Vegetarian Mixed Malunggay Canton

I really love vegetarian foods. In fact, I will share today another vegie dish that I’ve tried just recently from one of the known restaurants here in Cebu City.

Here again, I have Malunggay Canton but this is different from before though this is still mixed with malunggay canton. The last one that I shared was Seafood Mixed in Malunggay Canton. This one is merely a vegetarian mixed menu.

As far as I could remember from what I’ve eaten, some of the other vegetables mixed on the dish were carrots, spinach and mushrooms.

In terms of the deliciousness of the food, well, it was undoubtedly very mouth-watering added to the fact that the food itself is a very healthy one.

Have a blessed Sunday everyone!

Sashimi in Legazpi City

Last year, October 2010, I, my mum, my cousin and aunt, had a chance to have a quick vacation, if one week could still be considered a quick vacation, in Bicol Region, Philippines. We were able to tour, actually, from Southern Luzon driving to Camarines Sur. That was indeed a very fun and enjoyable trip!

And off course, let’s not forget about the foods that we enjoyed. However, I don’t think I could post all of the foodies, delicacies, of Bicolanos (people from Bicol) since most of their foods are porky. LOL! But I will try.

For the mean time, I’d like to share here a Sashimi which we ate in Gerry’s Grill in Legazpi City. This is not the first time I ate this food. But comparing to other Gerry’s Grill restaurants, the one that we have had tried in Legazpi City was much more mouth-watering.

I forgot what kind of fish was that, hehe, but when it was served to us, it was really looking fresh and scrumptious. Since I am not very expert in preparing this such appetizing food, I let my aunt do the stuff. She added vinegar, some chilli liquid sauce (which is very common in all Bicol foodies) and some other spices.

After a minute of mixing and doing the final food taste-test, pak!, I was really the very first one to grab the spoon and tried some. That was really yummy!

Above is my mum holding the plate of Sashimi.

My next post which is still related to our Bicol Region post will be about one of the delicacies in Bicol. Can you guess what would it be? Smiley

Tomatoes for Salted Eggs

Last Sunday, I shared about how to prepare one of my favorite, considered, yummy breakfast foodie, Salted Eggs with Tomatoes. Today, I will share to you an image on the real tomatoes that I ate aside from the previously sliced one. Below is the tomato yet to be sliced.
Here’s some facts we all need to know about tomatoes.

Tomatoes, those are medium-sized, contain 1.08 grams of protein, 22 calories and 1.5 grams of fiber. Other minerals found in tomatoes are potassium, which is the highest among all, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium and a lot more.

I, by the way, would like to share that my boyfriend, Mark, has started his mini garden in front of my apartment. One of vegetables he’s having there is tomato. He’s not always in my apartment, he has his own room to stay also in the barracks, so I am the one tasked to water and take care of his plants. Just for me to learn how to care plants, I stumbled upon ‘watering and general care of tomatoes in Crete’ website. But again, since planting, I guess, is not my love, I instead ended up finding holidays to Crete online. Having a vacation is more than other things I am still thinking now. I want rest, I mean, from physical and mental things I am in now. I want to visit international spots. But hey, I still didn’t forget to water Mark’s plant, though. Maybe soon, I can travel, hopefully.

Salted Eggs with Tomatoes

One of foods that I love to prepare at home is the ‘Salted Eggs with Tomatoes‘. It’s very hassle-free! All you need to have are the salted eggs from the supermarket and tomatoes. Nothing else, but you can also add some spices if you like.

Would you like to know how I prepared this? LOL!

I peeled the egg, off course, and sliced it as well as the tomatoes. Did you get it? Haha! So easy, right?

However, this kind of food, I mean, the salted egg, is not that very good to prepare during holidays, as what my sister shared. Eating eggs in more than once in a week ain’t good at all. It’s cholesterol, after all.

Talking about holidays, August 2011 has a lot of holidays to celebrate. Off course, it doesn’t have any classes, why not celebrate then. Even how hectic to think my schedules are, thinking of any holidays, for as long it doesn’t have classes, it would still be considered the Best Last Minute Holidays I could have. LOL!

Have a great Sunday, everyone!
