Jared’s dad recently traveled to Quezon for work-related stuff and went home with 2 dozens of these delicious Longganisang Lucban. It has been sometime since I ate some so just a few days back I fried a dozen of them for lunch! Paired with a plateful of rice and dipped in vinegar and viola! One perfect lunch is served. I was full and all thoughts of dieting and losing weight flew straight out the window! ^_^
I was actually dreaming of pancit habhab, hardinera and budin while I was having lunch that day! How I loved all those mouth-watering Quezon specialties and wished there is a Buddy’s branch nearby that I can frequent whenever the craving strikes. Oh well I can only hope that I’d be able to eat these delights again and soon!
What delicious local food you had lately?
My Valentine’s Day date with my little man is really quite unplanned, we just went out for a couple of errands and decide to check out this new mall which we’ve never checked out before. Jared spotted this soft play area and I agreed for him to play there for awhile. When he’s done we just look around the mall for a bit and decide to grab a quick yet satisfying dinner.
I have never eaten in Chic-boy before so I decided we check out this resto, but can you believe the long line? They seem to go on forever that I decided to order for takeout and just eat our meal once we got home. I ordered fresh lumpia, sauteed beans and their trademark chicken dish.
I quickly unpacked our dinner when we got home and served it, thinking the little man was hungry from all the playing and he just might eat solid this time around. I am actually famished myself and thoughts of romantic Valentine’s dinner by candlelight and accompanying soft music, with musicians doing wonders with a guitar pedal board were soon forgotten. And did I mention, in between my growling stomach and tending to my sleepy little man, I forgot to take photos of our feast for that night. It was a good thing I salvaged the brown paper bag that carried our food. 😀
Oh well, may I just note that I love the fresh lumpia and the veggies. The chicken was a bit of a turn-off as, probably in a hurry, a huge chunk of the chicken was not cooked well. Good thing the little man was too sleepy to eat. He was off to zzzland just right after I fed him with a bottle of milk.
I can almost feel the summer heat and what good way to beat it than having a scoop of your favorite ice cream or having a glass of ice-cold water. A serving of my favorite local dessert, halo-halo, will be such a welcome treat, too! Downing an ice-cold glass of your favorite fruit drink is also perfect and that is what I did exactly.
A tall glass of this oh-so-delicious coconut shake did the trick! So I would always find myself making a beeline to this Buko stand whenever we went to the grocers. I simply love the marriage of a dash of shaved ice and coconut. It does help one to get by, especially on a particularly hot and humid afternoon. Even my little man would indulge me with a sip or two.
Oh well, I will make sure to get me another bottle of this drink when we go to the grocers later today to look for a nasopure product for my little one.
