"I'm Stuffed!" Shrimp @ Bubba Gump

For my birthday last year, my husband surprised me with a trip to Gatlinburg, Tennessee We explored the place the whole day and had our lunch at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. 

Being the seafood lover that I always am, the place was just perfect. I don't only love the food, I love the ambiance as well and the decor was just awesome. It would surely remind you of the movie Forrest Gump. And if you love the movie, you would love the restaurant, without a doubt.

Here's my plate of "I'm Stuffed!" Shrimp. Can you say how yummy it was? (",)

Thai Fried Rice

Fried rice is definitely one of my favorite foods to eat either for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I can actually have it for a day of meal starting from breakfast up to dinner. I can have it for snack too if there are still enough left. That's how I love it.

And I am not particular when it comes to what kind of fried rice it is because basically, they almost all have the same ingredients although for a fact, not all are cooked as delicious as the others.

I wasn't planning to have Thai fried rice that day but the opportunity was there. We were witnessing the annual festival here in the city when my tummy started to grumble and the first thing my eyes saw was this - Thai fried rice from the food cart. So there was no second thoughts at all. Gotta grab it!

Hubby bought it for me and it was so yummy. And the serving was huge enough for my small tummy that I had leftovers for breakfast the next day. Now I am drooling.

Filipino Macaroni Salad

It was one of those days that my mouth was craving for something and that time around, it was looking for something that I used to have back home in the Philippines...Filipino Macaroni Salad!

Although I've mastered the "art" of making it back home, I still checked for a recipe on Pinterest because I know that not all ingredients that I used there can be found or available here.

Found me one recipe, and here you go. So delish even the husband loved it.

I used the shell shape pasta (cooked according to package instructions), then I put mayonnaise with chunks of cheddar cheese, shredded carrots and dill relish. I seasoned it with salt and pepper and done! YUM!

He's Turning into a Young Man

Twelve more days to go before our son's 11th birthday and I think all is set for his celebration. We've already shopped for the clothes that he's going to wear on his special day and the next day where in we are going to take him on an educational trip which I am sure he's going to love.

Hubby already has gotten him a gift and I've already ordered mine. The only thing we're going to purchase on his day or maybe the day before it is his cake with candles as big as a snowball microphone. That would be so cute, wouldn't it?

I'm still thinking though if I am going to have it custom-made or just get one from what they already have on display. I got him a ready-made one last year and it wasn't only pretty, it was on sale too. That's a win-win right there.

Let's see if I will get lucky again this year. I am excited for his birthday and so is he. We all can't wait.

Lunch Date Once Again

Remember about that lunch date that me and the hubs had? That was on a Friday. And on the Monday following that, we had another lunch date. If you recall, Hubby didn't have work that Friday because of the inventory they were doing at work. His colleagues had to do that until Monday so needless to say, they didn't have work again that day.

With that, we grabbed the chance once again and went for another lunch date. The little kiddo was in school of course but we did get him some too which he had for dinner.

This time around, we went Chinese. I love Chinese food. We don't have Filipino restaurant here in the city and I believe it is the closest I can get. The spices are almost the same when it comes to Asian foods.
