Kitchen Creations

We have just under eleven months ’til our church wedding back in Manila, but instead of working out and watching my diet, I’ve been indulging the hubby and I to some of my kitchen creations. Not having a full time job and basically just keeping myself busy with wedding preparations, I have plenty of extra time to be a real housewife. I enjoy it a lot, because a big part of being a stay-at-home wife is cooking meals, and we all know how much I love anything to do with food! XP

Here are some meals I cooked for hubby and I last week:

Beef Bourguignon. Cooking this took several hours, but it turned out really delish! I’m thinking of cooking it again when my friends come over for dinner next week. :)

Beefy Tomato Linguine, because I was feeling Italian that night. =D

Shrimp and Tuna Aglio Olio for dinner last Friday.

For dinner last night, I made the hubby’s favorite meal: steak with potato salad and broccoli.

I reckon my timing for posting this is a little off, considering that it’s Holy Week and all I’ve been yakking about is food! =P So, I think I’m going to stay away from food indulgences… until Easter Sunday. XD

A Need to Start Eating Healthy Again
Posted on: 4th of August 2006 | Under: Palate Pleaser

Staying at home almost everyday has altered my eating habit drastically. Gone are the days when I could last a whole week (even a few months!) of going rice-free. Gone are the days when I could resist without hesitation even just a bite of sinful chips or a slice of some scrumptious cake. Gone are the days when I would be heartily satisfied with a small portion of meat with vegies, or a simple tuna sandwich.

I have lost discipline over my taste buds. I have lost discipline over temptation.

And because of my unhealthy eating for the past few months, it was definitely not a surprise to start feeling my thighs suffocating beneath a couple of my jeans that are now about a half size too small. Even a double chin is starting to develop!

So in hopes of attempting to get back into shape, I promised myself to eat healthy today.

I had a light breakfast of toast, then prepared myself a sandwich for lunch. I enjoyed every bite of each meal.

Dinner was delicious (and healthy!) because I grilled myself some chicken breasts and had it with salad on the side.


My plan was going perfectly well, until I had a crazy idea of whipping out my spatula and baking tray. One thing led to another, and the next thing I know is that I had baked and filled up an entire jar of double chunky chocolate chip cookies!


With that crazy idea, I had broken my plan for the day. I must’ve already had about 4 cookies, but even if it’s already past midnight, my feet are itching for me to walk to the kitchen to grab a couple more! 8-}

Oh Lords! Tomorrow, I promise not to make any more promises about going on a diet.
