Whaaaaaaat a day
Everyone wanted a piece of my head
It was the day before Holy Thursday
The last day of the week for a nation looking forward to a long weekend ...
I was very tired
Empty stomach ...
I just wanted some comfort food
Something to lull me to sleep ...
For those unused to the Filipino penchant for shortcuts and acronyms -that's C2 for Classic Cuisine
Classic because it pretty much serves Filipino dishes that are well known and popular
Cuisine to reflect the flair with which the food is plated or presented
Filipino food that is good to eat and good to look at.
The food that comforts me?
The reason I chose to eat here tonight?
The reason I take cholesterol busting statins?
Ta dah ...
It's Crispy Kare-Kare
I love this
It is Crispy Pata -with kare-kare sauce
Two of the Pinoy's fave foods put together as one
Cholesterol plus cholesterol equals cholesterol
Add a decent dose of white rice for a carbo boost
Take some sweetened gulaman and sago to push it all down
And you are set for a blast off into a health buffs nightmare
But clearly a foodies delight ...
This stuff is goooooooooood
Crunchy crispy "balat" - (almost "chicharonish" in consistency)
Tender "pata" meat - (complete with "taba")
Tasty kare2 sauce - (thick stewed peanut sauce)
With bagoong on the side to boot - (alaaaaaaaaaaat )
Blood rushes to my stomach as the digestive juices go on overdrive
My speech slows down
My eyes start to droop
A sense of wooze prevails
It is time for post digestion slumber
It has been a good way to end a bad day ...
As the blog says -life is short
