I went to the grocery last Saturday night and what I'm supposed to be buy is just one can of milk.  But guess what?  I saw a pack of fresh egg noodles and thought I want to make something out of it.  Then I grabbed a bunch of Chinese cabbage, squid ball, kikiam, onion spring and tofu.  I just grabbed them by instinct to go with my noodles soup.  A noodle soup I just imagined while picking those ingredients.  A noodle soup I don't know what to call.

Quesadilla with Caramelized Onion


It's a lazy afternoon today and the weather this past few weeks has been really wet.  It rains everyday which I really don't like.  Yes, the gloomy weather kind of influence me or should I say us to just sleep and totally be lazy all day.  I got hungry and I want to eat something savory but I don't want so much fuzz in our kitchen today.  I want a simple dish that is so simple to do with little ingredients to handle.  The result of my snack meditating moment is quesadilla.

Tofu and Oatmeal Porridge

It's been raining for more than a week now and it's always remind me of my favorite comfort food, lugaw or porridge.  I just so love the flavor of sauteed ginger in that thick warm broth in porridge.  I love the nice flavorful broth of lugaw specially if its made of beef shanks and marrow bones slowly boiled until the richness of the meat and bones flavor the broth.  I love to scoop out the soft gelatinized bone marrow out of its cage and hearthfuly welcome it with my mouth.  The flavor is divine and yes, sinful.  That was during my younger days when I don't have to think of my cholesterol level and my blood pressure.

I asked my mom yesterday afternoon to buy some chicken feet since its been a while since I ate this wonderful dish.  Then she asked me, what's going to be tomorrow's dish.  I pause for a while with nothing in mind.  She said, she'll be buy a whole chicken then roast it tomorrow.  I frowned because I'm getting sicked with roast chicken but still I have nothing in mind.  Then, an idea pop out, chicken inasal.

It's a self-declared day-off due to typhoon Glenda.  It was a long day of strong wind, rain and blackout.  I was on my way to work this morning, thinking that its just a not so strong wind so I can make it to the office.  To no avail, I stood on the street for an hour with an umbrella on my right hand and a soaking wet pants.  I told to myself, Okay I'm fed up with this bad weather and so haggard look and decided to go back home.

Liver Spread and Cream Cheese Sandwich

The humble liver spread that we usually adds to Kaldereta for additional flavor is also a great spread for your bread, specially with hot pandesal.  I could still remember my grandfather would buy some hot pandesal in morning and there would always be a liver spread ready to go with it.  I love the taste of the liver spread smothered on my bread.  The light taste of pandesal and the mildly savory, sweet and spicy flavor of liver spread really goes well with each other.
