ABOUT

EASTER MONDAY

Bonding on Easter Monday with NOYTUBE BFF Dana together with our Kids:)
European countries celebrate Easter and Easter Monday as public holidays. In several countries in Europe Holy Week and the week after Easter is a student and school holidays. Since her 2 kids just came back from Germany after easter vacation we decided to have a half-day bike with our kids at Praterallee.

Really we all had great time together with our kids and the weather was so friendly. Everyone enjoyed biking.

Then we decided to have our late lunch-early dinner at T.G.I.F. (Thanks Gos It’s Friday)http://www.tgifridays.at/

This was my son’s dinner–Balsamic Glazed Chicken Caesar

Balsamic-marinated chicken breast fire-grilled and drizzled with balsamic glaze. Served with chopped romaine tossed in Caesar Vinaigrette with shaved Parmesan, crunchy croutons and fresh grape tomatoes.
— at T.G.I. Fridays.

…and Roni’s Cheese Burger
— at T.G.I. Fridays.

My Dinner<<< Jack Daniel’s® Ribs

A full rack of seasoned baby back pork ribs is slow-cooked in-house, then fire-grilled till fall-off-the-bone tender and basted in Jack Daniel’s® glaze. Served with crispy seasoned fries and ginger-lime slaw.
— at T.G.I. Fridays.

BFF Dana’s Chicken Quesadilla
They came with caramelized onions, peppers and cheese and are served with avocado ranch dressing and pico de gallo chile. The chesse is great!

Daniel’s tower also an art of chicken quesadillas with avocado ranch dressing.

My son tried also the Pecan-Crusted Chicken Salad

Warm and crispy pecan-crusted chicken served on a bed of chopped romaine lettuce and mixed greens tossed in Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing with dried cranberries, Mandarin oranges, sweetened pecans, celery and crumbled bleu cheese.
— at T.G.I. Fridays.

WE ENJOYED THE FRESH FLAVORS OF MEXICO
The Mexican kitchen is a celebration for the palate. The combination of briefly roasted meat, fresh vegetable and spicy sauces wrapped into thin flat bread or pita from wheat (Tortillas) or (Tacos) already began its triumphant advance years ago outside from Mexico. The kitchen chef continued to go still another piece and to interpret the classical prescriptions again. On the one hand with strong Bleu Cheese Dressing, so the English Touch on the other hand with Sriracha Sauce and fruits, to the south Asian kitchen ajar. Also the Southern State kitchen of the USA could do their influence with spicy BBQ or Southwestern Sauce and in south California Shrimps not to be missing. Said like a celebration for the palate. In addition fruit cocktails and Mexican beer.

PALM SUNDAY 2012

When is Palm Sunday 20112?
Palm Sunday, the final Sunday before Easter Sunday, marks the beginning of Holy Week. Christian churches distribute palms on Palm Sunday to commemorate Christ’s triumphal entrance into Jerusalem, when palm branches were placed in His path, before His arrest and Crucifixion on Good Friday. Filipinos here in Vienna joined the worldwide celebration of Palm Sunday, a Christian feast that marks the beginning of Holy Week, which concludes on Easter Sunday.

This was my lunch today Beef meat with Broccoli.
After attending the holy Sunday mass we went straight ahead at MILLENNIUM CITY to have lunch and at the same time to celebrate my friend’s 62th Birthday (ate Nina). I was wondering if we could start a list of all the restaurants that give free meals to people on their birthdays. But I don’t think so…..
She brought “Pansit” and the rest she ordered from different consignor inside Millennium City!

“Pansit” (Pancit) which she cooked at home and brought it all the way at Millennium City.

Didi’s lunch (my daughter), Crispy Canard also with Broccoli and Radish-Carrots Salad.

Mercy’s lunch, Crispy Chicken with Baby Mais, Broccoli and also with Radish-Carrots Salad.
Almost everything she got it from consignor “KYOTO”!
After lunch we had our coffee with sliced cake.
I consider myself very fortunate to have good friends here on earth… I think I am blessed when it comes to that area of life. I may not be wealthy when it comes to finances but when it comes to love ones and friends, I guess I am a Millionaire.

Palm Sunday is an important celebration in the Christian calendar. It is a moveable feast that is always held on the Sunday prior to Easter. The event marks Jesus’ arrival into Jerusalem shortly before his trial and crucifixion. The day is usually associated with worshippers carrying blessed palm leaves or a substitute. A palm frond denotes victory. There are many different and interesting Palm Sunday customs around the world.

It is a real family day in Jordan with church services being well attended. People make crosses out of palm leaves and children take palm fronds and olive braches to church. The service starts with a procession. Later the priest uses a branch to sprinkle parishioners with holy water. Almost the same as what Father Ron did today at St. Johann Kapistran at Forsthausgasse, 20th District of Vienna.

PURE VEGGIES

BUTTON MUSHROOMS IN COCOMILK

ADOBO SA GATA ang tawag ko dito, using button mushrooms. Napapanahon at tamang-tama ffpara sa LENTEN SEASON! For those who doesn’t want to have meat for their meals during LENTEN DAYS… It is in season kaya mura at fresh na mabibili dito sa lugar ko. You can use coconut milk or cream. Mushrooms are fatless and you can’t make them render fat no matter how long you cook them. You’ll only make them shrink if you cook them for too long. Mushrooms brown in oil fast. This is easier and simpler.

I used apple vinegar for this recipe because of its less pungent aroma and more subtle flavors. I also used fresh ground pepper for the same reason.

YOU NEED…….

* 500 g fresh Button Mushrooms
* about 1 tbsp. minced Garlic
* 250 ml Coconut milk or Coconut cream
* 3 tbsp. Apple Vinegar
* 3 tbsp. Vegetable oil
* Salt
* Fresh ground Pepper
* fresh chopped Chive for garnishing

HOW TO…….

* Dab the mushrooms with absorbent paper towels to removed excess water.

* I cook first for about 8 minutes the cocomilk over medium heat.

* Heat the vegetable oil. Add the garlic until brown and mushrooms . Cook, stirring, until lightly browned. Season with salt and pepper. Pour in the vinegar and cook over medium heat, uncovered(3 minutes).

* Add to the coconut milk and continue cooking over medium heat until the cocomilk reduces. Sprinkle with chopped chive before serving.

 

ZUCCHINI WITH TOFU (tokwa)

In tropical countries like the Philippines where vegetables are abundant almost all-year round, stir-fried vegetable dishes are easy to make. One practical guideline is that prices of certain vegetables vary depending on the season. As a rule, vegetables are more expensive during the rainy months; cheap and plentiful during the summer months. Since zucchini is very cheap….I decided to mix with tofu alternative for meat during lenten season.

YOU NEED…….

* 4 pcs. Zucchini, sliced
* 1/2 a cake Tofu, fried cut into cubes
* a handful cilantro, chopped
* 1/2 a head of garlic sliced
* 1 tsp. vinegar
* salt and pepper
* some vegetable oil
