There is something about walking into a clean grocery store and walking through the produce section smelling the fresh fruits and vegetables. I love the smell of fresh lettuce, bell peppers, onions, cabbage and tomatoes
Quite honestly, I am not a fan of the fresh FISH section, though they say we should eat fish on a daily basis in order to maintain good health.
I could spend an hour or two walking through the produce section taking in the smells and looking at the fresh fruits and vegetables.
My favorite food of all time in the Philippines and thanks to my sister-in-law Gwen for taking the time to prepare these for me. There are plenty of banana plants in the Cagayan valley so it is just a matter of looking for the plants that have a banana flower on them.
I wished that I still lived in a region where banana flowers are readily available…but, nevertheless, I am looking forward to my return trip to the Cagayan Valley for the great food!
This is a great lunch or dinner with a heaping scoop of white rice!
I love Tocilog, it consists of cut up sausage, a fried egg and a heaping scoop of rice. Usually white rice is served in the Philippines…although there are exceptions as each restaurant has it’s own cooks and has their own way of preparing breakfast. I love my plate of Tocilog with a heaping cup of coffee….with plenty of cream and sugar.
In the Philippines rice is served with every meal, so a spoon is always a necessity. I learned the art of eating with two spoons! One spoon is used to hold the rice and the second spoon is used to PUSH the rice onto the first spoon. Here in the states a piece of bread is often used to PUSH food onto a spoon or fork. I suppose many other methods could be used to accomplish the same task, but this method works BEST for me!
