I know how hard it is for our moms to prepare our meal. Specialy those mom who have kids who doesn't want their meal to be a "repeat performance" of their previous dish. I can relate to that because I am like that. I don't want to eat the same dish twice on the same day. It's not necessarily mean you have cook fish for lunch and pork for dinner. Maybe a twist of the previous dish will somewhat give life to the dish.
Happy Easter friends! Okay, my post is not something or any way related to eggs. Eggs is so popular during Easter because of the Easter Egg Hunt that kids really enjoy. Here in the Philippines, well in our family, Easter means meat day! It's the day we can eat meat again.

We had a bunch of left over baked chicken this lunch and when I mean bunch its more than a whole chicken. My relatives visited my brother who was hospitalized due to appendicitis. They came over our house to have lunch. So with three of us, my mom, dad and I, we would consume this for a couple of days and I don't want that. Better to transform this to another dish.

Today is one hot hell of a day. Its as if I don't want to move an inch because of the weather. Well, that's impossible because I have to cook for lunch. I just felt really lazy today that I decided to cook something fast, simple and does not require me to stand near the stove so long. This dish is so simple, affordable and something that reminds me of our (me and my mom) unusual surge of craving. A simple can of sardines.

I can't get enough with puto. A couple of weeks ago I made cup-sized regular puto. To be honest, while making those puto, my mind was drooling with idea of topping those lovely puto with dulce de leche. Too bad I don't have one that time. This time I made this again with a bang.

Puto is a staple dish in town fiestas usually served with pancit (the way I like it) or dinuguan or pork blood stew (the way most people enjoys eating it with). It is a steamed rice cake with so many variations throughout the Philippines. Different provinces has their own version of puto. Though, it is traditionally made with galapong or powdered rice, you can also use flour to make it.

Siomai as we all know is a small dollop of chopped pork meat and shrimp wrapped in a thin sheet of wanton wrapper can be found in all corners of the Philippines. You can find several food carts selling different kind of dumplings in malls, at the corner of the street and now, even sidecars selling this stuff. Though delicious at very affordable price, what disappoints me is the so many extenders and artificial flavorings added to these wonderful dumplings to the extent that it taste like starch-ball filled in wanton wrappers. Ofcourse, the case is different if you are going to buy this on a authentic Chinese restaurants with twice to thrice the price of the commercial siomai.
