BREAKFAST WITH ME

Last Saturday, not the day before last Sunday (March 15, 2014) an unusual breakfast was held at our home. Actually it is a brunch, because we got up late-Vienna Time – 14:17 (2:17 pm)!

Brealfast with fried rice and Talong inihaw

Fried rice with grilled eggplant seasoned with sauteed shrimp paste, tomatoes, spring onions and chili flakes. Beside grilled eggplant with beaten egg for my daughter! If you are living in the vicinity of europe this kind of breakfast or brunch is unusual, only exist in the Philippines 😛

Scrambled egg with bacon, sliced green bell pepper and apples for breakfast

Sliced green bell pepper and apple plus sliced brown bread and beaten egg with bacon is my daughter’s fave for this week!

Cheese, mini tomatoes and brown bread for breakfast

Cheese for breakfast, which first catches the eye. It is even more important, so that breakfast not only looks good, but also at least as good taste with mini tomatoes and brown bread.

Breakfast for my colleagues

This was breakfast I prepared for my colleagues at Baxter. And Jana, one of my fave colleague baked this poppyseed-apple cake. I tell you was so…good!
With all these variety cold-cuts which I brought, different kinds of pickeled olives, turkey cheese and gouda cheese, boiled eggs, semmel (the famous austrian ban), french roll (Baguett), sliced brown bread, plum jam, sliced bell peppers: red, green and yellow (which is not in the picture), and butter.

Gaby's birthday treat

While this above was a breakfast treat by Gaby, also one of my colleague at work. Also a heavy one but so exciting just like what I’d prepared two weeks ago. It gives us and makes efficient work easily that day. We had fun during that break time before we continue the Saturday duty. 🙂

Oatmeal and Coffee with cinnamon powder

Yesterday’s breakfast for both of us, daughter and I. Oatmeal is high in fiber was a delicious breakfast choice. They said Oatmeal is very healthy and should be in every diet plan. Especially for building muscle, oatmeal offer many advantages, which you should definitely take advantage of. Oatmeal reduce Cholesterol value. To achieve this effect, it is necessary to eat oatmeal regularly. Simple and easy to prepare. I add a little bit of Natreen (a brand for a sweetener) instead of sugar and cooked with milk and given a little bit twist with cinnamon powder just the same with my coffee, adde before serving. Have a try so you know what I mean 😉

ABOUT, BAKING AND DESSERT

DADA’S BIKO

My hubby’s version of Biko!
I was craving for this few days ago and he promised he will do it for me. Said and done!
He was not so happy how it turned out but he said next time he will do it like his mother recipe they called it “ENKIWAR” (Ilocano version), but that’s another entry:-)

As you could see no “Latik” on top just plain biko. With this it reminds me my late nanay who used to cooked this during, fiesta, pasko and birthdays and all types of kakanin in the Philippines. That gives the native delicacy an infinite number of enjoyable possibilities.
