Do you like this story?
As I made partial mention of the food that I so loved to eat as a child on a post I did some few days ago, allow me to make a post entirely about it.
Both my parents are hearty eaters. They eat not just for the sake of getting nourished, but eating has always been a part of daily routine that it has to be savored in every bits and pieces. But as my mom would always caution, eat in moderate servings.
Meals were not solely focused on the usual Filipino fare of rice and meat. From pastas to burgers (homemade), to salads, to Chinese stir-fry noodles, to Japanese Shabu-Shabu, to French fries, steaks, mashed potatoes, baked oysters, and even making some homemade pizzas! The past few years, I've been endeavoring her to go Thai and Vietnamese for a change but its her very low tolerance to spicy food that's making her not to try it out.
The best thing as a kid for me was being able to munch as much snacks I would have wished to! But hey, I was never an obese kid! Here are a sampling of the snacks that I so loved as a kid:
Planter's Cheese Balls. I can finish one up in minutes! The best way for me to eat it is to have it melt inside my mouth. So cheesy!!!
Red Ribbon's Chocolate Mousse. There are other restaurants that offer similarly good chocolate mousses (like Sugarhouse, etc.), but the taste of Red Ribbon's Chocolate Mousse fresh out of the fridge is a definite gusto!
Chips Ahoy! Original Flavor. Yeah, I already made mention of this a few blog posts ago. I'm specifically referring to the American version! Not the Chinese one! There is an obvious difference in the taste! What we did as kids was to have our cookies reheated at the microwave for 45 seconds! Sarap!
Keebler's Chips Deluxe. This is an AMAZING substitute to my Chips Ahoy. I think its cheaper as well.
Tim Tam. PLEASE GIVE ME THE AUSTRALIAN VERSION!!!! NOT THE ASIAN ONE!!!! This is best enjoyed right off the chiller!!!! Another totally yummy treat!
Gotta make my conclusion here. But my mind just keeps on remembering all of the nice food I enjoyed as a kid. Gotta go! Gotta head to McDonalds and get my Hot Caramel Sundae and complain again for the nth time as to why that branch (in Malate) doesn't have McShake available!!!!
Have a great day!!!
