Pork Sinigang

This is one of my favorites and almost always cooked in our household, I would like to share to you my friends my shortcut version of Pork Sinigang. Why shortcut? Less ingredients and with use of instant souring ingredient without the hassle of going thru the manual way of cooking tamarind and having to mash it then separate the skin, etc...

All you need is half a kilo (500 grams) of pork, Knorr Sinigang Sampalok Mix (Original)(i used the smaller pack)--for those who are not in the Philippines, you can find this in a Filipino Store or the like, one medium sized onion and a bunch of kangkong leaves.

Sauteed Malunggay with Ground Chicken

I haven't posted here for a while now... I have a couple of posts I've been meaning to write but then i'm thinking about the pictures I have on my mobile phone. For a change, I'm trying to develop my topic through the pictures I currently have. Yes, unlike on my other blog which I am migrating to a new one, I am posting more pictures here--a must have for a FOOD and HAPPY blog. One thing that caused such delay is because my sister temporarily lost her memory card adapter that's why we couldn't transfer the pictures from my memory card to the computer. As I type this, my sister has already found her adapter but it's not the way I transfered my pictures for this and the succeeding posts--the genius of my cousin allowed me to have internet access through my mobile phone, thanks to you cousin!

Enough for such introductions, I would like to share to you my husband's experimental cooking :)

With the ingredients we have at home, he was able to whip up a healthy dish which at the same time is easy on the pocket. Oops, this is my first attempt to post a recipe on this blog so please excuse me for not having the exact measurements of the ingredients and before and after pictures--I only have here the finished product.

My cellphone camera didn't do any justice on the photo up top which is actually Sauteed Malunggay with Ground Chicken.

The Ingredients:

3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 medium onion, chopped
25-50 grams ginger, thinly sliced
200 grams ground chicken
1 cup malunggay leaves, rinsed
1/2 tablespoon cooking oil
1/4 cup water
salt and pepper
a pinch of sugar*

How to cook:

In a medium sized pan, saute ginger, garlic and onion in cooking oil. Add the ground chicken, salt and pepper to taste. Add the water and let it simmer for 5-10 minutes. Add the malunggay leaves and a pinch of sugar and cook it for another 30 seconds.

Easy to cook, budget friendly and most of all healthy recipe. A cup of malunggay leaves only costs 10-15 pesos ($ 0.23-0.35). You can also use canned tuna in place of the ground chicken.

* My husband and I use sugar instead of MSG (monosodium glutamate), I read/heard somewhere that it's a healthier alternative...

a very simple celebration

I tried to cook spaghetti for the first time, all by myself when my baby turned two years old last March 9. Unlike on her first birthday celebration where we had balloons, hotdogs, spaghetti, cake, favors and guests, this time we celebrated it with just me and her daddy. 

on her first birthday: spaghetti, pancit sotanghon, maja blanca, bico and hotdogs with  marshmallows

happy woman with happy Feet :)

Shoes makes a woman happy. I am a happy woman because i now have a new pair of Crocs shoes :)

I am actually ready to give up and accept the fact that I am not going to own a pair of Crocs just yet but then again who would do just that when it’s FREE and free things, giveaways and the like are my weaknesses nowadays specially that I’m having financial difficulties but I will not talk about that here because this is a happy blog.
