Grundy Lake

Went to Grundy Lake for camping!

Our camp site was right by the water so it was easy to get on the boat to fish or fish on the shore. At night time, moon was shining bright and there was less forest surrounding the campsite so the area was super bright.

This place is 3 hours drive from Toronto, I got to see so many different kinds of wild animal here. It was nice break to chill in the wild.

Gift Wrap Decoration 5: Tsum Tsum

Did drawing of Tsum Tsum characters for 7 years old girl.

Stick to the basic and picked Mickey and Minnie Tsum Tsum. I find drawing Mickey and Minnie can go wrong when you don't get their "M" shape forehead drawn right.

Mince and Tatties

Showing one of the recipe from "At Home with Lynn Crawford".
I like this book, because it has pretty simple recipes that you can easily make with common ingredient you have at home.

Ground beef is common meat I buy quite often. This is one of simple and cozy recipe!

Mince & Tatties
- 1 tbsp veg. oil
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 2 tbsp unsaltedbutter
- 1 cup finely chopped onions
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 cups beef stock
- 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 cup diced carrots
- 1 cup frozen peas
- salt and pepper
- 4 cups mashed potatoes.

1. In a large skillet over medium-high, hear oil. Add beef and cook, stirring frequently and breaking meat down with back of a wooden spoon, until no pink remains, about 5 minutes.

2. Add butter and onion and cook, stirring frequently until browned, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle flour over mixture and cook, stirring constanly, until well incorporated, about 2 minutes more.

3. Gradually stir in stock Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil, then reduce hear to low and simmer stirring occasionally, until gravy has thickened slightly, about 20 minutes.

4.Add carrots and cook until tender, about 10 minutes.

5. stir in peas and cook until heated through, about 2 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve spooned over hot whipped potatoes.

*This dish goes well with brown rice too!

Outfit Inspiration 1

I generally enjoy fashion with making and drawing.. So long time ago, I participated in Flickr's group "What I Wore Today(drawing only)". I did a style like a paper doll where you swap the clothing using same pose. Recently it brought me back to do this again. But sticking to my own outfit wasn't enough while there are so many wonderful outfits out there.

So I'm starting a new series of sharing ideas what to wear. Some will be outfits I'm inspired by people outside, and some will be outfits I own.

Starting with what to wear with simple grey sweater. More clothing description below.

Outfit Inspiration

Jacob grey sweater / American Eagle white tank top / Club Monaco black step foot legging / Keds flats
