We Love Our Bread ...

Are you familiar with the cartoon show Madeleine?

Years ago, when daughter was still a toddler, she loves to watch that show on Disney Channel. Maybe because she thinks she's Madeleine since both of them sports the same short hair and is surrounded by nuns. Well, Madeleine is surrounded by nuns while my daughter has an aunt nun! 




The gist of the story is that Madeleine live in the orphanage with other girls. The orphanage is being run by a nun. And almost every day, they all have nice adventures.

And here's the story of the bread.



Hubby arrived home today lugging a huge pack of loaf bread. He said it was given by a client after their meeting. Oh, okay --- bread?? Anyways, it was fresh from the oven (hubby said), and he even saw it coming out of the kitchen and being brought to the hotel's cafe. 




Anyways, the bread suddenly made me remember of a nice prayer from the cartoon show, Madeleine.

It goes like this ...

We love our bread ...
We love our butter ...
But most of all ...
We love each other. 


A very nice but simple prayer for a child, and for all of us. 

I am thankful that I have my family close to me, and that we love each other dearly. I am thankful that we have bread on our table, and that even if lacking at certain times, we are able to share our bread with friends and neighbors, and other people. I am thankful for each single day, for the bright sun, the gentle rain, the night's embrace and the guiding stars.

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!

PRODUCT REVIEW: XTREME HOME Coffee Machine XH-ESCM

Most of us (Filipinos) have discovered the passion to make a nice cup of coffee especially during the lockdown last year. Remember the Dalgona craze at the onset of the pandemic? From then on, coffee has become a part of our pandemic lifestyle, and this include having a coffee corner at home. 

Bolzico Beef To Go via GrabFood

Since last year, when the Covid-19 pandemic took over the world and made everything stop, most people (me included) resorted to food delivery as it is safer than going to the restaurant, grocery, or market to buy food. One such favorite delivery app is GrabFood.
