Lunch Buffet again

Another serving during the lunch buffet in the hotel - vegetable chopsuey, grilled  seafood, breaded pork chop, lettuce salad and rice. I was carefully tasting the menus as I found it different in taste and ingredients compared to  common cooking. I think the seasonings, spices and quality ingredients really made the servings  extra special. Great lunch buffet experience for me.

Mango float

Lunch could be so delicious followed by this creamy mango float dessert. I bought this round size in a pastry shop before going home. I sliced it accordingly so that everybody can taste the layers of crackers, cream and ripe mango slices. Yummy!

Stir Fry for FTF

One of the favorite food of my cooking fans at home is this Chicken Sotanghon Guisado. You can use pork, seafood (shrimps/squid) or a combination of both. Onions and garlic are sautéed in hot oil (olive oil)  then add chicken (meat,liver&gizzard). Simmer for 15 minutes then adjust seasonings according to taste. I do not use oyster sauce on most of my cooking for health reasons. Foods are healthier and taste even better by using natural spices and flavorings. Add pea pods, carrot sticks, chopped celery and sotanghon (rice noodles). Stir to mix all the ingredients. Serve hot. It's food craving Friday again. Have a great weekend to all!

I attended a workshop last Saturday in a hotel venue and I was so eager to taste some buffet dishes served for us. This is the lunch serving - seaweed salad, beef in black beans, seafood curry, grilled pork and okoy. Very delicious dishes that filled myself during the duration of the workshop.

Food tripping time

My serving for today is this special chopsuey. Shrimps, chicken&pork liver and squid sautéed in onions and garlic. Stir then add some water and let boil for 5 minutes. Add vegetables- carrots, young corn, cabbage, cauliflower, cabbage, mushroom and boiled quail eggs. Manage the taste by dash of salt and pepper. To make the sauce thicker, dissolved two tablespoons of flour in warm water then pour on while it is simmering. Mix well then add some garnishing of leeks. This is a healthy and yummy meal perfect for servings.

Servings for FTF

Hello to all food trippers! My food servings for today are truly yummy Filipino dishes.
Bamboo Shoots in Shrimps and Vegetables
Edible shoots boiled well then add shrimps, shrimp paste and garlic cloves. Simmer for few minutes then add sliced okra and saluyot. The slimy broth just tastes so good.

Adobo Special
Pork belly slowly cooked in seasonings- vinegar, salt, pepper,onions,garlic and soy sauce. I used cola (not water) for this menu and had it boiled until very tender using charcoal for about an hour and a half. Garnish with laurel leaves. For me these two menus just blend perfectly when served together with rice.  

Food take out

I had no time to cook yesterday at home. The week has been quite tough so I planned to spent Friday evening in updating some personal stuffs online. I went to the nearby take counter that caters roasted chicken (lechon manok). I bought one  and had it sliced for take out. The chicken was very flavorful together with its liver sauce.Happy evening at home with that food take out on  Friday.

Hoseasons - Campaign 3

I am planning to spend a vacation with my family within this month of August or early week of September. It has been our dream to be together as we all need a big break. Our lives are all occupied with work and stress of daily living. I would like to stay in a very private place where we can spend with exclusivity. I always value quality service and courtesy because it matters most especially when having a vacation. With such plans of course I need to search on the internet for some possible offers. A good site about canal holiday gives me a perfect choice of all my vacation plans and I think this is the one. I have already made reservations and I  am looking forward for more great offers from them. Good ambiance, safe place, tasteful food servings and many more.For sure my family as well as my sweetie will enjoy the upcoming escapades. Many great offers on the site so just check it out.

Healthy Selections

I enjoyed tasting these fruit selections of buko pandan and strawberry flavors. The yogurt and jelly  are great combination for  healthy selections. The custard like form that is made from curdled milk is so tasty that I cant stop until its over. It contains some ingredients which can aid to good digestion. When I go to the supermarket with in this week I should buy some of these again.
