👩🍳A home-cooked meal, healthier and tasty. Malabar, Alugbati, or Vine Spinach, Sponge gourd, Squash or Pumpkin and spareribs for lunch. Eat healthy to be wealthy. Diabetic-friendly vegetables for lunch at home. Lutong bahay po na may alugbati, patola, kalabasa at sapareribs para sa pananghalian po.
👩🍳On the last day of our stay in Milan. We go around frustrated and really don’t wanna go home to work and live home and under this day. Although this is our first travel after the Pandemic also the first travel of this year 2022. We went shopping for some stuff for cooking. And I got my Starbucks cup too. We tried also the Branch of Jollibee in Milan and I tell you frankly, we are not satisfied with all the taste. We are used to European style already. It’s all strange for me. And for my daughter too, being born in Europe and we don’t have Jollibee in Vienna. Anyway, the following day we are leaving Milan and will be back in mundane activities in Vienna. Looking forward to the next travel vlog somewhere in Europe or in an Asian country.
👩🍳I found this stand at the farmers’ market in Naschmarkt selling different homemade organic sauces. I got myself some of their sauces for me to try at home. And today I tried their Umami sauce for my pork loin with cauliflower rice and scallions. It turned out good I added some honey too. Guys check out their shop online and they have Instagram and Facebook accounts too.
👩🍳Popular history says that it was invented in China and that Marco Polo brought the knowledge of this food to Venice. The spaghetti Polo encountered in the far east was made from either rice flour or hard wheat flour. Italian dried spaghetti is made from durum wheat semolina, but outside of Italy, it may be made with other kinds of flour. Here is another pasta spaghetti of recipe I want to share with you out of my preferences and creation from my humble kitchen.
150g Chicken Thighs Fillet
200g Feta Cheese
a handful of Green Peas, frozen or fresh
a cup of White Sauce, alternative milk but make it thicker mixing with Cornstarch
👩🍳The best time for dinner is between 5pm and 7pm. This gives the stomach and intestines enough time to digest the food they eat before the metabolism switches to sleep mode at night. The stress of the day is over, and the work is done. But in our case, if you are working from 11:30 before noontime until 10pm then you travel on the way home we need almost 30 minutes. Arrive at home almost half an hour before 11 pm then I have to cook for dinner. But luckily tonight I was already at around 6 pm so I have enough time to prepare our meal. So for tonight’s meal every Filipino, sinigang with Sea Bream and Shrimps, and fried squid. For dessert, I made a fruit cocktail with sour cream and grapes. Hubby is happy and of course my tummy too. I love the vegetables that it goes with this viand. happy prepping everyone.
👩🍳 Event gastronomy in Vienna, the culinary attractions in Vienna are diverse. If you are looking for something for everyone who is enthusiastic about a meal with a high entertainment value and event character, Vienna has a lot to offer. But these are small Restaurants in the city that are run by Asian people whom we love to try from time to time. Exempted is the Vegan ice which is run by Austrian and the Krah Krah Restaurant in the First District of Vienna which I tried with my ex-colleague. First Stop, lunch at Krah Krah Restaurant run by Austrian. 1980s Ale pub with the garden serving international food and drink including giant sandwiches. Rabensteig 8 A-1010 Vienna
The next one is one of our favourite Restaurants near Naschmarkt. With authentic Asian Cuisine. Restaurant Chinazentrum Zhong Xin For more than 15 years they have been spoiling guests from all over the world with traditional Chinese food and drinks at the Naschmarkt in 1060 Vienna. A Far Eastern ambience awaits you in our restaurant. “Zhongxin” means centre and their first location from 2002-to 2014 was on Rechte Wienzeile 29, 1040 Vienna. In 2014 they relocated to 1060 Vienna. Linke Wienzeile 44 1060 Vienna
The third one is Soya Noodles their meals are inspired by simple Asian cuisine. Prepare them daily from fresh ingredients and they do not use glutamate. They love coconut, ginger, chilli and Thai basil, so you can find them in most of their meals. Amerlingstraße 19, A-1060 Vienna
The last one is the Veganista Ice Cream. Run by two sisters who have been vegan for over 20 years and have been passionately pursuing a big dream: to produce honest and delicious ice cream. No artificial flavours, colours or powders. Simply the best ice cream with the best ingredients. Amerlingstraße 19, Vienna
👩🍳Eggplant has many health benefits to offer. Good for diabetics may help cells do a better job of processing sugar just like me. And best of all low in calories and sodium and is a great source of dietary fiber. I often eat eggplant. Today I cooked it with squid and a bit spicy. This year we don’t have eggplant in our Terrace Urban garden, unlike last year. Check out my Playlist under:⬇️
TERRACE URBAN GARDENING/ FROM FARM TO THE TABLE
About 6 pieces of Squid, cleaned
400ml Coconut Milk
4 pieces of Eggplant
some Olive Oil
3 pieces of Green Chillis, spicy or not spicy according to your preferences.
👩🍳With the fried rice with vegetables, only good things end up on the plate. Broccoli packs plenty of health benefits. while chicken thighs provide plenty of protein power. And thanks to provitamin A, carrots are good for our skin. It’s one meal you can’t ask for more.
Sardines fillet is breaded with Tempura and served with homemade Achara from my niece. Of course with rice, because we are Filipino. Achara is made from grated unripe Papaya originating from my country- the Philippines. This dish is often served as an accompaniment to fried or grilled foods, such as roast pork also to fish.
👩🍳The yellowish rice of Iloilo because of turmeric powder has to reach Vienna today. Remember my late mother who is fun of cooking this dish during all saints day or in Tagalog But my version is totally different from “Pista ng Minatay”. But my version is totally different from her. I don’t add meat like a chicken. I love this just purely kind seafood added. The Ilonggo’s undying love for their famous glutinous rice dish is a complete meal actually. With carbohydrates, protein and vitamins & minerals in just one spoonful. How about you do you love Valenciana too, how is your version of this? Let me know in the comment section down here.
👩🍳This time we visited Navigli Canal, which is fast becoming one of Milan’s most popular neighbourhoods, but there’s more to do here than see the canals from which the area takes its name. Also, we went to the Arch of peace which the Italians call “Arco Della Pace”, also we visited the “Santa Maria Delle Grazie” where you can find Leonardo Da Vinci’s Last Supper (Church of Holy Mary of Grace Chiesa di Santa Maria Delle Grazie) and meet up with my fellow Youtuber @johncel Vlog sa italya. Then we went to Chocolate Shop near Doumo. It was full of fun even though only for a short period of time. Nice meeting you Maricel. See you soon again.
