I miss eating home cooked meals! Even though I know how to cook, there are times when I'm too lazy to cook my own food. That's why I end up eating out A LOT. Don't get me wrong, I love cooking. It's a good stress reliever for me, especially if I have complete ingredients and tools. But when you're cooking for yourself, it kinda gets too depressing. This is why I often have food delivered to me.
But I can't live on fried fast food alone. And of course, I can't afford to eat out in expensive gourmet restaurants all the time! So I try to make up by balancing my eating habits by cooking my meals. To make the experience more favorable, I have decided to invite some friends over to eat with me. I know my friends are also tired of eating unhealthy food that's why I decided to invite them over for a quiet and simple meal at home.
My friends also miss eating home cooked meals so I decided to cook Linutik or Latik and Fried Fish. I still have so much more to discover about home cooked Filipino meals but I think these 2 are a start.
Meet my friend from College, Jesna. It is my challenge to make her eat vegetables because she does not like them. While she is in Manila, I will try my best to make her love vegetables too! :) Challenge accepted!

Marga arrived and invited us to eat ice cream. But after a few minutes of walking, I invited them to go to Music 21 instead. If you're in the mood to sing your heart out, Music 21 is a must visit! They only charge P84/person/hour. Plus they continually update their songs.
I plan to make home cooking for my friends a weekly or bi-monthly thing. I've started to discover my passion for cooking once again but I don't plan on going through another culinary school to get an affirmation that I truly can cook! Like I said, I love to cook for my friends and family. I'll just keep it at that. :)
