Quick Recipes on the Go

Ahhh.. just finished having our late lunch for today with my brother’s kids. We are left at home since they (bro and the rest) will be going out to bring some paintings for an art competition. It’s already 11 pm this morning and I’m working when I realized that i have not yet prepared something for lunch and kids might already be hungry. Yay! I was too busy with my work that I didn’t see that the time passed by so quickly.

With no idea what to cook for lunch today, I just opened the fridge and I found chicken breasts and pork. At first I wanted to cook Chicken with pineapples but I found out that I have no pineapple tidbits on the pantry so I didn’t continue it and at least I have not thawed the chicken already. With the pork left to cook, I immediately started to think what to make out of it. Just frying it will be a bit boring and I don’t think my nephew will eat it fried pork bec. he likes something with soup.

I opened the ref once again and see what veggies I have, good thing I have some potatoes, string beans and cabbage. Perfect! I made Pork Nilaga today, another very quick recipes that I’m already used cooking. It’s just so easy. All you need to do it boil the pork in water together with peppercorns, onion, and a bit salt. Once the pork is tender already, put in the veggies and season with salt or to make it tastier, a patis (fish sauce) is much nicer. Cook for several mins. until all veggies are done.

Isn’t that easy? What about you what’s your lunch or dinner for today? I know there are times that we simply get tired of cooking but easy recipes will do the trick.

  1. I really know the time to cook, but still I am hungry. In those cases i make a dish using the oven: meat (any kind) and potatoes :) that's pretty much it (and sometimes a salad).
