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…
