Had she been alive, my mother would've celebrated her 84th birthday today. But we did have a small family get-together of sorts. My aunts who are staying in Antipolo and two other aunts from Quezon as well a some cousins, nephew and nieces and an uncle visited us at home. Prepared some seafood pasta and grilled cheese sandwiches, and fruits. A cousin brought Mango Creme cake from Red Ribbon- thank you! :)
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!
