Italliani's Date and Astro-Clock 2013

December 27, 2012

Forgot to post this! Hahaha

Today, daughter and I had a nice date in Taguig. Actually, we ran some errands for hubby and we ended up going to EchoStore in Serendra to deliver some of hubby's book --- Medieval Astro-Clock 2013.





SHAMELESS PLUG ALERT:

The book includes a 12-month calendar (please see photo below) with daily luckiest hour time guide and lucky dates. It also have astro-meteorology articles. This book, btw, is calculated using Philippine time zone so it is much more accurate for "us" Filipinos.

Aside from EchoStore (Serendra, Podium, and Centris branches), it is also available at Earth-GeoShop in Cubao Expo, Theosophical Society Bookshop in Quezon City, Sunrise and Golden Phoenix stores in Ongpin, Manila and Mt. Cloud Bookshop in Baguio. You can also get your copy from Ms. Melanie Talag of Age of Aquarius Center in Greenhills (02-7262338). SRP is P350 plus P110 (LBC) courier fee. You can also send me your inquiries at: yorutsuyomi@gmail.com.






And because a trip won't be complete without eating (we went there with empty stomachs), daughter suggested Italliani's which was just several meters away from FullyBooked (my daughter is a bookworm and so am I).

And while waiting for our orders, we were served this (olive oil with balsamic vinegar) ...



... for this. Foccacia bread. Quite filling already!



The bottles look lovely.
 


Parmesan Crusted Dory. The fish was a bit salty mainly because of the parmesan but it blends well with the mashed potato and veggies. I ordered the smallest serving portion but I still wasn't able to eat all of it. Daughter helped a bit. She loves fish.



Seafood Pasta. I can't recall the name except that daughter enjoyed this immensely. Daughter's been feeling grown-up-y a bit lately and has been exploring other dishes with exotic sounding names. She loves to pore over menus, reading even the tiniest details that may have escaped some of us.

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!

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.
