Staple Bread

Always present in my pantry at home is bread. I consider this as one of the staple food because I always have it paired with my morning coffee. I make it into sandwich, cheese and egg or simply with cheese. White bread, wheatened, apple cinnamon are my favorites. My morning is always beautiful with a cup of coffee and a bread in hand.Fresh bread is prized for its taste, aroma, quality, appearance and texture. Retaining its freshness is important to keep it appetizing.

Ceramic Diningwares


I got this ceramic dining wares as a present last holiday season. I was so happy to received it as utensils for home. The gift consists of 2 pieces (by set) of cups, platters, plates and deep serving plates. Made of white ceramic with little red designs on the edge.This is great for servings on special occasions to  guests and also to the members of the family. Careful handling especially when washing should be observe on these kinds of utensils to prevent from breakage and scratch.

Cheap Blinds

I am having plans of renovating the kitchen this coming summer. This is quite tough because I have to personally check out every detail of the kitchen area starting from the color/motif, design, arrangement and many other necessities with regards to renovation. I would like to make it simple yet comfortable and stylish to match my unique and modern personality. This time I would like to use blinds instead of the old fashioned curtains. I checked out with the architect about Made to measure Vertical Blinds which is the modern use for windows. He was approved of my personal choice and even recommended it for my modern house kitchen. I am happy that we are having the same sense of taste as far as house remodeling is concerned. Hopefully I will be coming up with my orders next week.

Crab Cravings


I had great Sunday at home as I satisfied my cravings for one of my favorite seafood -- crabs. The price is not so expensive so I bought two pieces of regular size crabs. I simply cooked it the steamed way with onions, ginger, lemon grass, salt, pepper, fish sauce and seasonings. It tasted so heavenly as the crabs were truly  fat and meaty. Me and my brother enjoyed savoring the very complicated parts of the crab as much as we can. Satisfying indeed especially on a very relaxing weekend. I hope I can find another indulgence this week.

Wines

I love wines! Being in passion with food and cooking I consider wine as part of my personal interests. Last holiday season, the family had a great get together.I was the one who planned and prepared foods for all the guests. I included this Chardonnay kind of white wine because it is a good match for foods that I prepared like chicken salad, chicken pasta creme and fish terriyaki. My wine deals was so perfect indeed and everybody enjoyed the celebration. I will be ordering cases of this wine by next week through the online site  for the graduation of my niece and birthday of my brother. There will be lots of parties coming up by March and it pays to order the wines ahead so  that it will arrive before the scheduled days. I will have to inform My and Lyn also because they are interested to have white wines for their family reunions.

Delicious Lunch

I am feeling hungry for lunch while doing some personal errands today. I take a hearty meals on my favorite restaurant that serves delicious and healthy orders. Aside from that, the combo menu is affordable too. I ordered rice, chicken liver asado, lomi noodle soup, mixed vegetables in coco milk, fresh fruit salad and a glass of iced tea. I am so full and it gives me energy up until this late afternoon. Thank you for this delicious lunch.

Need new furniture?

Yes of course, I need a new furniture on my newly opened restaurant. Additional dining tables on the other half of the restaurant so that my guests will not get crowded and will be comfortable in their dining activities. I personally choose this style, a standard finish log dining table. This rustic furniture is individually crafted in good quality and standards. The concept of having this kind of dining table depicts my choice of modern elegance and style. For sure my avid diners will enjoy their hearty lunch and dinner in the restaurant with the delicious food servings as well as beautiful ambiance. I already ordered 10 sets like the one shown on the picture and hopefully be delivered early next week.

Siomai Cravings

I was malling weeks ago to unwind after office work. I came across this special dumplings' stall and tried tasting an order of their steamed siomai. I choose the Japanese combo and it tasted good with some added spices and calamansi  as the sauce. The price is affordable that makes me tempted to buy every time I visit the mall. This afternoon I eat six pieces and its delicious as always. Just making my tummy in condition for the evening class later.

Toasted Snacks

I bought some toasted snack bread yesterday and I had a good time munching it during my break time in the office. It helped relieved the feeling of hunger before the main meal time like lunch or dinner. The delicious taste of baked white bread brushed with butter then sprinkled with sugar. Crisp golden snack any time of the day.
