Spaghetti Bolognese



I tried cooking  this kind of spaghetti during the holiday season at home. It was different from the usual spaghetti that I usually prepared. For this menu I added some Italian sausage (not smoked) and finely chopped celery stalks and carrots. I love the new flavor and the taste. Authentic dish that everybody just loved to eat last Christmas.

Christmas Donuts

I got a chance to buy these yummy donuts from GoNuts. Assorted kinds of round, soft and sweet donuts with varieties of flavor like chocolates,cinnamon, and peanuts. I bought a dozen ( 1 box ) from the take out counter of their stall in Alabang Town Center. We enjoyed eating it and just a  perfect  morning  partner for a cup of coffee.

Corned Tuna

One canned fish product that I like is this corned tuna. It tastes great in a simple fried way of cooking. Just saute onions and garlic then add the corned tuna. For this you can also add other ingredients like vegetables, egg, cheese etc. for more flavorful dishes using corned tuna as the main ingredient.

Pata Day

Last Sunday I cooked this meal with the main ingredient Pata (pork hind part ) which was boiled until tender then added with salt, pepper, soy sauce and onions. To make it more saucy, I put a can of pork and beans. Include also potatoes and carrots to make the whole menu flavorful. Garnished with green leeks. A friend taught me to try adding pork & beans on meat dishes to enhance the sauce flavor. And it was indeed good to taste.

One Squid Day

This is a pan grilled stuffed squids that I prepared for dinner. There are different kinds of squid that you can buy in the wet market but for this menu I used the whiter kind . Chopped tomatoes and onions are used as stuffing then seasoned with salt, pepper,seasonings and soy sauce. Heat the olive oil and butter and pan grill the squid. This should take a few minutes only and do not over cook the squid to prevent from becoming rubbery. Serve immediately.

Weekend Meals

I had been craving for some fish menu and so I found time to cooked these fish in vegetables and tuna kinilaw. The fish cooked in green leafy vegetables are so satisfying especially the hot broth in it. The spicy & sour taste of tuna acts as an appetizer for a hearty eating over the weeekend. Yummy!
