GOOD FOOD & INSTANT PARTIES

*************************************************************************************************

PREPARING A MEAL ISN'T AS GREAT

as when you have all the necessary ingredients around.....

BUT WHAT MAKES ME WORRY MOST

is when you have to prepare something for unexpected visitors!

No notice at all ...and not all ingredients are available!

AND I have done just that!

The result?Well, I'd like to think it's great.

JUDGING by the way they all lapped it up,

I'd rate it a success [ am I just patting my OWN back,here?].

Or is it just the fact that these hungry hordes

are lapping it upfor sheer lack of 'other things' on the table?

*

DIFFERENT PEOPLE offer varying ways of recipes.

But I have prepared mine the way I deem good.

You see, I follow instincts rather than the cleanly-laid steps often written in great books of sorts.

I simply use my taste buds to guide me.

PREPARING A MEAL offers me the power to do as I will.

I guess it points to the fact that I have complete control of my 'kingdom.'...

Not that I am a good cook...no, not that.

**

MY DAD was a great Chef.

He worked in different Hotels and cooked at home as well.

He loved cooking for us meals which are only found in ChinaTown Restos.

MY MOM also cooked well.

Hers was a continuous learning...

assisted by Aling Bening, who, up to now, serves as my cook

whenever there are gatherings at Casa Montebello.

We always had great meals at home.

It was those meals I now sorely miss.

How I wish I paid more attention to Nanay's cooking....

Alas, all that is impossible now.

***

WHAT PLEASES ME MOST is that all my repertoire have been wiped out in a sec.

.Altho none were left for myself...

I was sure glad other people,those not of my own,

appreciated my efforts and amateur attempts

at PORK ROASTS,CHICKEN&PORK ADOBO, &PANCIT BIHON.

SINCE NONE was left for me, I had to settle with two pieces of PAN and a glass of milk.

****

INSTANT PARTY. GOOD FOOD. HUNGRY STOMACHS.

Can Weblogs Keep Your Customers Coming Back?
Weblogs, or "blogs," as they are also known, are the latest computing trend. While it is almost impossible to estimate how many blogs there are in the Web, recent estimates have put the number over 10 million.
Hi, I was just blog surfing and found you! You might find mine of interest, go see my work from home related site. It isnt anything special but you may still find something of interest.
