When I was asked to write a post about over indulgence recently I couldn't decide what to write about! You all know my obsession with nail polish and makeup but food is another huge love of mine which I don't share often enough with you on my blog. Good food is something I never like to scrimp on and it's always a fitting reward after a tough week at work! The boy and I decided to head out to Chatswood last weekend to try out Shanghai Stories 1938 restaurant that his friend Julie recommended. It was well worth the trip over the bridge! Peep the yummy food we ordered below.
Shanghai Xiao Long Bao:
Prawn and pork wonton soup:
House special prawn toast:
Poached pork dumpling in chili oil:
Double seared beef buns:
Although we were already stuffed I couldn't resist ordering these adorable steamed red bean panda buns!!! Hello cuteness overload.
It was the perfect way to unwind and there is nothing quite like a day out with your favourite person who also loves food as much as you do.
Speaking of indulging oneself... the new and improved Skinny Cow Ice-Cream cookies are even more indulgent than ever! They're now 15% bigger (110mls per serve compared to the previous 95mls) which is something I won't complain about because it means MORE ice-cream! It will definitely satisfy your sweet cravings without guilt as they are 97% fat free and are low in calories. They contain just enough sugar to make them deliciously sweet but without using any artificial sweeteners!
The new Skinny Cow ice-cream recipe is sandwiched between two delicious chocolate biscuits and is available in three flavours; vanilla, caramel, and brand new for 2012 - delicious chocolate. You can find these yummy ice creams in the health section of the freezer aisle at your local supermarket now. Grab a box to get in on the Skinny Cow month of indulgence!
