Craving this sardines

I'm craving into  Filipino food last weekend I bought fresh fish  when I got there I was surprise they got many all kinds of fish and I see my favorite fish sardines, anyhow aside on this they have  also shrimps I supposed to buy shrimps  but I thinking I rather buy more sardines because I'm craving this fish I would buy shrimps next time. I miss eating sardines it reminds me when I was in Philippines the way when we cook we mix with vinegar,  Genger, salt, and also you can fried it if you want, 
we  eat like this, you can also grilled this fish so delicious my craving are satisfied after I fried and grilled. My son watching me when I eat he does  eat.
 it is portable food that doesn’t need to be heated.
But it can be cooked and flavored. Our favorite sardine recipe at home add vinegar and soy sauce to the crushed sardines  heat the contents, and serve over rice.

Pancit Noodles with shrimps

I’m starving for noodles pancit last weekend   feel a bit more comfortable to eat Filipino food than the food stack on the fridge. I eat american food feel  like not good all the time to eat the food that I am not used to it. I tel my honey that whenever were done shopping for grocery we have to stop by at Mayport   to buy fish and shrimps. That"s what happen when we got there basically when we get there I see some fresh fish, clumps, Squid and other seafood. I am happy bought some Shrimps and Mussels so happy to cook my Filipino food  my week is not complete without eating my Pinoy food  although when we buy seafood I make sure I freeze the rest of the fish and mussels because if I am starving i well cook again me and my honey would love to eat asian food.  I’m gonna start buying things like giant bags of pancit canton noodles.  And then I’m going to stir fry them with shrimp and veggies.
The thick noodles soak up all the flavor of the sauteed garlic,  Water soy sauce, fish sauce, and that fresh squeeze of calamansi  juice lime Throw some meat,  whatever, in there with the fresh veggies. It was really, really good.
I added cilantro if you want  is not pinoy seasoning it's good though


1 lb. raw, tail-off shrimp.
2 tablespoons oil.
3 cloves garlic,  slice of Bell peppers
 carrots slice,   8 ounces dry pancit canton noodle,
3 cups chicken stock. Or  you can put Water 3 cups, if you don't have chicken stock .
2 tablespoons soy sauce, 1 tablespoon fish sauce.
     Calamansi (or lime) juice to taste.
     Sliced green onions for topping.

  1. Mince the garlic and onion. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet. Add garlic and onion and stir-fry until soft, about 3 minutes. Add shrimp and cook, stirring frequently, until no longer translucent, about 3-5 minutes. Remove  from heat and set aside.  Peel and grate the carrot. Add another tablespoon of oil into the skillet and stir fry the vegetables until tender-crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. In a large pot, bring the chicken stock, soy sauce, and fish sauce to a boil. Add the pancit noodles and boil until the noodles are soft, about 5 minutes. Add the shrimp and vegetables to the pot and stir to combine.
  3. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to a large skillet and add the contents of the pot. Stir fry the mixture for about 10 minutes. When most of the liquid has been absorbed, remove from heat and stir in the Calamansi  juice then serve with rice.

Craving for Onions with steak

I was looking our fridge and I found out there is beef  on the fridge  I was planning to cook the beef and make a steak  I like steak ever since i was young I like the way my Mom cook steak for us that's why keep thinking this a good idea makes me miss my family back home in Philippines have to cook now beef steak since i know we have other ingredient  left we bought groceries on the weekend so I had  to cook the steak I'm not a good perfect cooker but when it come for cooking I'll make sure  have all ingredients to prepared for cooking otherwise beef steak in not delicious. I get excited about cooking again all the rich, melting, tender meat and roasted veggies are enough to make my taste curl.  I like to eat with mash potatoes, sorry the pic. is not here  I will do anything for a bit of mash winter is the perfect excuse for me to bury my face in it’s creamy indulgence. I don’t plan my meals today I know I want mashed potato, so I plot what else I can make as an excuse to have it on the side.

don't like that my steak doesn't onions because steak without onions for me is not complete. Anyways it was a perfect dinner for us my son does not like onions what can I do I am the only one who eat steak with onions with rice, I was glad my starving stomach was full Oh goodness the food was perfect specially its very cold so yummy ever take a look the photo i posted super delicious isn't it.
