Taobao Ordering and Food

I just ordered a toaster oven, that is just a small counter top oven, on Taobao (chinese amazon basically) but it is going to be perfect for baking and being able to cook more things. I am still tired of Chinese food. I can’t wait to start making foooood. I’m thinking stuffed peppers, pizza, mac and cheese, and so much more. I already made pizza twice and it was omg good! I went with one of my friends to Ole and we bought bread flour and added baking powder to make it like pizza dough. We bought mozzarella cheese and some type of pepperoni type thing as well as basil tomato sauce. I’ve really been trying to cook so I’ve made beef with cheesy broccoli and mashed potatoes, chicken and broccoli cheesy pasta, pizza and french toast. I haven’t eaten out or had chinese food in like almost a week. Woohoo this is an improvement from eating out every day.

Jenny bought a blender on Taobao and we use it like every day. Seriously smoothies are my new addiction, soooo good! I even found blackberries and strawberries for like $2 a package (not as big as in America but still a good amount) So I put ice, coconut milk, greek yogurt, a banana, a handful of strawberries and blackberries and it is AMAZING!!!! I sometimes add protein powder too because as you know I don’t eat that much meat here so I have to get protein from other sources. So back to smoothies.. there is another smoothie I started making that is ice, coconut milk, greek yogurt, a banana, and peanut butter powder. It’s delicioussss! I brought the peanut butter powder from America and it is perfect for smoothies. It makes two cups so I have it for brunch during the week with my coffee! I just tried a new one that is pineapple, banana, greek yogurt, coconut milk and ice… yummm yumm!

P.S. I’m still working on this picture thing. Ta ta for now
