Five Little Things

Happy Friday! This week flew by, but it was a fulfilling one. I was able to catch up with an old friend this week, and it was a good reminder to me that we need to cherish and nurture the good people in our life. I hope you have been able to enjoy quality time with friends and family – I know that after the holidays, it’s easy to get into a busy rut.

Here are Five Little Things I loved this week:

1. Bok Choy

I’ve been on a bok choy kick this week – it’s such an easy way to eat your greens! I love dropping them in Instant Pot Short Rib Ramen, or in Bok Choy Risotto with Coconut Milk and Pan Seared Shrimp. I also used it in my Vegetarian Pancit Bihon (Filipino Rice Noodles with Veggies) recently! What’s your favorite way to cook bok choy?

2. Kimono Wedding Dresses

I just love how beautiful these beautiful, traditional kimonos are transformed into modern kimono wedding dresses!

3. Inspiring Cotton

I learned about Liziqi and her remarkable videos this week, and am mesmerized. This one, where she shows us how to make cotton, from planting to harvest, is inspiring!

4. Optimism is the Secret

Betty White turned 98 this year, and I love her secret to happiness!

5. Delicious Movies

These cold days are ideal for cuddling on the couch with bucket of popcorn and a movie. What’s your favorite movie food scenes? I admit to being critical now when I watch them!

Wishing you a cozy weekend!

    The five little things I love are surprisingly similar to yours but not on the food.

    I would go ahead and try it out and see if we both like five things commonly.
