Been Concocting a Few Edibles

Nope, I’m not crazy about cooking. But delicious food here cost a fortune. Since I’ve been craving and dreaming of food night and day after my weight loss, I decided to try my hand at cooking and food preparation while I’ve got time to spare. I looked into the recipes I filed a long long time ago and consulted YouTube for this mission. Also, I availed of much cheaper ingredients. Have had moderate success with spaghetti, cheeseburger, pizza, french toast, and the local dish adobo. Failed miserably at my cinnamon venture (I’ve been jonesing for Cinnabon). No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t make the dough. So for pizza, I ended up buying store-kneaded ones.

If you buy restaurant pizza, toppings are minimal you basically just get bread. I wish I had done this much sooner. Though mine still needed improvement: Should’ve added more tomato sauce and quickmelt cheese. It was fine bcz the reasonably-priced dough tasted good.
My very 1st try. It was exciting 🤩
Macaroni and onions. Not bad. I’ve always loved pasta. I put butter, mayo, and sprinkled a little salt. Mmmm…
Famous Filipino dish: adobo. Delectable.
My fruitcake attempt. I don’t have an oven so I steamed it. Well, not a good idea coz the flour simply expanded. It was a pleasure nevertheless — the fruit cocktail and the whiskey I had poured in it provided flavor, even though I don’t drink at all.
My inferior version of tiramisu. It was yummy for me by reason of the substantial condensed milk in the mixture. Ha ha. My sweet tooth…

I wasn’t able to take photos of the spag and cheeseburger. Next time I will.

Yeah yeah, I’ve yielded to these sinful gustatory pleasures. But since I’ve gotten quite skinny due to intermittent fasting and low-carb consumption, I figured I’d just go back to starving myself after such decadence.
