It is funny how during the Lenten week, we all have the tendency to gain weight. There is just too much food to eat and not much activity to do. Since my brother and his family are here in Manila for a vacation, my mama has been cooking non-stop all of my brother's favorite dishes. As I watch my brother eat with gusto, it made me think what he and his family eat. The last I was in their place, there was nothing to cook for the freezer's only content was ice. When my mama came over for an off and on visit that lasted 10 years, she was the one doing most of the cooking.

I asked my nephew what they normally eat for dinner and he said "nothing". When I prodded more as only me can do, I learned that most meals where take-outs or eat-outs or granola bars and cereals. Crap! So, even as I know that the rich food that mama is cooking for my brother would probably give him aching joints, I did not stop him from eating the Filipino food that he must have missed a lot. I even asked him what if he'd like me to cook "Binagoongan Baboy" (pork sauteed in anchovy). D1 just has to give her uncle a prescription for the best joint supplement later... much later.

  1. Huh? Di nagluluto si SIL mo? Filipina ba? Kasi kung puti medyo maiintindihan ko kasi sanay sila sa mga TV dinners at take outs...

  2. @ huling: pinay. e hindi ko nga malaman pano sila kumakain ng hindi nagluluto e. baka puro cornbeef, egg at SPAM ang ulam.
