Fish Paksiw

I so love fish paksiw or fish cooked in vinegar and some vegetables. I spotted a packed of Trout fish at Costco the other day. I so love fish so a thought came to mind, I would cooked fish paksiw then. When I cooked fish or any meat and has a lot of vinegar I see to it I cooked it with my glasswares. I feel safe in glasswares than other cooking goes my photos of my fish paksiw.

Sardines, Misua & Kalabasang Puti

                                   Here is my version of misua with white squash. I remember this viand too well becasuse this is my favorite dish to cook when I get too lazy to prepare anything. I mixed it with sardines the one that you can buy in any oriental store that is why the color is red because of the tomato sauce from sardines.

Saute onion, garlic then tomatoes

Put the sardines 

Here is the white sqaush chopped in big cubes

Put the white squash put a little water then let it boil

When the squash is tender put the misua noodles and let it simmer seasoned it with salt and pepper

Wild Blue Flower

We have many of this in our yard this time of the year. I like it because the hues of blue is very pretty almost to a lavender in color. This flower is so tiny and is close to ground that I have to lean almost laying on the ground to take the shot.

Beef Stir Fry

This is my version of beef stir fry. I do shunned from too much oil good thing this recipe is not that oily for stir fry. I prepare garlic and onion minced, then small carrots, water chestnuts and pineapple chunk. When everything is cook I put flour mix in water continue stirring cover and let it simmer for a little bit. Then you are done with hot rice my dinner is good!
