a day in a life of Liza Mae | Martha Stewart Life

Posted on 29 December 2008 by Liza Mae V.

We wake up side-by-side, smile on his face brings me happiness inside.  So I give him a big hug bringing him close to me – wanting him to be inside me … mentally and spiritually.  I take a deep breath in hoping that in some magical way that we can be as one  and I breath out realizing that is impossible.  My heart melts every time I get this feeling.  It is like I’ve gone speechless, heart races, and stomach turns. I digress.


It has been more than a week since we’ve moved into the house and it has been completely fabulous, in which most wouldn’t call fabulous.  We’ve actually been roughing it out and sleeping on the living room floor with mats and sheets.  That reminds me of the time where my family had moved into our first house on Nelson street and had nothing.  I know the struggle since it is difficult in the beginning with all the expenses that come with a house – mortgage, hydro, phone, cable, gas, etc.  I can’t believe the city charges for parking in his own driveway and for garbage disposal.

I have been cooking a lot more and I actually enjoy it.  This is my menu so far …

Eggs (any style but we both prefer over easy)
Peameal Bacon
Buttered corn
Broccoli with cheese
Toasted Naan Bread
Paratha Bread

Lunch or Dinner:
Liza’s Sandwich
– (consists of Hot Genoa Salami, Turkey Breast, Jalepeno Havarti Cheese)
Tempura Shrimp (he ate 70% of my batch)
Sashimi Salmon
Udon Noodle Soup (like instant noodles but simply amazing)
Lemon Pepper Mushrooms
Baked Chicken with Potatoes
Lobster with Garlic butter (all for myself because he dislikes it – I was in heaven though, it is my ultimate favorite.  Apparantly I am banned from cooking it in the house since I can’t handle live lobster – it started flapping away, plus he made me feel bad because he said I was torturing the poor thing by steaming it to death)

This week I’m going to attempt cooking buttered chicken, green curry chicken, and baby bok choy with Garlic.  I should really post pictures of my food and share it with the world to enjoy.

So besides from all the cooking, we’ve been watching a lot of HGTV and getting good ideas to renovate the house.  We pulled up 60 year old carpet and tiles from two bedrooms, we know this because we found parts of Globe & Mail newspaper dated March 1948.  That was labour intensive and I can’t believe we did it by ourselves. :)  We plan to refinish the hardwood floors so they will look top notch.  If they do not look so good, we will lay down new hardwood.  So many plans in mind but do we have the budget and the time to complete it?  Stay tuned.  I will update the progress in the weeks to come.

That has been another day in life of Liza Mae … Happy Holidays!
