t judge me on my attire. When I know ahead of time that we will be outside walking for a majority of the day, my focus is more on the food! Which means comfy clothes are a must, so let’s just say I decided that little flower in my hair made up for my¬†tank¬†and¬†Soffe shorts.¬†Besides let’s face it,¬†by the end of the day when our faces are dripping with sweat¬† glistening from the sun, I’m not thinking about fashion.

Trinket Shopping!

After a day in the sun, we have resorted to another night in,¬†everything dedicated to cooking, movies, & organizing our kitchen! Gosh I sound like Monica on the tv show Friends…she is a clean freak about her kitchen organization. Well seeing how I basically make up my bed before I even get out in the morning, I guess I have a little bit of “Monica” in me. ūüôā¬†I’m okay with it!

Tomato, Cucumber, & Dragonfruit Salad

 

Fettuccine, Cheese & Herbs

It was my turn to cook dinner tonight, so I fixed up a colorful fruit salad to go along with MORE PASTA. Yes we resort to pasta a majority of the time because it’s in our budget…creative thinking is a must so we don’t have too many repeats!¬†I used fettuccine noodles mixed in a cheese & herbs sauce (store bought but so good!)¬†adding basil on top. As for my salad, I¬†tossed in¬†the usual tomatoes and cucumbers, but also added dragonfruit¬†to the mix.¬†I welcome any pasta related ideas so please send them my way!

Dressed to Dish!

I know what you must be thinking…what the heck is she wearing?! Since I’ve been¬†in Thailand¬†I see Thai girls everywhere wearing these cotton thai pants. Today I bought some! As Stephen said when he first saw these on me, “Now there’s some authentic thai fashion!” Ha not sure how many times I will wear them out, but they are PERFECT for a cozy night in. These pants were the last in its color…I literally took these off the manaquin. My motto – No Bargain, No Buy! As you can see, I got a bargain.

After a wonderful Saturday I’m ready to call it a night. To check out other aspects of our stay here in Thailand I encourage you to check out Stephen’s blog as well! For those of you back home who are just now¬†waking up, have a wonderful Saturday and stay Dressed to Dish! ūüôā
