Cooking is not my thing at the moment. Not that I don't enjoy doing it but because I would prefer to do other things rather than cook. Plus with my recent diet, I don't feel obliged to cook because 2 out of 3 meals are done via my NutriBullet. How convenient, ey?
So when Joseph said that his roommate, Mithing, is cooking "escabeche" for supper. I immediately jumped out of the couch and got ready. I was so in for something beyond my scrambled eggs. Hahahahaha!
For a little bit of suspense, Joseph and I went to Cornwall Centre to buy some stuff for his Eurotrip this September. You can see that he likes preparing things ahead of time and he seems to get things in order. His living space translates to how he is. On the other hand, I did not find anything special that I wanted to buy at the mall. I thought I'd just get something in Vancouver when I go there the first week of August. But I still tried my luck on shopping that day and went to The Bay and then Marshalls but there was really nothing that I really really liked. So I kissed shopping goodbye that day.
Because Mithing requested for some bell peppers to add to her escabeche, Joe and I went to Save On Foods to get the much needed ingredient. I also took the time to get some pineapples and buy some chicken wings and a dessert for all of us.
When we got to Joe and Mithing's condo, I was famished. The smell of the escabeche was to-die-for. It brings back good memories because it reminded me of My Papa who cooks the best escabeche in the world. I was so surprised that Mithing also cooked some sautéed squash with small slices of pork. Which happened to be another of my favorites! Can I ever get any luckier to have friends who cook?
As soon as everything was set. We just dig in. But first - WEFIES! For some of you who do not know what wefies are. Urban Dictionary defines it as a selfie but with 2 or more people. Brilliant!
Eating time was the best part! My tummy was the happiest.
And the star from last night's supper was this Tuxedo Truffle Mousse cake from Save On Foods! It was so good I had to ditch my diet and just tell myself to "YOLO!"
