I LOVE CHOCOLATE

My favorite dessert is chocolate. I love chocolates because it makes me become relaxed, happy and my stress level becomes lower. Chocolates also raise antioxidant levels in the blood  which in turn help fight any foreign bodies that can cause illnesses. Anyway the photo below are the chocolates  given by my sister-in-law who is residing in  Paris, France.  She sent package to my mother-in-law and thankful because we received  clothes, shoes, and my favorite chocolate.

By the way, I am very thankful to my  sister-in-law for the package.

BANANA CUE

Banana cue is a kind of Filipino snack that are deep-fried bananas and coated in caramelized brown sugar. There are different kinds of banana and the one used in banana cue is saba. I took a picture of these banana cue’s while the vendor is selling at home, it cost Php 8 pesos. This is  perfect for snacks because banana have many vitamins like Vit. A, C, E, B, and potassium, and it’s best for a healthy diet. Banana fruits widely  sell in the market at affordable price.

Halo-Halo

          Today is summer season and the favorite way to beat the people this summer heat, is one big serving of Halo-halo. Halo-halo is known as a Filipino dessert or snack and it is quite easy to prepare as most of its ingredients are readily available. It is usually a mixture of sweet preserved like beans, macapuno or coconut milk, jackfruit pinipig, sweet yam ube, leche flan, shreds of sweetened plantain or saba, filled with crushed ice, evaporated milk and topped with ice cream It is a traditional Filipino summer treat in the Philippines.

          If you will go somewhere you’ll find a Halo-Halo, because halo-halo is very popular during summer time. You will see Halo-Halo in the street/in store, in the restaurant but they have different ingredients as you can see the regular and special Halo-Halo or you can make it easy to do it your own Halo-Halo. Today I eat two times halo-halo, I buy to my neighbor it cost P15.00 or less than $.5.  They have a simple recipe but having a strong smell and the sweetened is exactly to the taste. They have a simple mixture of preserved, like beans, sweet banana, pinipig, gelatin, mongo, ube and of course the evaporated milk. My hubby and I are the number one regular customer in my neighbor. He asks me it is a simple Halo-Halo, but it’s creamy and the sweetness is exactly to the taste.

Potchi Candy

          Potchi Strawberry Cream Gummy Candy is the favorite candy of a lot of people here in the Philippines most of all for the kids. Pochi is a yummy candy; it’s sugar-coated-chewy-gummy and strawberry flavored. This candy’s favorite of Vince, everytime, he bought a potchi to my neighbor store. My hubby tried to give him any kind of candies but he did not eat. But for the potchi candy he dancing, surely makes him feel happy. 🙂

This candy is also available in all sari-sari stores.

Jollibee Chicken and Mushroom Pasta

          Yesterday, I got a chance to drop by Jollibee SM Lucena.  I usually eat at Jollibee during dinner or snack time that is why I am not familiar with the Jollibee New Menu for the day. I usually eat the Jollibee sweet spaghetti, chicken, burger and French fries. The Jollibee crew was offered me something new to add to my order and this is Jollibee Chicken and Mushroom Pasta, then I will try to order and I really enjoy the good taste of this Pasta. I believe you really enjoy the Pinoy style sweet spaghetti; but you might also enjoy the good taste of Jollibee Chicken and Mushroom Pasta it also had a generous serving of button mushrooms.  The spaghetti noodles coated with a spicy tomato sauce. The sauce actually tasted like common meat sauce sans the sweetness. However it is good, very tasty. And the grated cheese provided the slight, dairy flavor that’s providing a good difference to the strapping flavors of the sauce. A solo order of this Jollibee Chicken and Mushroom Pasta costs Php 55.00 only.

          Just try the Chicken and Mushroom Pasta I hope you really enjoy the good taste of this Pasta.  🙂

 

BREAKFAST WITH HOT COFFEE AND PANDESAL

          Good morning everyone, today is Sunday have a great Sunday to all. It certainly is a great way to start the morning than having a nice coffee, with hot pan de sal, a Filipino bread literally means bread of salt and slices of cheese. I have a neighbor here and she has a bakery shop, where i frequently buy breads. I love their pandesal, because it is freshly and newly bake. Today I wake up at 3.00 in the morning, I don’t know why I woke up this early :-(, because most of the time i wake at around 6.00 in the morning.  I decided to  get online, first my Facebook account and then listening and watching the old 80’s music/video in youtube together with hot coffee and pandesal. Breakfast with hot coffee and pandesal is a typical Filipino breakfast.

           After that I just went out to walk and have some stretch, feel the cold of atmosphere,  I felt refreshed and full of energy. What a beautiful way to start the day.

BUKO SALAD

          Salad is the most popular Filipino dessert usually served after lunch or dinner. And for the Filipino buko salad is common usually during any occasions. Me and my hubby were craving for buko salad so we went out  to buy the ingredients. We bought 12 pcs. or one dozen of young coconut.  Then we went to grocery store and bought the remaining ingredients needed to make buko salad.

          Here are the ingredients we bought: 1 liter of today’s fruit cocktail, alaska condensed 350 ml, all purpose nestle cream 200 grams, eden cheese 180 grams. My hubby and I started to prepare the buko salad by scraping the buko meat from the husk using buko shedder utensils.

         Then, simply mixed all the ingredients including buko meat in a mixing bowl. Be sure to mix well. Then chill in the refrigerator for several hours. After that my buko salad was ready to serve cold as a dessert.
