Today was a great day for cooking because it was not that hot.
I went to Farmer's Market in the morning because Kuya wanted to eat seafood on Father's Day. They could not go out and celebrate because Renzo and Sophia are both sick, down with the flu.
I bought shrimps, pusit and crabs for Kuya. He gave me a medium sized steamed alimango. I did not want to eat it plain as the day. So I experimented.
