After a week of non-stop writing and editing at work, I’m feeling a little bit of writer’s block/fatigue. Please forgive me for just sharing some photos of a lovely meal we both cooked together one weeknight. Pasta au gratin. By itself, the homemade tomato sauce was just a bit too sweet but when the pasta was topped with grated cheese and grilled (broiled), the balance was just perfect. I’m planning on making everything au gratin now – hooray for toasty cheese!

Anyway, if you didn’t know, it’s Chinese New Year on Monday and it’ll be the year of the Ox. I’ll be having my mini-celebratory meal tomorrow on the Eve and I hope to have some nice photos and possibly a post for you!

Happy Chinese New Year!
