I am due for a post! I have the energy to whip a post after drinking hot chocolate. I feel so recharged. While on my mini blog break I had a strange idea to motivate myself to become a better cook. As I mentioned in my previous post I need to learn how to cook properly so I don’t disappear. So I decided to create my very own diner and the only customer is me! That way I won’t risk getting the virus! On a serious note though, I used to dine alone a lot after work because I am too lazy to cook but that has changed! Life is different now so I have to adapt to the new reality.
Anyway, I went to the grocery store bought food this weekend so I don’t have to go out for the remaining of the week. While I was at the grocery store, I realized there are so many men in ponytails shopping for food by themselves. The lockdown sure has turned many men into cavemen. I don’t know if that is a good thing or not–but it doesn’t bother me as long they are civil. For the most part, they are polite.
I thought I’d start creating my menu. Back in the day, in my happy days in elementary, I have always admired the lunch ladies for planning out meals for each day. School lunch actually tasted really good so this is where I got the inspiration from apart from watching Midnight Diner on Netflix, which I enjoy very much. Stories surrounding around food sound appetizing. With patience and practice, I can become a better cook. I feel so happy just thinking about it.
For my menu, I start with the basic first, which is breakfast. It is also my favorite meal of the day! You can’t go wrong with a nice hearty breakfast. So far I made pancakes and French toasts. I am almost perfected the shape of my pancake but I need to be more patient so I can make a perfect circle! After all, we also eat with our eyes. I wonder is that where the word eye candy came from? Wait that is not the same thing! Oh my goodness I am turning into a pervert for food!
Breakfast is so good with black coffee!
I hope you enjoy breakfast with me at Halsdoll’s Diner. Please come again next time!
I just realized I need some eggs and sausage with my pancake. One step at a time, I am getting there.
