I love weekends.

Weekends seems to be the only days wherein you get to extend your sleep, cheat on your meals, and do your laundry.

However, this weekend still doesn’t do much for me since I’m still being attacked by this vicious cough and colds. I feel like sleeping through the day even though I just had a complete night’s sleep. The thing is I have errands to run and chores to do — shucks, I have a mountain of laundry waiting for me! I am, however, not doing that mountain of laundry. I will go out and run a few errands.

Hopefully, I get my some energy back even though I’m not doing some exercises. Eating healthy even has to take a backseat because everything tastes like cardboard the last few days. I lean towards sweeter and saltier food because my tastebuds were craving for taste more than anything else. My clogged nose had me eating many spicy instant cup noodles…

I needed the hugs of savory comfort food to help me get through the day.

Today, it’s a plateful of Pancit Malabon that did it for me. It’s the only thing that didn’t taste like cardboard. I was thinking maybe because Pancit Malabon is familiar as it always graces our table when there’s a special occasion. Whatever the reason is, I don’t really care, I’m just glad I’m able to taste it.

This afternoon, I’m planning to make a list of Fall recipes for next month. I haven’t even started on my Halloween recipes yet because of this dang colds but I’ll get to it… hopefully by monday.

Pancit Malabon is true blue Filipino noodles. It originated in Malabon City, an area where fresh seafood is abundant. That is why seafood is the dominant flavor in this dish specially fish and shrimp…sometimes squid is also added to make it more flavorful.
