..Cooking!! Heheh. You know guys, before I had James, I never thought of spending time in the kitchen - cooking stuff. I can only cook hotdogs, noodles, canned corned beef and any friend stuff except fried fish. I am really scared sa mga tumatalsik na mantika while cooking. I am also not fond of cooking stew meals. I rely on Nanay, sisters and brothers or if all else fails, I'll just buy cooked stuff. When I was a kid and Mom used to cook, I never bothered myself checking out or even watching what she's up to. I'll just wait until it is served. Haha.
Two Sundays ago, I decided to cook. It was actually not planned at all. They just told me to cook it because they are already preparing spaghetti for no reason. I was the one who prepared the veggies though. It was actually "Ginisang Sayote". I really don't know how to cook it but I trusted my instict na lang.
I am not a good cook but I want to share this recipe (not sure if I can call it recipe anyway. Haha) for documentation purposes. So here it is!!
1 Onion, minced
3- 4 Garlic Cloves, minced
3 Sayote (cut into strips)
½ kilo Ground Pork
1 Tomato, slized thinly
1 Seasoning (optional) (I used AjiGinisa)
Salt and Pepper to taste
1. On a casserole, sautee garlic, onion and tomato until garlic turned slightly brown and onion and tomato is cooked. Add the ground pork and let it cook until it turned slightly brown too.
2. You may add the sayote/chayote. After 3 minutes, add water for about 2 – 3 cups depending on your desired amount of stew. You may add Seasoning or just Salt and Pepper to taste. Simmer for 5-8 minutes or until the sayote/chayote is cooked.
3. Serve with a smile =)
