SMONDAY – “The moment when Sunday stops feeling like a Sunday and the anxiety of Monday kicks in.”
I am currently on my last lap of my pregnancy and I feel like the day’s long and the night’s short. I fell asleep at 3PM, wide awake at 3AM. Dear anyone…. help me.
I have been caving inside the house and do a lot of chores and cleaning for the pre-arrival of the baby. The other thing I enjoy doing these days is baking. I and Jared spent most of our day time in the kitchen together to bake some goodies. Using some left overs on the fridge. Because, really….around these times, I have little energy to do big groceries and cook big meal. SO….WHY NOT occupied those left overs aye. Today I’ll be sharing 2 of our favourites left over recipes in the house. It is full packed of goodness and nutrients. Even though, it’s majorly made out of left over. Ha.
Most importantly, it is SO easy to cook. Throw them into the oven and voila. You have it!!
