Egg and Coleslaw Wrap

The weather is a bit gloomy with rain showers from time to time.  Yes!  It's a lazy day.  I bet all you want to do is sleep and tuck yourself under your blanket.  Well, I'm guilty.

I don't have any plan to cook today since all I want to do is to sleep and rest.  Very much like a couch potato, right?  I checked out our fridge and my dad is busy charging and playing his tab when he asked me what's for merianda.  Okay, I'm caught off guard.  I don't have any plan, but this is some of the rare moment he would ask me to cook so I quickly scan the fridge and found some pita bread, cheese and small cabbage.  I grabbed some eggs and remembered I have a pouch of mayo in the kitchen.  With these ingredients there's only one thing I could make, egg and coleslaw wrap.  Very few ingredients and really simple to prepare.  Yup!  Just under 30 minutes.

Yema Chocolate Cake a la Kusina ni Teds

Yema is a traditional Filipino custard candy made of condensed milk and egg yolks then wrapped in colorful cellophane.  It's one of my favorite candy that reminds me of my childhood.  At a price of a peso, I could enjoy this sweet treat during my childhood.  Because I love yema so much, I also made this as a summer sideline business during summer vacations.  I would made about a hundred pieces of yema and I would display this in our sari-sari store.

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.
