To Die with a T.

My younger brother is getting married this year. June, to be exact. I have about 2+ months to lose weight (I don't want to look like the mother of the bride no, LOL). So I've been starving myself lately, literally cutting down on food.

I tried going on the Cabbage Soup Diet last month. Alas, I actually gained because I gorged on cabbage soup all seven days. Kasalanan ko ba na I love cabbage soup? LOL! So ayun, I ended up gaining two pounds instead of losing any! Aray!

You must be wondering how I managed to eat all that soup, and why I didn't get tired having bowls and bowls of it everyday. The secret? TABASCO SAUCE!

Man, a few drops of Tabasco Red Pepper Sauce gave it the extra punch, and it was indeed delicious soup! I really, really didn't mind having it every single day.

A week after that diet, I switched to all veggies. I love salad. I love greens, carrots and tomatoes. I don't mind having it plain (no meat), kahit na minsan, feeling kambing na ako. Hahaha! Baaaa!!!

My cabbage, lettuce, arugula, carrots, tomatoes and sunflower seed salad. Nom!

And I'd add a few drops of Tabasco Sauce to the apple cider vinaigrette. Sarap! Life-saver talaga! In fairness, I lost those two pounds plus some.

Thank you, Lord, for Tabasco Sauce!

Ok, I know this is late, but I had tons to do last week, plus I had a bento party order early this week. Pasensya na, sorry po. Haha, here's last week's scheduled giveaway...

Yup, you guessed it. Tabasco. I knew I was going to write this piece, especially since I was heavily using this hot sauce brand during my cabbage soup week. So I thought I'd give some away.

WIN THESE! Giving away this set of Tabasco Pepper Sauce!
Garlic Pepper Sauce, Original Red Pepper Sauce, Green Pepper Sauce, and Chipotle Pepper Sauce!
(Oops, missing Habanero, oh well.) 

Original Red is the best! I love this because it is classic! Plus, look, it's FAT FREE!

Green Pepper Sauce is mild and gives just the right punch to any dish!

Garlic Pepper Sauce is my favorite! I love Garlic, and use this for steak. Mmmm...

I also love the smokey flavor of Tabasco Chipotle! This is great for burgers.

FACT: I always bring along a bottle of Tabasco Sauce in the car. We bring it with us to McDonald's, KFC and other restaurants. Once, we ate at this posh steak house (name of establishment withheld) and I cannot believe they didn't have Tabasco! Instead, they brought a bottle of some local brand of hot sauce that didn't quite taste like anything hot and peppery. I cannot (and will refuse to) use any other hot sauce brand. Only the best - Tabasco.

Anyway, you know what to do. Follow all applicable steps on Rafflecopter below. Please remember to use a valid email address when logging into the Rafflecopter app. That same email address will be used to notify you in case you win.

This giveaway is open to anyone with a valid Philippine address, and will run from today until 1159PM of Tuesday, March 18.
