of food + music

“Food is music to the body, music is food to the heart.” ~ Gregory David Roberts

If there is one thing both food and music have in common, it has got to be that they both offer nourishment to our body. Food gives us all the nutrients, vitamins and minerals that we need to do our day-to-day activities, not to mention the endless satisfaction while downing those mouth-watering dishes, whereas music functions much like fuel that keeps our hearts and souls going.

There’s no wonder why if you’d ask around, food and music will probably rate amongst the top things that most people enjoy. We love eating good food as much as we enjoy losing ourselves in the strings and strains that exceptional Roland spun to create a beautiful song.

Oh well, today is yet another day to enjoy the best of this worlds! Happy eating! ^_^

foodie loot from gastronomy by joy

food, foodie loot

I won this giveaway at Gastronomy by Joy a few months back. I was not able to get my prize as I wasn’t available to go to Manila during the time Joy was doling out the loots. It was a good thing she agreed to hand-carry my prize on the previous event we both attended late last year. I finally got my prize!

The food items included in my loot are: 2 packs of chocolate desserts {which I totally love}, several packs of Maggi Magic Meals {which I have yet to try}, a number of powder juice drinks, a couple of Clara Olè salad dressings, an assortment of spices which I can use for cooking.

If I will be lucky to win a number of these food giveaways, I should make sure I have extra under drawer slides to stash these items away! 😉

Thank you so much Joy for my delicious loots! ^_^

spice up your life

food musings, spices

One of my goals for the new year 2013 is to spend more time in the kitchen. I am no good in cooking and there were only too few dishes I can prepare, but since I also aim to eat healthy this year, and instill that habit on my little man, too, and curb on eating fast food, it only means I have to prepare more home-cooked meals. Am a miserable cook and every time is just hit-and-miss! That is why I really think spices are such god-sends. They work wonders in spicing up my dishes and my life!

Late last year I started grabbing a spice bottle whenever I take a trip to the grocers, I am hoping to build up my spice collection this year, too! And even when I had to figure out how to use most of them on my dishes, I’d still agree that they are the perfect addition to my diminutive kitchen.

Oh well, I guess I have to read more about spices and where to use them as soon as I am done reading this article on how to order cigars online. 😉

Which spices are your favorite and why?
