One lazy snowy Saturday: Winnie Cooks

one lazy snowy sat
Don't worry - this is about all the snow you'll get to see in this blog post this weekend. I ventured outside for about a minute today and spent most of the day indoors and judging from these photos below, getting ready to hibernate! I contemplated against posting yet another food post after the cakey one before but what the heck, here we go again! 
Breakfast in bed
breakfast in bed
This was brunch this morning, I really wanted toast but we were out of bread and crumpets were the only thing to hand. Peanut butter, bananas and crumpets is a yummy but a super rich combination. Completely stuffed! 
Noodles ingredients
Above we have earlier's dinner! I made do with some of the ingredients in the house and went for Udon noodles with a clear spicy broth (flavoured with soya sauce and chilli oil), fresh pak choi, eggs and spam. Spam is a funny one because most people seem to hate the idea of the stuff but in Chinese families, 'Mmm chan yuk' is pretty much a staple in our cupboards. I love it especially when it's fried with eggs!
Noodles
Candle teacup
Lastly, just as I post this - Earth hour has just finished! It's fascinating seeing iconic landmarks and skylines 'switch off' for an hour and it definitely makes you think about energy consumption and sustainability. I spent the majority of the hour sat in the dark writing this post and listening to McFly's live gig...

  13. Oh god, I haven't had crumpets in years & never thought to have them sweet like this, I always go for plain butter, must try that out! I've been mostly wrapped up indoors too, surely we're about due just a little sun by now... it is almost April?! *sigh*

    where to start commenting? I love the typography and graphic layout of the first pic bahaha. As you already know I shake my fist at you each time I see your handwriting.
    I hate you because you have snow and in HK it's 27 degrees and humid. But right now I'm in some mountain in Taichung reading your post. :P
    And I love noodles with spam or spam and egg sandwich... :P
