To manage your expectations I just wanted to let you know that I am not a chef nor am I a great cook. I'm just an average woman who's trying to find easy to prepare and cook meals for the family.
Easy to prepare is important. Back in the Philippines, where I was born and raised, we had help at home. When I learned to cook at home (in my early twenties) I had someone helping me peel and chop the onions. I come from a family of great cooks. All of them asked me (and my cousins) to step out of the kitchen because they were too busy making us great meals. They have gotten so used to making them they forgot to pass on the skills and knowledge to me and my cousins. Hence, I started learning in my early twenties.
But cooking Filipino food here in the US is a challenge. Most of the meals back home were heavy on preparation. So I rarely make them. Plus I have finicky eaters at home that would rather have some Thai dish or bacon. Hahahaha! Seriously. Plate of bacon. Not healthy. It was a challenge at first learning new dishes on my own but I braved the storm and after some tears shed (not from peeling onions) my confidence in my cooking have improved. So tonight I decided to share with you what I made for dinner that partied in our tummies.
It's no five star recipe but it's definitely yummy, affordable, and easy to make. I hope you give it a try and let me know what you think. I also would love to hear about your simple healthy recipes and perhaps try them out. Please let it be as simple as this one. Hehehe!
