My little girl is really growing up very fast. She will be turning 4 this Friday. It seems like it was only yesterday that she was a newborn.

Tiger girl is less chubby now and has lost most of her baby fat at this age.  This few days she is really very vocal and can express herself very well.  She will let you know very explicitly her likes and dislikes.

She loves playing in the park and the slide and swing are her favourite.  We are lucky that there are many playgrounds near our house so she can have her pick of which she would like to play at.

Tiger girl is still attracted to these kiddy rides that we see when we go out and would ask for a ride. I normally allow her to have a ride if we see $0.20 machines like the one above.

Swimming is one of her favourite  activities now and every weekend she would eagerly get ready for her swimming lesson.  Since starting swim lesson this January her water confidence has increased by leaps and bounds. She can now swim a short distance underwater without assistance and is learning freestyle at the moment.

Happy birthday princess!!

From My Kitchen

A weekday dinner
A weekday dinner- Egg sandwich, carrot soup and baked cheese zucchini salad.  Fresh watermelon juice to accompany. 

A few weeks ago I showcased the homemade noodles which I have been making at home. Today let me show you the other meals that I’ve made for the kids for dinner.

We have been cutting down the amount of meat that we serve at home and give more freshly made juices and soups to the kids.

I love colorful salads. It really perks up my day seeing colorful dishes being served at meal time.

Sometimes when I am looking to eat something juicy I would make an orange salad and pair it with slices of breaded chicken so that I get a balanced meal.

The boys love eating garlic bread and I try to make it for them once a fortnight.   I normally  make freshly blended soup for them for dinner as it would ensure that they get enough vegetables.

I baked this Oreo Cheesecake for a friend of mine last week. She was finally out of confinement after the birth of her #2 girl and was craving for some cake.   It has been a while since I made a cheesecake and I was glad that she loved it.

What have you been cooking/baking in your kitchen lately?
