Cool gloomy weather is lazy weather for me. I would either stay in bed the whole day or cook all day.
I woke up early.... early by my standards and went to Poblacion Market this morning. I was able to buy some seafood, vegetables and beef but not too much pork because they ran out already.
My neighbor, Triccia Lichauco, said I should try the skinless longanisa of Aling Cora.
I also bought beef tapa for my Ate and Kuya. They love the tapa of Aling Cora but I prefer my homemade Beef Tapa.
Jing was my guest for lunch. I got envious when Mayette said she cooked beefsteak using the rib-eye she bought from Mahogany Market in Tagaytay. I texted her to ask how she made it. She replied, 3 pcs. Kalamansi and soy sauce. You can add a little sugar if you like.
Ok.... Then.... I waited for the rest of the instructions.... Then I waited some more! She forgot because she got distracted by the person who came to their house.
I just cooked Sizzling Seafood for Jing!
I'm getting better and better with my experiments! It was my 2nd attempt. Jing said it was good! I just need to use a sizzling plate. I do own one but I do not know where it is! I cannot rummage in my store room because it might trigger my asthma allergy. I have not recovered yet from my New Year's Eve debacle.
I enjoy cooking in this kind of weather because it is not hot in my kitchen.
Finally.... Mayette replied and got the rest of the instructions for the Beef Steak.
I will probably eat it for dinner tomorrow night.
I also made the filling for the Lumpiang Shanghai, Hermie wrapped the spring rolls but she needs to buy more wrapper tomorrow. I am going to store it in the freezer.
PD's request from the market is Ginataang Langka.
I was able to buy live Hito. I asked Hermie to cook, Adobong Hito.... Will just fry it tomorrow because it is still half-cooked.
I bought tilapia that was still breathing! I wanted to cook Tamarind Fish but I do not have Tamarind paste anymore, so my dinner tonight is just the regular Escabeche.
I wish I can wake up early everyday and go to the market to buy fresh food. I prefer to buy my seafood, meat and vegetables in the wet market rather than the supermarket.
I am just waiting to feel hungry so I can eat my Tilapia and Ginataang Langka.
