Shrimp Scampi

Shrimp Scampi is a perfect weeknight meal you can make in under 30 minutes but elegant enough for company! It is rich with the flavors of shrimp, garlic, and butter.

Shrimp Scampi

In four days, I managed to empty the big plastic jar that contains the Dates and Almond Granola I made last friday. I’m trying to limit my intake of sweets and while I was trying to avoid cookies and biscuits and chocolates — I was perpetually craving for something I could munch on. I was telling myself it was healthy… next thing I knew, I was holding an empty tub. Oh well.

I think this is partially related to my adjustment period over peanutbutter going back to a nightly work schedule. I am so used to him being around me the whole day and helping around the house. Now that he’s working, I miss sleeping beside him at night and I absolutely miss him helping me with the household chores.

During weekdays, Ykaie sleeps beside me. This gives us plenty of mother-daughter bonding and heart to heart talks before going to bed. She sleeps back to her room during weekends when it’s her daddy’s day off.

Anyway, one of the things I love doing years back was prepare peanutbutter‘s lunch baon at work. I actually have a category in this blog way back in 2009 called peanutbutter♥’s lunch. Something I came up with because I wanted to document what I lovingly prepare for him. Like this Bagoong Rice, Alaminos LongSiLog, and the ugliest bento I’ve ever seen..LOL!

These days, he said he didn’t want heavy lunches to bring at work, so what I do is prepare sandwiches for him instead. Yesterday, I made Shrimp Scampi Spaghetti for early dinner and that’s also what he brought for lunch at work. He loved it! I’m thinking I should bring back the peanutbutter‘s lunch portion here in my blog.

Cream-O Brownie Crunch

Cream-O Brownie Crunch

Have you tried the new Jack ‘N Jill Cream-O Brownie Crunch? I’m sure all you Creamoholics already did.

To those who hasn’t tried it, Jack ‘n Jill Cream-O Brownie Crunch is the latest innovation from Universal Robina Corporation (URC) that is a different take on the usual brownies. It’s tastes like brownies only it’s crunchy, crispy, and highly addictive!

I am a certified Creamoholic and I couldn’t put down a bag of this once opened. I know, I know. I should totally avoid sweets as per my doctor’s but I couldn’t help it — so I just limit myself to one to two pieces per day.

Cream-O Brownie Crunch comes in two variants: Choco Chips and Crunchy Peanut Thins. It comes in re-sealable packages too perfect on the go. You won’t need to worry about it spilling inside your bag.

Open a bag of this and you’ll instantly smell it’s brownie goodness, Cream-O Brownie Crunch Choco Chips has double chocolate. Aside from being chocolate flavored, it also has lots of chocolate chips.

For those who wants more nutty favor on their brownie crunch, then I recommend Cream-O Brownie Crunch Peanut Thins. It’s brownie crisps filled with peanuts!
