Weekend Eating | Binagoongan / Ginataan

Today, I harvested my first ampalaya. Like the fruit where I took the seeds, it was a bit small, and I hoped to share a picture of a dish using my harvest, but my mom and my siblings attended a birthday party two houses away from us, and since they ate quite a lot, they decided not to eat dinner anymore. I did cook something for myself, but because I just manicured my nails, my dinner wasn't spectacular.

Binagoongan / Ginataan

Saturday lunch, brother decided to cook the liempo delivered to us because it has been sitting in the freezer for a week now, and because we try to consume meat within the week of purchasing it, brother thought of cooking it a la Binagoongan.

Sis: Ano'ng ulam?
Me: Ay, alam ko... Binagoongan.
Sis: Ahhh, kaya pala may talong (sa ref)?
Bro: Yep yep.
Sis: Ayos, tapos lagyan ng gata!

It turned out really good. I do love dishes with gata (coconut milk), and the blend of the bagoong alamang and the gata and the chili garlic sauce sister cooked was something that made me eat quite a lot that lunch.

Thanks for cooking, kuya!

Jenn, the Foodie

I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
