Simply Healthy, Simply Happy!

Cooked a simple yet healthy lunch for the family one day last January. For a stay/work from home Mom like me, it is quite hard sometimes to think and prepare the family’s meal of the day. Especially if you have a picky eater, a curious toddler and a spouse that loves to alternate most all-time-Filipino-dishes. Not to mention a slightly tight budget. I have to set my own choice most of the time… not until this particular day when I did not ask for their meal requests. I gave in to mine! To my surprise, they all liked it too! I am just glad that both my girls eat veggies. They may be both picky at times but does not say NO to veggies.

In The Kitchen: Bicol Express

 

When I was still young, I never want to eat anything that has too much coconut milk in it. I feel like throwing up because of dizziness it causes me – no, I did not have hypertension then or even now. I think it was more of a psychological “kaartehan” or an alibi so I could eat or ask for something yummier for a child. My Mama was from Bicol province where people are known to cook almost all their delicacies with coconut milk and wild chili (local name: siling labuyo).  But when I started to mature, and became interested working in the kitchen, my alibi faded. It came to a point that I finally enjoy Bicolano delicacies and even asked my Mama to teach me cook some.  There is one dish I have never tried cooking though, Bicol Express!

I got the inspiration from one of my cousins, Ate Jen. One time I was planning  what to prepare for the family, I decided to get all the ingredients necessary for Bicol Express dish. I even found myself browsing for the recipe even if I already know it. And, this was how it looked like when it ended in our table.

The pork was tender and the dish has a balanced salty-spicy taste that even my 10 year old daughter enjoyed it. My Bicol Express dish has given me added points of confidence in the kitchen. Having said that, I may have to try few more Bicolano delicacies soon!
