Five Guys Fastfood in Paris, France

 

I feel like everyone knows Five Guys. If not for their burger, then thanks to President Obama’s love story with them. I remember a couple of years ago, while going through current events I stumbled on articles about President Obama visiting Five Guys for dinner. I also remember thinking that for a guy who seemed like a health nut, he sure loved his Five Guys burger. I promised myself that I would have one, one day and see what the presidential hype was all about.

Throwback Thursday: Golden Cowrie in Cebu, Philippines

 

I miss home. Home for me is Cebu, Philippines. I haven’t been back since 2011. Can you believe that? Some days I really really want to go back, but other days I just don’t know. Normally, we will go back in December this year. I can’t wait I can’t wait to be with my friends. I can’t wait to spend time on the beach. And I certainly can’t wait to eat in all my favorite places!

Buffalo Grill in Metz, France

 

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).

Buffalo Grill in Semecourt, France (June 2015)

 

Last March, I experienced dining for the first time in Buffalo Grill in Semecourt, France and it will most probably be the last one. It was such a bad experience that I had totally forgotten about it until I was browsing through my pictures today. My first time ever trying a Buffalo Grill was 2 years ago (click here fore the post) in the ZAC d’Augny and looking back it wasn’t so bad. This time, in Semécourt, was plain horrible.

Buffalo Grill in ZAC d’Augny, France (September 2013)

 

There’s not a lot that I detest, but one thing for sure is I absolutely hate late lunches! I tend to get the worst headaches ever which usually last all day long and I also have a really bad stomach ache right after eating. It’s the worst combination ever! I try to avoid that as much as possible, but there was nothing I could do today. Baby Girl had her first swimming class today. It started at 11:30AM and lasted about 40 minutes. For the first session, the swimming instructor asked that I stay with Baby Girl to help her out with changing outfits and taking a shower. The Husband and I stayed the whole time and watched our little girl with a lot of pride. But then, I got a call from the hospital where Dad was. They asked if we could come pick up Dad as the doctor gave the green sign for him to come home. It was 2:00PM when the four of us were finally in the car. Our stomachs growled in unison, pleading us to get food!

Cooking Asian Dishes

 

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.
