Tinola - Project 365 # 74

I made some tinola (Chicken Ginger Stew with Vegetables) the other day because my husband was craving for it. He's been craving for it actually for weeks now but I wasn't able to make some because the chayote that was available in walmart are old already and it cost almost 2 bucks a piece.. geez. When we went to Pittsburgh last weekend, we discovered a new oriental market on the way so we dropped by and bought some asian goodies.
Over at Oriental Market, Chayote Squash only costs  85 cents each.  I also got  some  pechay or bokchoy (that's what I used  in replacement to  pepper leaves).  Mr. K and the Burritos loved it, I am glad their appetite s are back!
March 15, 2011:
  • Ms. Burrito has a class picture today so I made sure that I did not forget it wink.
  • I made  some omelet for our breakfast and ate it with rice.
  • I am doing laundry right now.
  • We are going to visit my FIL later on when Ms. Burrito gets home from school.
Are you up to the challenge on posting a photo a day?

Hi Rose!

Man, that looks so good! Are you making a cookbook? If not, maybe you should.

I love the slide show of your family at the bottom of the post too. You guys are so sweet.

Thanks so much for stopping by to say hello ... I appreciate it very much.

Best and God bless,

Oh how I love tinolang manok although I want it the original way with green papaya and sili leaves. You compensate the changed veggies with chilli pepper, hehehe. I pity you for spending 85 cents to a dollar for just a piece of chayote. Well that's the price you have to pay for staying in a foreign country. The things you were so accustomed to eat before are now so expensive. But of course there are countless benefits to compensate for this thing. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
