Restaurant hopping

With so many restaurants popping up around town, it’s so hard to decide which type of food to try every weekend. I came up with a plan and decided that we would go restaurant hopping. We would try a little of the food here and there and make a decision based on the few dishes we tried. There were more places that made us cringe than smile and polish off our plates. It’s really easy to make your food bland or really overpowering if you don’t watch your ingredients. A lot of curries, especially, have become watered down. I’m starting to think that maybe hopping from one restaurant to another isn’t such a great idea. It’s much easier for me to buy some fresh vegetables and meat and whip up something that has much more flavor.

Winter blues

It’s finally starting to feel like fall! The weather is gray, the fog is out and about, and the clock has been set back by an hour. Of course I’m taking this wonderful opportunity to bake some cookies to get the house warm and toast. I’m thinking of cookies with a lot of chocolate. It’s probably because I don’t have hot chocolate and I really need some now.

I’ve been getting a lot of suggestions to cook noodles and soup. It’s the best thing for the coldest days. Imagine a steaming hot bowl of chicken broth and noodles served with spinach and garlic, ready to be slurped up by you. Yum… I think I might have to make some tomorrow.

Good weather

The weather has been strangely nice these days. The sun has been hiding behind the clouds and allowing the hot temperatures to cool. It was a nice day to give my car a bath and so I did. I didn’t have to wear a big hat or big sunglasses and deal with a flapping umbrella above my head. I could just enjoy the wind and cloudy skies without thinking about whether my sunblock was working or not. Now my car is sparkling clean and I’m loving every second of this cool weather. A win-win situation if you ask me!

Silly

I can’t help but notice how more and more of the food that eateries serve these days at exorbitant prices are stuff that I can cook at home with very little effort and don’t taste half as good. What that says to me is that either people these days can’t cook, or are too lazy. But cooking is so easy and fun. Why wouldn’t anyone want to cook? Puzzling, ain’t it?

A waste of time and money

Restaurants that serve all-day breakfasts seem to be sprouting up everywhere. Yet we’ve not been to any. To me, breakfast should rightfully be the simplest meal of the day and eaten at home. I don’t believe in dragging myself out first thing in the morning to a breakfast that I can so easily make at home. It’s simply a waste of time and money. But that’s just me.
