Lately I’ve been so busy that I haven’t really had time to cook. My weekdays are hectic. After work, I have a full plate of things to do, and my weekends are packed with social activities.
In the past 2 weeks, I haven’t had much alone time (other than when I’m working on Swatch And Learn), but I actually am enjoying this super-busy schedule.
Unfortunately, because I haven’t been able to cook, I’ve resorted to buying takeout food a lot.
Normally I crave Indian or Italian food, but recently I’ve had huge food cravings for sushi and dim sum!
Haha, so for today’s Smorgasbord Sundays post, I’m just going to show you some of the things that I’ve been wolfing down.
What have you been craving lately?
These were some complimentary chicken spring rolls that came with my order. I’m not sure exactly what kind of sauce it was, but it was sweet and somewhat plummy.
Har gow (shrimp dumplings) are one of my favourite dim sum dishes. I like to eat them with a little bit of hot sauce. (I got 2 orders of this, and I ate all 8 in less than a minute. *Oink oink*)
They call this a dragon roll. It has avocado, shrimp, and fish eggs. I’m not big on fish eggs. Just the thought of them makes me feel nasty…but I ate them. They don’t taste gross, but psychologically, I don’t like eating them.
This reminds me that I need to roll my own sushi sometime. I used to do it all the time (it’s very easy), but these days, it seems like I’m racing against the clock!
This is a spring-rolls platter featuring chicken spring rolls, shrimp spring rolls, a light one with veggies, and a mango salad. I love the mango salads because I rarely have them. They’re so fresh! Haha, but because of the onions, you really need to chew some gum or brush your teeth afterwards! Phew!
Anyway, so those were just a few things I ate. I also had some miso soup, but didn’t photograph it because it didn’t look pretty.
And, just in case you’re wondering, I ate all of this for 2 meals. Mmm! So good, especially when you have a hankering for it.
