Shades of Spring and Summer



Shakes

Sicillian Chicken Salad

There's no spring here in the Philippines, so I would just concentrate on the summer part of the theme. =) When someone says summer, one of the foods I could think of is the mango, so I just looked for foods with mango in it. These two foods were taken from Italianni's, but on two different occasions.

The first picture featured the fruit shakes served to us at the first bloggers' event I attended in Italianni's Bonifacio High Street. Since the bloggers arrived in different times, drinks were served in different times, too, hence the uneven amounts in the glasses. I owned the watermelon shake, my sister owned the mango shake, and my blogging friend Jonel owned the kiwi shake.

The second picture - the Sicillian Chicken Salad was from Italianni's Gateway Mall. When sister and I attended the blogging event, they gave all the participants 1000 pesos of GCs, and we used it for a family lunch out. I wanted mom to taste the salad, so that's what we had. This was the best salad I have ever had, but my brother wasn't really a fan of it.

I love their Sicilian salad. And more often than not, it's ripe mango shake for me. I hope to meet you in one of the food blogging events. :)

now i'm making myself another cape cod chicken salad on croissant for breakfast! i must say though if it has mangoes, it'll definitely be so much better!

I miss Italianni's Sicilian Chicken Salad! Seems that they've now added mangoes to the mix when I remember having only grapes before... :)

Jenn, the Foodie


I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
