Last night during blog hopping i read one post of Rhyheanne in one of her blog (It's not Just A Blog). It is about a dish she ate for late lunch or early dinner. When i saw the photo, i craved for it. So, i decided to try it. This morning, I bought 2 pcs. foot long hotdog, 3 eggs and 2 tomatoes. I divided the hotdog into 3 and fried. What about the eggs? I cooked it the Bicolana way. This is i did:
1. Sliced the tomato and marinate it in salt for 3 minutes.
2. In a pan, i saute the crushed siling labuyo and add the tomatoes.
3. Add the scrambled egg and stir gently.
4. Serve hot.
Hmmm.. Yummy.. Yummy..
Thanks to Rhyheanne. This is the first time i cooked the egg this way.. Haha.. I usually scrambled the egg and fried. Thanks for the ideas Rhyheanne. The total cost of these? 45.00 pesos. Footlong is 10.00 pesos each. 5.00 per egg and2.00 per tomato.

Today, we went to Paco, Manila for my husband's medical exam. While waiting for my husband, my uncle texted me if i have time to go to Raon to buy projector. To make the long story short, after my husband's medical exam we went to Raon to canvass the price of the said projector. While we were there, i noticed a lot of people queued in a diner. For curiosity reason, we asked the people there what it is. They said the diner's specialty is fresh lumpia and its very delicious. So, my hubby and i decided to try it. How does it taste?
Hmmmmm... for me, it's delicious! I'm not a vegetable eater but when i try it, i really like it.. The taste of peanut with sugar is good, the veggies is fresh and the sauce is like a caramel, not so sweet but perfect! Plus, the price is very cheap. It's only P16.00/pc.
So, next time when you go to Raon, Quiapo, Manila. Try to eat fresh lumpia in Globe Lumpia House.
By the way, we waited for almost 20 minutes before our turn to make an order and served.
My hubby planned to cook Sauteed Sayote with Misua but in the end it became Sinigang sa Kalamansi. How it happened? Hubby told me that while he's cooking and taste it he thought that Sinigang sa Kalamansi is better. Good thing we have lime in the refrigerator. I forgot to take the picture of it while newly cook but i captured the leftover. haha..

I put the leftover in pan, while boiling i add pork cube, salt, pepper and 2 cups of water to reduce the sour taste. Boiled for 3 minutes then i add the misua. Boiled again for 3 minutes. And presto!
