Hinubarang Lechon & New Food Finds

What do you think happens on a Saturday night when ghouls and zombies start to roam freely, chasing princesses and fairies into oblivion and ignoring bucketful of chocolates and mallows and cookies ... then zeroing on a helpless pig?

The skin being ripped off ... crunch, munch, crunch, munch, an endless cacophony of crunch and munch and the loud smacking of lips afterwards. At least the ghouls were kind enough to leave the poor pig's face alone so that it can have, at least some pride and dignity.




De La Viuda Bonbones. "Of the widow ..." A bit morbid sounding chocolate treat that hails from Spain. "The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain." I just love this song from My Fair Lady.  The chocolates came from hubby's client. It has a very smooth melts-in-the-mouth texture and had a perfect blend of milk and chocolate that doesn't overpower one another.




Spaghetti Ramen and Jjajang Bokki Ramen. After the carnivorous dinner, daughter and I left for Greenhills to check out some books at Fully Booked and buy stickers (?) at Happy Lemon. Hahaha. As always, going to Greenhills won't be complete without visiting our fave Korean Grocery. Here's our latest food finds: Spaghetti Ramen and Jjajang Bokki Ramen (soybean flavor).




The spaghetti ramen tastes like the usual pork/beef ramen, except that you need to add tomato sauce to make it spaghetti-sh. More like ketchup-y taste to me than tomato sauce. And its not spicy also so kids can enjoy this, too. A nice alternative to the usual ramen. Italy meets korea. ;)

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.
