Red Velvet Yogurt!

Have you tried Golden Spoon's Red Velvet Frozen Yogurt? You must. It's so yummy and it tastes even better when you're having it with a loved one. I hear each 4 oz cup is about 25 to 29 calories. I didn't care, it was delicious. When my daughter Danielle gave me a spoonful from her cup I had to get one for myself. I made my wife try it and she took my cup, and the rest of the 25 calories.

Bufffalo Flaming Wings

There is a new chicken wings joint on the block. Check it out-- Flaming Wings, New York Buffalo wings is along Katipunan in White Plains. Call 7381263.

When I was a student in Ithaca, New York, I enjoyed my weekends immensely. I could sleep in and wake up and drive to a street lined with a variety of fast-food joints that I loved patronizing.
At one of the regular places I would visit, I would order a double beef burger plus an additional two orders of fried clams sandwich (without the bun), some fries and sauce tartare on the side. At another joint—KFC, or Kentucky Fried Chicken then—I always ordered an eight-piece dark meat combo. It only offered the regular kind, since the crispy kind hadn’t been invented yet. Once, I asked if they had wings; during those days wings were almost always given away, since they were not part of the menu. Here, the wings were being sold at a cheap 10 cents a piece....

This is what I consider as value for money- A delicious and satisfying meal. We were a family of 5, all full and still had some to take home. I think I'll go back there soon.

Happy New Year!

Welcoming the new year with food bingeing–and weight loss... 


...New Year's eve at Tali beach was mesmerizing. We dined al fresco. Tonichi, my interior designer par excellence brother-in-law had an impressive table setup of fine linen, crystals, silver and more than two dozen candles in front of the pool. The panoramic view of the ocean, the sound of the surf, the waves, and the bright crescent moon shining its light on the sea was absolutely spellbinding. With a cool breeze carrying mellow Christmas tunes and the people you care for most on this earth with you, what else can beat that?

Our menu consisted of pica-pica food, such as olives stuffed with chorizo, olives stuffed with anchovies, Hamon Serrano, caviar pie, a variety of Spanish cold cuts, and bottles of good red and white wine.

For main, we had toasted chorizo from Terry’s and authentic Spanish Fabada, or baked beans, which were simply outstanding with French bread. There was an assortment of cheeses and grapes, apples and oranges.

Dining outdoors allowed us a front-seat view as we watched two homes from the village exchange a spectacular show of dazzling fireworks that lasted until the wee hours of the morning. At the stroke of midnight, a bottle of champagne popped! Welcome 2012!

My daughter Ali summoning the moon and it's phosphorescence to complete the mood.
