Snow peas , mushroom and pork stir-fry
I thrive on simple , easy , nutritious and affordable dish ....
Especially the last part ....
But then who wouldn't ? In this day and age ?
Everything is so expensive that when I see a sign - this way to the mall - I go the other way so as not to be tempted with everything that I want but don't really need lol
I'm sure you've seen my previous post . That cost me a dollar only , the cheapest , I bet in food blogging ....
Who says food blogging is expensive ?! I beg to disagree ! I bet some of you also lurk at some beauty blogs . I'm sure you've seen that a mere bottle of nail polish retails for more than HK $ 100. ?!!! Don't forget the price of lipstick , eye shadow , eye liner , foundation , moisturizer...... To think you can't eat those . But then you can use those war paint over and over again , that is , until the new season dictates a new trend , then you want to buy something new , again . At least you won't a problem gaining weight while putting on your make up ^___^
Don't worry , moderation is the key . As long as you won't stuff yourself silly with everything that is deliciously awesome but unhealthy food , you're safe .
Yeah , keep telling that to your self , Anne lol
