She wasn't very happy with results  -  I told her the kids don't care what it looks like as long as it's sweet. No frosting on mine.

The Red Snapper and salad look delicious, we don't have Lapu Lapu sold in my region you are blessed it's my favorite fish followed by Cod, baked trout and Halibut... I end up just buying those large frozen boneless, skinless fish fillets cooked liked fish fillets or baked with butter and dill weed.

To keep it going - her breakfast vs mine (home made super crunchy peanut butter on home made bread)- have put on 4 kg since she started baking cakes and deserts :biggrin_01: Tata is getting better at the decorating - still too much sugar for me.

I haven't had peanut butter with the crushed peanuts in a long time, interesting, I like the peanut butter in the morning or later on at night.

I had the mini buko (coconut pies) this morning, warmed it up in the toaster, they sell them near us for 15 pesos each.

That all looks really good, and relatively healthy (compared to a Western processed food diet).  Not too sure about the trotters though.

MCA you and I apparently have the same taste in fish, my favorite is red snapper followed by lapu-lapu, halibut and cod (haven't found cod here in Phoenix in years, but in the 1980s I worked as a cook at Long John Silver's so have fileted and fried many a cod fillet.)  I also have a love affair with sardines.

Who doesn't love Halibut. Too bad it cost a fortune outside of Alaska. I think last time I saw it at a local grocery store, it was around $30 lb.

I'm also a big fan of fresh Tanigue and Tuna that we used to buy regularly in the Philippines. It's probably 4-5 times the cost here in the USA.

Make my own - buy no-skin peanuts in Carbon (unit #2 - several vendors) P80 Kg for small uncooked, 110 for large uncooked,120 large cooked no salt, 130 large cooked salted (too much salt).

I get the large uncooked ones -  Tata dosen't trust the oil they use,  deep fry for 75 / 80 sec  - spread out on paper in big metal bowl to stop cooking - let cool down a little - blend / chop about 2 cups to crunchy size I like then another 2 cups to smooth consistency, adding veggie oil very sparingly (fine line between smooth and runny).

Hint heating peanuts in microwave a little helps extract the oil if precooked and cold. Add just a small amount of salt.  Sugar if want to.

Once smooth add the crunchy ones back in just enough to blend.

BTW - peanut butter is about P250 / 600 g for local variety in Metro.

Our blender is only 600 Watts so constantly ramping up / down scooping off sides, until smooth.

I use the small ones for bar peanuts - great with beer

2 cups - fry -  45  / 55 sec - don't bother cooling,  oil helps spices stick - add spices (Chipolte  Powder, a little Garlic Salt, a lot of Garlic Powder, Chili Power) :biggrin_01:

I like the small buko and small pandesol but all I can get here in my area in the US are these huge bun type.

Nah - I get her whatever spice, equipment, utensils she wants. She's also really into presentation.

Gas Stove / oven, microwave, air fryer, deep fryer, convection oven, round electric skillet, toaster, and of course rice cooker.

This what I get in return

Baked chicken looks nice... I bake ours in a large 7.5 hot air cooker and it looks shrimp salad or potato salad?  Dang... I'll be right over!  And gravy!

Only us two - 3 L

I think it was Cole Slaw

Most of the time that food is for me alone - Tata prefers fish. I do eat fish - 2nd pic - Black Tiger beer, salad (greens, Feta / white cheese, tomatoes, olive oil - no black olives (out of stock sir)), crispy flat bread, breaded pan fried squid (I like the head), butterfly prawns with garlic butter, French fries - the dipping sauce is banana catsup / habanero sauce.

This  recipe is from her time in Kuwait - Biryani (chicken & rice)  Basmati Rice from Landers, hard boiled egg, Okra, green beans, lettuce,  and banana lumpia for desert

For me pork chops and Okra cooked with - Air fryer. Tata ordered "thick pork chops"  1/2" :ROFLMAO: from butcher in Carbon. She said any thicker and very tough. Explained that when she cooked in japan could get good pork but not in Hong Kong.

Her dinner was  fish head, liver, and rice

My dinner pork chops, okra, large hot pepper, lettuce, rice with soy sauce /Thai Peppers,  the rendering from the chops for dipping. desert was Mango float with graham cracker filling and a mango, papaya, watermelon smoothie.

The okra was not slimy as is typical when she boils it. I like it better this way.

She saves the fat, bones, rendering for flavoring in pancit
