(Dec. 9-15 and 16-22)
There were new addition to our lives in these past two weeks.
First, my parents got back from Spain on the 12th. I was aching to have a spoonful of old, familiar and oh-so-loved cooking of my Mama!
On the 14th, my eldest sister finally got hitched! Months of preparation had finally materialized to reality. We got a taste of Ilocano tradition from the groom’s family. My new brother-in-law, on the past couple of months had introduced us to a variety of food from their hometown. I guess the merging of two families has also brought with it the introduction of another culinary feat.
On the 17th, I bought these chocolate-covered macadamia nuts from the airport and gosh, it’s the most sinfully good things that you could ingest! It’s a bit costly but me and the people I shared it with positively LOVED it. So much so, I wasn’t able to bring some anymore the way I intended to.
This is what life is all about: new flavors, new delights!
