Hey guys! The days are getting longer here with each passing day and the weather is getting warmer. In about a month and a half, it will be summer after all. And in the summer, I don’t like to eat that much. I like to stock up on salad ingredients. But eating salad every day can also get old after a while, so I try to come up with different ideas. Today, I thought I would prepare an Italian-themed plate.
In the beginning of the month, we celebrated La Chandeleur. I made them for our Sunday brunch – just the perfect way to start the day IMO. Most people don’t know what it really signifies, in fact all they know is that they have to make crepes that day. When I first moved to France, I had no idea what La Chandeleur was – crepes or no crepes.
I am still sick and stuck at home, so I figured I would spend some time with the blog. As I was going through my photos, I came across some pictures from last November. I started smiling when I saw the photos from Baby Girl’s and my dinner at Buffalo Grill in Metz, France last November 2018. I wondered why I had never thought of posting them online, so I thought I would do that this week. I’ve also added some old posts I had posted in my old food blog (click here and here).
The month of January was supposed to be a wonderful month (before I got ill). Earlier in the month, I had challenged myself to try to cook and prepare Asian dishes Filipino-Style for every meal, or at least for dinner. What does Filipino-style mean you might ask? If you ever have the opportunity with Filipinos, you will quickly notice that a Filipino meal consists of not 1 but 2 (and even 3 or more) different dishes! The challenge is to mix and match the flavors. I know what you will say next – isn’t 3 dishes a bit too much? Yes, of course! The idea is not to force yourself and finish everything. Whatever is left will be eaten the next meal, which means that if there’s a lot of leftovers, you will only need to cook 1 dish. One important thing to remember about Filipinos is to never throw away food. In a country with a high poverty rate, every single piece of meat or fish is important! Even leftover rice will be turned to garlic fried rice or Cantonese fried rice.
Ok, I know I know. I screwed up the Blogmas! 😰 I totally didn’t write any post last week and I will admit that this challenge was just too high for me. I have no excuse except that I’ve been terribly busy.
Two weeks ago, I was craving for some pizza. This rarely ever happens because I don’t really like pizza. No wait I do, but I don’t really consider it like a meal. Do you get what I mean? For me, I’ll eat a slice of pizza as a starter (or an afternoon snack hihihi) and that’s fine, but a whole pizza – not my thing! For those who don’t know me, I’m weird like that. 😉
Hello. What’s up everyone? I still can’t believe that back-to-school is just a couple of days away. Baby Girl has been on a break for 2 months now. But soon, we will be back to early wake-up calls, school, homework, and quick meals.
Hey guys! Are any of you on vacation? I wish I was!
If you are, then enjoy and please please please bring some sun. Because here in Metz, it is currently catastrophic. I mean, I look outside and it looks like it’s freaking Autumn. We’re in mid-August. It’s supposed to be all about the heat, the sun, and blue sky. A trainee of mine called me yesterday to confirm a training date in the end of the month and he was casually asking how the weather is like here. You know how the weather is like. And you say you just got out of the pool and it’s sunny there. Stop … before I die of jealousy! LOL. I console myself thinking that hopefully in December I’ll be away for 5 weeks. But December is so far away, I say childishly to myself.
