Before the long break, the Holy Week that was, I’ve been on a busier sched, I was juggling between work and my household (as if I have a dozen of kids at home), so whenever we have the luxe of time to go out even if it was a weekday we’ll give it a go, besides the red-hot temperature was a good excuse for me not to cook, I hate sweating in the first place. Take me to Arendelle Castle so I can meet Elsa and froze, the cold never bothered me anyway! 🙂
One of our unplanned dinner date happened on Holy Monday, I was running after to use my discount voucher at Old Navy so we drove to BGC. The remaining voucher I had was nearly expiring I suspect esp that it’s almost a month since its opening day and that it’s a promotion thing only, so I’m not letting it perished just like that, it must be utilized. 😛 After a really quick peeped around Old Navy and shopping for new flip flops I heard my tummy growled. It’s like telling me I’m hungry sarcastically, just like that Lenovo guy whom I hate for his very disdainful remarks and comments. Hahaha. Anyhow, because it’s a week day most stores and restaurants closes early in Boni High so our choices were trimmed to coffee shops that normally stays open until past midnight.
Not that I’m tired of eating sandwiches at Starbucks other than I wanted a slight change that night and Seattle’s Best was the best option, me thinks. 🙂 Because they have more than pastries and dessert, they have light meals and even breakfast plate to proffer, that’s a weakness and I’m all in.
We opted for the light meals, which in my judgment wasn’t really light because the serving was quite huge and filling, coming from a big eater like me you should trust me here. Seattle’s Best light meals are pasta, sandwiches, salad and paninis. We got ourselves the pasta dishes because we feel like eating it that time, if you’d been following this blog and my IG account we’ve been eating pasta more than the regular meal these days because we feel its lighter than the usual combo of rice and meat or chicken, we feel it’s a little healthier tho it’s not really recommended esp on late nights, note to self: the calories from pasta is highly prone to settle around your waist. Now that explains the husband’s Pooh-belly, and that makes me Piglet. Hehehe.
I got the Amatriciana. Linguine pasta tossed with a tomato-based sauce and sautéed bacon slices, topped with parmesan cheese. Served with two slices of wheat bread. It tasted fresh tho a little salty probably because of the generous portion of bacon slices which makes this a traditional Italian pasta.
It’s Pesto for the husband. Inspired by fresh basil, this pesto pleaser is sprinkled with parmesan cheese, chopped walnut and fresh parsley. Served with two slices of wheat bread. I love that it’s not too oily and too strong for my taste, it’s just right.
I’m not really a frap person, I’d always go for the hot variety but you see the sweltering Manila climate is killing me and my baby fats 😀 so I paired my pasta with something cold and rich.
Mocha Javakula.Our deliciously rich classic mocha blended with ice and generously covered with whipped cream. I’ll be hypocrite if I won’t say that I love it better than Starbucks fraps, it’s smooth and not too sweet at all. While the husband enjoyed his Americano, the classic brew that is bold and traditional.
This to self and to people who have been inquest of a justifiable reason: I love the fact that we can date even on week days, I love the fact that we have nothing to worry at home, we’re childless and yes we have a myriad reasons and selfishness isn’t one of them so please excuse us. At times it’s almost irritating when everyone we knew would peppered us with the kid question, and I would simply smile and turn my back. I wish I could just exactly say “I don’t want a kid” to end their inquiry. It’s a personal choice and we don’t live in a vacuum for all ye know. 🙂
