Great friends and Hot buns!

Oh my, where do my weekends go? I've been so busy decorating my Sunday School Class for my new students, and putting together lesson plans, trying to find new ways be creative and make the classroom a fun and enjoyable learning atmosphere without losing touch of what's important. It's been fun, challenging, overwhelming, and joyous. I had my first day of teaching my new students this past Sunday, and I must say... it was quite calm and peaceful, and they were excited to see the new classroom. I'll post some pictures up of some cool DIY classroom projects in a later post. 

For now I will just post another subject that makes me joyous; FOOD! Yes, food. I spent the day with some of my girlfriends on Saturday, and we made some hot buns otherwise known as "Hum Bao Steamed Buns" They were light, fluffy, moist and full of goodness. Please forgive me as I can't muster the energy to type out the reciepe and ingredients; perhaps when I have a moment to breathe and a day to relax; I will post it up in the future. As for now, I'll just post up a picture. That's the best I can do =(

After Church on Sunday, my best friend, her little sister, and my daughter and I went out for dinner. We had a grand time sharing laughs, and the kiddos had a great time. I don't know what they put in that apple juice, but the girls sure were extra giggly all the way home. 

They were a little skimpy on the fries, but the steak was good and more fries would have been bad for me anyways.

My daughter didn't want to be in the picture, but she gave a thumbs up for her approval of her plate of food.

What makes you joyous?

I love starting out my week refreshed and happy. I hope you all have a wonderful week as well!


  1. Yum!! I love hum baos esp homemade! My mom makes them once in a while and it's soo good. :) I've tried before with her and it's very time consuming. -_- Maybe I'll need to try again...

    Thanks for the tip on the flash freeze for the lumpias! I never thought about that. I might have to try them out and see how soggy they get and next time do the flash freezing first. :)

    Sounds like you had a great weekend! Of course food is the best! haha..

    1. I agree, they are very time consuming and steaming them on a hot day probably wasn't the best idea, but they were scrumptious so that made up for the hard work and sweat =D

      And you're welcome! I'll have to try your recipe in the near future.

  2. hot buns are sooooo yummy! ohhh i hope you have plans for the best with the kids you're teaching. i found it hard for me to teach before >.<

    1. Indeed they are! And thank you; yes it can be very challenging teaching children, I have my hair pulling; screaming on the inside moments, but it's also very rewarding =)
