THE SEA OF PURPLE

I felt like something vibrant today,

so I reached out for the purples in my trusty coastal scents palette.

Splash on some purples, because it’s just such a fun color!

I love it, I love it, I love it!

WHITE FEBRUARY

It was not a typical day in the city of Atlanta and definitely not in this time of year. Sheets of snow covered the cars like icing on a cake. Stepping out, snow coated trees surrounded us like a scene from some Winter Wonderland.  Results of global warming I guess. I don’t know if I should be scared for mother earth’s impending demise or happily basking in its beauty but regardless, I can’t help but feel like a little kid again. Snowflakes make me loopy. We also took a drive downtown just out of curiosity.

And I had a fight with my boyfriend - a snowball fight.
That's me making ammo and just to put it out there, I won.

Oh, and here's to the debut of my snow bunny.
I shall name it Potatoe, after the vegetable.

It was a pretty perfect day.

BRAIDS OF WHIMSY

I have been itching to braid my hair recently for some weird, unknown reason. I say this because I prefer my hair to be relatively fuss free: wash, blow dry and if I am lucky, I use a comb but more often than not, I just use my God given fingers. Yes, I am that lazy. But, since my vanity has soared to unknown heights, what better way to embellish a messy bun than with a pretty braid. Ooh la la.

STEAMED FISH

These past few days have been exciting, “culinary-ly” speaking. I have seriously been working on my Chinese cooking skills. Yeeeaa-eh. If only I can seriously work on my Chinese language instead. Pft. So, the item on the menu today was steamed fish.

Ingredients:

  • One catfish fillet
  • Soy sauce
  • Rice wine
  • Sesame oil
  • Salt
  • Sugar
  • White pepper
  • Minced ginger
  • Olive oil
  • Minced garlic

Procedure:

  1. Marinate the fillet with some salt and sugar
  2. Mix together some soy sauce, a dash of rice wine, a few drops of sesame oil and white pepper.
  3. Adjust the sauce accordingly depending on the size of your fish and your taste preferences.
  4. Pour over the fish into the steaming dish and place the minced garlic on the surface of the fillet.
  5. Then, place the dish into the steamer (I used an electric steamer) and set it to 8-10 minutes.
  6. Once it is done, fry some garlic in about one tbsp of oil and pour it onto the fish for extra flavor.
