Back in The Box

Tuesday 6 March 2012

Isa ito sa Christmas gift sa akin ni Papa E. Lagi kasi akong nagbe-bake ng cakes and he's always very supportive of the things I love. But since having this plus being given a recipe book and a piping set - I suddenly found myself baking more than usual. Hanggang halos every weekend I end up trying a new recipe. 

While this is good coz it makes me happy, I realise that I need to stop for a bit because of its downside. Usually Poj asks for merienda and I offer him fruits first and he'll eat them. But since I started baking weekly he now asks for cake before he eat his meals and for snack. I of course would refuse and this most of the time ends up in a meltdown. 
The other thing that's concerning is that we both gained weight! And that's not only because of the cakes, we know. But if you have a slice of cake after a hearty meal- most days of the week, the calories would sure to pile up. It has and now we have to do something about it. 
This is the start. All our chocolates and dry baking ingredients have now been put away. I will make a big cake soon to use up the ingredients that I can't keep and I'll bring this for my colleagues to enjoy. =)
Hayz, good luck to us =)


  1. How i wish I am one of your colleagues.  it's not bad to eat everything and just about anything but in moderation. Walk every morning since Poj also loves doing this.  Sana nadito kayo para tulungan namin  kayong kumain niyan. But in fairness to Papa E very supportive siya. 

  2. right decision sis Krizzy..our kids should also be disciplined on their eating habits..though baby Poj will miss your baked goodies..fruits are healthier..ah baka pwede naman hirit baby Poj sis Krizzy..ah eh bake me a cake Ina then make me a fruit shake..perfect match hahaha..passing by sis ;)

  3. You can always send some over, sis :) Yun nga lng mapapamahal ka lng. Hihihi

    Thanks sis. I know, pero sa sobrang saya ko magbake that I end up doing it every weekend. Siguro it's best to rest for a while, ok na nga si Poj kasi di na nanghihingi ng cake. Pero we miss seeing a cake on the table, parang may kulang! Kaloka! lol

    Thanks sis. Happy na nga kami kasi lagi na ulit syang nanghihingi ng fruits. Although he never really stopped eating them, mas marami na ulit yung nakakain nya. At kahit pag lumabas kami, hindi na sya nanghihingi ng cake. I'll make one for his birthday na lang, lapit na rin yun =)
