New Food Treats in Carnivale, Taguig

A couple of weeks ago, me and a friend were invited to the launch of Carnivale, the latest food market venue at McKinley Hill, Taguig. After some difficult navigation hazards to get there, we finally walked the last few meters to The Venice Piazza Mall inside McKinley Hill where we found the food market abuzz with a lot of people.

A lot of us bloggers we're late getting there but we we're still able to take pictures of the food and get to taste the food thanks to the generous Ian who attended to all of us bloggers. I was also glad to get to know new bloggers and see familiar faces among those who attended.

Natural Sore Throat Remedy: Ilog Maria Honey Propolis Throat Spray

It's the "brrrr" months and cough and colds are common especially since our weather recently has been driving us crazy with chilly mornings and warm afternoons or sunny mornings and rainy afternoons.

The embarrassment of having to excuse yourself to indulge in a coughing fit or to not have time to excuse yourself at all, is just as inconvenient as the coughing fit itself. Add to that the scratchy throat and watery eyes as evidence of your "barking" episode and people suddenly move their distance when communicating with you.

Veggie Pancakes and Tortilla Wraps for Lunch

Sometimes I grow tired of eating rice and I want something as filling but not rice. The same feeling struck me one time at home when preparations for lunch time was already beginning. I didn't want to eat rice again because I'm sure I'll be eating it again for dinner. So, I took a quick survey of my makeshift pantry and checked out possible alternatives. I was happy to have found one, two in fact, from the previous dinner's leftovers.

My vegan lunch!

I had some mock meat made of beans and some tortilla wraps. I also had some carrots and potatoes and some wholewheat flour. So I turned my beans into filling for my tortillas adding just a dollop of mustard when I reheated it to amp up the flavor. I've also tried this with tomato ketchup and with hot sauce so choose the level of kick you like.
