My Son's Birthday

 Hello all! We just celebrated my son's birthday and of course, Filipino dishes were served!

For birthdays, we always have the noodles for long life. The longer the noodle strands are, the better. So we had pancit and bihon. We also had the egg rolls or lumpia. They're wrapped veges or meat. We had the marinated ground beef wrapped with egg roll wrappers and fried. We also had fried chicken. Americans love them. And the rice cooker filled with white rice!

These food are also great when eaten the next day. That is why we Filipinos always get to go home with packed food. We call it BH (Bring Home). We find it amusing but at the same time we enjoy taking some food home. We minimize left-overs and we get to enjoy more the food especially if we miss to try the dish at the party. Bringing it home is a must!

Chicharones (Pork Rind) and Vinegar: A Delicious Duo

 Have you tried crunchy fried pig's skin with fat or what we call pork rinds? Filipinos call it Chicharon. Hubby calls it chicharones. I think they call it the same here. I read Chicharones on the package. It could also be the brand.

Hubby and son has learned this from me. I dip these in vinegar with chili. They are really yummy!

I grew up eating pork rinds with spiced vinegar in Philippines. They are unhealthy but good. Just eat moderately. We can even eat these with rice lol

So when I got here, I eat it the same way, with cider vinegar though. More sour but still yummy!

Try it!
