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.
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.
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 breaststrips (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.
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!

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 :)
