Food, Tea, Mugs, etc..

Few weeks ago, I posted  about my kids Christmas party in school at my parenting blog .   The homeroom Mom really  went all the way in preparing for the party.  Mrs. Arnold brought in foods that everyone have enjoyed the party.  I wish I can cook  as good as Italian Moms lol.  I love making Filipino food but I also like eating Italian food, I just can't make it as good as Italians do.  
She  prepared  vegetable salad, rigatoni with meatballs, cookies for dessert and fruit punch for drinks.  She even bought a cookie cake for the birthday celebrant.  I will miss this kind of bonding and camaraderie among the kids and parents when they go separate ways in high school.
On another note, now that the  freezing temperature  is settling in, hubby and I are really trying to eat healthy and also workout as often as we could.  I would say that by trying to live a healthy lifestyle,  is really rewarding.  It's a lot of hard work to stay healthy but it's really beneficial not only for us but for our children as well.  My husband  used to always feel tired but ever since he went back from working out regularly, he'd become  stronger and healthier and it also made him happier.  It's the same way for me as well, I used to be grumpy and always feel weak but now I am more active and my migraine  have also lessen which is great because migraine is terrible.
Anyways, aside from eating healthy, we also try to  use  natural products  for treating  health conditions.   I used to take sleep aid pills since I find it really hard to fall asleep but now I  drink slumber tea before going to bed and it works like magic.  Hubby also found a  concoction that works really well for bloating issues and it also works so well with detoxing our bodies.  
Time for confession, I will let you know  one secret about me.  When I was in my 20's, I used to collect mugs  but I had to leave it when I migrated here  in the US.  I still collect mugs occasionally especially when we travel but not as much.  I don't have a  favorite mug but I use  different ones depending on what I am drinking.

Winter always brings sickness but we are prepared.  I make ginger tea at home and we  drink it often, it really helps us not get cold.  Ginger tea with honey and lemon is a drink that helps us away from flu.  I believe in the saying  that prevention is better than cure.

Now, this is a party! I love Italian food also, especially when it looks this good! What a fun birthday party!

The party looks like it was a bunch of fun. Who doesn't love Italian food. It is all the carbs I don't love. That is why we don't have it all the time.

We have tea often at our house. I have several tea varieties in our pantry that we partake in daily.

I love Italian food! That pasta seriously has me drooling right now.

Brandy Ellen said...

Looks like so much to enjoy! I am all about those coffee mugs. I am a complete coffee mug addict. I don't really use them though, only when I make tea. Which is rare.

That is quite the spread! You didn't miss a thing. I'm sure it was a great party.

Italian food is always good and for a birthday party makes it better.

You definitely have a great sense of being a chef, I love the list of food you've featured here. Especially the Meat Balls with an amazingly looking sauce with it.

I love drinking tea to settle my stomach and help me go to sleep. I also love mugs, but haven't found any I really like in a while, though I'm always on the lookout.

It's so true and I feel it as well. When I work out I feel so much better and less guilty about eating "bad" food :) Wonderful cake. Hope Michael was excited about it. A calming hot tea before bedtime helps me relax and fall asleep :)

Kathy said...

Yum, everything here looks amazing. That would be a party I'd love to have too. Lots of amazing dishes here.

Beth Patterson said...

My mom and sisters love all kinds of tea and drink it for different occasions. I mostly stick to Chai tea, but every now and then I will have ginger and lemon tea. It is quite comforting.

Terri Steffes said...

My Italian friends are much better than me at Italian food. I think they intentionally leave out the most important ingredient! Ha!

I agree, prevention is better than cure. I've never tried ginger with honey and lemon. But it sounds soothing when you are under the weather. - Lynndee
