I have no excuse for not writing. NO EXCUSE AT ALL! I was half lazy and half busy to take decent food shots, curate the photos to my desired mix, and write an equally passable entry. My goals of posting consistently has failed, and I feel remorseful. I should do better (here I go again). AND I WILL.
The other day, I played around with cheese that was lying around in our refrigerator for a time. I rushed to a nearby grocery to buy Pimiento and made my self a fresh serving of Pimiento Cheese spread. It was late in the afternoon and I made myself a cup of coffee to go with my merienda. The moment I indulged on my concoction with toasted bread, I knew I would say good bye to its store-bought counterpart.
The cheese actually reminded me of my grandmother. My dad told me how his mom made everything from scratch, even their ketchup! Now how awesome was that? She even made Atis ice cream when she had the time! I figured I should create my own too (with Star Apple since it’s my favorite) haha! I will let you know how that goes in the future.
I missed writing. I actually do.
Just to add an update this photo was taken two Saturdays ago. So, this is my husband’s side of the family! His nephew just celebrated his first birthday and we came there to paaartyyy. I daydreamed what my future kid’s first fête would be like – will it also be in Shakey’s? (to continue the Ramos tradition of Shakey’s parties) I just pray God will bless us with one soon, I guess that is what matters for now. My crazy desires have gone wild and we still do not have a child to celebrate it with hahaha. In time. In God’s time. 🙂
