Food Soothe....

Have you ever had a day where the world seems againts you?? Well, yesterday was that kinda day for me. I broke my 2nd espresso machine and my office desktop was acting up like crazy! Hay-ya-yay! Two of the most important things that makes my day-to- day living possible. Caffeine and internet. I cannot function without my daily dose of espresso....and I can't finish a day in the office without blogging..checking our my favorite blogsposts (you know who you are ;p! )and checking my mail. So you could just inagine how I was feeling yesterday....down and out!

Good thing friends are there to lift you up when you are in a slump...and boy do my friends know how to make me feel better....

...howelse? But with Good company and good-mood food! hahaha ;P (baboy ba? hehehe) Well, I am a simple person with simple joys...and so my friends and I went out for good ol', feel good food...at Cibo =)

Our all time fave Spinach Dip

I dunno how many times I have blogged about this...but it's just soo good. Crispy-crunchy melba toasts to scoop that gooey-cheesy and piping hot green dip! A smile crept on my face with just one bite ;P hehehe

Something old...now something new...Pumpkin flowers and Anchovy Pizza!

Squach flowers are sooo nice...can be made into unique appetizers...can be a great pizza topping like so. I don't think it has any taste at all but with the flavorful Anchovies and cheese..on a delicious cripsy crust...a winner!

Now something light for our pasta...Penne with Olive Oil, Roasted veggies with Olives and Sun Dried Toamtoes...

simply wonderful. I love that pasta is consistently al dente at Cibo!
That's just that. Good Italian food you can count on...like my dear friends =) I definitely ended my day with better spirits. Thanks guys..you're the best and thank you Gaita Forres!! ;P

sira pa din espresso machine...problem is it was bought in the US so can't be serviced here =( buti nalang marame ako BACK UP coffee contraptions ;P hehehe

Ruy said...

Wow, so it's really an obssession pala. Very interesting. I used to love espressos myself but I never dreamed of having my own machine. That's just way cool.. I hope you get it fixed or something.

Jen Tan said...

useD to love ruy?? you mean not anymore? maybe I should get a more expensive espresso machine brand...but the first one I broke was a Melita.

thanks...I hope a do find a service center to have it fixed..or maybe send it back to US ;P

Ruy said...

Well, I would say that I don't drink it as often as I used to (which was every chance I got). Lately cold coffee drinks na lang lagi. Hehehe. But I like espresso pa din.

I'm not really well versed in Espressos and espresso machines but I dont think that more expensive necessarily guarantees better quality. I'd say look for something with the best reviews value for money wise.

Jen Tan said...

yeah ruy..i shall do that..thanks for the advice =)ako naman not so much of cold coffee drinks...mejo hardcore ako sa coffee...espresso and espresso based drinks...and hot most of the time...rare na frap ...kaya problema ko nag pag kumpleto ng stickers ng starbucks--fro the planner...I don't fancy mga toffe-nut stuff and fraps..dun ako kinukulang =(

Ruy said...

Wahahaha! I'm working on completing mine (stickers) as well! Liv's leading me by a mile with hers.;p
Naiinitan kasi ako most of the time kaya I end up getting cold stuff these days.

Jen Tan said...

hey pag may excess si liv...palimos naman ng stickers!!!! ;P hahahah or swap tayo....pag kulang ka sa hot bigyan kta..tas sobra mo sa cold gimme! deal? hahaha ;P

Ruy said...

Great idea. haha. Sayo nga ata dapat manghingi at ikaw ang addict.;p
