I’ve been playing around with my new bamboo steamer (bridal shower present ) And I’ve learned how to make sticky rice! I followed the recipe here for the mango sticky rice.
Mango Sticky Rice Success!
After I figured out the sticky rice I made some slow cooked pulled pork, which I cooked with palm sugar, vinegar, five spice, ginger, garlic, and chicken broth. And I served it with sticky rice and roasted zucchini. Amazing!
Oh yeah homemade BBQ sauce. Gluten Free and Soy Free BBQ isn’t the easiest to find. I simmered organic ketchup, brown sugar, rice vinegar, water, ground ginger, five spice, and garlic on the stove for 30 minutes and it is pretty amazing!
Still not a pro yet, but getting closer! I think next time I will try soaking the rice overnight, I lack patience.
I’m sad the weekend is over, I need more relaxing weekends like this more often! Next weekend is Coachella though so I am super excited! Yippee!
It’s ALIVEEEEEEEE. I am so lucky to even have such an awesome garden growing already in March! I thought it would be great to update on all the plants since I am so excited about them. After a few weeks of wonky weather, 90 degrees one day 60 the next, my squash seeds have finally been sprouting!

So far lots of progress! We spent quite a few hours in our yard today, fingers crossed in a couple months we will be harvesting veggies!
Happy Passover tomorrow night for those celebrating!
So after living without our dining room table for 2 months it is finally finished! We finished it a couple weeks ago, but I haven’t had a chance to post it. Here are the before pictures
The table was light wood and blue painted bottom.
We painted the legs yellow, stained the top, and reupholstered the chairs. And I love it! I keep catching myself staring at it. Unfortunately I still don’t want to attempt any projects like this in the near future. It took hours and hours and I want to thank anyone who helped out! Lots of friends were put to work to get these things sanded and it was unbelievably hard. Thank You guys!
I should have a house and garden update soon! Just have to take more pictures
