My cousin just arrived from Cagayan de Oro City and she brought along a lechon. And because we are neighbors (well, almost neighbors), she gave us some lechon. I was practicing with the camera so I apologize for the not-so-nice photo. The lechon skin was not that crunchy anymore (of course!) but it was very flavorful including the meat parts. Yaya was saying we should buy Mang Tomas for the lechon but I told her that the lechon from Southern Philippines doesn't need any sarsa. And I'm right. Oh what a lovely lunch we had!



 
Tropicana Coco Quench. I first saw this drink from a friend's FB post a few weeks back. I was curious about it but since there's a fresh buko seller who passes by our house every day, the Tropicana drink escaped my mind ... until, I saw it in the grocery the other day. This small pack costs P29. Expensive! But nice packaging. And the verdict --- don't like. It tasted like nata de coco water. Glad that I bought only one.




Munggo with lechon bits. I love munggo. Hubby and daughter loves to eat munggo. We eat munggo almost once a week. Sometimes it has alugbati leaves, or ampalaya leaves or saluyot. Or just plain munggo then will just fry some dried fish. But since we still have some leftover lechon (there's still some in the fridge), I added it to the munggo. Wow! Tastes good. 




Frabelle's Hamonado Longganisa. Frabelle is a new brand discovery in the grocery. Actually, I've read about Frabelle's hotdog on the internet and we tried it already. Its a welcome alternative to Purefoods and Swifts hotdogs. So when I saw this hamonado longganisa in the grocery, I did not hesitate to buy it. It turns out, its not the usual kind of longganisa. This one is like a sausage but tastes like longganisa. Hubby and daughter enjoyed it. I do find it delicious and flavorful also but after eating a few bites, I developed allergy. I'm guessing it has more than a fair share of msg (which I'm allergic to). Luckily, sugar is just within reach so I'm saved. But I will buy this again since hubby and daughter likes it. Must try are Frabelle's hotdog and cheese hotdog. Those I can eat every day without any allergic reaction. It has other food products also but I haven't tried them yet. Soon! :)

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!

PRODUCT REVIEW: XTREME HOME Coffee Machine XH-ESCM

Most of us (Filipinos) have discovered the passion to make a nice cup of coffee especially during the lockdown last year. Remember the Dalgona craze at the onset of the pandemic? From then on, coffee has become a part of our pandemic lifestyle, and this include having a coffee corner at home. 

Bolzico Beef To Go via GrabFood

Since last year, when the Covid-19 pandemic took over the world and made everything stop, most people (me included) resorted to food delivery as it is safer than going to the restaurant, grocery, or market to buy food. One such favorite delivery app is GrabFood.
