Simple Birthday Celebration for the Man of the House

Hubby just celebrated his birthday a few days ago. We had spaghetti, pizza, calamari, and mojos for lunch and dinner courtesy of our daughter. Thanks, N.

Everyone is busy so we were not able to take pictures of the food except this Ube Bloom Cake from Red Ribbon Bakeshop. We prefer this cake variant from the other ones that we tried before because the icing is not too thick and the sweetness is just right for us.

Happy birthday, oppa! Saranghae!

Happy birthday, we love you so much. We pray for your good health and long life. May all your wishes come true. 🙂

Simple Palabok Recipe

This is my first attempt to prepare Palabok. I’ve got my inspiration from Chef Tatung’s Simpol palabok recipe on Youtube. Although I made some modifications like cooking the ground pork thoroughly before adding the sauce.

Ingredients:

Excellent Pancit Palabok Noodles

For the sauce:

(I don’t have specific measurement for the ingredients. Tantyahan na lang. 😀 )
cooking oil
chopped onion
chopped garlic
dried shrimp (hibi)
annatto oil/water (atsuete)
all-purpose flour
2 Knorr shrimp cube
1/4 kilo ground pork
fish sauce (patis)
ground black pepper

For topping:

These are the only available ingredients for toppings I have in the kitchen. You can add variety of seafood for toppings such as, shrimps, mussels, squid.

chicharon baboy crushed
fried garlic
spring onions
boiled eggs
fried tofu (tokwa)

Procedure:

Boil pancit palabok noodles for 12 minutes to 15 minutes.
Saute ground pork in garlic and onion. Add dried shrimp. Add atsuete water mixture. Let it simmer. Add flour. Mix thoroughly. Add shrimp cube. Simmer. Add fish sauce and black pepper to taste. Simmer for a few more minutes.

Arrange the boiled noodles in a plate. Pour the sauce on the noodles. Add in toppings. Enjoy!

We have this for dinner last night and for breakfast this morning. 🙂

What’s in a box

This is a thank you post. Our niece who got back from a vacation in Taiwan gave us this delicious pineapple cake in a box. On the other hand, hubby received a boxful of non-fat fresh milk from the office.

From Taiwan. Thanks, Ate Aileen!
