Grocery shopping is my thing. While most people find going to the supermarket a bore and a chore, for me it is an adventure; something that I find quite therapeutic. I enjoy taking my time going down each aisle, making sure I tick off everything on my grocery list. It’s always fun until my seven-year-old starts complaining that she’s hungry or tired, then it turns into a mad dash to get all the stuff we need so we can be out within minutes.
That’s why it’s always a treat when supermarkets have something to keep all members of the family happy.
There’s no denying that we love The Yumbox. I write and post about it often, because it really is our choice of lunchbox. That’s why when BrightBrands PH invited Zoë and I to the first ever Yumbox Workshop last Saturday, we just had to go. We knew it would be the perfect activity for some mother-daughter bonding, and we definitely weren’t disappointed.
Mothers need a break from motherhood once in a while. We shouldn’t feel guilty about asking for a bit of time off. No, it’s not being selfish. We need a break, not to get away from the kids, or to escape our responsibilities and the long list of household chores that need tackling, but we must in order to recharge. Sometimes all we need is an hour or two away to unwind and let loose, in order for us to come back a more happy and loving mother.
Two weeks ago, I finally got the mommy break that I needed over a #HappyLunch at CDP Global Table. Together with some Mothers Who Brunch friends, we shared stories of our motherhood highs and lows, while trying dish after dish of mouth-watering goodness.
When it comes to my kitchen and pantry staples, there are a couple of brands that I have trusted for years. One of them, a brand that I’ve seen my mother use in her own kitchen, is McCormick. From quick-cooking dishes, to feasts that would take hours to prepare, McCormick has always played a role in making our homemade meals special.
McCormick’s Flavor Nation Festival, held last May 13, brought the flavors of East Asia to life, as they launched their latest: Agemono Fry Set and Dipping Sauce. We got to try some authentic Japanese dishes, cooked using the fry sets and sauces, and saw for ourselves how easy they are to recreate in our our own homes.
A week ago, Michelle and Sabrina of Mothers Who Brunch invited some mothers to a gastronomic tour of some of Evia Lifestyle Center‘s food establishments. During In The Mood Food Crawl, we ate our way through seven restaurants, laughed and shared some stories along the way, and learned a few recipes that we could easily whip up for a romantic Valentine’s at home.
