Quick cooking menu

I got some chicken liver from the fridge and had it cooked quickly because my brother had to report for work and he needed some pack for his lunch. Sautee the liver in onions and garlic. Simmer for a few minutes until the juices come out and mix until golden brown. Add water let it boil for 10 minutes. Add salt, pepper and seasonings. Put some dissolved flour in water to thicken the sauce. When it reaches into good consistency , add the bell pepper as garnishing then serve hot. Fast serving with a good taste.

Fresh Kamias

My office mate gave me these fresh fruits of Kamias (cucumber tree) and I was thankful because these are good flavorings for my cooking activities at home. Fresh green that were just picked from the tree. I immediately washed and cleaned them when I got home. One way to preserved is to put the Kamias in a container with salt. It can stay longer and one of its culinary use is for sinigang or as a sour base for fish paksiw.  One time this week , I will add this Kamias fruit in my cooking menu.

Pork Pot Roast for FTF

Asian Pork Pot Roast

This is another new recipe that I tried to cooked last weekend at home. Pork chops mixed with water, chopped ginger, marmalade, ketchup, soy sauce, seasonings, salt and pepper. Then charcoal boiled very slowly for an hour and a half until the pork becomes very tender. Garnished with chopped leeks then served immediately with rice. It tasted yummy-licious as the ingredients blended well with the pork chops. Hope everyone is enjoying this Fridays' food tripping day. Have a great weekend to all!

Steamy Labong in Saluyot

I am salivating while typing this post (honestly!). This is one of the old time  favorite dish at home. Labong (bamboo shoots) and saluyot (slimy kind of green leafy vegetable) with takway ( gabi veins), okra, shrimp paste and fresh shrimps. I would consider this meal as healthy because it is vegetable based with no frying of oil.  For the folks at home this menu is irreplaceable by other meat dishes. Serve steamy hot and enjoy eating either for lunch or dinner.

Belgian Chocolate Crispies

My first time to taste this Belgian Chocolate Crispies that my sister got from a seminar that she attended weeks ago. The chocolate was actually a token for those attendees who participated in the upcoming opening of the chocolate store here in the city. Pure chocolate taste of thin chips with some crispies sprinkled in it. Unique and delicious taste that is worth sharing in here.

Beef Ribs in Broth

I would include this kind of menu as my comfort food because it truly gives me a nice, relaxing feeling after savoring the hot broth, chewy beef ribs and the nutritious vegetables of the meal. Most days for the past weeks were rainy and my moods were sometimes unpredictable due to stress from work and many thoughts about daily living. Anyway I was just thankful that this delicious meal filled up my hunger and everybody's palate at home.
