Weekend Eating | Arroz Caldo

Arroz Caldo

Last Saturday, sister and I took part of the "Akyat Pinatubo: bloggers' climb for a cause," and apart from the body aches and sunburn, I unfortunately is coping up with tonsillitis, for reasons unclear to me. I am thinking maybe it was the pineapple juice I drank early in the morning (we had breakfast at around 4-ish in the morning) and sleeping without drinking water. After the trek I continued drinking the PJ and caught some sleep again, and when we reached a Jollibee branch along NLEX, I ordered quite a lot - chicken spaghetti meal + choco sundae - only to be disappointed because I was having difficulty swallowing. When we reached Quezon Avenue, I asked sister if we could enter a fast food to fix our stuff and seeing a mirror near the restroom, I checked my mouth, and found out my tonsils are already swelling.

Eating the whole of Sunday was a difficult thing - I still am feeling hungry yet I couldn't eat that much. For dinner, when brother asked what we wanted to eat, I asked if he could cook something soft, so they (bro and sis) decided to cook arroz caldo. Even with the soft texture, I still wasn't able to eat that much because of the discomfort.

Brother suggested I do nothing about it and let it heal by itself, but of course I needed to watch for it, so I won't have to take antibiotics.

So... what did you have last weekend? If you're new to the Weekend Eating meme, you can read the rules and get the badge codes HERE.

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}
