Lost In Zombie Land And Food Discoveries

Daughter and I visited my aunts earlier today and have found ourselves lost in the village (not full of zombies, thankfully) in between. Unfortunately, the village was quite deserted when we got there and there seem to be some miscommunication regarding coordinates. But all's well. Happy with my green loot bag --- stem cuttings of malunggay and oregano and lots of guyano leaves.

Afterwards, we proceeded to my friend's house and got lost as well. Hahaha. Talk about mixed coordinates again.

Tasted Arny and Danding's pichi-pichi for the first time. Yum! I saw a box of Amber's beside it but I don't want to ruin my appetite. Then there's baked spaghetti and Iko's cupcakes. Heaven!

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.
