Instead of focusing on the negative (e.g. resuming my nightshift workweek tonight), I’m gonna show you some items that made me grin ear to ear when I received them in the mail.

In the morning, the postman delivered a big parcel of our shirts (use coupon code: GOLDENFALL from now until 10/11/11/ to save $10 on orders over $50 that include a long-sleeve shirt)…


…and a few complimentary bottles of Red Boat fish sauce!


I can’t wait to try this bottle of chef’s grade 50N!


Don’t be jealous! I’ll be sharing some 40 N bottles with you guys very soon.

For breakfast, I baked a frittata with shallots, spinach, mushrooms, and San Marzano tomatoes.


I split it with my hubby and topped each half with sliced avocado.


For lunch, I fried another 4505 Meats Portuguese linguica and ate it with a simple tomato and lettuce salad.


After I picked up Big-O from school, we came home and I took a short nap.

I woke up at 5:00 p.m. and started making dinner in a hurry. The clock was ticking because I was motoring to my food writing class BEFORE heading in to the hospital.

Luckily, my mom had dunked a couple packets of pre-cooked goat loin chops into the SousVide Supreme earlier, so I just had to torch them and make some veggies.

I pureed a batch of carrot & parsnip puree with my stick blender


…and stir-fried spigarello and bacon.


Here’s what I intended to eat for dinner…


…but I was running late for my class. I packed my meal to go, downed a strong cup of espresso, and drove to school.

For three hours I listened with rapt attention to Elise Bauer of Simply Recipes lecture about how to blog like a pro. Dude, she bought a new house with her earnings! She’s so my Yoda.

About Michelle Tam

Hello! My name is Michelle Tam, and I love to eat. I think about food all the time. It borders on obsession. I’ve always loved the sights and smells of the kitchen. My mother was (and is) an excellent cook, and as a kid, I was her little shadow as she prepared supper each night. From her, I gained a deep, abiding love for magically transforming pantry items into mouth-watering family meals.
