Pizza and Pasta For 2014

I have been away blogging and I do miss to write food blogs again. Well this will be my try for this year 2014 and I will be happy if I can buy my own domain name and transfer everything that I have from this wonderful site that I have started long time back.

Well I just want to share what we had when we went out. It was pizza and pasta from Domino's and since I have been craving for pizza for so long, I really do like to order Barbecue Chicken and Cheese Pizza. I really adore Domino's give away sprinkles (Chili flakes and Oregano). I always do keep them even when we finish our pizza, we used to take these home and I use it as a sprinkle for my other recipes and it makes the food perfect.

I do like pan pizza than crust types and of course pizza will always be enjoyable when hot and fluffy soft. But I don’t have a problem even when it is already cold. For me pizza is my comfort food and I like to take it with any cold beverages like soda, juice and beer of course.

Well about the pasta that we ordered, it was Italian pasta on their list but I was not satisfied on the taste because it was too sour for my taste and pasta with white sauce shouldn't be tasting sour. I told my husband that it looks like they have used sour cream on the pasta instead of just using a plain white creamy sauce for the real Italian pasta. I do know because I have been cooking and preparing white sauce pasta for my family and I just don’t know why on earth the taste was really sour that time we ordered our pasta.

Anyway, I guess this depends on the variations of white sauce pasta to use but I really haven’t heard anything about using sour cream if ever you have to mix it on pasta. By the way what is important is that my tummy was full and we went home with our remaining pizza on the box and we ate it after dinner. I just hope that I will have more chance of sharing some food menu and restaurant experiences I have in here. Have a blessed New Year to all my readers and God bless you.

Green Mangoes with Bagoong Alamang

Bagoong alamang or also known as shrimp paste is my favorite for dipping green mangoes. Here in the Philippines it is really a great combination for unripe mangoes and what I like the most was Indian mangoes which is available in summer season.

I also do like shrimp paste in kare-kare which is a famous dish here. But anyway I will be posting kare-kare some other time, but for now I have to talk about green mangoes. This was given to us by our auntie in Sta. Rosa Laguna where they have mango trees which keep on growing sweet green Indian mangoes.

I remember when we were kids; we just wash off these mangoes and eat it straight away without using any knife for removing the peel. Now that my teeth are already weak after I gave birth, I can’t do the same thing.
I do like shrimp paste that are spicy hot, but this one on the photo was without chili because my family would not like much chili on it.

My Son loves Pizza Seafood Marinara

If I have money I will buy this kind of pizza which was really addictive and yet not expensive. We bought it at only P170.00 which was sliced in 8 pieces of yumminess. It has tahong (seashell), anchovies, squid, shrimp, koros (smallest shrimps), crab meat, onion and cheesy cheddar.

We bought it at Chef Arnolds Pizza just nearby our place and it was my first time to hear this type of pizza joint but it was really a steal if you would ask me since I really love their pizza when I tasted it. I will want to buy and try more of their other pizza variants such as New Yorker, Hawaiian, Pepperoni and Mushroom, Margherita, Chicago, Wild Wild Mushroom Cajun Pizza and more.

By the way if you ask me, I only gave my little one some pieces of seashell, anchovies and shrimp, not yet the squid meat. He also likes to eat cheddar cheese.

How I wish I can get juice more on my online money so that I can buy these delicious pizzas on my mothers’ birthday and also to celebrate another month milestone for my little one. I also like to add in the list and celebrate Father’s Day next week. How I really have a lot of things in mind, wishing all the best. Have a yummy and tasty food trip to all.

Want some Dimsum soup?

We checked this soup long time back before doing our monthly grocery and I can say that it is not my regular soup. It can look so yummy especially on a cold rainy day and you can really perspire after eating it. This soup though is not what I really favor of because it was a combination of ingredients which on my own opinion was a mismatch. But its okay, we do have different tastes for food and I really respect if you would like this too. This soup is with pork wanton, crab meat, chicken bits and boiled egg. It might have missed the real flavor that I really wanted and expected, but anyway, it was something for the tummy to get filled. The noodles was not really cooked well since it was that hard and rubbery. The price was just affordable in the pocket, but if I may have to get back again in the restaurant, I will still prefer to order other menus that they have.

Looking oily on this photo, but it was just fine. You can just add some fish sauce, calamansi (local lemon) here in the Philippines and some ground black pepper to make it more delicious. You can also add some chili oil if you want it spicy hot.

Who wants some Squid Adobo?

Adobo is a famous dish in the Philippines. Whether you have tasted it or not, it has different ways of preparing it depending on region. For us, we do include the black ink of the squid, although some countries may find it yucky and somewhat taboo if they really don’t eat squid. You just need to clean the squid and remove the plastic looking strip inside it as you cook it. You don’t even have to include much water since when you cook squid, it will automatically remove off the water in its body. So when preparing this dish, what we do is to put all the ingredients in the squid like soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, black pepper, bay leaf, oil, salt and tablespoons of water. Sorry I won’t be including the quantity of the ingredients since this depends on the number of squid you include plus the taste will vary too, if you like it less salty or if you would like it not too sour since it has vinegar, you need to taste the mixed sauce in the ingredients before putting it together with the squid. This recipe is easily cook so you don’t need to overdo it and you don’t want it to be so dry so slow to medium flame in stove will be enough to cook this wonderful and yet delightful dish. Again, as I have said a while ago, some may never like this dish because of the blackish color of the squid ink. It may not be that appealing to some, but to the regular customers eating adobo, I mean the original Adobo nation, Philippines, this is one delicious recipe that you should not miss out particularly if you visit the country Philippines. You can eat this recipe with hot rice. I haven’t tried eating it with flat bread or any types of bread. But there is nothing wrong in trying out other types of food to pair it with since this is still Adobo recipe. You can never go wrong with Adobo food. But if you have any allergic reaction to seafood, then you may skip on this recipe to be safe. Have a nice day friends!
