Laughing here – because I’ve procrastinated on #bloganuary and am really behind on some of the prompts.
I’m going to do my best tonight to catch up! I’m facing my procrastination and I’m saying here and now – it’s not going to win!
Right. Let’s do this.
I’ve missed the “What’s your favourite meal to cook/eat?” so let’s smash this one out right away. I love writing about food.
My favourite meal to cook is spaghetti. I honestly think I’m AMAZING at it – even though I use sauce from a jar. I like making spaghetti so much so that Alun complains loudly if I ‘threaten’ to make it for him. He hates my version of it – angel hair pasta (it’s so fine and looks amazing), sauce from a jar – but get this, it’s expensive sauce from a gourmet food place – lean mince meat and a nice smattering of parmesan cheese on top.
My favourite meal to EAT is my Mom’s Adobo. That’s a Filipino dish and is basically a gorgeous chicken (or pork) brothy-type dish that’s cooked for hours and the sauce is filled with so much flavour that even thinking of it makes my mouth water. Mom uses a lot of vinegar, soy sauce, secret spices, bay leaves (who knew they could be so tasty? Maybe I should try some in my bolognese?) and boils the chicken or pork gently and for such a long time that they melt right off the bone. That awesome combo added to light, fluffy white rice…Heaven.
SO FREAKING GOOD.
I might text Mom and ask her to make some for me with some sweet sticky rice.
And all the Filos said “Yeeahhhhhh!”
