Yes – I have evolved from just waiting to be served my meals into preparing meals for my family, we have the usual Friday / Saturday is take-out / Pizza day – or when mommy is too lazy to cook day. :) My family loves to eat, I love good food, we binge at times, guilty as charged. I am not good with desserts but I know where the best cakes and pies can be bought, so it works well for us.

Meat is good, but I always take into account that our meals should be balanced somehow, I try my best to avoid cooking too much pork in a week, I go for beef or chicken breast fillets or fish. I once made them eat only vegetables for a whole week, it worked for me, but come the weekend they were asking if they could order pizza I gave in. hahahaha

Meal time is family time, we talk about anything or sometimes watch TV together or just enjoy the food, despite the busy schedules we have we make sure we get to eat together. Going to the malls always includes trying out a new resto – we want to cultivate our palettes, mahirap naman ang walang culture diba?
