After a year of making a mental note to go, I finally went to the Salcedo community market last Saturday and I am sooooooo coming back!
I was so engrossed with each stall that I forgot I brought my camera with me so I can take pictures! Next time (next saturday? hehe!), I'll take pictures!
My sister, Francine laughed at me when I bought potted herbs again--basil and mint. I've been on a potted herbs buying spree since last week (I've got dill, parsley, oregano, thyme, rosemary and basil). Francine says its such a sign of motherhood and old age and she would probably end up giving me orchids on my next birthday (I turned 28 last week!).
But it's true. Here are the signs:
1. I've been cooking, cooking and cooking. 2. My love for food blogs! (Marketmanila, Dessert Comes First, Pinoycook) 3. I'm always searching for recipes online. 4. I'm always looking forward to trips to the market--as in palengke ha. 5. I was planning on switching cable companies last December because Sky Cable is so expensive but decided not to when I realized I would not have the Lifestyle Network anymore. 6. Favorite shows on the Lifestyle Network: Barefoot Contessa (gawd I loovvee her!!!), Everyday Italian, Iron Chef America, 30 minute meals, Rachael Ray Show, Emeril Live (he can be annoying), Food 911 with Tyler Florence (hottie!) and Boy meets Grill with Bobby Flay . 7. Last Christmas, I asked my mom for a food processor. She said, "Wag na. May mga katulong ka naman." Hello, hindi naman si Wolverine yung helpers namin. hehehe! 8. I jumped for joy when V fixed our turbo roaster. 9. I want an oven that works because I want to learn how to bake. 10. I've been looking for a really good kitchen knife. 11. And a nice wooden chopping board!
See? Nanay na nga talaga ako! And that's okay, because I want Joaquin to grow up and be able to say that his mom is the best cook. I feel that way about mine :)
Have a wonderful week!

Loves the beach, wishes she had more time and money to travel, recently got hooked to
climbing mountains, reads anything she can get her hands on, frustrated writer, adores her
3-year-old Lhasa Apso, Tashi,
constantly needs caffeine, wonders when she'll quit smoking, and will most
likely die due to liver complications from drinking too much (if the cigarettes
doesn't get to her lungs first). Can't live without accessories especially
big, dangling earrings, shoe freak (aren't we all?), sucker for discovering
hole-in-the-wall restaurants, will ingest anything spicy, enjoys giving and receiving
massages, addicted to Friends, Sex and the City and CSI, goes gaga over kids, dreams of
being alone with Jim Morrison and smoking a joint with Bob
Marley. Would love to party with Gwen Stefani, shop with Patricia Field, write poetry with
Maya Angelou and have Sting, Nelson Mandela, Mark Twain and Bono over for
