Dairy? Hot Pepper Jack cheese and sour cream, Check!
Junk Food? Corn chips, Check! (Yeah because I'm a dirty little devil like that!)
Check out the taco salad that I prepared for lunch:
And yes, I wiped the plate clean all by myself!
So yeah, you might have noticed my shopping and fashion posts are dwindling by the minute. Its just that going out or surfing the net just makes me want to spend spend spend! You know, you see things you absolutely have to have. The kind where you can't sleep because you start thinking of how that one last article of clothing or that one final accessory will elevate your wardrobe to a whole higher level. Then you find yourself buying it, and as soon as you get it, you realize there is another thing you just absolutely NEED. Really, the cycle of covetousness never ends.
Hence, I find myself focusing my energy in the kitchen instead. I kinda like it though. Gives me a sense of accomplishment in a way. I mean, Dear Hubby pretty much primed himself on living on a diet of pizza, Dinty Moore beef stew, greasy fastfood burgers and Chinese take out. But no, I told him I will be preparing all our meals by scratch! Of course it was a struggle at first because he knew that I never ever cooked so he probably thought he would be eating tasteless cardboard-y dinners. But well, I changed his mind as soon as I prepared my first experimental recipe! Hahaha! Yeah, watching Wok With Yan and Nora Daza on TV when I was little surely paid off! I've always liked watching people do their thing in the kitchen, so I guess I kinda absorbed all their tricks into my system! ;)
Although, preparing a salad isn't exactly cooking. Heehee!
Anyway, while running errands this afternoon, I found myself dropping by the local Old Navy. Again. Because I'm really liking their safari inspired pieces...not that I'm buying or anything. I just find it comforting to window shop. Weird I know...
