“Food that is presented well is appetizing enough.”
One of the things I love to do is have fun with food when I’m in the mood to cook and prepare it.
Very recently, my dad was put on a special no salt and no fat diet. At first he thought it might be difficult for him to follow the diet because there is only so much one can do with “diet food.” So it was up to me to make each of his meal interesting.
I was his cook for about a month but it never occurred to me take pictures. I did remember to take a picture of the one below. It’s no-oil grilled skinless chicken (marinated in garlic, lemon, and natural herb mix – rosemary and oregano), grilled tomato and onion, steamed vegetables (potatoes, carrots and squash) and all plated on a bed of slightly chopped parsley.
It is always my pleasure to cook for my family. When I’m in the kitchen, I am known for not allowing anyone in and – confession – I am also known for getting short-tempered when someone touches the food that I’m preparing with “their own recipe version.” Who wouldn’t right?
One of the people I love cooking for are my niece and nephew. They are only 3 and 7 years old so food and snacks must look appealing to them.
The photos below were first shared with family and friends and I thought of putting them here.
A long overdue project. This was due in October and we are uber late for our DIY post. Kaye and her husband Gio traveled to the Philippines and I got some unforeseen busy schedule PLUS I did not anticipate that Card No. 2 would take this long. Lol.
I have never heard of a black Christmas card nor a hand-painted one, so I thought I’d give it a try.
Card No. 2: ~ Stitched ~
This is the card which I did not anticipate would take a while. Little tip: Needles & threads are better off with real cloth. I would have bought a cross stitch cloth but since it’s DIY with less expenditure as possible, I made do with what was available.
There you have it! My first time to make my own greeting cards ^_^.
