in sickness...

In light of feeling invincible, I am also apparently invulnerable. Or at least, I think I am. I choose not to be bogged down by the common cold although unhealthy eating habits and practices brought about by the holidays have finally caught up to remind me to slow down. I guess being sent home from work is a definitive sign.
And yet the spirit in me says, "I will not be defeated!"

The result --- after a few hours of resting and doing absolutely nothing....
I made spring rolls for the first time, all by myself! I was feeling nostalgic because I used to always help my mom make them. (fine, A helped a little bit with wrapping and chopping veggies )
When I ran out of the wraps, I decided to be creative with the rest of the meat and make embutido. I added some relish, hard boiled eggs and sausages to make it look authentic. Not bad for a first try, I think =)
