It has been a while since I’ve shared my foodie journeys! Each picture has a story, and I promise to try and share a little of each period they’ve been made.
So here’s the journey I’ve made during these pandemic months.
Beef in red wine sauce
So I think that if you’ve read most of my blogs, you would know by now that I really don’t cool that often. But when I do… I can prepare some deliciousness is a pot! Yum! For this meal, I made beef in red wine sauce with plain rice and soporopo (bitter melon). Scrumptiously yum!
Mom’s delicious Tofu dish
My mother is all into intermittent fasting and she creates little bites that are soooo good and absolutely tasteful. Fried tofu with her secret sauce on top!
When a friend drops a picture of her homemade flan, and you comment that you really wanted some but couldn’t find at the store anymore… she sends you a message back to come and pick up a piece. Oh boy… I thought she was going to give me one bite, but this piece was more than that…. and it was enough for the four of us at home.
For my son’s 12th birthday we decided, before curfew, to have a little party just to make sure he at least enjoys his day. By the looks of all the pictures below, you would not even think it was a pool party! But an eat party lol. anyway… Creamy pasta with shrimp or chicken, hamburgers with fries to go, and a Fortnite birthday cake. Yum we totally spoil our kid.
So the husby bought a new toy… the grill! Lol this is our first meal prepared by him on the grill. It was surely delish!!!
One thing I love about home made soup is that you can add meat with bone and bone marrow! I used to fight with my brother about this when we were young. Mom always cooked it with at least 4, but… the marrow is so soft it slips out and you need to find it in the soup. My brother was always the lucky one. And I usually ended with a sad face. 🥺
Ants 🐜 climbing on the tree 🌳
Yup! That’s the name of this dish. My mother was roaming the internet and stumbled upon the recipe. One day she prepared it for us, and it was an instant hit! And easy dish tho.. rice vermicelli, beef and pepper 🌶
It wouldn’t be my blog, if you wouldn’t see at least one burger in it. He hasn’t done it for awhile now, but my son used to come up to us at night and say: “I’ve got burger issues!” Meaning, he wanted a burger badly and we needed to make him one. 🙈
Our second meal on the grill is Picanha! Absolutely delicious 🤤 looking at the photos again makes me hungryyyy sigh. Doesn’t it look good?
