Piso pa rin ba?
O mas malamig pa sa piseta?
Ang agahan, pananghalian
at hapunan na pinagkasya
sa isang maliit kakarampot na supot
para ipagpalit sa pangarap
na papsikel, tutunawin lang
nang panandalian, isisikmurang sa paparating na pantawid sa tag-init.
Disclaimer: this is not a recipe post. As plant-based living eases up a bit, thanks to the vegan police, and loyal adversaries, for spreading the V word, vegan labelled products sprout like mushroom in groceries. The vegetable section is still available, of course. We’re not anymore galaxies away from today’s norm. I’ve managed to discharge the superpowers of bicarbonate of soda and lemon on my utensils, toilet bowl, and cavities. And I’ve discovered a new way to make cooked veggies look decent. I guess life is fairer now.
Then the asparagus.
Who would have thought sautéed asparagus could crank out organized cheers? You can sense its set back yet provocative presence on top of the kitchen counter while watching world politics and other expletives. The asparagus sits comfortably on its high chair. It’s as though it’s preparing to launch into space, searching for new lands. Most glossy cookbooks continue to romanticize it at the expense of its roots. Most earthlings proceed to switch channels. I made an effort to keep the recipe in its simplest form, if I should call it a recipe.
But, again, this is not a recipe post. So here’s a picture of sautéed asparagus with other edibles.
I’m finally back on board. It seems my daily paper and ink (um, this is a failed attempt at replacing “bread and butter”, gah) didn’t help me in any way in cooking new rants for my blog. Embarrassing, really. No, not writer’s block. Something more meta, like renovating and keeping up with my mini animal shelter, in my opinion. But the cats have weaved me something far more terrible. A chock-full of advice for wanna-be faux writer’s block victims. Get off social media and play mini-games. Find more time for naps, set the alarm clock for treats. Download more apps on your mobile and watch the insanity unfold. Something faster, easier, like food apps. Regularly check your gallery’s app only after you’ve instagrammed your newly braided hair. There’s a whole bunch of nasty worlds out there on the interwebs. Finally, find new ways in organizing your downloads. Hah! The cats even sent me the image below. They wished they created it themselves. They said they’ll use it for digital world domination. We never know what we’re missing, really.
