Tasty

I take pride of sharing my ground pork here because it tastes very tasty. I cooked it last few days ago and I still have some left over since I don’t wanna finish eating it all at once. I am eating it slow, savoring every bit of it for when it’s gone I know it’s gonna be long before I can cook this again. The meat I used for this dish is from the Asian Market — just my prefered meat for they don’t stick together unlike at Walmart or other American stores. Ali bay! Ngaon Tah!

Baking

I never learned how to bake until I tried it, making cookies as soon as we moved in here. From then on, I convinced myself that baking isn’t hard at all. In fact, I find it fun to do at the same time filling my stomach’s desire with something I crave for so long like fresh hot peanut butter and cheese bread. Not only me who loves baked foods but my baby and my better half as well. Jadyn loves cookies and my husband loves his food baked.

….photo above is of my very first try making cookies. That little hand right there is of Jadyn’s too anxious to taste her cookie not minding how hot it is.

Possum Pie Addiction

I first tasted this possum pie at the Filipino Christmas party last year when Janine brought it during the party. It tastes so good that I couldn’t get enough of it. I asked her recipe for the pie and made my own. I have tried making it twice already and planning to make some more for I really love the soft, sweet and coolness taste of the pie when it lands to my mouth.

Two weeks ago I made a whole lot of big baking pan of possum pie and it took me almost a week to eat half of the pan. When my husband got home from San Antonio he ate the remaining half as he was afraid it might get so dry. I told him, I am eating it slowly, savoring every bit of it because I really love possum pie.

Health Benefits of Olives

One of my husband’s favorite is the olives. He loves to eat it with chips, cheese and other sorta American snacks at night time. I tried this before and would like to learn to love eating olives but I don’t understand its taste.

Anyways, olives are most loved by Americans to put in their salad or eat it alone. It may be weird tasting fruit for me but it also has its health benefits.

The following information are lifted from its original source from Genius Cook.com. To read further details about Olives, I recommend you visit the website mentioned above.

Soup Of The Day

The weather is crazy all day. We woke up with a very low temperature of 44 degrees. It was raining too that contributed to a much cooler temperature all throughout the day geeeeez! My hands and feet are cold and when I feel that, I get hungry all the time too. If I don’t feed my stomach, I would not feel comfortable. So to relieve my hunger, I made a beef soup with veggies which can be seen below this post, the picture attached that is.

This soup was our viand today and it’s good for it tastes great. Hahaha love my own cooking kaayo. Truly it is good even Jadyn the American-Pinay baby loved it. I still have some soup of the beef left and I look forward to finishing it tomorrow morning for breakfast.

My Brunch

I do have so much stuff stocked in the freezer. Sometimes, it would take long for me to discover that I have nice ingredients for certain dishes waiting for me to cook. Like today, I discovered that I actually have a frozen 9 pieces small karabalyas fish and I was wide-eyed upong seeing them since I craved for fish paksiw or inun-unan.

Yep I cooked the fish and fried some of it. My brunch is complete and now I am very full from eating too much.


My Breakfast– Eggplant

This is what I have for breakfast and lunch today. Eggplant made into two recipes. The first photo is a kinilaw na talong and the second photo is my ever favorite tortang talong– made with egg, a little bit of salt and onions. This simple breakfast simply fills my hungry stomach and this is all what I need and nothing else. Even my baby loves the tortang talong!


Luckily, I Tasted This Filipino Bread

I consider myself as lucky when it comes to eating filipino foods ’round here. Although there are some foods I crave for that I cannot have in Texas but occasional tasting of yummylicious Pinoy na Pinoy inato lang foods like this ensaymada bread that I got from our fave Pinoy resto in San Antonio is good enough.

It is truly a mouth-watering bread for me because it used to be my favorite bread back home. Hmmmm now I only got a small piece left of it and I dare not to finish it too soon or else it’ll take me weeks before I can have it again.
