Simply Delish

For my pallet that is. I know some people are not fond of what I eat...he he he. Our Uncle who lives in FL is nice enough to think of me and sent me some of these. A few years back they had oranges, and this year they have Apple Mangoes growing in the backyard.


While looking at them, I was thinking on what to do with it. I never liked the ones they sell in my local grocery stores. However, I can't stand looking at them and cut open one. It smell like Indian mangoes from back home and it taste like one too. I had so much, that I had to give some away and I force DH to eat some. He likes it all cut up. I don't have any choice and I did it for him. The below picture is slices of mangoes with saute shrimp paste. No drooling please...he he he


A friend of mine got 4 big pieces. I cannot drop it to her early when still a little crunchy because she moved and working the whole time I got them. She some very ripe, and she told me it smell so good not like store bought. Anyway if you like some, they are wide spread at Boyton FL. Just ask the owners and they will gladly give you some. From what I heard, they let it drop on the ground and most end in the garbage file.

Above is the picture of my dinner; white rice, saute pak choy and sweet potato tops with sardines on top. Let's eat, posting this makes me very hungry. For more FTF entry, please click the image below. Have a great weekend everyone.

Paksiw & Strawberry Banana Smoothie

This is my FTF entry for this week. Paksiw (sour broth) frozen baby bonito (tulingan). I settled for frozen ones, because this is very hard to find in my area. Always eaten with ton of rice...lol I don't have any other vegetables to mix with it but the pepper. I was lazy to go out (shopping) with the heat we are having.

And for dessert; strawberry banana smoothie. I was weeding my vegetable garden today and I was sweating a lot. What a nice drink to have! Very filling (sweet) and refreshing after soaking under a hot sun.

Cakes

We celebrated my YDS 4th birthday over the weekend. All four children requested to have ice cream cake for any birthday in the summer. And here is one of them, (so far).

Below is DH fathers day cake. I whipped this thing up a few hours before he got home from a meeting. Since he was away, I could not go to the grocery store to buy anything, but it turns out I have everything I needed to make this cake. I had to look very hard inside the pantry...lol.

Homemade chocolate cake, the recipe is on the Hershey cocoa powder container. I recommend the recipe because it is very moist. Try it out sometimes.
