Once a parent, always a parent =D

Once a parent, always a parent! So true. The other week, my dad was so sweet to make a pan of hamburger-macaroni with Alfredo sauce, topped with three different cheeses (Swiss, American, and Parmesan) to take back to my house. It was so good! I always enjoy my dad’s cooking.

I prepared a side dish of fresh green beans to go with the mac and cheese. I love my beans. I cooked it with balsamic vinegar and roasted garlic olive oil. Seasoned with pepper and garlic salt. Yum!

Home-cooked meals are the best!! Have a great rest of the week. It’s almost Friday!!! Yay!

This nishime is where it’s at!

Happy Sunday and Presidents’ Day weekend! 

My auntie’s friend made homemade nishime, or Japanese vegetable stew. It was delicious! Tasted very similar to my grandmother’s. She used to make this dish during New Year’s. Because she didn’t leave a recipe, we now order nishime from Zippy’s, which is actually pretty delicious. 
I found a recipe online and I think I’ll try making it one day and see how it turns out. My grandma made so many great Japanese dishes, but she didn’t leave any recipes. It was all stored in her head. Now that’s a brilliant skill of a true chef! Haha!
