Pansit Miki Guisado

What did you get your Mom for Mother’s Day? A cake, a bouquet of flowers, or the latest brand of cell phones? Or did you treat your mom to a sumptuous meal in her favorite restaurant.

When I was young, it was my mother who treats us during Mother’s Day. She would cook Pansit Miki or spaghetti and banana cake for the occasion (and for other special family gatherings that require her cooking expertise).

Here’s my simple version of Pansit Miki :


Miki noodles
Diced tofu
Chopped cabbage
Julienned carrots
Chopped spring Onion
Pepper, Salt


Saute garlic and onion, add in diced tofu. Add ½ cup water and seasoning (salt, pepper), bring to a boil. Add in carrots, miki noodles and chopped cabbage. Stir. Simmer for a few minutes and serve. You can add strips of chicken or diced pork or shrimp. You can pair pansit with fried fish, chicken or pork dish.

Pizza treat

We’ll definitely be having pizza on Mother’s Day. According to my daughter, who just received her salary after a month stint as a newspaper cartoonist, she’ll treat me with my favorite pizza on Mother’s Day. She said I’ll be delighted with her treat for she knows that I love pizza so much. But she promised to give me more than pizza when she finishes school and has a stable job. She would probably give me a ring or a matched necklace set that she wants us to wear. I would appreciate anything that you’ll give me, anak. But you have to remember that you alone are more than a treasure worth keeping. Happy Mother’s Day to all!
