Grateful for 2021

We should always be thankful for all the blessings we received and will come our way this year.

Most of these gifts we got from the workplace of hubby.

Different coffee mix. I only tried the 3-in-1 coffee, bread, and a sachet of stevia sweetener.
These apples are big. Two persons can share a piece.
I may start searching for different recipes that use cheese as one of the ingredients.
Rice allocation from the office.
Our niece gifted us a delicious cheese pie dessert on Christmas Day.
Lastly, a group outside of my husband’s work gifted him with a mobile phone, a power bank, and a personal air purifier.

My fervent prayer, not only this year but, beyond is that all families and friends thrive, be happy, and healthier. I’m also claiming more job opportunities for all of us.

Simple Anniversary Celebration

It’s that time of the year again to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It is special this year because we are celebrating our 25th. Following our modest tradition of not spending lavishly on occasions like this, we only ordered our food online.

We haven’t ordered from Papa John’s in a while. We ordered two of our favorites – Pizza and Calzone.

The salo-salo ended just like that. Hubby and I are looking forward to celebrating our golden anniversary and beyond.

Our Simple Christmas and New Year’s Eve Food

Another year has passed and we are starting a new leaf on the calendar. We are thankful for the food we shared on the table and I’m sharing our simple salo-salo picture on Christmas and New Year’s Eve here for posterity’s sake.

Our DD ordered our food on Christmas Eve. It is her way of treating the family since she got a new job before the year ends. The food came from different sources. We have pizza and Charlie Chan Chicken Pasta from Yellow Cab; chicken wings and fries from Frankie’s; cake from Cake 2 Go; and puto calisiao from Decena Puto Calasiao.

Since we are only four in the family we made the food lasts until the next day. The pizza and cake for two days or so.

Our simple New Year’s Eve food was courtesy of our niece. The delicious combo include sushi bake, baked spaghetti and banana cake. Not in photo was KFC Hot Shots.

We may have been affected by the worldwide health crisis in 2020, but let’s not forget to be thankful for friends and loved ones who always remember and look after us in times of need. May we not forget to pray and hope for all the good things to happen in 2021. Let’s toast for a healthier and brighter 2021!
