I’m sorry I haven’t been around lately. By around, I mean cooking and sharing with you what’s boiling in the stove or bubbling in the oven. I don’t think I’ve done much cooking in the last ten days. I’ve been mostly eating out, attending events, or having unhealthy nightly food binging with sis. Man, I need some healthy eats! It’s just hard to come up with something healthy. Days have been hectic lately and I think it’s gonna continue to be hectic in the next couple of months.
The house construction is doing good. They’ve managed to tear down some of the existing walls and have put up new ones in other places. Sis jokingly asked me if they have a wrecking ball in there because she wants to borrow it and sing Wrecking Ball a la Miley Cyrus..LOL! Crazy sis I’ve got here.
Ykaie and I are watching GRIMM like crazy. She saw the Aswang episode and because she has this really strong preference for any show with monsters, she instantly became a fan. She even told me later last week that she has a “crush” on Nick Burkhardt! I guess she kinda sees him as a hero because he can see and he kills bad Wesens (monsters).
I’ve been swamped with work the past few days and I’ve been trying to finish some task. We are going out of town tomorrow but we’ll be back on friday night. Our destination? Pampanga and La Union. I guess I’ll just be saying hi to you from there through Instagram. I’ll try to update my blog but I doubt if I can. I know I’ll be too tired from driving. This trip is supposed to be for peanutbutter♥‘s vacation. We’re supposed to take turns driving…but the date of his vacay changed. Sis already booked and paid for this trip and couldn’t cancel.
I’m planning to low carb and portion control my way into losing weight (again) by next week. Wish me luck. That’s where my problem lies — in portion control. Sis and I wanted to try one of those 1,200-calorie diet delivery services but they don’t deliver in Caloocan area. I already asked around but I haven’t had much luck.
So why are we here again?
Oh right, the Kamias Shake.
I had my first Kamias Shake last year when we went to Cebu and ate at Zubuchon. It was the perfect palate cleanser when you’ve had too much fat and oil from the lechon (roasted pig). I fell in love with it because it has the perfect balance of tart and sweet.
Today, I made one simply because we had too much Kamias from my MIL’s tree in Malabon. Ykaie can only eat so much Kamias and I’ve yet to come up with time to make it into candy.
Or was I just looking for an excuse so I can tell myself it’s okay to eat Lechon Kawali (deep fried pork belly) today?
- 5 pieces of Kamias
- Sugar syrup to taste
- crushed ice
- Put Kamias in a blender and pulse until smooth.
- Add crushed ice and 2 tbsp sugar syrup then pulse again.
