Sometimes when I get homesick and I am missing my family, I turn to food as my comfort. Not the food here but the food that I used to eat when I was still there. That's when I cook foods that I miss, the food that reminds me of my family, the food that I can eat and fill that longing that I have for them.
I sometimes see this dried baby shrimps at an Asian store so I buy it and just stock them in my storage that way when I am craving for some native food, I cook. I cook some bitter melon in coconut milk, lemon grass, hot peppers, onions, and the dried shrimp. Do you do what I do when getting homesick?

- The school is still closed due to 10 below freezing temperature that we have.
- I made chicken adobo for dinner.
- Despite the freezing weather, my husband took our son to his gym;nastic class. Me and daughter did not go because I was in pain (menstrual cramp). After getting better from the cold, now I have the Lady Red sickness, sigh.
