    Crispy homemade fries

    I recently discovered the secret to making crispy fries in my attempt to create better food (insert: choices) and food photos this 2019. Normally, I do not make such a huge fuss in researching ways to improve the look and taste of something as ordinary as fries because 1) I make them only to devour them instantly, and 2) these finger foods seem to be too simple to make a blog post out of. I was wrong (at least for number one). Preparing food properly made my family appreciate me more haha. ^_^ My previous thoughts on fries were: It originated from France.

    The Silog I love

    I have a new source of amusement! a washing machine haha. We just bought one and I have been thrilled to pieces just trying to work my way through laundry. I have been hand washing our clothes since we got back from our honeymoon (six months ago)! My hands need a rest, they have been dry as ever! wrinkles and all. 🙁 However, towards the middle of me sorting out the buttons, I realized how much of a noob I was! haha oh well. ANYWAY. Tomorrow is another holiday! Eid al Fitr, which is a special religious holiday celebrated by the Muslims; but Andre decided not to go to work today…

    Clay Pot Chicken

    Thursday = bible study and Chinese food!  I feel like doing a Sheldon (from Big Bang Theory) and declaring tonight as Chinese Food night! Minus the junk that comes with take out grub, since they eat their nosh from boxes. Andre usually holds his d-group (bible study group) at our house during Thursdays and it is such a challenge to whip up something different each time. I am just so grateful that it is so easy to feed boys haha. As long as its edible, then it is good to go! (Right?)  I love love love having guests over! Sometimes it just gets too quiet at home, even for me…
