My Cousin’s Shrimp Thermidor

My Cousin's Shrimp Thermidor

Sorry, I’m late…..

Yeah, this Shrimp Thermidor was one of the dishes we had during Christmas lunch….

And I’m blogging about it now because…

a. I don’t have anything to talk about…

b. I’m kinda on a diet and cooking something that is high in sugar and fat isn’t an option for me today..

c. I feel like eating shrimp but I’m too lazy to go to the market to buy some, so I decided to just stare at this photo of pretty shrimps

d. I’m really craving for Cream Cheese Frosting  and to take my mind away from my craving I have to keep it busy by writing this post.


It’s all of the above.

I’m eating bittermelons and tofu for lunch today…

And I just finished doing some exercise. I don’t really know how long this exercise thing is gonna last…

I’m giving myself a week..LOL!

Oh, BTW, here’s the recipe…
