Day 17 - Getting rid of all the hestitation

Okay, this is going to be a 2 in 1 post about my adventure as Gordan Ramsay.


Let's start with the Roasted peaches with vanilla,spice, and honey. Here's how it went down:

4-5 peaches
2 cinnamon sticks
2 star anise
1 vanilla bean, spilt
60ml runny honey
splash of peach liqueur
plain yogurt, to serve

Heat up the oven to 375F and bake for 20 minutes until the peaches are slightly caramelized around the edges. You will know when its done, you can see the edges start to brown. Once you reach that stage, take it out and let it cool down for a while. Place everything on a plate and serve with yogurt. The presentation is up to you but the smell and taste was just so rewarding. It was very, very good. A must try.

And in between, I had dinner with my cell group. I was so happy to see them since I don't see them often enough. We went to Big Mouth Kee at hwy 7 and leslie. Check out some of our photos. =)

I have always been a fan of smoothies ever since I was a kid. I love how healthy they can be and at the same time, I won't feel guilty having seconds. I like my smoothies thick for your information, you know in case you make me smoothies one day. Haha. Here's how you make this beastly drink:

200g raspberries
200g blackberries
90ml plain yogurt
300ml milk
60ml maple syrup

Dump them all in the blender and blend until smooth. Don't let it sit and drink it right away! Personally, I didn't like how there were so many seeds but I loved the flavour and I know it's healthy since I control the ingredients!

This is my new favourite smoothie recipe! Now I must get a blender. Haha. I borrowed tonight's from a friend and I have to return it but don't worry, I will get one.

A very wise person told me this today and it impacted me in a way that I wanted to just get up and do something about it. I hope this would influence you in the same way as well.
