Dutch Dinner At Italianni's

Dinner date with my Aunt W and Dutch uncle, and Aunt B and cousins- L and L, and daughter at Italianni's in Greenbelt. I love family dinners!

Pomodoro. Comfort food at its best! Daughter and I shared this while waiting for her fish. I'm on a diet-mode tonight because I'm looking forward to dessert! :D





Salmon Pasta. Delicious! My Dutch uncle ordered this and he allowed me to have a taste. Yes, just a taste. I guess he liked it that much! Hahaha



Parmesan Crusted Dory.  Aunt B ordered this and because I was seated next to her, I can't help myself from having a small bite. Ugh! Salty! But Aunt B says that its parmesan-salty. I think its salt-salty.




Bread Basket. Charm the waiter to get an extra and another extra basket. That's three baskets already. Shhhhhh! :)




Herbed Fish Fillet. This tastes quite good BUT if you are really hungry, don't order this. Takes around 30 minutes before they serve us this dish. Daughter was too hungry to complain. :(




Two thumbs up for the food! Never mind the late herbed fish. We enjoyed our dinner immensely while exchanging stories and discussing our next family food adventure. :)

Off to have dessert now --- haha

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
