Bonjour sexy ladies and gentlemen! I hope the gloomy weather didn't dampen your spirits. If it did, well get up and wiggle those nerves!

I wanted to intentionally leave out the gentlemen but I just can't. They can be sexy too, right? Yeah, I know. Lol!

The week-long rain has had its effect on me too. I had some downtime in previous days I sometimes felt blue. Good thing, the farm boy always seems to know how to tickle my funny bone with his silly jokes.

And because I still post on noise cash, I just share some random thoughts when they occur. And below was just one of them.

My noise cash post yesterday morning.

I also always felt hungry these days and I blame my hormones haha. But who doesn't when you're 'jailed' in your own house with not much to do and the bed or the kitchen kind of alternately calls for your attention?

And since I'm not one who easily gets to sleep during the day unless I am exhausted or have had less sleep for consecutive nights, the kitchen is much more inviting to me.

And I was giggling yesterday when some friends commented on my post where I said "I wonder why I always feel hungry haha"

And these comments from wonderful people made me laugh a bit and warmed my soul too... aah... that feeling, what a bliss!

And here's some more. The first one saying I might be having my period or I might be pregnant if I have a partner. Which I know is logical because we are women.

And yes! I feel great and thankful just thinking about how nice, kind, and thoughtful people are even when we don't know each other. It only signifies that people are indeed basically good. Makes my heart skip a bit, oh no, two! These may be insignificant things for some, but big ones for me :)

And going back to the subject of growling tummy, food, and cravings, I thought I'd share some of our comfort foods or snacks any time of the day. Feast on, my friends, and you're free to drool haha.

Fries

These are out of fresh potatoes though, not the frozen ones usually sold in the supermarket. I don't particularly like buying frozen foods.

This happens to be my hubby's favorite too. He can eat loads of it in one sitting. Lol!

The potatoes are cooked on a non-stick pan so less cooking oil is used and the fries aren't too greasy. My husband prefers to use a deep pan with lots of cooking oil though when he does the cooking.

Noodle Soups

During wet and cold seasons like these days, noodles in soup are our comfort food. Either singly or paired with slices of loaves (toasted or not). These are instant noodles though. I have been meaning to buy us a pasta maker but have not really acted on it. I am a bit hesitant because I am not sure whether I will have the patience to use it and make fresh noodles or it will just be another piece of equipment in the cabinet.

We developed a love for noodles during our stint in Canton where they make fresh noodles in front of our eyes, cook them then serve them. Now I kinda miss their kind of cooking!

Our noodle soups can either be with or without eggs. But we prefer to add one or two, pouched or at times hard-boiled. Or add some chicken too. Can you see that? A bowl of noodles with some eggs and a chicken too! Lol!

Or just like this, with sliced hard-boiled eggs, veggies, squid balls, and chicken breast strips (the farm boy's own recipe and cooking).

When we so crave for it, we'd buy some meat and grill them over a hot pot of noodles too. But these don't happen often, kind of once a year haha.

In the warmer weather or in the summer, here are some of our preferred snacks too.

Banana Split

I obviously love bananas (senorita that is), and I often make them as our snacks during the summer or any season when my tastebuds call for them. They go best with ice cream, a few slices of loaves, then topped with a few drops of condensed milk. Already heaven for me!

Or just slice the bananas and add a few scoops of ice cream. I prefer to eat them when the ice cream starts to melt.

Or some strawberries fresh from the yard, with nothing else. Just pick them, wash them and gobble them. Done! Lol!

We do have a few pots of strawberries scattered around the yard. They bear few fruits in the summer maybe because we forget to water them at times.

When I am feeling particularly generous, I slice them in halves and top them with tiny marshmallows and chocolate chips. Sometimes, I give these a few drops of condensed milk too or none at all. Yum!

Strawberries in the summer

When we are out of the house, or anywhere else, we'd go for snacks like 'fried' noodles. They're quite light but also enough to fill the stomach for a few hours.

Carbonara or spaghetti. I prefer carbonara though, with its more subtle salty, peppery taste than the soury-sauce of the spaghetti.

Sometimes we get quite adventurous when it comes to food. When we taste something we like, we would always try to go back to where we had them. Or we would decide on a completely different taste.

But not to forget about my cravings too at some nights when I am up and working on something or simply just browsing the web for some research. I get my fill with just a bar of chocolate, any brand of chocolate as long as it's chocolate! haha.

Or these recent, I always go for chocolate oat bars. Just a bar would do and a cup of water. No coffee at night for me though.

Browsing my galleries and seeing these photos (below) made me realize I have had some midnight fling with red wines in the past haha. These were the nights when I used to do some trading in Bittrex and the red wine kept me up. I usually sleep around 2 in the morning those times.

The below photo was last year. I haven't had any glass this year because I don't have any stock. May need to buy some soon. Lol!

So how about you? Any particular favorite for to-go food or snacks when you're feeling hungry? Please do share below and let's feast on them too :) Thank you :)

Till then, be healthy, happy, and giggly too!

I am always hungry if my period is near or I'm on my period. Recently, I've been feeling like that too. But just yesterday, I planned that I should manage my eating habit. I tried to get back on intermittent fasting to manage my cravings and it works.

Blame it on the hormones haha. I don't usually go hungry when it's warm so snacks are often not touched during those days. That's interesting, intermittent fasting. Does that mean you don't eat anything on a given day?

Intermittent fasting has different types. What I do as of the moment and what I know is the most famous type is 16:8. Meaning, 16 hours of fasting and 8 hours of eating window.

I'm always fine with bread and coffee that's why there should always be bread in the house. Sometimes we would order through a food delivery we don't feel like cooking but craving for something to eat.

Bread is mostly our easy snacks these days too. When I feel more industrious, I bake some or cookies. But haven't done so these recent๐Ÿคฃ Good for you in the city, food delivery is common and yes, an easy option too.

Your noodle soup left me craving, of course with eggs and chicken better, hehe. French fries are the best, ofcourse homemade. Here, I will also go for tequeรฑos, hehe. Bananas, strawberries, ice cream, chocolate, you just left me starving.

And your midnight adventure with red wines while trading sounds good, I should check out my wine stock to try one of these days, haha. ;)
