Missing The Warm Weather Already

How do you like this cold weather so far? As I’ve mentioned in my previous posts, I am not fond of cold weather at all. This cold weather makes my knees hurt, hahaha. Maybe it sounds funny, but it’s true! I’m probably too young to say that my knees hurt, but in cold weather like this, it does hurt. It also makes me feel sleepy all the time. Not only that, this cold weather makes me tired and also makes me want to have Pho every day. Hmmm, I need to learn how to cook Pho to save me $15.00 per order (big bowl). This Pho from Bangkok Spice, located in West Monroe, tasted good! Every time we dine-in or ordering on the phone, I always get the Pho. Sometimes I added crispy rolls to go with my Pho. In the meantime, I’ll have to keep me warm until this cold weather is over. Cause everyone else in the house except me is loving this cold weather so far.

It’s not even Winter yet, and here I am already missing Summer. My body is active, more energetic, and stronger on warmer days. In colder days, I feel weak, achy, tired, and lazy. There you go, I laid them all out. I’m sure, I’m not the only one dealing this dilemma.

My question to you is, “How is this cold weather affects your body?”

Dinner With Friends: Melanie & Elvie

Thank God, after six days straight work, finally, it’s my day off. Good thing, it’s my friend – ate Melanie’s day off as well. Also, Elvie was out of work a little early. So, we had the chance for a quick get together dinner at our place. I used to work with them before, and we frequently had Filipino dinner on our days off. However, since I’m working now in a different place, it’s so hard for us to do this frequently because of our different work schedules. Finally, we did it yesterday! Besides, it was my sister’s 41st birthday yesterday (November 5th – Philippines time).

Thank you, Ate Melanie and Elvie, for coming over in such short notice. We appreciate your company. Thanks to little Gwyneth for entertaining us all!

Thanks, Elvie for the Key Lime Pie.
Thanks, El, for the ice cream.
Thanks to Helen Paragas for the shrimp.

Scrumptious Lunch Date at El Paso Mexican Grill

My family loves El Paso Mexican Grill. This restaurant is one of our go-to restaurants to dine. They have two locations in the Twin Cities. One is located in West Monroe and the other one (bigger one) is located on Highway 165 in the Monroe area.

Every time we dine at El Paso I always order my most preferred meal, it’s called Beef Arrachera. Trust me, this one is so good! Also, my first-line refreshment is the non-alcoholic Mango Daiquiri. So tasty!

Beef Arrachera:

If you choose Beef Arrachera you’ll get: Grilled Sirloin Steak served over Onions with Rice, Charro Beans, Guacamole and Flour or Corn Tortillas. The Charro Beans are so amazing with the good sized ratio of bacon and sausage to beans and the savory broth! And the steak? I always cut the steak in half because it’s a little too much for me, that being said, I always take the rest home with me to devour when I get hungry.

Chicken Fajitas

Sean usually always orders the Chicken Fajitas. We called it “A.K.A deliciousness.” It’s very delicious and it’s a lot of chicken for such an affordable price (presyo).

So, if you happen to know one in your area but haven’t tried their food yet, you probably need to give it a try and let me know what you think. I would love to hear your feedback too.

What is your go-to restaurant?
