I Can't Eat...

I have a lot of friends and i can definitely say that they are all considering me as their shoulder to cry on or at least someone they can talk to and listen to their emotional roller-coaster kinda love. Some says "I've been through a lot and by far this is the most challenging relationship i have ever had, I cannot function correctly, I cannot think straight, I think I'm gonna die, Its the end of the world!" Those are the statements I can understand because i said that myself, but there's this one statement that I don't know if its true. "I CAN'T EAT".

I love food (well that's why this blog is existing), I love making people happy with my food, I love satisfying the cravings of the people around me with my food, I like people appreciating the food I serve, I love exploring different cultures to help me be more exposed and knowledgeable and apply it on my recipes. That's why I don't know if i will ever say that 3 words.

In my 29 years of existence, I have been through a lot specially being with someone you love. There are happy moments and of course there are break ups. This past few weeks I've been emotional drained with whats happening with my life. There are a lot of things occurring at the same time and it really hits you hard (sagad to the bones). Its hard to wake up in the morning, lazy to go to work, do nothing in the office, cry all day, go home and stare at the walls then  YOU CANNOT EAT. There I said it "I CANNOT EAT".  Like what I mentioned, I don't understand this statement because it is hard to believe that you cannot eat the entire day. Your body needs fuel to go on with your life and daily routine but i experienced it myself. "Ganun pala ang feeling nun" you tried eating the food that you like, you tried ordering in your favorite restaurants, you tried going out with friends to help you get that appetite but there's no chance on finishing that food served to you. EVERYTHING tastes bitter, you cant even swallow it and there are times that you just wanna throw up and cry. You don't feel hungry at all even though that you haven't eaten anything yet, you don't feel hungry, you don't feel putting anything in your mouth (literally).

This is for the people who loved and who is loving someone so badly that they will give everything to make that person happy and were able to manage to get through the ups and downs of the relationship, I salute and commend you! It is hard, I know, you just have to experience this to help you become a stronger person and shape you as an individual to love unconditionally.

Garlic Shrimp in Sun-dried Tomato

We scheduled another date, like what we used to do. I want this to be different since we are always looking for a restaurant to have a nice lunch or dinner. So i decided to surprise him. Early morning I went to the market to get something to prepare for him as a surprise. 

I don't know which one, I don't know what he might like. I just know that he really like shrimp, actually he likes prawns better but since I cant find any, I went for shrimp instead. 

So I planned on being safe to make sure he will like it. Grabbed the following:
  • Lots of Shrimp of course
  • Sun-dried Tomatoes (bottled)
  • Garlic
  • Olive Oil
  • Pasta
I prepared the shrimp first while boiling the water for the pasta. Once done sauteed lots of garlic in olive oil until golden brown. Then took the bottle of sun-dried tomatoes and got like 5 pieces, i think per piece is a whole of 1 tomato. Cut it in to strips and sauteed it with the garlic, after few seconds I added the shrimp until its cooked. 

I found these new spices in the market, White Pepper Corn and Italian Herbs from All Natural, I find this great cos it comes with a grinder so you wont feel the dried leaves or pepper corns mixed with your pasta. I added these two with salt just to add flavors to the sauteed shrimp.

Here you go!

So I packed it and then he called. I cant help but tell him that I cooked something for him and he's too excited to try. Then we met, unexpectedly, he also cooked something for me. He prepared Igado! Been craving for that too. 

He liked the simplicity of the pasta yet very flavorful. I am glad he liked it. :)
