Crispy Pata for FTF

It's food tripping again.A delicious crispy pata dish that I prepared this week. I bought a preboiled pork hind from a specialty meat shop then deep  fried in very hot oil for 20 minutes. Placed in a serving platter together with spicy dipping of soy sauce, vinegar, chili and garlic. Slices of cucumbers are healthy side dish for pork meals. Everybody at home just enjoyed the sumptuous dinner with this yummy crispy pata.

Travel & RV Recreation

I am busy these days as my new food business just started. My time is always occupied with so many transactions like securing permits, supplier inquiries, market appointments, leaf letting, advertising, consumer targets and many more.Aside from all of these things, I am also doing inquiries regarding rvs for sale as I needed it for my business venture. Some of my food prospects are located  out of town and I need to have some covers for my personal utility  car being driven for the business trip. I am happy and excited to secure some covers so that the vehicle would be protected. There are uncertain things that might happen while travelling so it is a must to  be personally secured. For sure my cousin Mark will be very happy because he needs a cover also for his newly purchased utility vehicle. Their online site offers various products so just check it out for more interesting details.

Bacon Ham

I used this bacon ham as cooking ingredient, breakfast dish and as a sandwich. The quality of this bacon ham is very good made more of lean meat thinly in round slices. When I sliced it in strips and cooked separately in a pan, not much of oil as compared to other bacon products.It pays to buy good quality products.

Breakfast Meals

My relatives had a stop over at home this weekend. They left from mlang early morning for some  tests for the seniors. I prepared for them these breakfast menus; stir fried ampalaya in scrambled eggs, steamed hotdogs and onioned beef strips. Though it was quite time consuming because I had to woke up very early to prepare for the menus. But the cooking passion that I had for them was very fulfilling  after all.

White Wine

I like white wine. As a rule, use only a wine that you can drink and can also be used for cooking. White wines are perfectly great with seafoods and poultry dishes. It can also be a good flavoring to sauces. I even added this white wine to my pasta meal this weekend. There are many brands available in the market to choose from in varying prices. Just select according to your taste.

Spreety TV Online

Online activities are already part of my personal lifestyle. I am  online almost everyday doing posts, searches, emails, updates, chats and more. There is one activity that I really like in the internet now  and that is the TV Online .  This serves as my personal guide to many popular television shows that I would always love to watch. The site is very comprehensive where it serves the audiences according to age, genre, sites, shows, premieres and a lot more of choices. There were times when I cannot watched every episode of my favorite talk show  Oprah because of my busy schedules. Missing two or more shows of Oprah Winfrey felt like I was outdated already. I am very happy of this online advancement because it keeps me on track about the society and the world. I even shared this to Anne, MyMy, Raymund and Lydia for they are also television addicts like me. They are also excited to watch their favorite shows and even thanked me for sharing online television to them. For sure this site is worth a watch so just sign in and check it out.

HK Servings

It has been a nice trip to Hongkong for my sister because it was her first time to visit the place and enjoy all the adventures they had with her friends. She shared to me some food servings Hongkong style - beef, rice & vegetables for lunch, breaded fish & rice for dinner and the special tea coffee. For her this  was  great eating experience.

Food Trip Friday

Wow its Friday again! I am always excited to post my menu for today - Lean Beef in Ampalaya (bitter gourd). Thin beef slices sautéed in garlic and onions then added with seasonings (salt, pepper,soy sauce, sesame oil). This is so easy to cook because the beef is tender and the bitter gourd just needs some quick steaming. I love the taste as the bitterness of ampalaya blended well  with the juicy beef slices. Happy food tripping everyone!
