caldereta for lunch

food musings, home cooking, Filipino dishes

I think I might have mentioned that caldereta is one of my favorite dishes. I have tried cooking it for the first time and I must say it was successful and sure tasted like caldereta, much to my delight. Unfortunately, I was not able to take photos of my culinary success to share here with you all.

It was a good thing a day after the New Year, we cooked caldereta once again and I was able to snap the quick photo above. I know someone will be glad to know that I conceded and agreed that he’s dish was more delicious than my version, and it actually is! He’s secret? A can of liver spread that actually spells a lot of difference in his version’s taste.

I am planning to curb on my meat consumption for this year, but today I put that on hold while I savor this yummy caldereta. I am having the leftover from last night’s dinner to feast on at lunch time!

By the way, in case you’re wondering, we used Mama Sita’s Caldereta mix {the spicy variant} for this delectable dish and followed the instructions found at the back of the pack, too.

a delightful world chicken meal

If you want to go on a food binge, the best place to go is World Chicken! Yes, I might be a tad bias since their oh-so delicious pastas are my favorite, along with a number of side dishes like the decadent potato salad, but I am sure you will agree that they also offer a healthy concoction with their freshly-grilled chicken. It is a welcome break from all the thickly-coated fried chicken that most fast food chain offer.

It has been ages since I’ve had my World Chicken meal and I am glad we had the chance to eat there when we went out to see a film and stroll in the mall the other day. We are sort of tired from the little man’s usual Chowking dining requests and since there are just a host of different options, we decided to give Trinoma’s food court a visit and chose World Chicken!

My platter included a serving of the healthy grilled chicken, tuna fettucine, potato salad and a glass of thirst-quenching lemonade. Can you tell am already half-way through my meal when I took the photo? 😛 I was also thrilled to notice that World Chicken is serving their beverages in cute paper cups with equally lovely paper straws! Kudos to them for lending a hand in helping to reduce the use of plastic!

The little man was just slightly interested with the day’s meal and only had a few spoonfuls of chicken and pasta, and will not take a sip off the lemonade no matter how much we insisted that it is just as delicious as his favorite pineapple juice. He preoccupied himself by playing with the toy we brought along and listening to the piped-in music blaring from the food court’s music system.

After the meal we then headed off to explore a bit of the mall, checking out lovely display here and there, like the nice Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures and this cool godin a6 at guitar center, and went to see the film Frozen, which is why we went there in the first place.
