I just noticed that I've been eating out alot lately, and wasn't able to share with you guys some recipes.  Well, here's what I've got for lunch just the other day... 

I love vegetables and I guess this is one simple yet very delicious dish. *wink*

the ingredients

1/2 kl ground pork
1/4 kl baguio beans, cut diagonally into half-inch lenghts
1 large sweet potato, diced
1 large carrot, diced
1 /2  head cabbage, finely chopped
1 large onion, finely chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper
cooking oil

here's how

Heat oil on a large pan. 
Saute garlic and onion.
When the onion is already transparent, add the ground pork.
Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and cook until brown.
Add all the vegetables except the cabbage.
Season with salt and pepper. Mix well.
Cook for about 3 minutes.
Stir in the cabbage and cook for another 2 minutes.
Serve hot!

You can also use this as a lumpia filling!

Bonding Over Pizza

Just this afternoon, my Ate Gina asked if I could go with her to the mall. I immediately said yes, since I don't have anything important to do.

After checking out almost all the racks at the depatment store and bought some stuffs, my sister and I headed to Greenwich to have some pizza.  She ordered Greenwich Special Thin Crust Pizza for us. 

I do always look forward on moments like this. Doing things that we both love, shopping and eating! *smiles*

My sister-in-law brought this home especially for me! So sweet! *big grin* Well, that's one of the things I love being the bunso (youngest). *wink*

This is the first time that I have tasted this sandwich from Mister Donut.  Snackwich as it is called, is the counterpart of Dunkin Donuts' Bunwich. 

Just like the typical sandwiches, this one has ham slices, a slice of tomatoe and cucumber, cheese and mayonaise.

Minindal as I remember, is how my late grandmother call our merienda. Just this afternoon this is what I had for my minindal...


I love the coco jam from Pan de Manila... it's not too sweet and not too oily, just right... *yummy*
...and not to forget my cup of coffee! A perfect minindal! *big smile*
