A 6.0 magnitude earthquake hits northern San Francisco Bay Area (CNN). Yes, indeed! Got awoken by it around 3:15 am… not fun when you’re in the 2nd floor of your house having a sound sleep, then suddenly being swung and shaken shocked. Now I have all this adrenaline to keep me up for an hour or two, heading to the fridge now to get post earthquake snack of string cheese and maybe some Doritos.
Easy Crustless Cheese Pizza (recipe adapted from Nigella Lawson’s crustless pizza recipe from Nigella Kitchen)
These days I like simple flavors, and quite surprisingly, I am having a bit of aversion to really salty bold flavors such as cured meats.
Last Sunday, my husband ordered a Meat Lovers pizza which we normally enjoy but because of my pregnancy my tastebud is super sensitive that I become so overwhelmed by strong food flavors. So I ended up more enjoying the pizza crust edges dipped in tomato ketchup.
I was raised eating really simple meals. Living here in the states, is taking a lot of adjustments for my tastebuds to adapt, and mostly I never enjoy most meals because they are too rich and with complicated different flavors. It’s also so seldom now that I manage to eat simple Filipino food. So when I do get to eat some, I always go for simple boiled rice, fried fish (today it’s smoked milk fish) and chopped tomatoes seasoned with sea salt, and I am always over the moon and thoroughly satiated.
Brunched with my lovely friend Roxane last Friday @ CLIFF HOUSE, SAN FRANCISCO and I happily enjoyed their complimentary popovers (bread basket) which I ate with whipped butter and strawberry jam more than I enjoyed my burger, but their garlic fries is to die for. Also Dungeness Crab Cocktail (and Roxane), Camera Obscura and Sutro Baths.
