Hello MONDAY!!!

I don’t think I hate Mondays. I used to dislike it, but these days, it doesn’t really matter. There are even times when I get confused with the days of the week. I guess it boils down to different shifts per client plus working even outside of my shift…

This particular Monday, I started early since I had a scheduled meeting (via Skype). After the meeting, I decided to just cook. 🙂 I was going to cook last night but I ended up sleeping o_O.

I decided to make Creamy Mashed Potatoes. I got this recipe while I was Stumbling (seriously, if you don’t know Stumble Upon, please get to know the app/site). As usual, I didn’t (entirely) follow the recipe of  The Pioneer Woman. Made some changes mainly because of the availability of (some) the ingredients.

I truly think that the picture does not do justice to the actual taste. Or I’m just biased.

Ahhh… I love pepper…

But wait! There’s more! I’m Filipino. I love my meat. So aside from the Creamy Mashed Potatoes, I made Chili Con Carne. And yes, I also got the recipe when I was Stumbling and yes I made changes to the recipe. For the original recipe, check out My Glorious Food.

My version turned out to be extra hot! Instead of putting chili powder, I used chili flakes. And lots of it! My mouth was on fire! But still managed to eat a lot. *burp*

Again… Happy happy Monday!!!

Thinking about posting what I did different with the two recipes… Will add those later… Feeling lazy.
