Coffee Break Ver 1.26

Sorry Jan for my late response for this week's coffee break. Been hectic with work and of course helping Hubby with his job application(s).

Anyways, the topic for the week is very timely for me since everyday I always think hard on what to cook for dinner. As much as possible I don't want to rely for cold-cut products and the ones that are in the can. I want to serve food that is healthy and delicious as well! That's my main goal everyday.

So far, I've learned to cook easy recipes that Hubby loves to eat (most of them which is I'm thankful for). I'm so proud and pleased with myself when I see my husband wolfing down the meal that I cooked for him. So that motivates me to cook well...hehehe.

There are still lots of Filipino dishes that I want to cook... so let me answer this week's question:

What dish have you been dreaming to prepare?

First on the list will be - Adobo. I know that it's very easy to cook since all you have to do is put all the ingredients in a casserole or a pot then let it simmer until the pork/chicken is cook. But I just don't want any normal Adobo. I want my Adobo to be tastier with a twist. So I have to figure out how to do it.

Second on the list will be - Kare-kare. The only vegetables that I eat on this Filipino dish are the stringbeans and the squash but since Hubby loves vegetables, I want to serve him this kind of food.

Third is - Embutido. I really love eating home-made meatloaf! One of my female officemate told me that it's very easy to make but I'm having doubts about it since it involves steaming which I haven't figure out how to do it. But I would love to create a Filipino meatloaf of my own!

when you saute the meat, add oyster sauce so it will be creamy!;)
