Homebound

Settling into the “stay at home” order has become the new normal. Our creativity has been pushed to new levels as we nestle in to find viable interest and to stave off boredom.  Yesterday, I was seriously craving Chinese food which remains one of my absolute favorite comfort food options. Growing up this style of food was a weekend treat in our household, and now our neighborhood has opened restaurants that are reintroducing regional dishes such as; Char Siu Bao, Dan Dan Mein or Wonton Noodle soup, but last night I opted for Crab Fried rice from my own kitchen.

Fresh crab
½ teaspoon of salt
¼ teaspoon of sugar
1 tablespoon of light soy sauce
spring onion
oyster sauce
soy sauce / dark soy
a spritz of lime juice

Stay safe and bon appétit,
Kathleen

Staying Grounded

Taking a break in the morning sunlight with a cup of coffee and a bit of soft jazz playing.

As many adjust to working from home, staying focused and motivated have become challenge. Over the last few weeks we’ve become fervent homebodies for the health and safety of ourselves and others.

Evening sunsets and homemade desserts.

Devise a routine each morning by drafting a to-do list designating times for virtual meetings, reports and conference calls. As we spend more time at home, make your work space attractive and comfortable by choosing a location with abundant sunlight and fresh flowers as your new office essentials.

Lastly, there are fewer distractions in your home so, remember to take breaks and stay stylish!
