Mitchell's Lamb Koftas

Mitchell and I had been experimenting with a lot of different cuisine. We came across this from one of our favorite Indian restaurant and decided to recreate our own after asking the waiter what the basic ingredients are. And It came out great!

1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon tumeric
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 pound lean ground lamb

Combine all ingredients and shape into 12 lamb balls.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Put olive oil and add lamb balls.
cook each lamb for about 10 minutes, turning occasionally to brown all sides. Cook until done.

Otters and reindeers

The otters at the Philly zoo is one of my favorite place to visit. They are so playful and entertaining. They love people and loves to swim!

It was cold that day but my sweater was warm enough for a cold weather. I like the reindeer design on my sweater. It fits perfect for the season. The vest is in size small and it fits perfectly. They come in multiple colors and currently on sale at any J.crew factory!

Quilted Vest Jacket

This is my other favorite jacket from LL bean. They run in petite sizes so it's perfect for my height. I got an xs and it still has a little room for a thicker sweater inside. There's also an adjustable belt on the side which is a plus. This is great for fall and spring jacket!

BTW, meet my puppy PENNY. She is an Australian shepherd puppy. She loves to smell and nips everything but very loving and caring! I will be writing more about her and how we deal with her whining and crying everyday. She is adorable but a lot of work.
