One of my friends here in Weirton who is also a b bicolana called me and said that she has some goodies to share. So the day after my birthday, we went to her house and picked the goodies up. She gave me Pancit Bato (the noodles that I love from Bicol), Dahon ng Gabi (taro leaves), tinapang bangus (smoked milkfish), and some cooking mix. It was a perfect timing because I was craving for laing.
I let hubby try the pancit bato, I think if I am not mistaken, this is called pancit bato as it is originally made in Bato Cam. Sur. Of all the pancit, this is my favorite of all time.
Then I made the laing,YUM! Ate Agnes told me to put the bangus to make it tasty but I decided to just put a can of sardines and pork meat in it. Making laing is very easy, all you need is coconut milk (3 cans for a pack of taro leaves), hot peppers (I put 4 jalapeños), shrimp paste (optional), ginger, onion and that's it.
You can cook the meat by sauteing it or you can just let it cook in the coconut milk. Do you eat laing?
Since hubby don't like the "marijuana", that's how he calls the taro leaves lol, I made him some adobong sitaw.
Sometimes, when I am in the mood to cook, I cook 2 or three menus but when Ms. Lazy is visiting me, I don't cook at all hahaha.
