Food Trip Friday – My Squash Soup with Malunggay leaves

Hi fellow foodies! I’m happy to share with you my Squash Soup with Malunggay leaves.

 
 A pear-shaped squash
 
 
Cut up into small pieces for easy cooking
  
Freshly picked Malunggay
 
My squash soup

Here’s the ingredients:
1/4 cup margarine
1 medium onion
3 to 4 cups cooked squash
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups soup stock (the water I used to cook the squash).

Procedure:

 Melt the margarine (I used Star Margarine)  and saute the onion. Add in salt and pepper, cook until the onion is brownish. Stir in the cooked squash and the vegetable stock. Let it boil, reduce heat, and simmer for at least 45 minutes on low to medium heat. 

Instead of parsley, I added malunggay leaves to make my soup even more nutritious. Share other sumptuous food here.

Food Trip Friday: Calzone and Chicken Pasta


We watched Harry Potter two Sundays ago as our birthday treat to Khalil. The kids had a good time. It’s past dinner time already when we got out of the movie house so we decided to just had our dinner in a nearby resto. Unfortunately, all but one eating place is open. So we bought Ham and Cheeze Calzone and Charlie Chan Chicken Pasta at YC. We love the taste of Calzone. But we are pizza lovers more than ever. Khalil ate three slices of Calzone in just a few minutes. He’s not really that hungry (lol). Calzone is an Italian turnover made from pizza dough stuffed with cheeze, vegetable and ham (Wikipedia).

We let the kids feast on the turnover, while hubby and I share this box of Charlie Chan Chicken Pasta. I love the sweet and spicy flavor of the pasta and the crunchiness of the peanut toppings. I can’t wait to have another order of this delicious duo.

Food Trip Friday: Fried Daing na Bangus and Pansit Miki


MILKFISH or Bangus (the Philippine National Fish) can be cooked in so many ways. You can fry it or cook it in different soup base like tamarind, guava, and green mangoes. My personal favorite is Daing — milkfish marinated in garlic and vinegar. Another Bangus recipe that make my mouth water is Sinigang sa Bayabas (Guava soup base).

I usually paired fried fish with sauteed vegetable, but this time I tried my version of sauteed Pansit Miki.

Pansit Miki with tofu, cabbage, carrots and seasoning.
