Breezy Missy Meals: Spaghetti Aglio Olio with Spicy Shrimp

Zane and I used to live from two different cities which means we fly in and out of our respective hometowns to see each other at least once a month to spend time together and when we actually do, we usually spend it by dining out because we felt that cooking at home will take up too much of our precious little time.

In 2010, a week before we spent our first Valentine’s Day together, we decided to celebrate it at home and I offered to cook for her. She was very surprised with my idea since she didn’t know then that I cook. When she asked me what I will cook, I told her she would have to wait until V Day because it was a surprise and it wouldn’t be a surprise anymore had she known what I’ll prepare. The truth was, I couldn’t think of any recipe on top of my head when she asked me that question. It wasn’t until I was already on my 1-hour flight from Manila to Dumaguete City when I had a light bulb moment and remembered this simple spaghetti aglio olio recipe from a local food magazine. Zane swears by that it’s the best pasta recipe she ever tasted (okay, she may be a bit biased but… oh well…). Since then, she would always ask me to make this simple pasta recipe for her when we see fresh shrimps in the market and in the name of lurve, I always willingly oblige.

Girding the Grill: Grilled Shrimp Salad with Cherry Tomato Skewers

Frell, it’s good to be back writing about food! Or cooking something so we can write about it. And FYI, “frell” is a Farscape reference. If you didn’t know that, well… then Google will serve your purpose. :D

Anyway, there I was last night with time on my hands waiting for Van to finish working. I inadvertently went to Pinterest and got hooked looking at mouth-watering images for hours! I knew there was a reason why I made a point not to visit that site the past 3 months when we were swamped with work. It will literally EAT “arns” of your life. (Wow, another Fascape reference... Just shows how much I’m missing the series.) Sorry I got sidetracked, but Pinterest does take a lot of your time – though in a very good way. Definitely a GOOD way since it got us inspired to cook shrimps for today. Last night, I saw this gorgeously grilled shrimps there and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on some so I could do the same.

Back to Blogging (An End to a 4-month Writing Drought)

We pretty much neglected our blog the last several months and I think that’s one of the capital sins of blogging. So, yup we’ll be going to a place in hell where lazy bloggers are punished. Since Diablo 3 has something to do with it, it’s a fitting end. *wink* Damn you, Diablo!!!

But anyhow we’re back to blogging now and that’s all that matters! Yipeeee! And if you haven’t noticed, we have “spiffy-fied” our blog. Check out the minimalist banner and new social icons at the top! And new watermark and signatures, too! Also, we have finally made an “About Us” page – after more than a year! Talk about lazy bloggers! LOL!

Since we’ve been MIA for so long, we are apologizing by introducing another addition to our line-up of topics. Below is a teaser image:
