It’s almost been two months since Brett and I left China, which means….
it’s time to travel!!
Brett just booked our next two trips and I’m pretty excited about them. In two weeks, we’re actually heading back to Hong Kong for another quick and restful weekend trip that just so happens to be over my birthday.
Uh, I can’t believe I’m almost 27.
Is it too early to have a mid-life crisis?
Anyways, we also booked a trip to Vietnam in October over the week long break we have from class in the fall. We’re hoping it will redeem our last trip to Vietnam that ended early due to rain.
I’ll keep ya posted.
Today I have a super quick and delicious recipe for you that Brett and I have been enjoying all week.Easy Chickpea Tomato Sauce Curry! I’ve been wanting to make a tomato sauce based curry recipe for quite some time now and I finally got around to it. Yay! This recipe couldn’t be easier to throw together and the infusion of tons of fresh cilantro gives this dish such a fresh flavor. We’ve been enjoying this Easy Chickpea Tomato Sauce Curry over rice and with sweet potatoes. It’s delicious!
