I wanted to do this last week but some kind of got targeted of the word called "laziness" (~_~) ... that's why it's just now.. hemmm... it's not really interesting (I guess) but here's the food I made last week of which am missing and craving again now... (don't mind the date of the camera--it's one week late--, and etc. ahheheh..)...

ginataang-gulay(coconut milk mixed vegetables), fried fish, and paksiw na isda (fish stew)

By the way, here's my recipe of ginataang-gulay:

1 pack okra (sold in Asian or Oriental stores)
1 small bundle of kangkong
1 bundle mushrooms
1 pack big taro root(lavenderish color)
3 pieces onion leaves
1 small ginger
3 pieces big dried fish(optional)
1 big fresh ripe bell pepper(optional)
1 can (400 ml) coconut milk

(1.)Clean all the stuffs or wash again from refrigerator and set aside. (2.)Separate kangkong leaves from its stalk then cut squarely the taro root. (3.) Put the cut taro root into the pan and put 1 to 2 cups of water and boil, steam it for 1 or 2 minutes and after steaming, put the mushrooms, ginger, and bell pepper into it, then let it boil again. Then put okra, kangkong, onion leaves, dried fish , and the coconut milk. If you don't like to put dried fish or don't have any, just put salt to taste or knorr cubes. But take note if you otherwise put dried fish-- don't put salt anymore. And lastly, let it boil again. And done!

And about the fish stew, I just purchase that ready-to-eat and reheated for 1o minutes. It taste good when the mixed fish stuff soak for long minutes.
And about the fried fish, of course you know about it... (~_~) Enjoy eating!

    Hello Beck. Ngeeekkkk oi, upon opening your blog, I feel immediately hungry. That ginataan looks so delicious. I always craved for that one. By the way the date of my birthday is on June 30. Going back to the food, I bet you eat one big full plate of rice with that ginataan plus fried fish. Very good combination my friend. How's your day going? I hope everything is fine.Take care and enjoy your weekend.

    To Meryl, yeah mostly it's in can but there's also fresh in coconut husk in here that needs to do the "kagod"(bisaya term--forgot the tagalog and don't know the english of this word..) but for me it's still good and ready to hit the pan after opening it.. heheheh.. I found it cool for me.. heheh.. well, we have different likes.. heheh.. I hope you can see the coconut milk not in can Mer so you can cook ginataan too. By the way, I haven't knew that you like ginataan too-- I thought you didn't like it and now I know.. thanks Mer! kisses!
