One more month and it’s Baby Girl’s first communion. I am divided in 3 parts. One part just wants it all to be done with, another part is very excited for D-Day, and the last part is freaked out about not having enough time to finish it all.

Coquillettes Jambon

Hello everyone! How are you all doing?

As you might know, I am half Filipino-half French and I am married to a Filipino man. As Filipinos, it is part of our culture and heritage to eat rice everyday. Back in the Philippines, we ate rice up to 3 times a day, but here in France we usually have rice once a day. But that’s just because breakfast is usually a quick one and we don’t usually eat lunch at home. I was told recently by a client that apparently Asians have a sort of stomach enzyme which makes it easier to eat and digest rice. I still have to confirm that information. While eating rice so regularly is a real pleasure for us, it’s not the case for our daughter, Baby Girl. She has a hard time understanding why rice is so frequent on our dining table. LOL. If she could cook our meals, she would prepare pasta and French fries. I do try to cook pasta from time to time, but I never make fries at home. The smell of cooking fried potatoes is not one that I particularly like, so we save that for when we go to the restaurant.

Poulet Basquaise

Poulet Basquaise is of my favorite French dishes ever. Turns out, it’s one of the easiest thing to make as well, so it’s safe to say that I cook this at least once or twice a month. What’s great is that it is made with bell peppers and red bell pepper is a great source of vitamin C. I know a lot of people who have difficulties digesting bell peppers. Thank God we don’t have that problem! 😉
