International Women's Day - March 8

Wishing my female family members and friends, Happy Women's Day.
Don't forget to treat yourself today, okay?

Had a planned breakfast date today with my "super-(mom) friends" at Ramada Central Manila. J and I were curious about the buffet since C and I dined there about a week ago. But this time around, C had to beg off because she has tons of things on her mind. That's another kwento, for our ears only.




And because I fell in-love with the bacon and french toast during my first visit ...


... I also had my fill of watermelon.


And because its International Women's Day today, I surprised my friends with these ...


Daughter taught me how to make the cute origami boxes. :)

And inside the boxes/envelopes are these lovelies!


That's us, posing in front of the camera. With our second plates, I think. ;)


And the celebration of Women's Day continues. I haven't seen my other "mommy" group for ages now. And since they are all working in offices (except me, a stay-at-home-mom), we decided to meet up for dinner. We dropped by at the newly opened East Wing of One Shangri-La Place Mall.


But since there's still a few restos there and we don't want to wait, we headed back to trusty old "The Ledge" at Shangri-La Plaza 6L and had dinner at Crustasia.


We had yummy shrimp cakes ...


... and Catfish Salad ....


... and Pineapple Fried Rice.


And Cereal Prawns. So DELISH!



To sum it up, I really had a good day with my "girl' friends today. Hoping to see you all again --- soon! Next week maybe? ;)

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.
