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! ^_^

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?
