What's cookin'?

It's a Sunday. A beautiful day. Sunny and Summer. I was inspired to cook today for one because of you tube, i watched a few tutorials and two because the guy that cooks for us took a vacation hence, I am the cook today. ^_^ I don't mind it really. It's been a while since the last time I cooked. I cooked 2 dishes, Chicken Curry and Binagoan Pork (sauted pork with shrimp paste). It was not bad actually, I was afraid I lost my cooking skills. haha.


Ok now this 4th one it took me a long time to finish. About a week. I've been busy with work, I work at night and it has been crazy busy this week. I can't believe I'm done. I will surely miss reading. I will not try to give anything away to not ruin those who haven't read these Saga. I recommend for those who just watched the movie to read it. It's a must read. I'm in love with it. ^_^ Oh excuse my teal nails. I just thought it's pretty, so summery. ^_^

My Quick Fix

I have a sweet tooth I admit but I am not a fan of desserts or drinks that are too sweet, too sweet that it will make me feel dizzy. I was feeling tired and stressed the other day, and so I wanted to have something to pick me up. A little cheer me up type of food. Of course there's nothing like putting sugar in your body to cheer you up. I thought hard what I wanted and so I remember I recently discovered Starbucks brownie somethin' cheesecake (believe me the name is like 5 words long). My sister and I went to Starbucks immediately. Don't get me wrong I am not a big Starbucks fan. Believe it or not my sister worked for Starbucks for about 9yrs and so I should already know every product that they have but no. I don't know why. Whenever I go there I will have to look at the menu board and when I order, when they ask the size I'll be like I want the smallest size though they have names for that. Sometimes I feel stupid and ignorant when I go there knowing that my sister worked for them for a long time. Hahaha. Enough babbling. About the cheesecake, it's not your ordinary cheesecake. Usually when you eat a regular cheesecake, it will feel smooth and just melts in your mouth. This one has textures in it. The cheesecake itself is smooth and will melt in your mouth but wait till you get a bite of the cookie on top, the cubed brownies in the middle and the chocolate chips. Every bite of it just makes me feel good that when I finished it, when you look at my plate and fork, there's not even a sign of the cheesecake there. Literally gone, wiped out. I just love love love it. I wish it will be a permanent in their menu. ^_^

The barista suggested iced latte to balance the sweetness.


I just finished New Moon in 2 days. Crazy right? I am so excited to start with Eclipse because since I already watched the first two before reading the book, I already know what to expect. Since Eclipse is coming out in June and I am positive I'll be done reading in two days, I don't know what to expect after Edward's proposal and if Bella will be one of them. Super excited. ^_^
