I am back to the normal posting cycle and most importantly, the comfort of my home.
Let’s just say that I am just very happy to be home, so much so that I was practically lying there on my bed and couch for the whole weekend–doing nothing and consuming only Indomie instant noodles but still feeling utterly happy.
Happiness lies in the fact that I can just relax and sleep on my own bed, under my own roof, and be with my LK…it’s a bliss.
Anyway, I am also glad that I didn’t have to make something just for the sake of creating new content for my blog; I have quite a few recipes saved in my draft–dishes that I’d made prior to my recent trips but haven’t had a chance to post, for example, this luscious looking tropical fruit salad…
If you recall, I made some jerk chicken skewers with mandarin oranges salsa, so this fruit salad was the leftover result of that post.
I tossed in baby shrimps, a mango, topped the fruit salad with toasted coconut and got a healthy and light meal.
This is especially refreshing for those in Southern California now because of the heat wave, so here is the recipe to share with you.
