Foggy Breakfast

Manila's been super hot lately so when C invited me for a breakfast date at Bag of Beans, I happily said yes. Luck was with with since there's no traffic on our southbound journey until we reached Sta Rosa exit. Ugh! And since we both need to be back in Manila by 12nn to fetch the kids, we decided to head back where we came from... uh oh! Luckily (again), she remembered Batino exit. So off we drove again, farther south. ....







Thick fog greeted us in the high lands! The one on the photo reminds me of a scary movie. Or if I allow my imagination to run wild, zombies would suddenly attack us.



Luckily, the sky was a bit clear (although very chilly) by the time we arrived at Bag of Beans (Rotonda Branch). We would've loved to sit al fresco but we don't want to freeze to death. Just took some photos of the lake before going back inside. Wasn't able to wear my pink shawl. :(



And because we are really, really cold, we welcomed the hot mugs of hot chocolate. Drinking hot cocoa in Tagaytay or Baguio is l-o-v-e. I would've preferred my hot chocolate less sweeter but its okay. No complaints. I guess almost every occupied table had a mug or two or three of hot chocolate. :)



Grilled Cheese and Fries. The bread shrunk in size but still tastes good. However, it wasn't that hot anymore when it was served to us. I even called the waiter's attention because the table next to ours got their food first even if we arrived earlier. Bad! But we let it pass since we got sidetracked and had a bread-buying-spree from their bakeshop. Think cinammon rolls, raisin bread, garlic sticks and biscocho. Yum!




Forgot the name. C said its okay. But I love the eggs at UCC so I know I won't be ordering it at Bag of Beans.



The bread. Lovely, freshly baked breads.

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!
