I’m not ready yet.
One of my many banes when I’m writing an article here in the site is that I do so much research, I get obsessed by it.
I want to write about Lumpia but something stronger is stopping me to talk about it. I want to know more about the roll of almighty crunchiness before I crack it open for you guys. I think there is something more than what’s inside the roll. I have a few ideas but it doesn’t read delicious yet. This is also what stops me from posting frequently in the site. If an article is not ready, myfilipinokitchen.com will remain quiet.
The other day, Lei asked me, why don’t you talk about all the food that we’ve been cooking for the last 5 days? To which I uttered my usual reply; myfilipinokitchen is not ready for additions of foreign food yet. This website is not about me and my adventures (although, it does reflect it quite a bit) but about Filipino food. That’s why if there is no Filipino food kick, this website will fail to produce content. And that’s what happened for the last 2 months. Alright I’ll stop now before this gets boring. No more dramas. We want don’t want no drama drama.
So for the lack of an article to post yet, I will follow what the lady of the house suggested. Here are the foods that a Filipino family eats, whenever they are not ready for some Filipino yet.
And pardon me, these images were just taken with our humble iPhone. If you are an Apple fanboy, treat this as a tribute.
Prawn and Chickpea Stew and Cucumber and Avocado Salad
5 Spice Fish with Crushed Potatoes and Leek Soup
Cucumber and Feta Salad and Kibbeh with Minted Yogurt
and that comes with
Mackerel Marinated in Pomegranate and Eggplant and Cherry Tomato Salad
Salmon in Miso Marinade and Shiitake Stir-fry
and on the side
Thai Noodle Salad
If you are asking what’s for Friday… I think we had a dozen burgers.
I hope you guys enjoyed this filler while I dig more about Lumpia. And I’m still looking for my writing powers if I ever had any.
Enjoy the week ahead and happy cooking! Thanks Steve!
