The seed I put in a week ago starting to sprouts.


March 14
My friend invited me to teach the ladies in her church how to bake, so I make a batch of Hokkaido cupcake at home today just to make sure, I didn't have any baking experience till I moved to NYC, so I am not a teacher but I like to share my bake stuff with friends, and they like it so they asked me to show them how to do it.




March 16
Today I found a few pee spot in my craft room, OH BOY!!! What is wrong with our little boy, he was trained since he was little, he went to his pee pee pad to do his business and never have any accident at home, why is he doing this now???? WHY????




March 17
DH has been a regular donor of the charity called Three Square, today we were invited to a St. Patrick's day dinner/cooking demonstration at Three Square facility. 


it is good to know that the money we donated go to some many hungry children here in Las Vegas, the warehouse is huge, not only they have donors, they also have lots of volunteers come in everyday to cook, pack and deliver lunches to schools.




cooking demonstration was fun....




 we had Shepherd's pie and corn beef cooked by Three Square chief, it was yummy. The best part of the evening is to hear attendees sharing their personal stories, most of them were recipient of charities when they were young, receiving free lunches and now as an adult, they are paying forward, a lot of stories were very touching.....

We watched Guy Fiery recommended Road Kill Grill long time ago on Food Network show "Diners Dive and Drive", we finally get to try it today.


Road kill Grill was just right next to the butcher where we visited a few times before...


now they added sitting around, we even saw a line....


I like the ribs but DH wasn't impressed with his rib tips at all...
