Homebound: October 2012

Once a month we go home and visit our folks in Kawit Cavite. It is always a delight for us to breathe some provincial air and have some homecooked meals prepared by MIL. The hour drive usually gives hubby and I time to catch up with topics we do not get to discuss on our daily talks. R&R is what it is...Praise the Lord of Sabbath!

Here is a quick snapshot as we enter the boundary of Kawit via Cavitex.

As usual, Mommy Zee (MIL) is busy in the kitchen. We will be having our lunch and dinner there. For the first meal it was the homey tinolang manok then during the evening hubby assisted her in preparing roasted chicken with mashed potato.

Home-cooked meals

Where was I during all of these? Dozing off of course! Guilty as charged...I am practically useless in the kitchen. But this family that now I belong to loves to cook. They just enjoy discussing procedures and ingredients. I would listen to it like a foreign language and would just eat the sumptous meals they prepared. Kanya-kanyang giftings lang naman yan galing kay God. So clearly, this is not my gift.

We headed back to Makati pretty stuffed as usual with our take home bag of rice cake or malagkit. Better watch out Samala Rice Cake, MIL just perfected this Pinoy dessert.
