Peek-A-Boo! I See You!

If there is such as thing in blogspot as " Feeling" the way FB let its members describe their feeling on their status....

Then in blogspot, I can say.... Feeling Excited!

There are only a few things that can excite me and jump start my heart.

One of them is the skin of the crunchy Lechon.

We ordered today from Leonardo's in San Juan.

Another thing that makes me excited is..... Bone marrow!!!

Whenever I serve Bulalo to my guests, I do not eat a lot because I want my them to enjoy the creamy buttery goodness of the marrow.

So tonight was my chance to indulge in something so delightful and sinful!

And.... The best part... All the marrow was only for me!!!!

I ate it with hot rice, calamansi, patis and red chili pepper.

I boiled it for 3 hours! But the end result was worth it!!!!

I could see the marrow peeking from it's hiding place!

The length of each marrow was about 7 inches....

It only yielded about 1/4 cup of marrow for each shank!

I measured my rice, half a cup only but I had to add 2 more tablespoons!!!

Ahhhhhhh such guilty pleasures! Eating marrow may be high in calories but it is also high in monounsaturated fats, the kind that is good for you like Olive oil.

My favorite quote:

"What doesn't kill you make you stronger!"




  1. Lia, i didn't know that about the bone marrow...that it is high in monosat. fat!! that's great news, hahaha!! Haay, hind shanks sold in markets here look pathetic. They saw/cut them about 3" thick minus the Litid!! i guess it makes it easier to get to the "utak" but i like making it "tak-tak" :)

    1. I know what you mean, Kat! Last time I bought 3 inch bone marrow and the Utak "escaped"!
