I hope everyone is having a great weekend! As we approach the end of October, I’m taking a moment to sharing some food and non-food happenings my life.
Scenes from my garden
At the end of September, we harvested the last of the fruits from my garden.
This year, we had a good amount of wax apples but many of them peaked too early. The ones that made it to September were definitely the biggest and the sweetest. They remind me so much of the ones I eat when I’m in Taiwan.
This year was the best year yet for my fig tree which is now about five years old. The previous years, we’ve had a few dozen figs but this year the tree produced nearly 200 figs and most of them were gigantic. To give you some perspective, I wasn’t able to fit more than 1 1/2 in the palm of my hand. It’s the first year I haven’t had to buy any figs from the markets.
I added them to my yogurt every morning for breakfast. I’m sad that I won’t have anymore now until next year.
We visited Austin for the first time. It was a short weekend trip and our main goal was to eat BBQ and we did a lot of that! I shared one post here and I will share more soon.
- I recently purchased this pile-lined hoodie*from Uniqlo. I love how soft it feels on the inside!
- My Beauty Diary face masks*-This is my favorite brand of face masks. A friend gifted some to me last year and I’ve been using them ever since. I started with the variety pack and then bought more boxes of the ones I liked the best.

Favorite Bites from October
Garlic green beans and edamame mash from Nom Nom Bento
I’m considering making these as side dishes for Thanksgiving this year. We’ve been to Nom Nom Bento three times in one month because we can’t get enough of the beans and edamame mash.
Rainbow Latte from S3 Coffee Bar
How pretty is this latte? I stared at it for the longest time because I couldn’t bring myself to ruin the art. I’m really impressed by the creative drinks at S3 Coffee Bar. Not only is this drink pretty, it also tastes delicious. Most rainbow lattes are birthday cake flavored which is too sweet for me but this one is hazelnut flavored!
Favorite New Recipes
Cauliflower Crab CakesI’ve made this recipe three times and there are never any leftovers. My husband loves them as much as I do.
Sheet Pan PancakesI love pancakes and making them in the sheet pan is so easy. I’ve made this recipe multiple times already too. The recipe has also recently been updated with a video.
That’s it for now. I hope everyone has a great rest of the weekend full of delicious food!
