Who wants to know what happens in a day in the life of ..... Lia?
People have this perception just because I do not work in a regular office that I do not do anything. I do work from my home. Imagine that I am housewife without a husband and kids. Hahahahaha! Does that make me a "house" only?
It surprises me sometimes because I barely have time for myself. I have numerous activities and they are mostly centered on food and ...... cooking, which is my absolute passion.
I attended a cooking demo at the Bel-Air Park today. The guest chefs were Jason Stacy and Joey Herrera, instructors at the ISCAHM.
Chef Jason was telling us about passion in cooking. I could totally relate to what he was saying.
I do learn a lot from the chefs in the cooking demos that I attend whenever I could. I am going to make the Roast Chicken this Saturday for my family. The chicken was soaked in a brine solution before roasting. I am excited to experiment.
Chef Jason showed us how to make Creole Braised Pork.
Chef Joey demonstrated how to truss up a chicken and how to cook Rice and Broccoli Casserole au Gratin.
Of course, there was food tasting after the demo.
I could not wait to get home .... I wanted to cook already.
Dra. Tricia ordered Fried Lumpiang Ubod and Paella from me.
I also made Chicken Curry for PD and Hermie.
I went to Rustan's Rockwell because I discovered Hermie used the carrots yesterday for our sotanghon soup. I also went to Santis and bought a different kind of fresh sausage.
I ate it with spicy brown mustard and potato chips.
I am eating all the carbs I can before Jing and I embark on a new restrictive lifestyle on November 1.
It seems I was not the only one who wanted to eat Ruffles.
But I did not give him.
Earlier in the day, for brunch, I just had Tapsilog with Ubod achara from Mon. I really love the Homemade Beef Tapa recipe that Mona taught me. http://liasfoodjourney.blogspot.com/2012/07/homemade-beef-tapa.html
So easy to make... no preservatives. Plus.... it is not a sweet kind of tapa.
See? It is already 11 p.m. and I am still writing this post. I have not even showered yet.
This was a very typical day for me.
I am not complaining .... I love what I am doing!
