When I think of comfort food I think of home cooked meals that brings me joy.
I remember waking up to Purefoods corned beef with steaming rice on Saturday mornings. I remember my brothers and I fighting over who gets the most Purefoods bacon. Bacon is relatively expensive and since budget was tight then, the rarity of a bacon serving and the squabble that comes with it, made it even more yummier.
There were times when my mom, would serve us another brand and we would eat, yes, but nothing spells special than the classic taste of Purefoods. It’s like those givens, pencil is to Mongol as corned beef and bacon is to Purefoods.
My husband on one hand introduced me to Purefoods Vienna Sausage. He grew up to spaghetti with Purefoods Vienna Sausage on it and wants us to do the same. My kids have not had spaghetti without it.
It’s funny how we pass on to our kids the comforts and happy memories of our childhood. It brings a warm smile to our hearts as our past and present comes into one joyful contact.
A few weeks back, Purefoods Blue Line invited bloggers to a delightful afternoon of Art at Sip and Gogh, Pasig.
I was a little bit worried at first because art is not really one of my talents. I can’t even draw a straight line! As in may ruler na, tabingi pa rin. I was quite surprised because it is not as hard as it seems.
#LoveMarie artist herself, Heart Evangelista, was there to help us out in our creations. She is soooo pretty!
It is nice to know a celebrity like her shares the same breakfast comfort food I grew up with.
Camille, from the funny trio of TheSoshalNetwork got lucky when Heart added a painting of lovers on her canvass.
I’m quite pleased with my artwork as well. Everyone was guided to paint their own rendition of “Down the Blue Lane.” I decided to add what brings me joy, my family.
In a way, painting is just like cooking. Both entails art and love. I’m not a natural artist nor cook. But I like beautiful things and I like good food. When we try our hand at it, both are not as daunting as it seems. It is relaxing and it warms the heart.

Everyone I meet nowadays has a cold, just got out of a cold or is about to have one. The colds and cough virus is so bad, the school of one of my kids even released a reminder to keep kids at home when they are sick.
My rule of thumb for my kids’ absence is [Read More...]
“It’s unfair!” One of my kids shouted out when I reacted negatively over his grade. As a parent we know the word “unfair” makes us reach for the oxygen and brace for a long and emotional talk with the kids. My innately smart child is complaining why I can’t be happy for his B+ and won’t even mention a thing over his sibling’s C. [Read More...]
