It also doesn't help that Swe-Cha has been extra fussy these past few days and would often wake up from his nap crying and interrupt my pumping sessions - tummyache, I think. I've been going over what I've eaten recently and there's nothing special or new so it must be the weather or it could also be that he's gulping down his milk when he feeds. We should make an extra effort to burp him after meals.
So during Swe-cha's daily walk today, I went and got a pack of ribs from the grocery store. I always like to buy a whole rack of ribs and then cut it up such that the rib tips get steamed, chinese style and the bones get boiled into a huge pot of plain old buto-buto soup which I love with macaroni thrown in.
I saw some watercress at the grocery store and thought about getting them to make watercress soup - which hubby has been dropping hints about recently - but they looked suspiciously old (lamog and lanta).
Oh and while we're at this, here's a bit of trivia: While I typically enjoy having soup as a viand (ulam) with rice, hubby is the typical Cantonese who drinks soup separate from the meal / rice.
I also inventoried our freezer and found some beef short ribs which will make yummy nilagang baka, I'll line this up for when we finish the pork bone soup I'm making today.
On the way to the grocery, I was sorely tempted to drop by my neighborhood Dunkin Donuts to grab a sandwich (love their croissant sandwiches and today is too cold for iced coffee). I have to give myself a pat on the back for resisting the urge and just buying a loaf of whole wheat bread instead. Swe-cha was sleeping (as he always does when we go on our walks) when we got home and I was able to make myself a grilled cheese and scrambled egg sandwich on wheat bread. I am not craving the DD sandwich anymore.
